Vidyo strikes major HP deal

10 Jun 2010

HP and Vidyo have forged an alliance to expand the HP Halo portfolio to include conference room and desktop endpoints that run on enterprise networks.

Vidyo recently told IT Brief how its telepresence solution aims to compete with Cisco’s high quality telepresence for less cost without compromising in quality. 

According to HP, the new offerings will use Vidyo’s VidyoConferencing line of software-based desktop and room system-based solutions running on HP servers to reduce a customer’s network and video infrastructure requirements while delivering high-quality, high-definition video.

“Companies need a complete portfolio of endpoint solutions, including video at the desktop, on mobile devices and in conference rooms, so they can collaborate more effectively,” said Rob Scott, VP and General Manager, Halo Telepresence Solutions, HP. “Together with Vidyo, we will provide customers with quality desktop and conference room video experiences that run over the internet or wireless networks, are highly reliable and can seamlessly connect to our existing high-end video collaboration offerings.”

Ofer Shapiro, Co-founder and CEO at Vidyo, explained, “Vidyo and HP will offer a set of solutions that bring together the best aspects in high-end videoconferencing whether at the desktop, in conference rooms or in Halo studios. Vidyo looks forward to partnering with HP to help enterprises achieve new efficiencies in global video collaboration from this software-based architecture.”

The solutions offered by HP will include an executive desktop solution running on an HP TouchSmart PC. HP and Vidyo will begin jointly marketing the solutions later this year.
