For immediate release
Ovolab Phlink 1.5 adds support for network caller ID.
Paris, France (Europe) – August 31, 2004 – Ovolab(r) today released
version 1.5 of Ovolab Phlink, its innovative and award-winning
telephony software for the Mac.
Ovolab Phlink turns your Mac into a powerful answering machine and
telephone information center. Widely used in the home, home office
and in businesses, Ovolab Phlink greets callers with personalized
greetings, plays caller-specific ringtones, sends voice messages by
email and more.
The new version, demoed throughout the week at Apple Expo in Paris,
adds support for network caller ID. Codenamed “Appelezvous”, this
technology builds on Apple’s Rendezvous to allow automatic
broadcasting of caller information over the local network – without
requiring any configuration.
When a call is received, Ovolab Phlink pops up a translucent window
with information about the caller. Thanks to Appelezvous, this window
can now pop up on other Macs on the network too.
“This is extremely useful to small businesses, so that everybody can
tell at a glance whether one should answer the call or if it’s for
somebody else,” says Alberto Ricci, CEO of Ovolab. “But it is also
very useful when the Mac running Phlink is a server, or simply
located in another room.”
Combining Appelezvous with other powerful features, including caller
announcement, call forwarding and call notifications, Ovolab Phlink
today becomes even more powerful. It gives businesses the
functionality that was once available only through expensive
equipment, and it allows families to make their telephone part of the
