SingTel Launches Asia's Largest Video Chatting Forum on TokBox Platform

20-Party Video Chat Service Integrated With YouTube, Flickr and SlideShare

SAN FRANCISCO, CA and SINGAPORE--(Marketwire - Aug 11, 2011) - TokBox, the leading web-based video communications platform, today announced that SingTel's Media Share, a video chat and file sharing service is built on TokBox's proprietary technology. Media Share is a feature of SingTel's exPress Portal service for fibre broadband. Amdocs (NYSE: DOX) was the prime systems integrator for the project.

Media Share lets SingTel's customers video chat while sharing YouTube videos, Flickr photos and Slideshare presentations. Up to 20 friends can simultaneously view and engage in conversation without requiring any download -- they just need a computer and a webcam.

The SingTel Media Share enables people to come together, share, enjoy web content and chat at the same time.

Ian Small, TokBox CEO said: "As the first major service provider to embrace web-based video chat, SingTel's launch of Media Share signals video communications' entry into the mainstream. SingTel was very particular in its selection of a carrier grade solution, and we are delighted to help bring this breakthrough service to Singaporeans and the world."

The TokBox Video Platform is the only solution enabling anyone to add live video-based interaction into any web property. With an advanced API and plug-n-play apps for web and mobile, more than 13,000 organizations, developers and website owners have used TokBox to harness the power of real-time communications to drive user engagement within their site or service.

The project adds to the innovative services SingTel offers consumers. The SingTel portal was launched recently on the Amdocs Personalized Portal software to offer subscribers a personalized, centralized location for all their online content and interactions.

If you are a SingTel subscriber, you can access Media Share on the exPress Portal at https://express.singtel.com.
