By: iMedia News Bureau

Sify Technologies along with US-based Vidyo has launched Sify Videomeet which will enable easier video conferencing. The new generation service especially for enterprises and emerging businesses was simultaneously launched in Chennai, Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore via video conference.

The service is powered by Vidyo and will allow users to initiate and experience high-definition (HD), multi-point video collaborations beyond conference rooms and without dedicated networks. It can work across multiple devices like mobile phones, tablets, desktops, laptops, dedicated room systems and real telepresence systems. Therefore, it will work on various operating systems like Windows, MAC, Linux, Apple, iOS and Android. The adoption of this service does not entail any capital expenditure for the customers.

Speaking at the launch, Mr. Daniel Alex senior VP network services, Sify Technologies said, “Sify Videomeet, the Video Conferencing-as-a-service is a rich addition to our converged ICT services portfolio bringing competitive advantage to our customer’s business. Built on the strength of our industry-leading Network Services, with Vidyo’s innovative technology, this new-generation service will empower enterprises of all sizes to collaborate cost-effectively and in a secure manner. Our strategic partnership with Vidyo will help us innovate for our customers to keep them ahead in their businesses.”

Sify Videomeet will enable emerging businesses & enterprises to have video conferencing at less than Rs. 3 per minute. Customers could pay a fixed rental for getting unlimited video conferencing access or avail the ‘pay-per-use’ option. This service also eliminates the need for a Multipoint Control Unit (MCU) or any other video conferencing device at the premises of the customer, thereby reducing the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).

New Jersey based Vidyo Inc enables video conferencing over the Internet, LTE, 3G and 4G networks.

Ashish Gupta, CMO and SVP (Corporate Development) of Vidyo Inc, said, “Vidyo’s adaptive video layering collaboration platform is perfectly suited for emerging markets like India. We look forward to empowering Sify with the technology backbone required to extend this service to other customer segments.”

A couple of months ago, Sify unveiled a newly designed Sify.com and also introduced a new feature called Web Radio on its home page where visitors play or off the online radio while browsing the home page.
