CUPERTINO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ViVu, a leader in desktop videoconferencing solutions, today announced that its videoconferencing solutions are now available for both the iPhone 4 and the iPad 2, making high definition (HD), multiparty video collaboration and two-way video from all endpoints available on these devices for the very first time. Using the iPhone 4 or the iPad 2, customers, business partners and colleagues can now easily attend multiparty videoconferencing sessions; upstream video from their own devices; and collaborate with session participants through slide and desktop sharing.
By bringing its patented MXTP™ technology to the iOS platform, ViVu now delivers an HD video conferencing experience to all endpoints, whether PCs, Macs, Android devices or iOS devices, without requiring any proprietary hardware. ViVu’s zero-proprietary-hardware requirement is a paradigm shift in the HD videoconferencing industry, with other solutions relying on hardware based MCUs or routers. Combined with its scalable cloud-based architecture and enterprise-class secure platforms, ViVu now allows organizations to affordably connect their employees with powerful video collaboration capabilities from whatever device they choose.
“ViVu is committed to delivering secure and scalable videoconferencing solutions – and ensuring that they address all of the requirements for today’s emerging people-centric computing model,” said Sudha Valluru, Founder and CEO at ViVu. “Our unique MXTP technology allows us to achieve both by bringing enterprise-level collaboration capabilities to any device that end users want – without compromising the video performance that is needed to fully leverage and benefit from these solutions.”
End users are demanding access to all of their high-performance applications and enterprise solutions from the device of their choice, and smartphones and tablets are high on their list. According to the International Data Corp. (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Media Tablet and eReader Tracker released in September 2011, worldwide media tablet shipments are expected to reach 62.5 million units this year, up from a previous forecast of 53.5 million units, with the iPad leading with a majority share of the worldwide market.
Reliable, User-Friendly Performance with Full-Featured Multiparty HD Video Collaboration
With seamless integration of ViVu’s two-way HD quality video capabilities and WebEx-like collaboration, iPhone 4 and iPad 2 users can immediately access and benefit from multiparty videoconferencing and collaboration at the touch of a fingertip from their touch screen controls.
ViVu’s videoconferencing solutions for iOS devices still include all of the following trademark features:
- shared desktop capabilities, including animated PowerPoint presentations, slides and documents;
- a user-friendly, intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) to make it as streamlined as possible for users to immediately benefit from visual collaboration;
- ‘Tivo-like’ instant playback and archive capabilities for additional review or knowledge sharing; and
- best-in-class audio for the clearest conversations possible.
The cornerstone for ViVu’s videoconferencing solutions remains its patented MXTP technology. ViVu’s MXTP technology gives unmatched performance by bringing video intelligence to desktops and mobile devices, letting each endpoint optimize video quality independently based on available bandwidth without affecting the video quality of other endpoints. The ViVu platform was architected from the ground up for enterprise scalability and extensibility.
