"Vidyo has once again shaken up the status quo in the videoconferencing world," said Ofer Shapiro, Vidyo CEO. "Up until now a videoconferencing endpoint capable of encoding HD video for under $2,000 was unheard of. In addition, it can be deployed on a DSL or cable modem Internet connection, making it Opex as well as Capex-friendly."
In addition to this announcement, the company also introduced a new pricing structure for its HD videoconferencing ports today. As per this announcement, the company is changing the way it delivers its video conferencing systems to end-users by offering their HD videoconferencing ports for only $1000 a year.
"We strongly believe that after experiencing HD videoconferencing for a year, customers will be convinced that using anything less is unsatisfying," said Ofer Shapiro, CEO of Vidyo. "Most people have experienced SD quality only and are hesitant to buy expensive HD MCU ports for all desktop users. Many traditional conferencing purchases are SD. These purchases will become 'boat anchor' hardware when the customer chooses to move up to HD. Leveraging our technology advantage, we are allowing everyone to experience the HD benefit, risk free."
