Vidyo, batipi's powerful telepresence technology, has gotten another vote of confidence from the world of technology. Google has recently enlisted the help of Vidyo to improve the video quality of web-native applications that do not require plugins or special software. It's not a new partnership, necessarily. Google previously called on Vidyo to power Google+ Hangouts. Seeing the effectiveness of Vidyo's scaleable video coding (SVC), they expect the technology to aid WebRTC improvements.
The magic of Vidyo is in its responsive design. With SVC extensions, video and audio automatically adjust quality and bandwidth depending on the characteristics of the device accessing the content.
The partnership will serve as a great boost to WebRTC, Google's current protocol for responsive real time communication (RTC). Expectations are that the power of WebRTC and the expertise of Vidyo will create a sort of RTC dream team. Web-native content will be more responsive and app-like, giving the user a better real-time experience.
Those signed onto a telepresence service powered by Vidyo already understand the importance of the technology in video conferencing. Responsive design allows browser-to-browser and browser-to-server communications to give every participant in the video conference a quality experience, no matter where they are or what device they're using. Mobile and field players are better brought into the fold.
Organizations looking for a cost-effective and eco-friendly way to link team members and partners separated by satellite and field offices, can trust in clear communications with minimum technical glitches. Vidyo's responsive design minimizes clumsy load times and sporadic disconnections that interrupt important discussions and hinder productivity. They can do so without the cost and carbon footprint of extensive travel.
Google understands the power of Vidyo's technology, and we do, too. For more information about how Vidyo's telepresence technology can improve your video conferencing, contact us.
