ooVoo version 2.2 for Mac is designed to give business owners and users high quality,
portable video conferencing at a fraction of the price of room-based telepresence
systems. ooVoo 2.2 is the most robust video conferencing solution, with unique features
that make it easy to use, affordable and a flexible addition to businesses’ existing

and money. Allowing people to continue to meet face-to-face and on a more regular
basis, ooVoo 2.2 for Mac allows businesses of all sizes to bring an affordable,
real-time communication video conferencing solution into the workplace without expensive
hardware or the need for technical support.

to develop our Mac platform for businesses and consumers,” said ooVoo CEO Philippe
Schwartz. “The features in version 2.2 for Mac make ooVoo easier to use and give
people a great alternative to expensive, often complex, video conferencing services.”

limit travel expenditures, ooVoo’s new Mac solution comes with cost conscious business
plans beginning at $39.95 per month per person with discounts available depending
on the number of users.
ooVoo’s new 2.2 version for Mac features desktop sharing, allowing business users
to display their presentations or documents to their video conference participants
while maintaining face-to-face contact.

rooms, airports or home offices, while sharing files, text chatting, sending video
