Momentum Conferencing Becomes First Canadian Conferencing Service Provider to Offer WiredRed's Multiparty Video

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 24, 2006) -

e/pop Web Conferencing to help dissolve national and international communication boundaries for Canadian corporations and agencies.

Momentum Conferencing Corporation, a 100% Canadian-owned conferencing provider, today announced that it will begin offering WiredRed's e/pop Web Conferencing, which makes Momentum the first full service conferencing supplier of e/pop in Canada. Branded as Momentum InMotion, the technology adds the face-to-face connection of live, multiparty video to a comprehensive set of features that include PowerPoint®, desktop, application and document sharing; as well as full language support for Canadian French. In addition, full Microsoft Outlook integration makes it even easier for users to schedule sessions and provide their guests with links that will bring them into scheduled conferences directly from their Outlook calendar.

Momentum Conferencing Corporation, based in Vancouver, British Columbia, provides a diverse range of audio, web and video conferencing options to its clients throughout North America and beyond. Each offering is selected based on three criteria: affordability, reliability, and functionality. e/pop meets these criteria, and the unique functionality of webcam-enabled multiparty video made e/pop a natural choice.

"We are constantly monitoring new and evolving conferencing technology offerings, to ensure that we are making the best options available to our Customers," says Steve Niven, President and CEO of Momentum Conferencing Corporation. "We have used e/pop for several months and we are impressed not only with its price and dependability, but also - and even more importantly - with the fluid video capabilities it brings to business conferencing."

The Momentum assessment also factored in e/pop's longevity in the real-time communications market, customization and integration with Momentum's internal systems, plus automation capabilities that allow all users to communicate regardless of bandwidth and connection speed. This type of automation is essential for a high-quality, fluid conferencing experience where multiple video participants join the conference through a variety of Internet connections.

Unlike competitive video conferencing products, Momentum InMotion does not require customers or conference participants to purchase video multiplexers (MUXes), multi-channel units (MCUs), session border controllers or any other complex equipment. Users simply need a PC and Internet access. The routing technology provided by e/pop software provides network address translator (NAT) and firewall traversal maximizing connection success over existing customer networks.

"We are delighted that Momentum Conferencing Corporation chose to include e/pop in their range of web and video conferencing options," said Steven Peltier, WiredRed's CEO. "We believe that Momentum's consultative approach to the conferencing business complements WiredRed's technology. We are impressed with the knowledge and professionalism of the company's Sales and Client Support staff."

Momentum InMotion is available now, and can be purchased in a variety of configurations, depending on the Customer's situation. Momentum InMotion is hosted by Momentum Conferencing and is purchased on a per seat per month basis. Access is via Momentum's website. Momentum InMotion - Enterprise is also hosted by Momentum, but it is accessed via the Customer's website with branded log-in pages. Momentum InMotion - Enterprise Plus is the self-hosted option, which is the choice of most large corporations and government agencies.
