VidyoMobile Leverages 4G LTE Capabilities Expanding HD Video Conferencing To Mobile Market
HACKENSACK, NJ – March 21, 2012 — Vidyo, Inc., demonstrated today telepresence grade, low-latency, multipoint video conferencing with 3 mega pixel content sharing on Apple’s new iPad. The demonstration over a 4G LTE network connection expands access to high definition videoconferencing, showing participants joining a conference from a variety of endpoints. This is the latest in a succession of Vidyo industry firsts, which includes being the first company to demonstrate HD quality, low-latency video conferencing on the iPad 2 and on the iPhone 4S over every day mobile, work and home networks. VidyoMobile™ is further enhanced by the latest iPad’s new Retina™ display, delivering incomparable data sharing, enhancing the user experience on Apple’s newly unveiled tablet. VidyoMobile for the new iPad is available via the Apple App Store. Here is a video demo of VidyoMobile’s amazing quality on the new iPad:
With Vidyo’s award-winning VidyoMobile solution, enterprise customers are able to offer high-quality videoconferencing access to their growing mobile workforce. As 4G LTE networks and devices become more widely used, Vidyo’s technology allows users to seamlessly join HD Vidyo conferences with superior quality from the new iPad, and participate in conferences with a wide variety of endpoints including other smartphones and tablets, laptops, desktops, telepresence and HD room systems. Connecting over 4G LTE networks means no longer having to be tied to a room to experience telepresence quality conferencing. VidyoMobile gives you true flexibility to universally connect from anywhere. Vidyo will be demonstrating the app running on the new iPad at Enterprise Connect in Orlando, Booth #631, from March 26 to March 28.
“VidyoMobile on the new iPad provides a highly compelling user experience for the enterprise video conferencing customer,” said Ofer Shapiro, CEO and co-founder of Vidyo. “The 2047 x 1536 pixel display allows us to provide a level of HD videoconferencing resolution never before seen on a tablet device, including 3 mega pixel application sharing capability, allowing Vidyo to unlock and expand new applications and usage models. The next generation iPad has the potential to open new doors and ubiquitous video conferencing adoption among enterprise customers who will expect a level of reliability and quality which can only be delivered through Vidyo’s unique architecture. It becomes increasingly difficult to justify investment in expensive purpose built devices when you can get higher performance and better user experiences on devices that people already have and use in normal course of workflow.”
The new iPad’s 3MP Retina display leverages VidyoMobile’s data sharing feature, offering greater detail in content collaboration for vertical market applications like healthcare, government, education and manufacturing. Several Vidyo customers already use content sharing to enhance collaboration, for example, schools conduct virtual learning sessions using iPads, geographically dispersed manufacturing organizations enhance productivity by collaborating globally, and construction companies sharing blue prints to expedite decision making on remote projects without requiring expensive travel.
“VidyoMobile on the iPad provides physicians at Miami Children’s Hospital with a critical tool for treating patients as well as for clinical decision-making with other physicians,” said Ed Martinez, CIO at Miami Children’s Hospital. “The superb clarity of VidyoMobile on the iPad allows real-time collaboration. The new iPad’s increased screen resolution has the potential to enhance the ability of our physicians to diagnose and treat patients from wherever they are, not just in their offices or within the hospital boundaries.”
Like all Vidyo endpoints, VidyoMobile can join conferences with more than 100 other participants, with the unique ability to pinch to zoom and individually select the participants would like to view.
