Vidyo Inc., the first company to deliver personal telepresence, was featured in Intel CEO Paul Otellini’s CES keynote today to showcase the performance and capability of Moorestown, Intel’s next generation platform for handhelds and smartphones. Mr. Otellini’s demonstration of a multipoint videoconference on a smartphone reference design (Click here to view a video of Intel’s CES keynote) highlighted the unique advantages of Vidyo’s patented VidyoRouter architecture. This architecture enables higher resolution endpoints to interact seamlessly with lower resolution endpoints such as a handheld device or smartphone over a wireless network.
“Vidyo is pleased to partner with Intel on the breakthrough demonstration in Intel’s CES keynote, (Click here for Intel’s keynote news release),” said Ofer Shapiro, CEO and founder of Vidyo. “Vidyo’s patented architecture was designed to offer superior video delivery on any network. We leveraged the full range of Intel’s processors to deliver great user experiences starting from Intel Core i7 powered telepresence rooms to the desktop. The Moorestown platform provides the final piece of the puzzle – extending our product line to handheld devices. Today’s demonstration of the Moorestown-based smartphone is a precursor to the future of video conferencing on smartphones and the obsolescence of MCU and gateway-based video conferencing architectures for mobile applications.”
“The Intel Atomprocessor roadmap brings tremendous performance at ultra-low power levels while maintaining full software compatibility,” said Pankaj Kedia, director of global ecosystem programs in Intel Corporation’s Ultra Mobility Group. “Intel’s next generation Moorestown platform, combined with Vidyo’s Personal Telepresence technologies, will make it possible for consumers to enjoy powerful applications such as TV-quality multipoint video conferencing in the palm of their hands.”
