Today Vaddio and Blue Jeans Network, the leader in interoperable video conferencing services, announced a partnership allowing customers who use Vaddio’s EasyUSB tools and popular soft codecs such as Skype and Cisco Jabber to transform their personal computers into effective, affordable videoconferencing systems, to interconnect these systems into multiparty video conferences using the Blue Jeans service.

Whether consumers are looking to create a simple videoconferencing system or a fully integrated boardroom, Vaddio gives them the tools needed to make your software codecs work in a real enterprise environment.
“When we launched our EasyUSB Tools, we knew that we were going to transform everyone’s expectations about the quality they could achieve from a soft codec,” explained Rob Sheeley, President of Vaddio. “so hHaving solved the quality issue, we now next looked at possible solutions that would allow these soft codec systems to interoperate with other videoconferencing systems. Blue Jeans Network, we discovered, hasd this amazing cloud-based service model that not only provides multipoint bridging services, but also allows a soft codec user to be able to connect to any other systems such as Polycom, LifeSize, Tandberg and so on.”
