Vidyo Bets On The iPad And iPhone For The Future Of Video Conferencing

Vidyo, a company that specializes in high-quality video conferencing technology for the enterprise, is betting big on bringing video conferencing to mobile devices, including tablets and smartphones. Similar to Skype, Vidyo offers a technology that allows people to connect with each other over the web via video conferencing. However, the company says that Vidyo system is focused more on the enterprise, providing a reliable system, allowing conferencing for a large number of parties at once, and offering high quality video.

And Vidyo has built a big business licensing its technology to large electronics companies, such as HP, Intel and Hitachi. Vidyo’s technology is also used by Google to power video for Google Chat.

And as the enterprise is increasingly becoming reliant on mobile devices for connectivity, Vidyo is making a strong push for its mobile technologies. Here’s a video of Vidyo’s mobile technologies in action.

The idea is that you will be able to access and connect with Vidyo from any platform, whether it be an Android phone, iPad or computer. Shapiro says that increasingly clients are demanding cross-platform technologies for video conferencing; meaning that users on a variety of devices can all access the same video conference. And the company will be launching apps on other mobile platforms, including Android, soon.

Of course, it’s important to note that anyone using Vidyo’s iPad app will not be able to turn on video for themselves but the iPhone 4’s front-facing camera will be able to do this. However, Vidyo believes that next-generation versions of the iPad will have a front-facing camera included.

Of course, Vidyo isn’t the only player eying the potential for video conferencing to take off in the enterprise world. Cisco is rumored to be in talks with Skype; who just launched a nifty group video call feature for up to ten people. Skype, which filed for an IPO in early August, is looking for revenue channels and unsurprisingly sees potential in enterprise use of the service.

Another end game for Vidyo, who has raised a whopping $63 million in funding, could be an acquisition from one of the companies that licenses its video conferencing technology, such as Google, HP or others.
