Embedded video technology leader and video conferencing pioneer Vidyo today announced that its recently-launched Vidyo.io developer platform has been included in Gartner’s 2017 Market Guide for CPaaS (Communications Platform-as-a-Service). The self-service Vidyo.io API platform lets software developers quickly and easily video-enable any application, on virtually any device, with cloud-hosted, high-quality, dependable, enterprise-grade multiparty video collaboration technology.
Vidyo.io offers the same high-quality video used in the enterprise to any organization. “CPaaS represents a new technology and business model for communicating person to person and device to device (Internet of Things [IoT]). It can enable innovative business solutions for communicating with customers and employees, and connecting operational systems and devices. CPaaS can significantly reduce costs for many enterprises,” says Gartner.
The key value proposition of CPaaS is its unique ability to marry business processes and communication technologies, by letting devops teams focus on software development, while avoiding substantial upfront costs. Video-enabled CPaaS that are designed for consistent high performance over mobile devices and the public Internet, like Vidyo.io, help organizations of all kinds to better connect face-to-face, from wherever they are, using virtually any device.
A challenge that the CPaaS market continues to face is that video which “just works” over mobile devices and the public Internet is hard to find, with organizations and their on-the-go stakeholders often being served low video quality with symptoms such as lag, dropped calls, poor visual fidelity and generally an unsatisfying user experience. Vidyo’s patented routing and layering technologies address this challenge by creating streams that run smoothly and clearly, even when users are connecting over low bandwidth and variable wifi connections.
“Across industries, cost-effective, scalable, high-quality mobile video collaboration is helping everyone to simply do more with less. This is the year when real-time video, as the richest communication medium there is, really begins to shine on the CPaaS stage,” said Vidyo CEO Eran Westman. “Organizations turn to Vidyo when quality matters, and today that increasingly includes reliability and dependability over mobile. We are proud to be included in Gartner’s market guide for CPaaS as we take the next step on our mission to video-enable the world.”
By launching the Vidyo.io CPaaS, Vidyo has opened up its DNA to all developers who want to take advantage of Vidyo’s unmatched error resilience and patented video routing and layering technologies, which ensure a quality, scalable user experience from anywhere. Last July, Gartner named Vidyo a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for group video systems for the second year in a row.
