Vidyo (News - Alert), a provider of personal telepresence solutions, announced it has won the Best of Interop Award in the Collaboration category. The award recognizes the company’s ability to deliver video communications and collaboration on mobile devices via its recently announced VidyoMobile product.
VidyoMobile enables the only natural experience by utilizing Vidyo's Adaptive Video Layering (AVL) architecture which dynamically optimizes the video quality and resolution for each participant's environment, company officials said.
Eric Krapf, editor of No Jitter and Best of Interop (News - Alert) Judge, said, “VidyoMobile promises to extend high-quality video conferencing to mobile users who will increasingly demand it.”
According to Krapf, VidyoMobile addresses the present challenges associated with mobile video. Vidyo's Adaptive Video Layering architecture promises to deliver high-definition 720p video with resolution up to VGA on smartphones and tablets. This, according to Krapf is critical, especially in enterprise environments, where lower-quality video and audio act as a constraint upon widespread adoption.
“VidyoMobile will let enterprises quickly and efficiently deploy a high-quality, bandwidth-efficient video client to smartphones and tablets across the enterprise, helping to drive adoption of mobile video within the enterprise,” Krapf added. “As such, it is worthy of recognition as Best of Interop for the Collaboration category.”
Company officials claim that Vidyo was the first to recognize the importance of mobile video communications and collaboration and the first to deliver HD video conferencing on mobile devices.
“As mobile devices become more powerful and business-critical to the Enterprise eco system, our video communications and collaboration platform will enable partners to build and deliver applications that were not available before,” said Ashish Gupta (News - Alert), Vidyo CMO and SVP of Corporate Development, in a statement.
Earlier this year, Vidyo announced it has raised $11.5 million in funding. Less than a year ago, the company raised $25 million from several VC firms, TechCrunch reported.
