Vidyo's Mobile video conferencing coming soon

Vidyo just announced their mobile video conferencing option to be released soon. Vidyo reports this option is ready for release and has been in use by a telecom network (Elisa Corporation) in Finland throughout 2010.

It looks like support will be available for iphone, android devices, along with tablets like the iPad & Samsung Galaxy devices.

Vidyo has been developing award winning, video conference products based on the SVC (Scalable Video Conferencing) concept. Essentially, the technology will adjust the video conference experience for each participant. This process has proved to be successful, when considering participants joining via the desktop, from various locations & networks. With Vidyo's technology it will auto-adjust how much data a user can accept at any given moment, and scale the experience accordingly, however, always delivering the most important parts, such as, the active speakers. Its very impressive, and is different from traditional products that would scale the whole experience down to the lowest common denominator (eg. the participant with lowest capacity/connection).

With their upcoming release for mobile video conferencing, it will be interesting to see if Vidyo's SVC based technology, provides a similar experience from the mobile device, and maintain a high level of quality.  From the demonstrations of VidyoMobile, the concept looks great, and recently they we're also awarded a finalist at the Best of Interop, Collaboration category.  VidyoMobile also won the 2011 mobile video conferencing award at CTIA.
