Hackensack, NJ (PressExposure) March 29, 2012 -- Vidyo, Inc., the first company to deliver personal telepresence, today announced a partnership with UST Global®, a leading provider of IT services and solutions for Fortune 500 and Global 1000 enterprises. UST Global plans to adopt Vidyo's personal telepresence platform as a company-wide vehicle for day-to-day internal business communications, and also use the Vidyo platform with its rich APIs to create customized retail, financial and healthcare solutions, in conjunction with its software development business. UST Global has over 8,000 employees located in the US, India, UK, Malaysia, Philippines, and Singapore.
"We are pleased to welcome UST Global as an important new member of the Vidyo partner community and as a customer who will be using Vidyo's solution to meet their own global communications requirements to drive productivity across multiple continents," said Ashish Gupta, Vidyo's CMO and Senior VP of Corporate Development. "It is a testament to the strength of Vidyo's platform that UST Global, whose focus is on delivering innovative solutions to Global 1000 companies, has selected our platform to build Vidyo Enabled Business Processes (VEBP) for UST Global customers."
"We are excited to be the first global systems integrator to join the new Vidyo Developer Program and we believe that Vidyo's technology compliments our strategy to build collaboration directly into custom applications - especially mobile applications," said Tony Velleca CIO, UST Global. "Vidyo's APIs are ideal for systems integrators; no other video communications platform offers the kind of flexible architecture, level of interoperability, and technology that can affordably scale and grow with our business needs."
Vidyo's platform enables partners to expand their reach into new markets with applications that are made possible only by using Vidyo's rich APIs. Unlike video codec vendors, Vidyo provides the architecture needed to deliver high-quality video conferencing, not just an SVC codec. Building on this platform, Vidyo's System Integrator partners such as UST Global can deliver innovative applications that enhance their customer's business processes with HD quality video communications. Integration strategies can be customized to needs and budget with Vidyo API packages, engineering support services, and multiple levels of integration options.

The Vidyo Difference
The Vidyo communication and collaboration platform is software-based, highly flexible and can be easily customized for individual enterprise and vertical market video conferencing needs.

Adaptive Video Layering eliminates the MCU and offers unprecedented error resiliency, low latency rate matching thus enabling natural, affordable, high-quality video to work over the Internet, LTE and 4G networks.
