    LAS VEGAS, Nev., May 2  -- Vidyo(TM), Inc., the first company to deliver personal telepresence, today announced that it was the recipient of a "Best of Interop" award, winning "Best Startup " Interop 2008, a special award selected by a panel of InformationWeek expert judges. In late January, Vidyo launched the VidyoConferencing(TM) product family --
world's first scalable coding enabled video conferencing system. It includes the VidyoRouter(TM), VidyoRoom(TM), VidyoDesktop(TM), VidyoPortal(TM) and the VidyoGateway(TM); a complete solution spanning from the highest end room system available to HD-enabled desktop conferencing.

    "The Best of Interop Awards are always an indicator of the most innovative and exciting offerings in these categories, and this year's winners are no exception," said Art Wittman, Editor of InformationWeek. "Vidyo, winner of our special "Best Startup" award, has truly demonstrated superior technology and innovation, and deserves recognition for their contributions to the industry."

    "Vidyo provides the ideal solution for enterprises that want to make natural video communication universally available," said Ofer Shapiro, CEO of Vidyo. "Personal telepresence -- the ability for anyone, anywhere and at any time to communicate with HD video quality -- is now a reality with VidyoConferencing. Receiving the 'Best of Interop' Award is an exciting validation of our groundbreaking solution."

    VidyoConferencing is a breakthrough in quality and cost for video communication, and eliminates the requirement of a well engineered network. Vidyo introduces an entirely new architecture for video conferencing. The central component of legacy video conferencing -- the Multipoint Control Unit (MCU) -- is eliminated and replaced with a distributed architecture
using an application layer router. The company's products and technology enable the widespread use of HD video conferencing by everyone, whether from the office, home or while traveling.
