ooVoo Confirms First Air-to-Ground 'Three-Way' Video Chat

ooVoo, the solution of choice for multi-point, high-quality, easy-to-use video communication, conducted the first air-to-ground three-way video conversation on April 3rd 2009 on Virgin America Flight 350 from San Francisco to Boston. This communication milestone marked a first for the airline and video conferencing industries, as ooVoo CEO Philippe Schwartz conversed live at 35,000 feet via video chat with ooVoo owner, Clay Mathile in Florida and ooVoo vice president of marketing, Lisa Abourezk in NYC.

"When I learned about Virgin America's new WiFi service I couldn't wait to put ooVoo to the test. Speaking face-to-face mid-flight with two colleagues on the ground was not only a testament to the quality of the service we've built, but to how far we've come technologically as a society," said Philippe Schwartz, CEO of ooVoo.

Every day, ooVoo connects millions of family members, co-workers, friends and online communities with its remarkably clear and highly superior video quality. ooVoo allows up to six people to video chat at the same time, to record video conversations and to call friends or colleagues that do not have ooVoo installed with a "Web Video Call," letting them easily join a video chat via a web browser. ooVoo's multi-point video was also recently seen on the Dr. Phil Show episode connecting five therapists from around the US into the live show.
