  • For more information on how to use this feature, refer to the "Configuring Advanced Workflow" section in the Vidyo and Epic Integration with VidyoConnect Context-Aware Linking (CAL) article. 

Retry Button Added to Quickly Reload Join Page

    • To learn more about the Chromium bug, click here.
  • As Microsoft® Edge and Google Chrome™ are both based on Chromium, they are both affected by this bug. Therefore, if you use these browsers, you will have an option to select the Retry button from the splash page.

VidyoPortal and VidyoRouter Version 19.3.0: General Availability Release

Product Bulletin No. 1264 

 

 

 

VidyoPortal™ and VidyoRouter™ Version 19.3.0

What's New?

Vidyo’s Epic Context-Aware Linking (CAL) Integration Now Available in Epic's App Orchard Marketplace

  • Starting with the Epic February 2019 release, Epic requires the inclusion of an Epic-Client-ID for all third-party integrations that use their APIs.
    • In order to support Epic's new requirements, Enghouse Vidyo has obtained its own unique Epic-Client-ID and enrolled the Vidyo Context-Aware-Linking (CAL) integration app in Epic's App Orchard marketplace.
    • Starting with this release, the Epic CAL integration will support sending the Epic-Client-ID whenever the SetExternalConnectionStatus API is called.
  • To ensure that your cloud or on-premises CAL deployment will continue to work successfully with the Epic February 2019 release, you must:
    • Contact your Epic representative to obtain access to Epic’s App Orchard marketplace.
    • Contact Vidyo Sales or your Vidyo account representative once you have requested Vidyo's CAL app via the App Orchard site.

New Connection Test for Configuring the Epic Interconnect Server

  • More quickly identify and resolve Epic CAL configuration issues.
  • Generate helpful HTTP status notifications such as 408 - Request Timeout, 404 - Not Found, and 401 - Bad Credentials.
    • Use this information to debug Epic CAL configuration issues.

Sample URL Generator for Test Calls

  • Easily conduct test calls.
  • Generate sample Epic CAL URL links and use the links to:
    • Join test calls.
    • Compare the sample URL extData with the extData generated from Epic.

Multi-Server Epic Interconnect Support With a Single Tenant

  • Configure multiple Epic Interconnect servers on a single Vidyo tenant by using an "orgID" to differentiate each server.
  • Simplify your Epic CAL configuration, especially if you’re a healthcare entity with multiple Epic installations due to mergers, etc.
  • Reduce the costs associated with maintaining multiple environments.

Ability to Select the Epic Mode for Your Needs

  • Set your Epic CAL integration to Production, Test, or Legacy mode:
    • Select Production when configuring and deploying in a production environment.
    • Select Test when configuring a lab environment.
    • Select Legacy when debugging and using systems running versions earlier than Epic February 2019.

API Usage Reports

  • Download CSV files with data about usage of the SetExternalConnectionStatus API with your Epic Interconnect server.
  • Select the start and end date for each report.

Additional REST API for Epic CAL

  • Programmatically invoke the CAL workflow for embedded applications. 

Per-Tenant Status Notifications for Third-Party Integrations

  • Simple REST/JSON format for lightweight processing.
  • Receive rich status notification messages for:
    • Login and logout user events
    • Join and leave conference events
    • Epic CAL events

Updated Landing Pages for iPad® OS and macOS Catalina

  • The most recent version of Apple’s Safari® for iPad OS and macOS Catalina advertises the same user-agent. Therefore, the VidyoPortal cannot determine if an iPad or a desktop are connecting.
  • To remedy this issue, VidyoPortal version 19.3.0 provides landing pages that allow the user to select the device with which to join conferences or download the app.

When?

On-premises customers can download this version on November 4, 2019 and cloud customers will automatically be upgraded on December 8, 2019.

VidyoPortal and VidyoRouter Version 19.1.0: General Availability Release

Product Bulletin No. 1247

 

 

Vidyo is Pleased to Announce VidyoPortal™ and VidyoRouter™ Version 19.1.0

In VidyoPortal and VidyoRouter version 19.1.0, we've made improvements to the TytoCare integration for our healthcare customers, we've updated some of the icons on the Control Meeting page, we've added support for direct dialing to our Custom Invocation feature, and we've resolved a number of issues that notably enhance security. 

What's New in This Release?

TytoCare™ Integration Improved Error Messages and Logs

TytoCare is 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 VidyoPortal and VidyoRouter version 19.1.0, we've improved the TytoCare integration by:

  • Adding more informative error messages. For example, we now display the relevant error codes when the Connection Test is run.
  • Adding more details to the TytoCare Audit and App logs. For example, we now log the HTTP status codes for all Tyto REST API calls.

NOTE:  The TytoCare integration requires version 18.4.0 or later of the VidyoPortal and VidyoRouter as well as version 19.1.0 or later of the VidyoConnect desktop application. If you are an on-premises customer, refer to the Configuring TytoCare Integration article for information about how to configure your VidyoPortal Super Admin and Tenant Admin portal for TytoCare integration.

Control Meeting Page Icon Updates

The Control Meeting page enables you to control meeting functions, such as disconnecting participants, muting participants, adding PINs, and more.

  • The Control Meeting page that you access from the VidyoPortal now includes the same icons that you will see in version 19.2.0 and later of the VidyoConnect application. For example, we've updated the icons that enable you to disable video  and mute audio  for all participants without allowing them to re-enable.

Custom Invocation Support for Direct Dialing

Custom Invocation enables third-party partners and developers to customize the VidyoConnect client and invoke it from their platform. With version 19.1.0, Custom Invocation now supports:

  • Directly dialing online users. Applications integrating with the VidyoConnect app can now embed the direct-dial links for registered users in the VidyoPortal and use those links to initiate direct-dial video calls. For more information about how to enable this workflow, refer to the "Direct Dial Parameter" section of the Using Custom Invocation article.
  • This feature requires version 19.2.0 or later of the VidyoConnect application.

Resolved Issues

In this release, we've resolved a number of issues, including many issues that enhance security and usability, such as this:

  • We've corrected an issue with orphaned records that occurred on the Control Meeting page. Prior to this fix, the display names of participants would turn into orphaned records 10 to 15 minutes after they joined a call. Since these records could no longer be referenced in the database, call moderators were unable to mute the participants' microphones or speakers or disconnect the participants from the calls via the Control Meeting page.

Want More Info?

If you'd like to get additional details about this release and the known and resolved issues, refer to the VidyoPortal and VidyoRouter: About Version 19.1.0 article on the Vidyo Help Center.

What's Next?

  • If you're a cloud customer, you don't need to take any action; Vidyo has upgraded your VidyoPortal and VidyoRouter to version 19.1.0 for you.
  • If you have an on-premises VidyoPortal and VidyoRouter, go ahead and download the software from the Portal and Router Packages section on the Vidyo Help Center.

Need Help?

Vidyo Logo
Vidyo is Happy to Announce VidyoPortal™ and VidyoRouter Version 18.4.0 

Version 18.4.0 introduces 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.

What's New?

TytoCare Integration

  • When the Tyto device is used in conjunction with the VidyoConnect™ desktop application, the remote clinician can virtually meet with the POC users via secure and reliable video conferencing. 
    • The integration enables the TytoCare solution to act as a robust extension of the remote clinicians’ diagnostic capabilities by allowing them to see and speak with patients while conducting virtual stethoscope, otoscope, skin, and other basic medical exams.

VidyoPortal and VidyoRouter Version 18.3.1: General Availability Release

Product Bulletin No. 1231

 

Vidyo Logo
Vidyo Is Pleased to Announce VidyoConnect™ for Desktop Version 18.3.1

VidyoConnect is Vidyo's meeting solution for team collaboration that speeds global alignment across your enterprise, allowing for better-informed decisions, faster responses, and deeper trust. We invite you to visit our VidyoConnect page to find out more about the VidyoConnect applications, the benefits of moving to our cloud services, and the plans we offer. 

In the 18.3.1 release, we've resolved a video performance issue from the previous 18.2.4 version. Please read below for more information.   

What's New?

Resolved Issue 

In VidyoConnect version 18.2.4, Vidyo discovered and resolved an issue where, in certain scenarios, the VidyoConnect application would prevent the operating system from going into suspend/sleep mode and displaying a screen saver. However, black video tiles then occasionally began to appear during some video calls as a result of the fix.

In version 18.3.1, we have resolved the black tiles issue in addition to the previous screen saver issue. Therefore, the VidyoConnect application should now allow the operating system to go into suspend/sleep mode without causing black tiles to appear during active video calls.

VidyoPortal and VidyoRouter Version 3.4.6: General Availability Release

Product Bulletin No. 1182 

 

Vidyo Logo
Vidyo is happy to announce version 3.4.6 of the VidyoPortal™ and VidyoRouter™

With this release of the VidyoPortal and VidyoRouter, we've significantly increased the limit on the number of tenants you can have on your VidyoPortal. We also added REST Web Service authentication so you’re no longer limited to SOAP only. Lastly, you can now publish user-level and room-level events to a TCP stream, freeing you up from having to poll the VidyoPortal. Upgrade to version 3.4.6, our most stable VidyoPortal ever, and let go of limitations!

 
Support for Many More Tenants
We’ve extended the prefix length from 3 digits to 7 digits to allow for more tenants on the VidyoPortal. Now your VidyoPortal can support up to 10 million tenants instead of only 999!
Web Service Enhancements
  • We now offer a new authentication method for tenants: REST Web Service authentication. This new authentication method is being offered in addition to the current SOAP authentication method.
  • For your convenience, one Super Admin user can now invoke Admin Web Services across multiple tenants.
Notable Performance and Stability Improvements
In this release, we’ve made significant performance and stability improvements, resulting in the most stable VidyoPortal we’ve ever offered.
Event Streaming
User-level and room-level events (like logging in, joining a room, or adding a room) can now be published on a TCP stream. With this feature, you no longer have to spend time polling the VidyoPortal to see what's going on. Instead, events get pushed to you in real-time so that you can immediately apply business rules to those events.
 
In addition, if you have your own conference monitoring system, this feature is especially beneficial because you can use the information for reporting, analysis, and more.

 

In accordance with the Vidyo Software Maintenance Policy, Vidyo is also pleased to announce version 3.4.6 as an Anchor Release. Anchor Releases for Vidyo endpoints and servers are marked in green on the Vidyo Compatibility Matrix.
