Conferencing Zone Week in Review: Yamaha, Vidyo, BCU

July 08, 2017

Welcome back to the week in review, where we take a look at all the top stories making headlines in the Conferencing Zone this week.

The week started off with a look at video conferencing’s role in healthcare. It’s being used around the world to help students learn by watching actual surgeries in real time (after all, what better way to learn about a particular technique than by watching it occur in real life?). It can also be used so that surgeons can come together during particularly hard surgeries to provide advice. There’s a world of potential at conferencing’s feet. Find out more HERE.

Yamaha made headlines this week when it announced that it’s been awarded for its CS-700 video sound collaboration system. It was awarded AV’s Best in Show for 2017 at InfoComm. The system is easily integrated into any video conferencing service, including all of the popular offerings such as Skype for Business, Cisco Spark, Google Chromebox for Meetings, as well as a variety of other offerings. Everything you need to know is HERE.

Finally, we took a look at Vidyo a few different ways this week. First, I discussed how Baxter Credit Union (BCU) has teamed up with Vidyo to launch video-only branches. Then, Rich Tehrani expanded on the financial path Vidyo seems to be taking in his recent article, “Taking It to the Bank: Vidyo Expands Efforts in the Financial Vertical.” From the looks of it, Vidyo is gearing up to completely revamp the way we interact with our financial institutions.

That’s all for this week. Come back next week to read all the latest news in the Conferencing  space.
