Mitel And Vidyo Bring Personal Telepresence To The Cloud

OTTAWA and HACKENSACK, N.J., June 25, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mitel® (Nasdaq:MITL) (TSX:MNW) and Vidyo, Inc., have partnered to deliver a single, comprehensive offering that will integrate Vidyo's HD video and telepresence solutions across Mitel's entire line of unified communications and collaborations (UCC) products, and as part of MiCloud as a Service in the U.S. Through this reseller and distribution agreement, Mitel's global channel partners will be able to offer the UCC end-to-end video conferencing solution, also available as a cloud offering. Early customers are already seeing significant cost savings, while boosting productivity.

"We explored options and with Mitel and Vidyo we can achieve the same result for a fraction of the cost. We're pushing the boundaries of how we can collaborate with a solution that is secure, self-contained and simple to use. The power of that is we can now have staff and clinicians working properly and effectively at home with high resolution, high-quality images," said Mike Press, Assistant Director of NHIS at Nottinghamshire Health Informatics Service, a shared information and communications technology service provider in the U.K. supporting the technology needs of a range of customers within the National Health Service (NHS).

With a focus on ease-of-use, the joint solution tightly integrates video as an integral part of Mitel's voice and collaboration platform. Because both the Vidyo technology and Mitel's UCC are software-based, the video-enabled solution is highly flexible and ideal for public, private and hybrid cloud deployments.

"After shipping two generations of scalable and cost effective systems that can scale personal telepresence from legacy room system to mobile and desktop, we are focused on making our best-in-class conferencing infrastructure even more accessible to end users," said Ofer Shapiro, co-founder and CEO of Vidyo. "We are excited by the collaboration with Mitel that will put our immersive conferencing infrastructure a click away from any Mitel UC users. The partnership is a perfect example of how the VidyoWorks platform can be used to enhance business workflow."

One of today's business needs is the ability to empower collaboration, both internally among employees and externally with partners, suppliers and customers. The Mitel/Vidyo integrated solution will enable video conferencing across an organization and beyond. It brings UC driven business-class video conferencing to major mobile devices, including smartphones, tablets and laptops, as well as desktop and in-room systems and across all networks to fully support BYOD initiatives.
