VRI...Where technology and language work hand-in-hand

We are pleased to offer Video Remote Interpreting (VRI) services to you and your customers/patients.  A wide search of the market to find available VRI hardware and software tools that are both cost effective and high quality has led us to Vidyo, Inc as our video technology partner.  The Bridge houses and operates our very own VidyoConference router and software package utilizing Vidyo’s patented "Adaptive Video Layering". This technology gives us the ability to bring high quality HD video conference encounters to our clients, using ordinary internet connections and standard hardware like PC's, notebooks, iPads, etc. The entire VRI experience begins and ends at The Bridge; we manage the whole encounter for you!
