Palm, Desert, CA and Hackensack, NJ - January 28, 2008 - Vidyo, Inc., who today unveiled the first enterprise video conferencing products to feature HD quality video delivered to both conference rooms and desktops over the Internet, announced that it already has over ten resellers who have committed to distributing the company's new family of video conferencing solutions.

"It's a testament to the power of our solution that, in a relatively short period of time, we've been able to build a world-class channel to take our video conferencing solutions to market," said Rob Hughes, Senior VP of Worldwide Sales and Support at Vidyo. "The kind of momentum that we've experienced, even before our formal product launch, is unprecedented. We're extremely excited to have already received such a high level of industry validation for this groundbreaking product line."


"As a company that designs and deploys enterprise conferencing solutions, OmniPresence has evaluated and tested quite a number of viable options," said Tom Wing, President, OmniPresence. "However, the Vidyo solution's unique ability to deliver HD videoconferencing via the Internet, along with the ease of deployment of endpoints, differentiates Vidyo from the rest of the players in the industry. We've finally found a video solution that simply works for all applications... and works simply for end-users."

To complete its global sales operations, Vidyo recently added two key positions to its current sales infrastructure. Alfred Hui has joined the company as VP Sales, APAC, and will be working from Vidyo's office in Hong Kong; Yossi Massafi has joined the company as VP of Worldwide Sales Operations, and will work from Vidyo's headquarters in Hackensack, New Jersey. Both have strong backgrounds in enterprise technology sales.
