Club 555 Online Dating (http://www.club-555.com), a Club 555 Networks Inc. venture, embraces the increase in broadband subscribership with revolutionary web-based voice and video communications.

There are other sites who offer video; however, some are plagued with firewall and NAT issues. Club 555's video system is browser-based so there is nothing to install, you just click to connect. You can hear and see the other person before you say yes

Club 555 Online Dating (http://www.club-555.com), brings online matchmaking to new heights featuring web-based video conferencing and multi-voice chat rooms for their members. The web based communication tools enable on-site contact with the highest level of security and anonymity available to online personals users.

Club 555 maintains that internet users, especially online dating users and gamers, are growing very sophisticated in their use of online tools. "We didn't want to tie ourselves to one type of on-site contact that's why we believe in our business model...offer several voice and video tools for our members and let them choose which they want to use," says Steve Gallinger, CTO of Club 555 Networks Inc. The system allows only "on-site" contact unless the members elect to permit more than that. Each profile has security built into every aspect of contact. Club 555's "favorites" list allows a member to give permission to who they want to view their private pictures, listen to their introductory audio clip, view their introductory video clip or contact them directly with the integrated voice and video communication tools. In addition, there are controls within the member's panel to completely "block" all site-based messages from members they don't want contact from.

Club 555 has an unbelievable voice chat model. It was built on the principle that a lot of people are intimidated by talking to strangers for the first time. The idea was to provide an open voice chat system where everyone can talk at the same time just like you would at a party or at the kitchen table. The voice chat system is a true open microphone without the "push-to-talk" that other systems offer. You simply login and start talking. In addition, the voice and video systems are integrated into the site allowing one-to-one private conversations.

We operate an upstart online dating service. Within the dating site we have a video application that works flawlessly even on dial-up connections. The application is web-based and no software installation is required. The video system functions with the same privacy considerations that are built into the other aspects of the website. "There are other sites who offer video; however, some are plagued with firewall and NAT issues. Club 555's video system is browser-based so there is nothing to install, you just click to connect. You can hear and see the other person before you say yes," says C. Joe Eichler, CEO of Club 555 Networks Inc.
