VidyoCast – IP based multi-source production system

VidyoCast. If you’ve heard of Vidyo then yes Vidyocast is indeed part of that group. Vidyo are best known for the innovative teleconferencing solutions. I recently saw a demo of their Vidyocast system for broadcast and I have to say I was impressed. They use a proprietary H264-SVC codec that is VERY impressive even over low-bandwith / internet connections. Ive been waiting for them to launch an iPhone App to allow remote (mobile based) contributions into their production suite, the VidyoRouter being the effective Brain of the system. Keep an eye on these guys- their like Skype on overdrive but with professional / broadcast / webtv in mind. A turnkey solution like this could close the gap on iPhone based two-way live reporting for web -oh and did I mention they include multi camera vision mixing, ifb, remote ip-based camera control, and custom graphics / key overlays as part of their product line!

Check out their H264-SVC demo from YouTube
