Qualcomm and ooVoo Join Efforts to Launch the First High Definition Video Chat Offering on a Mobile Platform

2011 International CES
Exhibit #30313

LAS VEGAS--()--Today at the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2011, Qualcomm, the world leader in next-generation mobile technologies, and ooVoo, a leading video communication service provider with best-in-class mobile video chat solution, announced a joint effort to provide high definition video to mobile communications.

Qualcomm and ooVoo will jointly demonstrate the first multi-party, VGA high resolution mobile video chat solution on a production Android smartphone device at the Qualcomm booth in South Hall 3, upper level, exhibit #30313 at CES in Las Vegas, January 5-9, 2011. By combining Qualcomm’s advanced hardware codec implementation and power of the Snapdragon chipset, and ooVoo’s award-winning quality of service and ease of use, the demonstration promises to deliver four times the quality in mobile video chat while reducing the device power and CPU consumption by half. The improvements provide a differentiated user experience that is highly appealing to end users.

Qualcomm leads the industry in high performance mobile media hardware solutions and enables ooVoo’s high resolution mobile video chat using Qualcomm’s hardware codec capability. ooVoo allows up to six users to simultaneously participate on a mobile video call without compromising quality. The company’s innovation in mobile video chat software, integrated with Qualcomm’s differentiated hardware, will elevate the mobile experience to levels that have not been achieved by competitive video chat services.

“We’re delighted to work in tandem with Qualcomm to deliver the best mobile video conference in the market place,” said Philippe Schwartz, CEO at ooVoo. “ooVoo provides the best-in-class mobile video chat anywhere, anytime. Our game-changing technology allows users to experience high quality, multi-device and multi-party video chat in ways that is not available with other services.”

In December, ooVoo launched the first 4G mobile video chat service that allows 6-way video chat and unparalleled quality. This service works over Wi-Fi, 3G and 4G to simultaneously connect smartphone, PC and Mac users.
