ViVu Brings Videoconferencing to iPad and iPhone
Apple iPhone and iPad owners no longer have to rely on FaceTime or Skype for face-to-face chats: desktop videoconferencing company ViVu announced today that it will offer high-definition multiparty video chatting on the iPad 2 and iPhone 4. The ViVu apps are currently under review by Apple. They will be available for free download, when approved.
The announcement includes everything a user would expect in a videoconference, including the ability to send video from the iOS device and collaborate through slide and desktop sharing.
ViVu's videoconferencing platform already supported Windows and Mac computers, as well as Android mobile devices. ViVu notes that its solution doesn't require proprietary hardware, and is cloud-based and scalable.
Other features available for iOS users include DVR-style controls that allow for instant playback and content archiving. The interface is simple, so that users can join meetings quickly. Touch controls let participants zoom in on something for a better look.
The ViVu platform is built on the company's MXTP technology. Each device in a videoconference has independent control over its video quality, based on available bandwidth.
"ViVu is committed to delivering secure and scalable videoconferencing solutions -- and ensuring that they address all of the requirements for today's emerging people-centric computing model," says Sudha Valluru, founder and CEO at ViVu.
