SWITCHvideoconf was based on the videoconferencing software Vidyo, owned and operated by CERN. By the end of January 2021, CERN ceased to support and stoped the operation of Vidyo.
According to the results of the survey we took and regarding the usage statistics, we have decided, that we will discontinue SWITCHvideoconf by the end of January 2021 as well. Due to COVID-19, most organisations have switched to the big players of videoconferencing, such as Zoom, MS Teams and WebEx. We do not have the resources to compete with this kind of providers. However, we do offer the possibility for you to order Zoom licenses on advantageous terms via our procurement service.
What is more, we will keep our Jitsi instance for the time being, so that your organisation can benefit from this additional service for free during the COVID-19 pandemic.
We thank you for your support.
The SWITCHvideoconf Team
