Solution providers need to jump into videoconferencing as the emerging Internet of Things (IoT) market takes shape. That’s where video is already playing a critical role in such markets as health care and government, says Eran Westman, CEO of software-based videoconferencing specialist Vidyo.
Westman says video communications is seeing widespread adoption in 2015 and his company is witnessing more wins in mid-market enterprises and in Fortune 500 companies, where channel partners can drive profitability.
Gartner describes Vidyo as a disruptive force in videoconferencing with its software-based approach that limits the need for transcoding and associated infrastructure. The privately held Hackensack, N.J.-based company was recently awarded its 100th patent.
