Vidyo en Imago leveren cloudgebaseerde dienst voor videoconferenties

London en Hackensack, NJ, 7 november, 2012 - Vidyo, Inc., het eerste bedrijf dat persoonlijke telepresentie aanbiedt, en Imago Group plc, Europa's grootste onderneming op het gebied van video-oplossingen, maakten vandaag bekend dat Imago 's werelds eerste Europese "gehoste distributeur" wordt van Vidyo's prijswinnende oplossingen op het gebied van videoconferenties. Imago heeft een gehoste service opgebouwd, VaaS-t (Video as a Service-trade only), met gebruik van technologie van Vidyo, die door Imago's netwerk van tussenpersonen zal worden aangeboden aan eindgebruikers in een abonneemodel. Zo worden de complexiteit van verkoop en implementatie van infrastructuurontwikkeling uit de vergelijking gehaald. Doordat een raamwerk voor kapitaal niet nodig is worden gebruikers in staat gesteld om te genieten van een risicoloze en kosteneffectieve invoering van videoconferenties, terwijl tussenhandelaren de mogelijkheid krijgen om de huidige hoge vraag naar videovergaderingen veel sneller om te zetten in een inkomstenbron.

De gehoste service zal vanaf 1 november beschikbaar zijn in het Verenigd koninkrijk, Frankrijk, Nederland en België. Imago blijft het volledige bereik aan Vidyo-producten aanbieden zoals dat al sinds november 2010 wordt gedistribueerd. Om meer te weten te komen over VaaS-t, klik alstublieft hier.

"Met deze gehoste service op basis van Vidyo, VaaS-t, zijn we nu in staat om ons netwerk van distributeurs de mogelijkheid te bieden om eindgebruikers een betaalbare, kwalitatief goede visuele communicatiedienst te bieden voor telepresentie, die gemakkelijk toegankelijk is via internet of algemene IP-netwerken, " aldus Ian Vickerage, algemeen directeur van Imago Group PLC. "Deze dienst is met name geschikt voor bedrijven die geen interne IT-expertise hebben voor het implementeren en beheren van hard- en software. Toegang krijgen tot onze videoconferentiedienst zal net zo makkelijk worden als online een film huren."

Volgens een onderzoek dat deze zomer in opdracht van Vidyo werd uitgevoerd, hebben 75% van de bedrijven in het Verenigd koninkrijk die beschikken over een professionele oplossing voor videoconferentie, in de afgelopen drie jaar voorstellen gekregen voor het vernieuwen van hun infrastructuur - voorstellen die gepaard zouden gaan met het volledig of gedeeltelijk afschrijven of vervangen van hun bestaande hardware-investering voor videovergaderingen. De toekomstbestendige softwarearchitectuur van Vidyo reduceert de last van dergelijke afschrijvingen op hardware beduidend, door software-upgrades naadloos aan te laten sluiten op klanten met lokale oplossingen of oplossingen op gehoste platforms die worden verzorgd door externe dienstverleners.

"Imago biedt een geweldige nieuwe optie aan tussenpersonen en klanten, die de toegang tot kwalitatief goede, betaalbare videocommunicatie beschikbaar maakt voor zowel grote als kleine bedrijven," aldus Ashish Gupta, Vidyo's CMO en SVP voor Corporate Development. "Dit abonneemodel, gebouwd op het platform van Vidyo, vergroot de mogelijkheid van Imago om buitengewone oplossingen voor videoconferenties te leveren aan klanten die op zoek zijn naar een infrastructuurvrije oplossing, die direct over het internet kan worden gebruikt vanaf populaire zakelijke apparaten."

Het Vidyo-verschil
Het platform van Vidyo voor communicatie en samenwerking is op software gebaseerd, is zeer flexibel en kan gemakkelijk worden aangepast aan de behoeftes van een individueel bedrijf of aan de verticale markt op het gebied van videoconferenties. De gepatenteerde VidyoRouter™-architectuur introduceert Adaptive Video Layering, dat de video dynamisch optimaliseert voor ieder eindpunt door het toepassen van op H.264 Scalable Video Coding (SVC)-gebaseerde compressietechnologie en Vidyo's IP. Adaptive Video Layering elimineert de MCU en biedt een ongekende foutbestendigheid, lage latentieratio, met als gevolg een natuurgetrouwe, betaalbare en kwalitatief goede videoverbinding die werkt over het internet, LTE en 4G-netwerken. Het platform geeft gebruikers de kans om snel te kunnen beschikken over de laatste hardware-innovaties en nieuwe toestellen voor consumenten, waardoor het bij uitstek aantrekkelijk is voor partners. Vidyo is al sinds 2005 in verschillende organisaties voor standaardisering een drijvende kracht achter interoperabiliteit van H.264 SVC en SIP videoconferenties.
