Easy-to-Use Consumer Video Technology Lets You See and Talk with up to Six People Simultaneously Anywhere in the WorlAAAAAAA> NEW YORK, June 11 /Xnhua-PRNewswire/ -- ooVoo, an innovator in the way people communicate online, today announced its free, real-time video technology that lets consumerAAAAperience 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 mulAAAAerson 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 mulAAAAarty 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.
