For emerging businesses, this service enables enterprise-class HD video conferencing without any capital investment and empowers them with a powerful and affordable video collaboration tool.

Video Conferencing without a conference room:

  2. Not limited to a dedicated network
  3. Works on operating system (OS) - Windows/MAC/Linux/Apple IOS/Android
  4. Can connect multiple devices - Mobile phone (iPhone/Android), tablets (iPads/Android), laptops (Windows/Mac/Linux), desktops (Windows/Mac/Linux), dedicated room systems, real telepresence systems

  7. Zero capex: Video conferencing-as-a-service

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).

Sify’s technology partner, Vidyo, enables natural, affordable and universal video communications over the Internet, Long Term Evolution (LTE), and 4G networks at a fraction of the cost of alternatives. Vidyo’s solution is software-based and can be easily expanded, upgraded and customized for individual enterprise and vertical market video conferencing needs.
