Ovolab previews Phlink 3 at Macworld Expo SF 2006.
San Francisco, CA (USA) – January 10, 2006 – Ovolab(R) today announced the
third major release of Phlink, its innovative and award-winning telephony
software for Mac OS X, that will ship in February 2006.
Phlink 3 introduces innovative new features, including call snooping,
support for Elgato’s EyeTV and greater control over Phlink’s functionality.
When call snooping is active, Phlink records all conversations that take
place on the phone line, regardless of whether Phlink has answered the
phone or not. This is an extremely useful new feature that allows users to
keep a record of all conversations for later playback. “You no longer need
to scribble down notes on a piece of paper,” says Alberto Ricci, Ovolab’s
CEO. “Just as you can keep a copy of all outgoing email, Phlink can record
all your calls.” Call snooping works with any call that takes place on the
phone line, including conference calls. Call recordings are stored as audio
files on the user’s Mac: they can be labeled, annotated, browsed and sorted
using Phlink, and they are even indexed for Spotlight searches.
Users of Elgato’s popular software for digital video recording can now
schedule recordings remotely over the phone, by simply calling home and
typing a secret code on the telephone keypad. If you forgot to tell EyeTV
to record your favorite show, simply call Phlink and tell it to record it –
at the desired time, on the desired channel! “We are impressed with
Phlink’s flexibility,” said Dr. Markus Fest, President and founder of
Elgato Systems. “The seamless EyeTV integration adds another very
interesting option for remotely scheduling EyeTV recordings.”
Also new in version 3.0 of Ovolab Phlink are an improved preferences window
which allows greater customization of the software, group calling features,
easier voice mailbox setup, and support for Intel-based Macs.
Macworld Expo attendees can preview version 3 of Phlink this week, by
visiting Ovolab at booth #407 in the Special Interest Pavilion.
