By Telecom Lead Team: Vidyo announced its association
with REACH Health, a provider of interactive physician-to-patient access to
integrate Vidyo technology into its software platform.
REACH Health’s software platform offers multidiscipline
acute care telemedicine capabilities such as workflow, enhanced diagnostic
assistance and automated documentation capabilities, in addition to video.
Vidyo video collaboration platform with APIs allows
companies such as REACH to provide video communications to medical
“We needed to enable multi-party synchronized
audio/video within our platform and Vidyo was able to meet critical
requirements — exceptional quality of video, reliability of connection, cost
and ability to integrate via APIs with the other applications in our
platform,” said Cory Hall, executive VP of Medical Informatics at REACH
“Since REACH Health services many environments that
have limited network bandwidth and communications capabilities, they needed to
integrate a video communication solution that would connect with smaller, rural
facilities with limited connection capabilities. Only Vidyo was able to meet
this requirement,” said Amnon Gavish, Vidyo’s Senior VP, Vertical Solutions.
The Vidyo communication and collaboration platform is
software-based, flexible and can be customized for individual enterprise and
vertical market video conferencing needs. The VidyoRouter architecture
introduces Adaptive Video Layering, which optimizes the video for each endpoint
leveraging H.264 Scalable Video Coding (SVC)-based compression technology and
Adaptive Video Layering eliminates the MCU and offers
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
standards bodies since 2005.
