Multipoint video conference connects Kindle to Nexus


Vidyo has demonstrated its award-winning multipoint video conferencing software on Amazon’s new Kindle Fire at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2012 in Amsterdam.

The company has also showcased the latest platform support for its VidyoMobile HD video conferencing software client: Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich running on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus smart phone. This new Android mobile platform will be part of a live, multi-point, global video conference connecting an extensive variety of endpoints on iOS and Android mobile devices including the Kindle Fire, laptops, and a six screen VidyoPanorama system.

It will feature the VidyoMobile client running on some of the most popular iOS and Android tablets and smart phones, including the Kindle Fire, iPad2, iPhone 4S, in addition to the Samsung Galaxy Nexus smart phone running Ice Cream Sandwich. All of these devices will be connected live with one another and a VidyoDesktop system located across the world, in a multipoint, HD video conference, over wireless and public Internet networks.

'Easy to use, universal business to business communication is the holy grail of enterprise video conferencing,' said Ofer Shapiro, CEO and cofounder of Vidyo. 'Traditionally, the challenge has been interoperability among companies who use different video conferencing vendors and endpoint devices. Vidyo’s software based approach offers a solution to this problem by providing high definition video conferencing over a multitude of off the shelf devices and interoperability with legacy systems.'

VidyoMobile supporting Android versions 2.2 through 4.0 is available for Vidyo users with accounts on either an enterprise VidyoConferencing system or through an authorized Vidyo service provider, in the Android Market Place as a free app.
