Share

, Oct 17, 2011 - HACKENSACK, NJ – October 17, 2011Vidyo, Inc., today announced the general availability of VidyoMobile™ for the iPhone 4S, and showed a video conference with four endpoints plus content sharing on Apple’s latest smart phone. With the stronger processor of the iPhone 4S, Vidyo delivers the same unmatched experience on the iPhone 4S that it delivers on the iPad2 including a pinch to zoom capability which enables a better user experience when sharing content on a small screen or even enlarging a given participant. VidyoMobile allows Vidyo’s enterprise customers to offer mobile workers the ability to participate seamlessly in company video conferences from their iPhone 4S, expanding access to conferences that already connect laptops, desktops, telepresence and HD room systems. VidyoMobile on iOS 5 for the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 is available now on the Apple App Store.

“VidyoMobile delivers an unmatched multipoint experience on the iPhone 4S and enables mobile workers to hold a true enterprise video conference system in the palms of their hands,” said Ofer Shapiro, CEO and co-founder of Vidyo. “VidyoMobile on the iPhone 4S demonstrates the power of Vidyo’s software-based approach to videoconferencing and our ability to leverage the advancement of mobile processing power and accommodate an increasingly mobile and global workforce. Today, only VidyoMobile enables a multiparty video conference with telepresence quality on the iPhone 4S.”

Like all Vidyo endpoints, VidyoMobile can participate in conferences with more than 100 participants- displaying up to 4 participants at a time on the iPhone 4S and  iPad2 and provides the user the ability to customize the view and select presentation materials to improve collaboration.  Participants are displayed using the active speaker feature, which automatically displays the current and last few speakers.
