announces that its Vidyo platform now supports Apple’s just released iPad 2, Motorola’s XOOM tablet and Atrix 4G smart phone utilizing the rich VidyoTechnology SDK that is available to partners to create innovative applications. Vidyo’s award-winning communication and collaboration platform provides a 720p HD multipoint video conferencing solution on the iPad 2 and runs on a variety of previously announced mobile devices.
Using Vidyo’s platform, customers can join video conferences from anywhere using the device of their choice: smart phones, tablets, desktops, room systems or telepresence endpoints – on client applications built by Vidyo or partners with the Vidyo SDK. This expanded set of end-point support, pristine quality at affordable price points, combined with the rich set of desktop and mobile Vidyo SDKs has attracted developers to build new video conferencing applications on a myriad of devices for the first time. Look for Vidyo’s rich multipoint video conferencing soon on your favorite tablets and smart phones.
Vidyo was demonstrated as the first TV quality multipoint conference on a smart phone during the keynote address at CES 2010. Since then, the Vidyo platform has expanded to support the iPad, iPhone 4, iPod, Samsung Galaxy Tab and Galaxy S smart phone, the Google Nexus S, multiple other Android phones and tablets, and now the iPad 2, XOOM and Atrix. Vidyo’s communication and collaboration platform was licensed last year for the first commercially available mobile multipoint video conferencing service available on any telecom carrier network.
Vidyo’s SDK and APIs are available today for devices running Android, Windows and iOS operating systems and are currently used by partners like Elisa of Finland, who released the first mobile multipoint video conference service on the Samsung Galaxy Tab and smart phone. Additional Vidyo- powered mobile offerings will be announced soon by partners.
