According to a recent rankings of ten desktop videoconferencing technology vendors, Vidyo is a strong overall performer with "the best overall video quality and performance." Forrester Research, Inc., who provided the rankings, stated that Vidyo's video quality remained the best even with a large number of participants. Forrester also gave Vidyo the top spot for its technology partners.
Why Vidyo is better and where they'll be leading tomorrow
Ofer Shapiro, the CEO and co-founder of Vidyo, stated that the company was honored by the recognition and that the company strives to continue to develop the best video solutions for its customers and partners. Vidyo credits its top video quality to its scalable video coding (SVC) architecture. In addition to other projects with its technology partners, Vidyo continues to work with Google to enhance video in the WebRTC. The WebRTC is an open-source project that will allow the web to operate with real time communication.
Poor quality and performance will leave users skeptical about using the technology
One of the challenges with introducing desktop video conferencing to an organization is encouraging active use amongst your employees. The last thing you need to worry about is poor performance or quality during an online meeting. In most cases, one or two bad experiences will frustrate staff and lead them back to traditional communication over the phone. Unfortunately, they now miss out on the resounding impact that visual communication, such as, desktop video conferencing can have on your internal and external relationships.
One of the key components to the Vidyo technology that makes it so simple and effective is it's built-in SVC technology. The SVC technology has been standard with Vidyo since it's start and has been continually developed and refined. Many other traditional vendors in the telepresence market have made the switch to use SVC recently, however, still require extensive development to remotely match what Vidyo is doing today.
