Easy-to-Use Consumer Video Technology Lets You See and Talk with up to Six
People Simultaneously Anywhere in the World
NEW YORK, June 11 /CNW/ -- ooVoo, an innovator in the way people
communicate online, today announced its free, real-time video technology that
lets consumers experience face-to-face conversations over the Internet.
ooVoo's new video communication service features clear, high-quality video and
audio in real-time. By sharing a story, a smile and visible emotions with
ooVoo, communication becomes more meaningful and fun.
With ooVoo up to six people can connect on a call at the same time with
high-quality audio and video that allows them to see one another, talk and
share in the same way they would in person. Consumers only need a broadband
internet connection, web camera, speakers and microphone. In addition to
video, ooVoo lets consumers send video messages to both ooVoo and non-ooVoo
users, Instant Message (IM), and share files, such as documents or pictures-
for a complete communication experience.
ooVoo gives consumers:
- A meaningful and fun communication experience
- An easy-to-use and free tool, that can be shared with friends and family
around the globe
- A high-quality technology for seeing, talking, IMing, sharing files, or
sending video messages
"ooVoo is dramatically changing the way people communicate on a daily
basis, allowing them to share real conversations, real emotions and their true
personality as though they were in the same room," said Philippe Schwartz, CEO
of ooVoo. "Now when people say 'I cannot wait to see you,' they can
immediately share a moment and an actual smile from another continent, across
the country or down the street."
Communication comes alive with ooVoo's real-time video. Phone calls,
emails and IM lack the ability to convey emotion and often lead to
miscommunication. By reducing the latency issues that cause the blurring and
delayed video quality often seen in other online video technologies, ooVoo
breaks down barriers which have prevented more widespread adoption of video
communications in the past.
At the application's current peak of six-way multi-person video chat,
ooVoo will only consume a portion of the bandwidth of a basic DSL (digital
subscriber line) or cable connection. While IM and VoIP providers have
incorporated video as an add-on feature, ooVoo was developed with video at its
core, and delivers the highest-quality multi-party video communication online.
"ooVoo offers a real time video telephony platform with quality audio and
video functionality that's easy to use," said Rebecca Swensen, VoIP services
research analyst at IDC. "ooVoo's platform enables users to maximize the value
of the internet and have a connected experience that can improve
communications with friends, family, and colleagues."
To further enhance communication and adoption a link to an ooVoo user's
profile can be embedded in an online social networking profile, website or
email signature that can automatically launch an ooVoo conversation.
ooVoo is a free and easy to install application available for download at
ooVoo provides free real-time video communication technology, delivering
a new way for people to connect. ooVoo's technology enables people to
experience a face-to-face connection and share emotions over the Internet in a
way that no other communication medium permits. Delivering the highest quality
video and audio, ooVoo provides a seamless and interactive communication
experience. ooVoo enables any individual with a computer, broadband connection
and a Web camera to communicate in real-time with friends, relatives and
colleagues anywhere in the world.
