Vidyo has best overall quality, research group says

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. 


 

Google Enlists the Help of Vidyo for Improving Video Quality

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.
