RESEARCH PAPER: Vidyo Disaggregates Multipoint Control Unit (MCU) to Scale Videoconferencing

Camera sensors and video-capable displays are following Moore’s Law: declining cost and increasing quality curves. Video hardware is now ubiquitous in mobile computing devices (smartphones, tablets, and notebooks). As camera module costs continue to decline, a growing range of low-cost consumer and commercial devices will be video-enabled, including many types of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) endpoints.
