NEW YORK, Sept. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, ooVoo unveiled the latest version of its award-winning, cross-platform video chat service for Mac users, which includes desktop sharing, a powerful business tool that ooVoo customers have requested for their video conferencing experience. 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 communication toolset.
Business owners and operators know the high cost of travel today - in both time 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.
"We have an active and growing Mac customer base, and we're committed to continuing 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."
With rapidly-expanding remote workforces and continuing economic pressures that 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.
With ooVoo's enhanced payment options, users can add additional video windows or phone minutes any time they want to by paying with ooVoo Credits. Phone minutes can be added for calls to the United States, Canada, Germany, Italy, the UK and Israel. Additional phone countries will be announced soon.
Business users can connect from anywhere with an internet connection: remote hotel rooms, airports or home offices, while sharing files, text chatting, sending video messages, recording conversations, experiencing high definition video quality and more. The business plan for Mac eliminates banner advertisements from video conversations for plan purchasers and anyone they invite to join on a call, further enhancing the video conferencing experience.
ooVoo provides a high-quality webcam video chat and communication service that delivers a meaningful way for people to call and connect over the Internet. ooVoo's technology enables people to experience a face-to-face conversation and share a full range of emotions as if they are in the same room together, whether they are across the street or across the globe. ooVoo's superior quality video and audio are available to anyone with a computer, broadband connection and a web camera, for real-time video calls with up to six friends, relatives and colleagues simultaneously. ooVoo offers high-resolution video, video conversation recording, telephony, video messaging, instant message chat and file sharing among other capabilities.
