Sorenson Communications Announces Newest Videophone for Deaf Callers -- the ntouch VP2

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - Dec 1, 2016) - Sorenson Communications, LLC, the company that revolutionized communication for people who are Deaf, announces its newest innovation: the ntouch® VP2 videophone. With updated technology, the new videophone offers Deaf callers a host of new features, including 1080 high-definition video quality, an even brighter LightRing® with customizable colors and Group Call, which allows a caller to include up to four people in one videophone call. As with all previous Sorenson videophones, the new ntouch VP2 was specifically designed for use by Deaf people. 

In addition to a sleek new design and a simplified remote control, the ntouch VP2 includes:

  • An auto-focus camera for even better video clarity
  • Wi-Fi capability
  • Integrated Bluetooth®
  • A new look and feel with a redesigned user interface
  • Screensaver options

"We are pleased to introduce the much-anticipated ntouch VP2," notes Scott K. Sorensen, CEO of Sorenson Communications. "With the Deaf community's feedback, our engineers re-imagined the videophone using the most current technology to provide the best-possible Video Relay Service experience for our valued Sorenson customers."

Ann Marie Oester, an ntouch VP2 beta tester, says, "I like all of the features of the new VP, especially the new remote control and auto-focus. I like the Wi-Fi and being able to connect where I am. The Bluetooth keyboard lets me share text with the interpreter. With Group Call, everyone can talk together -- friends from Pennsylvania, Texas, Florida and Kansas. It doesn't matter where we are, we can all see each other. I really like that! And I appreciate Sorenson incorporating features based on my and other customers' comments."

Sorenson will unveil the ntouch VP2 tonight at a launch event near Gallaudet University, the world's premier university for people who are Deaf.
