Company Vidyo®, Inc., announced that the Vatican City, the sovereign territory of the Holy See, has deployed VidyoConferencing™ to ensure telecommunications between the different locations of the organization. The Vidyo VoIP and IP telepresence platform will be implemented for communications between regular employees and clergy in central offices such as the Governatorate and the Roman Curia, and in other offices all around the World.
Previously, the Vatican City had been using classical telecommunications asset that no longer covered the requirements and needs of a expanding organization with offices located globally. The choice was made by the Telecommunication Department of the Vatican City, which is responsible for the adoption of technologies within the Holy See; they reviewed numerous VoIP and IP video solutions.

"We’re seeing an incrementally growing number of companies deploying Vidyo’s platform – either switching from their old legacy system or investing in a video conferencing and collaboration system for the first time because of our higher quality, lower costs and superior range of options that span HD room systems, desktops, laptops and mobile devices,” stated Eric Le Guiniec, Vidyo’s General Manager for Mediterranean Region. “We are extremely happy to be selected by the Vatican City and we look forward to continuing and strengthening our relationship in the future.”

The Vatican City’s Telecommunications Department’s aim was to select a high- quality, affordable video communications and VoIP technologies platform. Due to specific kind of consumers, which are not technically experienced, the system had to be of intuitive use and maintenance. Department found that Vidyo’s platform offers impeccable quality over any types of connectivity and enables users to take part in conferences from a different kinds of desktop and mobile endpoints. Vidyo’s resilience to latency and packet loss, making video communication realistic, was a core advantage; another advantage was the option to invite anyone to join a Vidyo conference - not just the users registered on the system. Vidyo’s solution will allow anyone in the Vatican City to use video communications easily, even those with less technical knowledge, resulting in a reduction of travel costs and a positive impact on the environment.
