VidyoConnect for Desktop Version 19.1.1: General Availability Release



Vidyo is Pleased to Announce Version 19.1.1 of the VidyoConnect™ Desktop Application

VidyoConnect version 19.1.0 introduced integration support for TytoCare, a cloud-based telehealth solution that simulates a comprehensive physical examination using a portable WiFi-enabled diagnostic device. The Tyto device allows medical professionals to examine a patient at the Point of Care (POC) and broadcast the exam data to a remote clinician. When used in conjunction with the VidyoConnect desktop application, the remote clinician can virtually meet with the POC users via secure and reliable video conferencing.

In VidyoConnect version 19.1.1, we've enhanced the TytoCare integration workflow and we’ve made it easier for users to troubleshoot TytoCare issues.

Important Notice: Version 19.1.1 will be released Thursday, March 7, 2019. In order to better serve you with a predictable release schedule, you will receive advance notice of future releases rather than receiving notice on the day of the release.

What's New?

Detection of In-Progress Tyto Exams

When a remote clinician user attempts to start a new Tyto exam, the VidyoConnect application now detects if any Tyto exams are currently in progress. This avoids the scenario where the clinician is prevented from starting a new exam because a previous exam was accidentally left open (which could occur, for example, if the clinician is dropped from a direct call).

Troubleshooting with Tyto Server Error Codes

To enable you to troubleshoot more effectively, TytoCare-related error messages now include the Tyto server error codes.

Resolved Issues

  • Fixed a privacy issue where, in VidyoConnect meetings where the muteCameraOnJoin=true custom invocation string was set and the Waiting Room feature was enabled,  the camera was not muted even though the UI showed it as muted.
  • Fixed an issue where the active speaker’s tile occasionally switched back and forth with a non-speaking participant's tile when two or more remote participants were not muted and were producing low background noise.
  • Fixed an issue where the incorrect VidyoConnect version number was displayed when viewed using Mac OS.
