Vidyo as personal stylist

Posted on

At this year’s CES show Vidyo technology was at the heart of the ng Connect Program’s Virtual Personal Stylist, said to be a new concept in shopping. Vidyo’s HD videoconferencing technology enables personal interaction between consumers and product consultants for retail outlets. The demonstration was coordinated by ng Connect, the multi-industry initiative driving the development of next generation broadband services based on Long Term Evolution (LTE) and other enabling technologies.  The demonstration showcases an enriched retail experience made possible by integrating Vidyo’s innovative technology with other emerging technologies in the realm of telepresence, cloud computing and ultra-high bandwidth connectivity.   

“Next generation videoconferencing solutions that can leverage LTE offer users a wealth of applications and rich new user experiences,” stated Steve West, VP for emerging technology and media at Alcatel-Lucent and founding member of the ng Connect Program. “The Virtual Personal Stylist is a collaboration between premier fashion and beauty consumer brands, and ng Connect members Hachette Filipacchi Media U.S. (HFMUS), Vidyo, VisionMAX, Telepresence Tech, [TC]2 and Samsung to demonstrate how LTE applications can change industries. We are pleased to work with Vidyo to experience the plethora of applications enabled by LTE through their advanced video conferencing platform.”

Through the auspices of HFMUS’ ELLE, L’Oreal USA and Bloomingdales contributed cosmetics and skincare products, and the AQUA apparel line used in the Virtual Personal Stylist solution concept. “As 4G networks become available, the gap widens between Vidyo’s revolutionary personal telepresence solution and legacy video conferencing offerings,” said Ofer Shapiro, Vidyo’s co-founder and CEO.  ““The number of applications for HD multipoint video conferencing over the Internet and LTE is enormous, and video communications has become an integral part of many types of businesses, including the retail industry. Vidyo is pleased to work with the LTE community on innovative solutions as the only video conferencing member of ng Connect.”
