Overall Satisfaction with Vidyo

Vidyo is used for video conferencing, primarily for larger meetings with a participant count of more than 100 people. It is being used by one department (of around 30 people) only, and mainly in connection with external meetings where participants from many different organizations world wide are involved in planning and as participants.
  • Easy to connect
  • In-browser works well
  • Easy to set up meetings
  • Better support for Linux client
  • Support for breakout rooms
  • Multiple screen sharing
  • Efficient for setting up large scale meetings
  • Reducing the support needed for users, as everything can be done in-browser
  • Improving contact with external collaborators
Vidyo is better than the competitors for large meetings with many participants, due to ease of use for participants - everything in-browser has a very low threshold. Due to its lack of breakout rooms, it is less suited for smaller (or internal) meetings, where you can expect everyone to install a client.

Do you think Vidyo delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Are you happy with Vidyo's feature set?

No

Did Vidyo live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Vidyo go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy Vidyo again?

Yes

Vidyo is very well suited for large meetings, where you cannot instruct participants to install software clients, but needs everyone to be able to connect through the browser. As such, it works best for large keynote-style talks, and is less suited for smaller meetings where only a few people will be speaking, but at the same time. Similarly it is less well suited for teaching.
