HACKENSACK, NJ – March 3, 2011 – Vidyo®, Inc., the first company to deliver personal telepresence, today announced support for Microsoft® Lync™, which will enable Lync users to quickly and easily initiate and participate in HD multiparty Vidyo conferences. Vidyo's market-changing video communications and collaboration platform features a unique architecture that enables natural multi-point video conferencing over the Internet at price points not available from legacy providers. With Vidyo’s support for Microsoft Lync, users will now be able to access Vidyo’s personal telepresence by simply selecting it from within their Lync desktop application. Vidyo’s Microsoft Lync Plug-In is also backward compatible with Microsoft OCS 2007.

"Vidyo´s Plug-In for Microsoft Lync provides users with an exceptional ‘personal telepresence’ experience, allowing them to have easy access to the same low latency and exceptional video fidelity on multiparty conferences that, until now, was confined to costly and location-limited telepresence rooms,” said Ofer Shapiro, Vidyo’s co-founder and CEO. “Vidyo’s platform enables personal telepresence, and an important part of our strategy is to integrate it with leading platforms such as Microsoft Lync for ad-hoc calls or Microsoft Outlook for planned meetings. Vidyo now delivers plug-ins for IBM Sametime, Adobe Connect and Microsoft Lync and Outlook.”
