ooVoo vooms past Typical Video Conferencing

Videoconference communications provider ooVoo has pushed out a Mac version to complement its PC software that provides telephony, video messaging, instant messaging and files sharing capabilities.

Currently a free desktop application, the provider has also enhanced its tool to include a conversation recording feature, which lets enterprises record create video “notes” of an online meeting. The New York-based privately-held company is prepping both business and consumer service packages to deploy in the next few months.

“In the future we’re looking to provide application sharing services as well as additional security encryption features as we realize those are capabilities the enterprise environment are looking for,” Phillipe Schwartz, CEO, told InternetNews.com during a four-person video chat conference via ooVoo.

Such videoconference advancements fall in line with the increasing adoption of unified messaging platforms that let enterprises reach out various ways to foster quicker decision making in a more cost-effective manner. ooVoo isn’t alone in this field, Microsoft is also making inroads in unified communications.

As the company related, fire department personnel who once traveled several hours a month to meet are using ooVoo to meet and saving big on gas and personal time. A group of retired businessmen who are located in various states are meeting in video chats as plan a new fishing lure business. Public relations firms use ooVoo to interview prospective new hires as they realize video presence is increasingly popular in media and marketing efforts given the popularity of YouTube sites.

There are currently 1.5 million video conferences being held via ooVoo a month.
