OOVOO TO DEMONSTRATE THE FIRST HIGH DEFINITION MULTI-POINT VIDEO CHAT ON A MOBILE PLATFORM
Barcelona, Spain (February 15, 2011)- Today at Mobile World Congress (MWC), ooVoo, a leading video communication service provider with a best-in-class mobile video chat solution, will demonstrate the first High Definition (HD), multi-point video chat on Qualcomm Incorporated's Snapdragon™ Mobile Development Platform (MDP) based on MSM8655™ for the Android OS. MWC attendees can experience the live demo at the Qualcomm booth in Exhibit Hall 8 # 8B53 and the ooVoo booth in the App Planet # 7A38, both at the FIRA.
"ooVoo's launch of HD video chat using the Snapdragon™ MDP is a quantum leap forward in mobile video communications with technology that is optimized for larger screen tablet devices," said Philippe Schwartz, CEO of ooVoo. "This live demonstration at MWC 2011 is another important step in ooVoo's positioning as the best mobile video chat service in the industry."
The HD multi-point mobile video solution is available immediately for device manufacturers to integrate on smartphone and tablet devices for deployment over ooVoo's HD-ready global video service cloud and also will be available in the Android Market in the near future.
ooVoo demonstrated the first multi-point VGA high resolution mobile video chat solution on an Android-based smartphone development platform in Qualcomm's booth at the Computer Electronics Show (CES) in January 2011. The combination of Qualcomm's advanced hardware codec and powerful Snapdragon chipset, and ooVoo's video quality and cloud-based architecture, resulted in four times the video resolution delivered compared to solutions available in the market today, while reducing device power and CPU consumption by 50 percent.
ooVoo allows up to six users to simultaneously participate on a mobile video call without compromising quality. ooVoo's innovation in mobile video chat software, integrated with Qualcomm's differentiated hardware, will elevate the mobile experience to levels that have not been achieved by competitive video chat services.
In December, ooVoo launched the first 4G mobile video chat service that allows 6-way video chat and unparalleled quality. This service works over Wi-Fi, 3G and 4G to simultaneously connect smartphone, PC and Mac users.
