HACKENSACK, NJ , Jul 20, 2015 - Vidyo, Inc. today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the “Leaders” quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Group Video Systems.* We believe that this acknowledgement by Gartner recognizes that Vidyo has been a disruptive force in enterprise video conferencing with its software-based approach that limits the need for transcoding and associated infrastructure and has transformed how, where and when users consume video conferencing in groups.
According to Gartner, “The introduction of innovative new form factors, software infrastructure and cloud services is reshaping enterprise video collaboration. The following vendors offer potential for greater reach, scale and interoperability while addressing the most critical video user cases.”
Gartner goes on to say, “Group video systems primarily serve the need for high-quality video interaction across a range of meeting room sizes. In addition to one or more screens of video, these systems allow for content sharing, as well as integration with unified communications (UC) platforms. As participants join meetings from outside the conference room, these systems also accommodate desktop and mobile endpoint add-on while providing continuity of experience.”
Enterprises that have deployed Vidyo’s solution report significantly higher utilizations (20 percent) as compared with utilization of legacy environments (5-10 percent).
“We believe that being placed as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Group Video Systems is confirmation of Vidyo’s market momentum. The VidyoWorks™ platform is being selected by enterprise companies, financial services, telemedicine providers and government agencies and offers an innovative alternative to incumbent providers,” said Eran Westman, CEO, Vidyo. “Vidyo offers enterprise companies the best and most affordable way to connect and collaborate and as our customers tell us, ‘it just works.’ ”
Vidyo’s software-based room systems run on commodity hardware and in virtual computing environments, lowering cost constraints for scaling enterprise video and allows upgrades without shipping new hardware. Customers of all sizes including those requiring extreme security are leveraging Vidyo to visually connect their global teams, and customers, providing the highest level of collaboration tailored to the specific needs of each company.
