, Jun 13, 2012 - InfoComm, Las Vegas – June 13, 2012Vidyo, Inc., the first company to deliver personal telepresence, and Barco, a pioneer in visualization technology, today announced that a joint effort to integrate Vidyo’s award-winning software-based video communications platform with Barco’s innovative imaging solutions is on display at InfoComm 2012.

This week, the companies are unveiling a technology demonstration which conveys the integration of these two platforms: the first 4K immersive video conferencing and collaboration system. The integrated solution offers unprecedented flexibility, multi-modal content display capabilities, with richmulti-pointHDvideo communications. The system enables flexible layouts on a single screen and displays up to 16 high quality streams totaling 8 mega pixels – including ultra-high resolution data sharing up to 3 megapixels . Barco’s complete 140” virtual canvas offers this unlimited layout flexibility at the highest resolution for participants, content or both on the same screen. The demonstration will take place at InfoComm 2012 in Las Vegas, June 13 – 16, Booth # N2721.

Barco, a global technology company, designs and develops enterprise visualization solutions that optimize productivity, encourage team collaboration and enhance business efficiency. “Barco prides itself in having the best display and presentation technologies and has always believed that networked video collaboration capabilities would add huge value to our platform,” said Hans Dekeyser, Barco’s Vice President Enterprise Visualization North America.

“The demonstration of the Vidyo and Barco platforms at InfoComm is a unique opportunity to see what is possible when ‘best of breed’ innovations come together,” said Amir Shaked, Vidyo’s SVP of Product Management.  “Currently the choice is between hugely expensive telepresence systems or lesser-quality, hard-to-use video conference rooms. We are setting a new standard in terms of telepresence quality, flexibility and price point that create new markets unaddressable by legacy technologies.
