REDMOND, Wash., May 17, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CoroWare Technologies, a subsidiary of CoroWare, Inc. (OTCBB:COWI) and a Vidyo authorized conferencing service provider (CSP), announced today it has upgraded its CoroCall HiDef videoconferencing service by adopting VidyoConferencing Version 2.0, Vidyo's award winning high-definition (HD) multi-point videoconferencing technology.

As a result of its service upgrade, CoroCall 2.0 offers its customers improved audio and video quality -- including improved echo cancellation and device integration and full 720p30 video encoding for capable desktop and laptop systems.

"VidyoConferencing enables CoroWare to offer affordable and scalable HiDef videoconferencing subscription plans to small and large organizations alike," said Marty Hollander, senior vice president of marketing at Vidyo. "Because CoroCall supports customers in remote locations who connect over the Internet, Vidyo's error resiliency and dynamic bandwidth allocation is the best solution for providing high quality videoconferences, whether those customers are using a desktop, a laptop or a room system."

CoroCall 2.0 also provides enhanced H.239 application sharing that is interoperable with traditional videoconferencing vendors such as Polycom, Inc., and Cisco Systems, Inc. (including the Tandberg product line), and is works optimally with Vidyo's VidyoConferencing™ product line.

"Vidyo's unique network architecture and groundbreaking implementation of the H.264 SVC (scalable video coding) standard enable CoroCall to deliver a full range of videoconferencing experiences, from stable video over a 3G connection to full 1080p HD quality videoconferencing over a normal high-speed internet connection," said Joshua Sherman, Business Unit Manager for Telepresence at Coroware. "Participants can attend from their computers, affordable VidyoRoom systems, and traditional videoconferencing room systems all at once without needing to purchase any expensive specialized equipment or dedicated internet bandwidth, and each participant receives the best experience their system can handle."
