VidyoGateway Version 20.1.0: General Availability Release

Product Bulletin No. 1274

 

 

 

VidyoGateway™ Version 20.1.0

What's New in This Release? 

Major Platform Operating System (OS) Update

  • Enghouse Vidyo performed a major platform OS update, thereby enhancing the performance, stability, and security of the VidyoGateway.
  • Additional benefits include:
    • Updates to most third-party libraries.
    • Continual security updates to the underlying OS.
    • Streamlined patching of third-party software components.

OPUS Support with VidyoConnect™ 

  • When registering to the VidyoPortal™, the VidyoGateway checks the system's capabilities, and then one of the following occurs:
    • If the VidyoPortal supports Opus audio, the VidyoGateway configures itself to use Opus audio on the SVC side so when a gateway participant joins a VidyoConnect call, the conference continues to use Opus.
    • If the VidyoPortal does not support Opus audio, the VidyoGateway configures itself to use SPEEX/RED on the SVC side.

Media Relay Support for H.323 and SIP Endpoints

  • This version supports media relay for H.323 and SIP endpoints.

Admin UI Support for Experimental Features

  • In the Experimental Features section of the VidyoGateway Admin UI General > Advanced page, you can enable the following:
    • The API Interface checkbox which allows API requests to go through to the VidyoGateway (but only after you’ve authenticated using the API key). 
    • RTMP streaming (via API only).
  • To learn more about these features, refer to the "Configuring Advanced Settings" section of version 20.1.0 of the VidyoGateway Administrator Guide.

Access Control Modes for Allowing or Blocking Whitelisted and Blacklisted IP Addresses

  • The VidyoGateway Admin UI General > Access Control page now includes three Access Control modes that enable you to:
    • Allow all incoming calls to reach the VidyoGateway.
    • Allow incoming calls only from whitelisted IP addresses.
    • Block incoming calls from blacklisted IP addresses.
  • To learn more about these modes, refer to the "Configuring Access Control Settings" section of version 20.1.0 of the VidyoGateway Administrator Guide.

Vidyo is happy to announce version 3.5.1 of the VidyoGateway™ 

As part of our continuous effort to provide you with a better experience and a superior product, we're happy to release VidyoGateway version 3.5.1. Here are a couple of the updates that we've made in this version: 

Improved admin control of the DTMF functionality
When the Call Control via DTMF feature is enabled, participants who join a conference are immediately told which button to press on their DTMF keypads to hear the call control options. However, if you already have DTMF controls available on your PBX or audio conferencing service, version 3.5.1 now allows you to completely disable this functionality using the VidyoGateway Admin UI.
Resolved issues
We’ve fixed a number of issues to enhance both the security and usability of the VidyoGateway. For specific details about which issues we've resolved, see the VidyoGateway Version 3.5.1 Resolved and Known Issues document.

In accordance with the Vidyo Software Maintenance Policy, Vidyo is also pleased to announce version 3.5.1 as an Anchor Release. Anchor Releases for Vidyo endpoints and servers are marked in green on the Vidyo Compatibility Matrix.
