Vidyo_BCS_logos.jpgHACKENSACK, NJ and TORONTO, ON--(Marketwire - March 30, 2011) - Vidyo, Inc., the first company to deliver personal telepresence, and BCS Global Networks Limited, a leading worldwide provider of managed video conferencing, telepresence and visual collaboration services, today announced that BCS Global is using Vidyo's next-generation video communication and collaboration platform to launch a new set of visual communication services that address mass deployments at the desktop. Vidyo's highly-scalable, multipoint, telepresence-quality solution enables service providers, unified communications vendors and carriers to offer an affordable Scalable Video Coding (SVC) - based video conferencing solution easily accessed over the Internet or general purpose IP networks.

"Our customers continue to value BCS Global as their trusted advisor in delivering leading edge services that accelerate the adoption of visual communication within their businesses," said Clive Sawkins, CEO of BCS Global. "Deploying Vidyo's revolutionary Vidyo platform allows us to offer our customers a robust desktop video solution with unmatched quality, flexibility and a range of end-to-end capabilities. The Vidyo platform is scalable and adaptive with very open APIs enabling us to enter markets with innovative applications faster than ever before. In addition to this, our customers and partners see tremendous value in certifying Vidyo on our global PSVN (Public Switched Video Network) architecture, putting us in a great position to deliver on two strategic growth areas -- mobility and business to business visual communications."

"BCS Global is one of the leading managed conferencing service providers in the world and it's extremely gratifying to see them embrace our differentiated solution," said Ofer Shapiro, co-founder and CEO of Vidyo. "Vidyo's platform is a perfect fit for service providers due to its unmatched scalability, new level of cost-effectiveness for delivering telepresence quality, and ability to use the service providers' existing infrastructure and business logic. We are excited to have our Vidyo platform certified on the BCS Global Public Switched Video Network, allowing customers to connect anywhere, anytime from any IP network."

VidyoTechnology offers unprecedented error resiliency, low latency and rate matching to enable natural, high quality video to work over the Internet, LTE, 3G and 4G networks. Because Vidyo's solution is software-based, it can easily be expanded, upgraded, and customized for customers' individual Enterprise and vertical market video conferencing needs. Vidyo's product line spans a full range of potential applications, from the VidyoDesktop with personal telepresence capabilities on a PC or a Mac to the VidyoRoom that encodes and decodes HD-quality video at up to 60 frames per second. Vidyo platform partners include HP, Ricoh, Google, Hitachi, and Teliris.

BCS Global's new Vidyo-powered services will be offered to customers as part of its Virtual Presence Desktop offering, and will be available to customers and partners globally in April 2011.
