Vidyo demos HD videoconferencing on Apple's new iPad


Think the videoconferencing industry was going to let an opportunity to take advantage of Apple's new iPad high-resolution screen slip past? Think again.

Startup Vidyo this week demoed what its service looks like on the latest tablet from Apple, highlighting low-latency, multipoint video conferencing with 3 mega pixel content sharing over a 4G LTE network connection.

Vidyo will be demonstrating the app running on the new iPad at Enterprise Connect in Orlando, Booth #631, from March 26 to March 28.

"VidyoMobile on the new iPad provides a highly compelling user experience for the enterprise video conferencing customer," said Ofer Shapiro, CEO and co-founder of Vidyo. "The 2047 x 1536 pixel display allows us to provide a level of HD videoconferencing resolution never before seen on a tablet device, including 3 mega pixel application sharing capability, allowing Vidyo to unlock and expand new applications and usage models."

The tablet, he said, could lead the way for even more widespread adoption of videoconferencing among enterprise customers, a segment that analysts say is likely to aggressively move into the technology over the next year.

The company, which is nipping at the heels of more established players in the space like Cisco (Nasdaq: CSCO) and Polycom (Nasdaq: PLCM) with its unique videoconferencing architecture, has pushed its mobile play hard over the past several months, and has some significant wins in the telemedicine segment as well as with enterprises and SMBs.
