VidyoConferencing 3.0 lacks significant innovation?

VidyoConferencing 3.0 lacks significant innovative features to enterprise CIOs.

First, enhanced usability for enterprises is said to be the backbone of the new version of Vidyo’s software-based video communications. But Vidyo could not quantify the enhanced usability.

Announced officially today, VidyoConferencing 3.0 offers two new room system form factors at market-disrupting price/performance levels with enhanced interactive content collaboration and integration with a variety of unified communications solutions.

The main features include: VidyoDesktop 3.0, VidyoWeb, Vidyo’s in-browser experience, VidyoRemote, a new remote control application for iOS and Android devices, a new Vidyo app for sharing and collaboration, plus Vidyo API integration with both AMX and Crestron room control solutions.

Ofer Shapiro, co-founder and CEO of Vidyo, said: “We have seen customer growth explode to an unprecedented level; one customer’s usage has peaked at 750 concurrent calls, another purchased a 1,000 rooms systems in a single deployment, and a third purchased capacity that will support 500 million minutes a year.”

Roopam Jain, principal analyst, Frost & Sullivan North America, said: “Its new form factor – a small room system, based on the Intel NUC solution –breaks down the barriers to adoption by offering a cost effective solution for small meeting rooms and their approach to a multi-screen telepresence room solution.”
