“We announced VidyoH2O for Google+ Hangouts earlier this year and are now extending it to include Microsoft Lync support,” said Ofer Shapiro, Vidyo’s CEO and co-founder. “We have received global interest in VidyoH2O from enterprise customers, including some of the largest, most admired brands in the world and key vertical markets like financial services and education. Enterprises today have multi-vendor video communication solutions and investment protection is key. We are pleased to extend this support to both our on-prem and hosted offerings.”

VidyoH2O, generally available since April, has more than 40 authorized channels around the world. The subscription service is sold both on-prem and as a cloud-hosted product, and the flexibility of the dual deployment model is particularly important to customers addressing networking and security considerations.
