At the ISTE 2012 conference in San Diego Convention Center, California June 24-27, Vidyo (News - Alert) stated it will be demonstrating how its video communications and collaboration platform has changed mediated classrooms into real-time, research and learning environments.

ISTE’s annual conference and exposition is an educational technology event, and every year nearly 20,000 enthusiastic ed-tech professionals and corporate representatives from around the world learn about how technology can help students broaden their horizons.

Vidyo’s platform delivers unprecedented quality, flexibility, ease of use and affordability to the classroom. The Vidyo for Education extends education beyond classroom walls to reach students, faculty, staff and alumni where they live and work, enabling campus-wide collaboration networks.

The firm’s video platform helps schools realize telepresence-quality multipoint video conferencing that runs on off-the-shelf hardware over everyday networks at an affordable price.

The School of Life Sciences at Arizona State University reportedly deployed the Vidyo video collaboration and conferencing platform, inexpensively helping the school link multiple video points into a conferencing classroom.

The school wanted the collaboration technology to be invisible and did not want the users to be constantly aware of the technology; Vidyo catered to these demands easily.

With Vidyo’s solution, learning establishments and school communities do not require specialized classrooms or cost prohibitive dedicated networks and equipment. The solution offers the highest quality transmission and reception of HD video over shared IP networks, including the internet.

At the summit, Vidyo presented easy whiteboard integration with Vidyo, Grants 101: Successful Strategies, tech talk: Vidyo and learning management systems, Vidyo Anywhere: mobile devices and Vidyo, and an exhibit by NASA via Vidyo.

Vidyo’s video conferencing solution is opening up opportunities for multitudes of people to whom education was previously ‘out-of-reach’ due to time, geography and other logistical challenges.
