Best New Start-Up

Interop judges presented the Best New Start-Up Award to VDO360, a specialist in Unified Communications hardware.

VDO360 offers a variety of UC equipment, ranging from webcams to microphones, but its claim to fame is perhaps its VDO Cart, which bundles together a 12-time optical zoom PTZ camera, a professional grade microphone, LED monitors, and Intel i7-based computer for top-notch graphics, video and Blu-ray presentations. As its name suggests, all this equipment is bundled together on top of a sturdy, moveable cart, so users don't need to confine their UC experience into a single conference room.

The VDO Cart has software codecs for UC apps including Skype, Microsoft Lync, Cisco Jabber and Polycom m100, and it priced at just under $5,000.

Interop said the Best New Start-Up award was up for grabs among all Best of Interop entries, as long as the vendor didn't exist as an independent company prior to Jan. 1, 2012.
