Vidyo Unveils VidyoRouter Virtualized HD Video Conferencing
When VidyoRouter VE becomes available later this year, it will be available on VMware's virtualization platform.Virtual telepresence specialist Vidyo Inc. launched its VidyoRouter Virtual Edition high-definition video conferencing platform. VidyoRouter VE is designed to provide enterprises and service providers with deployment flexibility in their video conferencing infrastructure. When VidyoRouter VE is released later this year, it will be available on VMware's virtualization platform. Using Vidyo's Adaptive Video Layering technology to eliminate the latency and intensive processing requirements of transcoding required by traditional MCU-based solutions, VidyoRouter delivers low-latency video streams for any endpoint over any IP network. All VidyoRouter editions deliver video conferencing to mobile devices, PCs, room and telepresence systems over general-purpose IP networks. As a result, VidyoRouter VE is able to deliver high concurrent connection density per virtual machine processing resource and native firewall traversal. It is also designed to offer businesses flexibility by bringing new geographies online without the need to purchase and deploy redundant hardware appliances.
Cloud deployment enables businesses to distribute the video conferencing infrastructure so that traffic can be localized anywhere there is a pocket of users, keeping more traffic on the lower-cost LAN bandwidth and off the higher-cost WAN. For example, in the event that a company opens a new branch office, it has the flexibility to use virtual VidyoRouters to enable the new branch office to gain local access to VidyoConferencing. Additionally, the virtualized VidyoRouter leverages the existing capacity of a businesss private or public data centers, which means no additional or purpose-built hardware is required in locations to support the build-out of a distributed multipoint conferencing fabric.
