Vidyo extends mobile platform support

AUTHOR: Inavate

Video conferencing technology company Vidyo is enhancing its platform with support for Apple’s just released iPad 2, Motorola’s XOOM tablet and Atrix smartphone.

The platform utilises the company’s VidyoTechnology SDK, which is available to third parties, and enables 720p HD multipoint video conferencing that works on a range of mobile devices.

Vidyo CEO Ofer Shapiro says the faster CPU of the iPad 2 and its two cameras make it a platform that “begs for HD multipoint video communication and collaboration”.

The company claims it was able to use its own SDK to enable the iPad 2 to participate in 720p multipoint video conferences within hours of general availability of the high-end tablet computer.
