ooVoo Introduces High Quality Video Chat Solution for Mac

Award Winning Video Chat Experience Allows up to Six Mac and or PC Users to
Connect Simultaneously Anywhere in the World

New York, May 1, 2008 — ooVoo, an innovator in the way people communicate
online, today announced the launch of a Mac version of its high quality
video chat solution. The ooVoo Mac release is one of the most advanced and
feature rich video communication programs available to Mac users and allows
people to connect with both Mac and PC users anywhere in the world for
free. The ooVoo software can be downloaded from (

ooVoo, a recent winner of the CNET Webware 100 Award, is changing the way
friends, family and co-workers communicate online in a more meaningful way.
Mac users will now be able to connect face-to-face with up to six people at
once regardless of whether they are Mac or PC users. ooVoo Mac’s
easy-to-use features include the ability to send and receive video
messages, exchange files and text chat messages as well as import contacts
from other programs.

“We have worked hard to ensure the Mac version of ooVoo offers this
valuable part of our customer base one of the most dynamic video
experiences available today,” said Philippe Schwartz, CEO of ooVoo. “As
the highest quality cross platform Mac and PC video chat solution, we look
forward to enabling more conversations between Mac and PC users across the
globe, and breaking down the traditional barriers of video communication.”

Unlike instant messaging (IM) and voice over internet protocol (VoIP)
solutions that have incorporated video as an add-on feature, ooVoo was
developed with video at its core delivering a richer communication
experience with high quality video and reduced video delay, clear audio and
better lip synchronization. ooVoo’s high quality multi-party video chat,
with a resolution of 320 x 240 at up to 30 frames per second, can be
experienced with a standard broadband internet connection and requires
only128 Kbps (up and down) of throughput, less than half required by
competitors for a one to one video chat.

The launch of the ooVoo Mac version is a milestone in the company’s ongoing
Mac development program, which will see further announcements in the coming
months. Full system requirements for this software version include:

* Power Mac — G5 with 1Ghz or Intel Mac with 256MB of RAM
* 20MB Hard disk space
* Mac compatible Webcam and Headset
* Broadband connection
* Tiger, Leopard (OSX 10.4 and up)

Currently friends, families and co-workers are using ooVoo to communicate
face-to-face between more than 200 countries worldwide, with more the 3.5
million ooVoo video chat sessions completed each month on average. To
