VidyoDesktop transforms any all-in-one touch screen computer into HD videoconferencing executive desktop
Vidyo said that it is delivering telepresence to the executive desktop in an easy-to-use touch screen form factor that runs on Mac and Windows-based laptops and desktop endpoints.
With its customised VidyoDesktop configuration, the VidyoDesktop Executive leverages existing designs offered by a new breed of ‘all-in-one’ computers. It can be a dedicated VidyoConferencing device, or serve as a multi-purpose executive desktop conferencing endpoint that is also a productive personal computer.
According to Vidyo, the new user interface of the VidyoPortal 2.0 was designed with touch screens in mind and enables users to join a multi-party Vidyo conference by simply touching the screen. Using VidyoDesktop Executive’s built-in application-sharing feature, applications like MS Paint can be used to communicate graphical ideas with a finger, drawing directly on the screen.
Ofer Shapiro, CEO and co-founder of Vidyo, said: “Compared to traditional dedicated appliance-based offerings, Vidyo’s executive desktop solution delivers this long-awaited ease-of-use for one-tenth of the price of any comparable product.
“The simplicity and intuitive design of the VidyoPortal graphical user interface on a multi-purpose touch screen computer finally puts telepresence quality video communications at an executive’s finger tips.”
