RICHARDSON, Texas October 17, 2006 –- damaka™, a fast-growing communication and collaboration software company, launches IP Television. This service enables damaka users from anywhere in the world to watch TV via the Internet. BBC, ESPN, CNN, and NASA are among the channels available for damaka users. IPTV is a new addition to the software’s existing features list, which includes instant messaging, DialOut™, video conferencing, desktop sharing, file transfer, and Internet radio. damaka also plans to roll-out video-on-demand (TV channels and media content), subscription services, customization of video services, and video-based target advertisement.
According to Andrew Lippman, Head of the MIT Media Lab’s Viral Communications program, “Personal, global television has been a dream since the advent of the PC; damaka has just made it a reality. With high quality, multi-channel IPTV at your fingertips, both consumers and the new media creative community have an easy-to-use new delivery option. Now a kid in Sumatra can watch American, Chinese, and British television without having to even buy a television.”
With the integration of IPTV to its existing product suite, damaka now allows carriers, service providers, and media companies to cost-effectively deliver Internet Television and multimedia services to consumers. damaka’s approach to integrating IPTV functionality into its SIP based, peer-to-peer Personal Softswitch™ aligns with the requirements that many carriers have for out-of-the-box triple play solution to increase revenue and enhance customer retention.
damaka’s latest release with IPTV is available for free download from the company website. After logging into damaka and selecting a television channel, the user can watch online news, entertainment, sports and music. While running IPTV, a user can still make phone calls and send instant messages via the damaka software.
