NTT Communications Group Selects Vidyo and Arkadin for Breakthrough 'Infrastructure-less' Video Conferencing

PARIS & HACKENSACK, N.J. --(Business Wire)--

Arkadin, one of the world's largest collaboration service providers, and Vidyo, Inc., the first company to deliver personal telepresence, today announced that NTT Bizlink, Inc., a subsidiary of NTT Communications Corporation, has become one of the first carriers to provide video conferencing services through Vidyo's infrastructure-less Vidyo As A Service program. This unique economic model enabled by Vidyo's disruptive software-based hosted platform and delivered as a white label service by Arkadin, gives ICT service providers such as NTT (News - Alert) Communications Group a fast and efficient way to broaden their offerings in the video conferencing market without requiring expensive upfront infrastructure investments.

"NTT Communications (News - Alert) Group is a telecommunications visionary that recognizes the strategic importance of personal telepresence as an essential productivity tool for businesses of all sizes," says Olivier de Puymorin, Arkadin's (News - Alert) CEO and founder. "We're thrilled to partner with Vidyo to provide NTT Communications Group an affordable, high quality video conferencing solution for their customers. Together with Vidyo, this white label program will lead the market with the most innovative and economically feasible solution available for visual collaboration."

"NTT Communications Group decision to sign on to Vidyo's infrastructure-less Vidyo As A Service program, and the ease with which Arkadin is able to offer this next generation video conferencng service, are both testaments to our unique software architecture and a new affordable pricing paradigm for video conferencing," said Ofer Shapiro, Vidyo's co-founder and CEO. "Arkadin continues to be a valued partner, playing a key role in helping to expand Vidyo's international and service provider reach. Through Vidyo's white label program, Arkadin is enabling more and more enterprises to experience quicker time-to-market, and to offer exceptional telepresence-quality video conferencing that can be accessed on the widest variety of mobile devices, desktops and room systems."


NTT Bizlink, Inc. plans to combine this cloud-based video collaboration service with existing video conferencing service offerings through NTT Communications Group, by launching H.323 gateway service in December 2012. Its video conferencing service will be instantly available over any Internet or wireless connection through simple one-click access from desktops or mobile devices.

The Arkadin hosted Vidyo service is a highly strategic offering for telecommunications service providers to rapidly enter the high growth market for personal telepresence with significant profit potential. The infrastructure-less model offers fast, scalable deployments on mobile and room systems and interoperates seamlessly with existing H.323 infrastructure investments, without requiring enterprises to buy additional MCUs. These cost advantages can increase providers' offerings to users.

The infrastructure-less Vidyo As A Service program hosted by Arkadin will be available worldwide to Tier One Carriers and is immediately available in the US, EMEA and APAC. For more information please contact arkadin@vidyo.com. The Arkadin hosted Vidyo service is currently available in Japan through NTT Communications.
