Vidyo Webconferencing with Mac Desktops and Laptops

Vidyo is a software platform for video web-conferencing that requires no specialised equipment, and works best with IOS OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard through to OSX 10.8 Mountain Lion. If you have a camera, headset and internet access, you can web-conference with Psychogeriatric SOS. It is easy to use, and requires a user to download a free guest-version of Vidyo Desktop.
