Vidyo releases implementation of VP9 optimized for real-time video

Vidyo, the provider of integrated video collaboration technology, has announced its own implementation of the VP9 coding format optimized for real-time video, the company said.

Leveraging over a decade of experience building real-time video encoders, Vidyo´s tests of its implementation of VP9 yield up to double the battery life for mobile devices.

Compared to the open source VP9 codec, Vidyo´s implementation delivers a more efficient experience for users across a variety of industries who rely on real-time collaboration over video.

Vidyo´s latest breakthrough extends the company´s leadership position in video compression and communications. The Vidyo VP9 codec has enterprise-grade error resilience for high-quality multi-party video communications and it is fully compatible with WebRTC.

Vidyo´s long track record of innovation began in 2005 when it co-developed H.264 SVC, built its first commercially available implementation and introduced its patented selective forwarding unit (SFU) approach to the video conferencing market.

Vidyo is the provider of integrated video collaboration for businesses that require the highest quality, real-time video communications available to directly embed into their business processes. Learn more at
