BCS Global introduces iView, powered by Vidyo 3.0, adding user experience innovation to the Industry’s most scalable collaboration system.

BCS Global today announced its next generation iView, powered by Vidyo, Inc, providing enhanced usability and new innovations to its software-based video communications and collaboration portfolio with the integration of VidyoConferencing™ 3.0. Vidyo, a strategic partner of BCS Global, has revolutionized the video conferencing industry with its award-winning VidyoWorks™ platform that delivers unparalleled user experiences on devices and networks people already have, all at audio conferencing prices and while connecting legacy video conferencing devices and phones as needed.


The VidyoConferencing 3.0 upgrade propels the industry forward once again, providing users with a newly designed integrated desktop that raises the bar on the video user experience and democratizes access to visual communications.

“iView powered by VidyoConferencing 3.0 is a game-changing product that delivers significant new enhancements and capabilities for end users using or considering iView in their business. These enhancements will lead to more productive communication and collaboration, across an array of different devices and at an affordable cost. This really is an innovative, exciting and effective way for organisations to work on a day to day basis; whether communicating internally within their business, or externally with their customers or suppliers.” says Clive Sawkins, CEO of BCS Global. 

The next generation iView, based on the VidyoConferencing 3.0 upgrade, also offers two new room system form factors at market-disrupting price / performance levels with enhanced interactive content collaboration and tight integration with a variety of unified communications solutions.

This demonstrates the scalability, robustness and ease of use of the Vidyo offering.”
