What's New?

Far End Camera Control (Desktop and Mobile)

  • This innovative feature allows registered and guest participants in a call to remotely control a supported Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) camera connected to a far end VidyoConnect desktop or VidyoRoom endpoint.
    • FECC works with VidyoPortal version 17.1.0 or later and must be enabled under Device Settings by the camera owner prior to joining a VidyoConnect call.
  • FECC allows users, including those in healthcare and education settings, the ability to remotely move a PTZ camera to obtain better views of patients, educational materials, and other points of interest.  
  • To learn more about using the FECC capability and to view a list of FECC-supported cameras, refer to the Using the VidyoConnect Far End Camera Control (FECC) Capability for Desktop and Mobile article
Login Banner (Desktop Only)
  • VidyoConnect for Desktop can now display a configurable banner to users as soon as they successfully log in to the VidyoConnect application.
  • The banner could display, for example, a welcome message, information about your company, or security information that users need to read and acknowledge.
  • To customize the banner as a VidyoPortal Super Admin, refer to the Customizing the Login and Welcome Banners article. 

End User License Agreement (EULA)  (Desktop and Mobile)

  • After you install the VidyoConnect application, you can now read and accept Vidyo’s EULA before you first launch the application. 
  • You will not be prompted to accept the EULA again unless the application is re-installed or upgraded with a new EULA version.

Terms and Conditions  (Desktop and Mobile)

  • In accordance with data privacy regulations, you will now be prompted to read and accept our updated User Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy the first time you log in to the VidyoConnect application. 

    • This applies to registered VidyoCloud™ customers including auto-login users, SAML-authenticated users, guest users on the VidyoCloud portal, and those using VidyoCloud portal endpoints such as VidyoRoom.
    • This does not apply to customers using older versions of VidyoConnect software or on-premises customers.
