VidyoWorks Platform Bolsters GENBAND’s Visual Communications Offering for Service Providers and Enterprise Customers
FRISCO, TX and HACKENSACK, N.J. – June 4, 2015 – Vidyo Inc., a leader in visual communications and collaboration and GENBAND, a leading developer of real time communications software solutions, announced today the integration of the VidyoWorksTM platform into GENBAND’s Smart Office Unified Communications (UC) solution. This integration enhances the collaboration experience for Smart Office users – making it even easier to seamlessly escalate phone calls to high quality multi-point video calls with screen sharing. The integrated solution reduces the barriers to collaboration across multiple locations and remote users while eliminating the need to buy expensive, disparate collaboration tools that require separate training, administration and support.
The VidyoWorks software-based architecture runs on commodity hardware and in virtual computing environments, lowering both the initial and ongoing cost and complexity of the solution when deployed in a service provider or enterprise’s network. The scalability of the VidyoWorks platform in conjunction with the suite of GENBAND UC solutions provide the capacity and sophistication required to address the needs of business, government, education and healthcare customers.
“Vidyo’s advanced SVC-based video conferencing technology gives our Smart Office UC solution a competitive advantage over other unified communications offerings in the market,” said Carl Baptiste, Senior Vice President of Unified Communications and Enterprise Product Line Management at GENBAND. “Our service provider and enterprise customers get a more efficient deployment architecture and their users get a better experience, even on 3G/4G connected mobile clients or constrained networks.”
Baptiste added, “Enhancing our Smart Office solution with Vidyo’s multi-point video conferencing and screen sharing tools enables users to be more productive, whether using desktop or mobile devices and on any network, regardless of where they may be.”
The VidyoWorks platform and APIs allow developers and solutions providers across a wide variety of markets and applications to address an increasing demand to integrate visual communication into productivity solutions enhancing the capacity for continuous workflow and business processes. New devices and form factors can uniquely leverage the VidyoWorks platform allowing for the highest quality, most scalable and affordable video deployment available in the market.
“Vidyo’s integration with GENBAND’s Smart Office will provide a powerful offering that combines best-in-class real time communications solutions with the highest-quality video technology people have come to know and rely upon through Vidyo,” said Eran Westman, CEO, Vidyo. “GENBAND is a global leader in software-based real time communications solutions for service providers, enterprises, system integrators and developers and this integration with the VidyoWorks platform is another example of how Vidyo is driving change to enrich the communications experience with face-to-face interaction.”
