ViVu Turns Microsoft Lync Into Multiparty Video Collaboration Platform for Enterprises

ViVu Seamlessly Integrates With Lync to Enable True HD Multiparty Videoconferencing and Richer Collaborative Features

CUPERTINO, CA--(Marketwire - November 24, 2010) - With the release of VuRoom Multiparty Videoconferencing for Microsoft Lync (previously Microsoft Office Communicator), ViVu leads the industry in delivering full-featured videoconferencing and business collaboration tools to users of Lync, the instant communicator platform of choice for tens of thousands of enterprises worldwide.

VuRoom for Lync provides enterprise-quality videoconferencing for up to eight attendees. Unlike Lync videoconferencing, where only the active speaker is visible on video, VuRoom displays the videos of all attendees simultaneously for a richer videoconference experience that conveys visual information from listeners and speakers alike. VuRoom also provides an option for adding videoconference attendees from outside the Lync network.

Users of VuRoom for Lync also benefit from best-of-breed collaboration tools that greatly enhance the Lync feature set, including low latency desktop sharing with HD resolution and color fidelity, and onscreen file sharing that displays PowerPoint animations quickly and accurately.

Initially released as a Skype plug-in and subsequently recognized as a "Skype Favorite," VuRoom quickly became the multiparty videoconferencing solution of choice for Skype users, delivering enterprise-quality collaboration features to the millions of individuals and small businesses that comprise the majority of the Skype user community. But for millions of enterprise users, a Skype-based solution could not satisfy their IT departments' stringent security requirements.

"We received countless requests to make VuRoom available to the very large segment of the enterprise user community that has standardized on Lync," said ViVu's CEO, Sudha Valluru. "Our new VuRoom plugin for Lync delivers the high-quality video collaboration features users have come to expect from VuRoom, with built-in enterprise-level security and without requiring the addition of hardware or software components to the enterprise IT infrastructure."

VuRoom supports a wide range of HD webcams and video cameras, and integrates easily with SIP-based enterprise Telepresence or video conferencing equipment from Polycom, Tandberg or LifeSize to leverage existing hardware investments.
