    "We currently have over a million consumers using our voice over IP (VoIP), ipTV streaming video and other services globally," said Greg Parker, President of Raketu. "We wanted to give them a single interface where they could interface directly to all their voice over IP (VoIP) calling, IM/SMS exchanges, and ipTV streaming video viewing in a single application/service, while creating a global chat area where friends, family, and other Raketu service subscribers could have real-time interaction around the streaming video programs they are watching."

Raketu Technical Features

Through Raketu's new LaunchPad interface, users are able to watch ipTV streaming video and VOD content from around the world while interacting with each other through Raketu's voice over IP (VoIP) and other peer-to-peer (p2p) communications services, from a single integrated application.

Raketu uses a unique peer-to-peer (p2p) technology, which allows the highest quality VoIP calling and the highest VoIP call-completion without the security issues associated with supernodes and other traditional VoIP services/p2p technologies.

Anyone on the Internet with a Windows PC and a headset can start using Raketu's VoIP, ipTV streaming video, and other services immediately.

All VoIP calls to locations in these countries are free regardless of where the VoIP calls originate.

Raketu offers streaming video ipTV content from Media Global Intertainment (MGI), which includes exclusive content seen on the syndicated hit TV music video program Fearless Music (http://www.fearlessmusic.tv) and NamcheTV (http://www.namche.cz), a sports/adventure channel from the Czech Republic. Raketu's VOD content includes pay-for Sports, Horror, Extreme Wrestling, Brazilian Models, Soccer Highlights, Extreme Sports Brazil, Medical Minutes, and other entertainment.
