Vidyo's Video Conferencing Featured in HD Demonstrations via LTE at Mobile World Congress
Software-based technology and product-based visual communication solutions company Vidyo announced it will be featured in three demonstrations of HD video conferencing over wireless networks at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, from Feb. 14 to 17.
Vidyo will be featured by:
- Alcatel-Lucent and Verizon Wireless in a live 4G multi-continent gaming and live video conferencing demonstration between Barcelona and a moving 4G LTE-enabled vehicle in the United States.
- Alcatel-Lucent in a demonstration of high-quality video conferencing via TD-LTE, between passengers driving in a brand new Audi A8 automobile wired for broadband with LTE, cruising the neighborhood around the Arts Hotel in Barcelona, and people at the LTE TDD/FDD International Summit inside the hotel.
- Intel in a demonstration featuring a multi-party HD Vidyo conference using WiMAX and LTE, connecting three Intel-based tablets running Windows 7 positioned at different booths located within the MWC Exhibit Hall, and a PC desktop participant at a remote location, connected via the Internet.
Discussing the company’s featured demonstrations, Ofer Shapiro, co-founder and CEO of Vidyo said, “These demonstrations illustrate the unique properties of Vidyo’s groundbreaking technology platform that delivers exceptional fidelity over general purpose networks, even over wireless networks where available bandwidth constantly changes.”
“Our software-based solution leverages off-the-shelf devices that users already own and use with their residential and wireless broadband connections. This amazing versatility allows people, who are becoming increasingly more mobile, to connect with colleagues and customers via high-quality, natural video communication, at price-points that were never before available. Vidyo enables people to be more productive and visually collaborate from wherever they are – be it their office, hotel room, airport or Internet café,” he added.
Vidyo also demonstrated its multipoint video communication and collaboration platform at the MWC ShowStoppers event, connecting mobile devices including an Apple iPad, Apple iPhone 4, Samsung Galaxy Tab and the new Google Nexus S with laptops, desktops, and enterprise room systems; which presented its support of LTE, 3G and 4G broadband networks and smartphones.
