WorldGate Launches Ojo ProVision Digital Video Service Solutions for Businesses

TREVOSE, PA--(Marketwire - December 14, 2010) - WorldGate (OTCBB: WGAT)

  • Highly Affordable, Turn-key Video Phone Service Brings Extraordinarily High Quality Video Right to the Desk Top
  • Instantaneous Video Collaboration Increases Daily Productivity While Reducing Travel Costs

WorldGate (OTCBB: WGAT), a leading provider of digital voice and video communications services and innovative video phones, today announced it is expanding its Ojo product line with the introduction of the Ojo ProVision digital video service solutions for any size business. The Company also announced that Bausch + Lomb, one of the best-known and most respected healthcare brands in the world, is already enjoying the benefits of the Ojo ProVision solution.

The Ojo ProVision solution is an always-on, turn-key service offering providing the highest quality video phone experience, on-demand, right from the desk top. It operates in secure network environments and behind firewalls, offering a simple overlay service to a business's existing IP network, without any additional equipment or network changes.

"At Bausch + Lomb we pride ourselves as being an early adopter of innovative technology," said Simon Woods, Vice President Global Technologies, Applications and America's IT. "We are excited about the potential of the Ojo video phone as one of the tools to unlock collaboration at Bausch + Lomb. We have deployed Ojo video phones around the world and are very pleased with the results. We are currently evaluating the application of this technology to a broader base of employees," added Woods. "It offers superior performance when compared to PC based video technology with the convenience of being a standalone solution that not only works great in our corporate environment, but is also a fully functional telephony solution for home offices."

The Ojo ProVision brings video communication to the desk top with instant availability enabling collaboration with dispersed work teams, partners and customers. The increases in productivity and travel savings for businesses are immediate.

The Ojo Digital Video Phone incorporates years of research and patented technology to deliver high-quality video at a fraction of the 3 to 5 Mbps of bandwidth required by most video conferencing solutions. The Ojo Digital Video Phone will automatically adapt to any bandwidth environment, requiring as little as 150 Kbps to optimize audio and video call quality, allowing multiple concurrent video calls to be easily handled within a business's existing IP network. 

The Ojo ProVision solution is priced competitively starting at hundreds, not thousands of dollars. The Ojo ProVision is a turn-key solution that includes both the digital video phone and a variety of service options. In addition to the true-to-life video calling experience, each plan includes a full suite of traditional calling features like caller ID, call waiting and 3-way calling. Innovative features like 3-way video conferencing, connecting to a large screen LCD or TV and unlimited Ojo-to-Ojo video calling worldwide are also included.

"Nothing can replace a face to face conversation -- especially in today's business environment where global and distributed workforces are commonplace," said George E. Daddis, CEO of WorldGate Communications. "The Ojo ProVision is redefining the business call and breaking any conventional or preconceived notions about video calling. The days of thinking that video collaboration tools for business means really expensive, poor quality and hard to use are effectively over."

Work smarter with Ojo ProVision. It's a fact - on-demand video calling saves time, reduces travel expenses and improves productivity:

  • Daily collaboration with a distributed global sales force and/or workforce
  • Grow relationships by working face to face with high-touch customers or clients
  • Optimize efficiencies and interface directly with key partners or vendors
  • Enhance the recruiting and interviewing process
