About Vidyo

We make natural video communication available to everyone—from the
office, home or while traveling—over general purpose IP networks,
including the Internet. Vidyo has made telepresence-quality video
conferences easy and affordable on PCs, Macs and HD room systems.

Good, bad, ugly? Happy, sad, disappointed?

We have used it in a testing capacity at Utah Law. I like the way it works for the end user, the quality of the video/audio signal over degraded links, and the ease of deployment.

We have not brought any of the equipment on site and plan to utilize in a hosted manner. Connects very well to our H.323 based video systems as well.

Best,

Mark

RE: Anyone looked at or using Vidyo (desktop videconf)

I have investigated it quite extensively on two occasions and both the
point-to-point and the H.323 (Polycom) video conferencing work very
reliably. I would say that it is the best of the web video conferencing
systems that I have tried so far, particularly if you want to integrate
existing Polycom systems. I wish that it was cheaper but this is a
professional product with a professional price.

Thanks for the feedback Laurence. Did you pull the trigger and actually buy it?

RE: Anyone looked at or using Vidyo (desktop videconf)

We have a funding request in for it currently and hope to purchase in July
2010.
