As more companies discover the communication potential of videoconferencing and broadcasting, Vidyo is hoping they’ll step up to the features offered in the company’s VidyoReplay appliance. VidyoReplay sells for an introductory price of $9,500, and lets Vidyo customers stream to many live viewers, provide video-on-demand, and broadcast and record from mobile devices, notebooks, or VidyoRoom systems.
The VidyoReplay appliance gives administrators the ability to set permissions for user groups, controlling exactly who can record video, create a webcast, or access stored videos. The appliance can support up to 300 viewers at a time, and can keep a library of over 2,000 hours of HD video. Clients can connect it to an external storage server for bigger libraries.
Vidyo’s conferencing tools let companies and organizations stream live video or create video for on-demand use. The controls are designed to be simple enough for non-technical people to operate. Videos are recorded in the FLV format.
“VidyoReplay extends Vidyo’s ability to connect disparate endpoints to deliver low-cost, HD multipoint video conferences and now allows users to capture this content for future off-line viewing, anytime and anyplace,” says Ofer Shapiro, Vidyo’s co-founder and CEO. “
Those attending the Enterprise Connect conference running through March 3 in Orlando, Florida, can get a first-hand look at the appliance.
