Vidyo Helps CERN Connect 20,000 Scientists to Collaborate Globally on Research that Explores the Mysteries of the Universe

Finding out what the universe is made of and how it works requires an enormous amount of collaboration. A community of 20,000 scientists from over 600 institutes collaborate with CERN and working together closely and communication in such context is essential. Since 1996, video conferencing has played an essential role in CERN’s operations. Most recently, the organization has deployed high-definition Vidyo® technology to enhance the user experience of its thousands of monthly video conferencing meetings (hundreds of large meetings) and to meet its daunting requirements for scalability, reliability, and end-point flexibility. Today, scientists around the world use Vidyo’s products to collaborate on Large Hadron Collider (LHC) experiments, whose research includes the study of the Higgs boson.
