Veodia Partners With Jive Software and Announces Plug-In

New Plug-In Enables Jive's Product Line With High-Quality Video; Integration to Be Showcased at 2008 Enterprise 2.0 Conference and Launch Pad Session

SAN MATEO, CA and PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwire - June 10, 2008) - Veodia, an agile video service that enhances daily work communications, today announced a partnership with Jive Software, an enterprise collaboration software provider. Veodia will bring its high-quality streaming video capabilities to the company's flagship product, Clearspace, allowing its users to interact more effectively with video-enriched collaboration. The integration will be unveiled on the show floor and at the Launch Pad session during the 2008 Enterprise 2.0 Conference in Boston, June 9 - 12, 2008.

With this partnership, Jive's Clearspace users can collaborate and communicate using high-quality video. Veodia's plug-in will seamlessly integrate into existing workflows, allowing users to create and consume video within Jive's Clearspace product line and enhance postings with video in a matter of moments. The Veodia platform is designed with the enterprise requirements in mind, providing a reliable, secure and scalable service that can be integrated into a variety of business processes.

"Online video is set to revitalize the business environment by bringing people from various groups together and by facilitating true human interactions that have been lost with conventional business practices," said Guillaume Cohen, CEO, Veodia. "By incorporating high quality video into the Clearspace collaboration software, people are freed from their walled gardens. They gain the opportunity to truly engage."

Forrester Research reports that the future office is the "information workplace," a 21st century platform that manages content, messaging, team collaboration, real-time collaboration, and communication among employees using a common platform. Veodia's video capabilities help Jive's user base come closer to achieving this for the workplace.

"Collaboration is personal, and Jive's customers see video as an important part of enriching the conversations they're having with employees, partners and customers," said Matt Tucker, CTO, Jive Software.

Jive's Clearspace customers can start using Veodia's video service in Q3 2008.
