DISA Announces Full Operational Capability for Videoconferencing Service

video conferenceThe Defense Information Systems Agency‘s Global Video Service has achieved full operational capability and has been deployed at Defense Enterprise Computing Centers to support IP-based video teleconferencing.

GVS is based on Vidyo‘s H.264 SVC commercial videoconferencing technology, which received certification from the Joint Interoperability Test Command in 2012 for use at the Defense Department, Vidyo said Tuesday.

The company noted that GVS reached initial operational capability in June last year as DISA worked to use IP services and leverage the VidyoWorks platform for DoD’s enterprise VTC needs.

It added that GVS supports interoperability between room- and desktop-based users and with H.323 and SIP systems, as well as collaboration over secure and classified or secure but unclassified networks.

The service also features HD-quality video, multipoint content sharing and PIN codes for access to the conference, Vidyo said.

DISA expects to add support for Android and iOS devices this year.
