Questek Advanced Technologies recently announced its appointment as a service provider for Vidyo, a leading provider of personal telepresence for the enterprise that enables HD multipoint video conferencing and video collaboration.

The company officially launched Vidyo at an event held at their Johannesburg offices in May. UK-based Fraser Dean of Vidyo attended the launch and helped Questek introduce their clients to Vidyo’s communication and collaboration software based platform.

The Vidyo communication and collaboration platform is software-based, highly flexible and can be easily customised for individual enterprise and vertical market video conferencing needs. The patented VidyoRouter™ architecture introduces Adaptive Video Layering™, which dynamically optimises the video for each endpoint leveraging H.264 Scalable Video Coding (SVC)-based compression technology and Vidyo’s IP.

Adaptive Video Layering eliminates the MCU and offers unprecedented error resiliency, low latency rate matching thus enabling natural, affordable, high-quality video to work over the Internet, LTE and 4G networks. The platform allows users to quickly leverage the latest hardware innovations and new consumer devices, making it uniquely attractive to partners.

Vidyo has been active driving H.264 SVC and SIP videoconferencing interoperability in various standard bodies since 2005.
