RICHARDSON, Texas, Aug. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Damaka®, a technology pioneer in mobile unified communications and collaboration (UCC), today announced the launch of its industry first multi-party video conferencing solution for Android based devices, in particular the Sprint™ HTC® EVO™ 4G.

Damaka's Amadeo™ platform offers a multi-party video solution that utilizes the front-facing camera and the 1 Ghz processor of the EVO device to enable users to both send and receive video simultaneously over WiFi, 3G, or 4G networks. Video conference sessions can be conducted cross platform, with any other device using Amadeo, including Android, iPad, iPhone, Symbian and Windows Mobile devices.

"Video conferencing and collaboration over handsets has, in the past, been limited by air interface bandwidth and latency, adoption of multiple cameras, handset processing capability and cross device interoperability," said Francis Sideco, principal analyst, iSuppli Corporation.  "Leveraging the latest wireless broadband technologies, front-facing cameras and processing capabilities of the new class of smartphones such as the EVO to engage in live multi-party video conferencing sessions with users on any device, regardless of operating system or network, will be of great interest to the rapidly growing number of smartphone users."

The Amadeo platform offers live multi-party video conferencing along with its unprecedented capability to toggle between front and rear cameras on the Android based devices during a live video calling session.  The solution offering includes features such as application and desktop sharing with voice, editing, zooming and panning capabilities; Presence; Instant Messaging; and multi-party audio conferencing.  The solution also features Sweeping™ technology, Damaka's innovative method of transferring in-process sessions to and from multiple devices, regardless of operating system or network.

"HTC has become one of the leading makers of Android based Smartphones," said Siva Chaturvedi, CEO of Damaka.  "Our Amadeo platform leverages Sprint's 4G network coupled with HTC EVO's device capabilities, such as 1GHz processor and front facing camera, to offer users an unrivaled multi-party video conferencing solution."
