Video Conferencing...



Vidyo from Questek Advanced Technologies has a complete telepresence solution portfolio for universal video conferencing from any end point over any network without requiring expensive network upgrades. Go with Vidyo for room system, desktop, and mobile video conferencing solutions. Regardless of the business or application, Vidyo’s VidyoRouter architecture delivers low latency HD-quality multipoint video conferencing over ordinary data networks to any end-point. Vidyo offers solutions engineered for enterprise and service provider deployments, incorporating multiple types of endpoints to meet business and technical needs, as well as solutions specific to industries. Each Vidyo™ solution is built on our award-winning software-based platform, so it is fully customizable and easy to integrate, with support for an impressive array of application programming interfaces, and affordably priced at a fraction of the cost of competitive solutions

VidyoPanorama is the industry’s first affordable telepresence solution that delivers truly immersive interactions on up to 20 screens of 1080p at 60fps resolution at 10% the cost of current telepresence solutions. It redefines the traditional telepresence paradigm and price points to usher in a new era of universal video communications that is also affordable. Companies can now empower their employees to work from anywhere there is an Internet connection and promote a higher level of collaboration with high quality video conferencing using mobile devices (iPad, iPhone, Android), PCs (Win, Mac, Linux), room systems, and immersive telepresence rooms.
For too long, customers have been constrained by excessively expensive, inflexible immersive telepresence solutions which provide experiences that are far from immersive. A typical deployment costs $1 million when factoring in the network and ongoing maintenance costs. Even after that expense, the experience is not truly immersive and often imperfect due to limited screen space, and high video latency and poor video quality when incorporating mobile and PC endpoints.
VidyoPanorama overcomes these limitations by leveraging Vidyo’s patented Adaptive Video Layering, which dynamically optimizes the video for each endpoint. VidyoPanorama is available for beta evaluation in Aug and will be generally available in Q4 2011.

Key features include:

  • Up to 1080p 60 fps on up to 201 displays costing as little as $4,500 per screen.
  • Intuitive easy to use interface with single click to join conferences.
  • HD video conferencing over the Internet or general data networks.
  • Bandwidth efficiency delivering HD video conferencing starting at 500 kbps per screen.
  • HD multipoint video conferencing  with mobile devices (iPhone, iPad, Android) and PCs (Win, Mac, Linux) without an MCU.

With unprecedented flexibility, VidyoPanorama supports a wide range of use cases that traditional telepresence solutions cannot address.  The flexibility supports unique configurations  that can be customized to fit any size room, layout or video enabled business processes.  VidyoPanorama is the ideal solution to address new markets and applications such as:

  • Operations management center for manufacturing or supply chain management.
  • Command center for disaster recovery efforts or military applications.
  • Patient monitoring in a doctor’s or nurse’s station at a hospital.
  • Distance learning with multiple experts or lecturers for remote or rural communities.
  • Virtual trading rooms for financial services to coordinate strategies across geographies in real time.

At Vidyo™, HD-quality video conferencing is viewed as a natural extension of the way people work, and the products range show sit. VidyoRoom systems leverage Vidyo's patented Adaptive Video Layering Architecture to deliver telepresence-quality video experiences over general data networks and the Internet - no dedicated QoS networks are required.
Vidyo is the performance and value leader, delivering up to 1080p/30fps or 720P/60fps with the highest error resiliency and imperceptible latency across the range of VidyoRoom systems, at a fraction of the cost of video solutions based on transcoding MCU architectures. VidyRoom interoperates seamlessly with VidyoDesktop and traditional H.323 and SIP-based endpoints via VidyoGateway, to connect with anyone, anywhere using equipment they already have. By eliminating the need for expensive network upgrades and dedicated proprietary endpoints, VidyoRooms make telepresence multipoint connectivity more affordable than ever.
The VidyoRoom system is easy to configure and use, with multiple layouts for video display including: active speaker, continuous presence, data sharing, or any combination thereof. Each participant can dynamically change his or her preferred layout at any time during a meeting, independent of other participants. Flexible conference control options are a snap using either VidyoRemote software (via Flash-compatible browsers on any Macintosh or Windows laptop, tablet or touch screen) or a standard infrared remote control device. Support for far-end camera control from other VidyoRooms and VidyoDesktops enables remote participants to control what they see as if they were in the room with other meeting participants VIDYO DESKTOP

VidyoDesktop brings unprecedented telepresence-quality video conferencing to a company's most commonly used business tool - personal computers. The VidyoDesktop software client delivers low latency HD-quality video for natural communications, and single-click simplicity with an intuitive graphical user interface or mouse control. Vidyo puts the productivity power of video conferencing into the hands of users.
VidyoDesktop Benefits:

  • Super-quick installation
  • Windows, Macintosh and Linux* computers – *(certain versions only)
  • Real-time monitoring of participant video quality and network performance
  • Customizable personal screen layouts, including preferred speaker and continuous presence formats
  • Highly flexible application and data sharing options
  • Integration with Microsoft Lync, IBM Lotus Sametime, and Adobe Connect

Vidyo's Adaptive Video Layering Architecture delivers industry-leading error resiliency and low latency for personal telepresence on everyday desktop devices. This architecture enables the VidyRouter and VidyoDesktop to work together, dynamically adjusting video communications to network conditions and CPU utilization throughout a conference session based on the capabilities of each endpoint device, so all participants benefit from the full potential of their devices to deliver natural, face-to-face communication without broken images or delay.
VidyoDesktop integrates seamlessly with VidyoRoom systems, traditional H.323 and SIP endpoints using the VidyoGateway. For integration with unified communication platforms, Vidyo provides plug-ins for IBM Lotus Sametime as well as Microsoft Outlook
