Voxeet, a VoIP Web conferencing software app, has become the grand prize winner in the Voice App Igniter Challenge run by Bandwidth’s inetwork, a provider of innovative and scalable voice, 9-1-1 and SMS solutions.
Developed to discover the next disruptive voice and messaging application, Voxeet is a natural conferencing technology that offers high-definition audio, high speaker recognition and high mobility.
Voxeet will receive up to $600,000 in IP communications services from inetwork and can offer investment to support its efforts to replace outdated, traditional audio conferencing solutions with its breakthrough natural conferencing app.
This challenge supports Voxeet's goal of becoming a ubiquitous, universal application. The IP communications services from Bandwidth's inetwork will help Voxeet extend its technology to support access from landlines and cell phones to completely replace old-style audio conferencing.
“We have spent years on tireless research and development to create a web conferencing solution that is truly different from everything else on the market today. The awarded services from The Voice App Igniter Challenge speeds our time-to-market and validates all of our hard work,” said Stéphane Giraudie, CEO and founder, Voxeet, in a statement. “Bandwidth’s inetwork will help propel us the next level and make Voxeet ubiquitous, while helping millions of people enjoy natural conversations – dramatically improving their collaboration experiences.”
Voxeet has developed an affordable, business-quality teleconference service that delivers crystal-clear sound, simultaneous conversations and visual and audio cues to identify who is talking on a call. The company has boldly entered a competitive, crowded and mature market and offers one of the first comprehensive alternatives to teleconference giants such as GoToMeeting and WebEx.
Steve Leonard, executive vice president and general manager of Bandwidth’s inetwork division said, “Since our founding, we have helped some of the biggest names in telecom, such as Skype, Google, Pinger (News - Alert) and Marchex get their voice and messaging applications off the ground, but we’re still blown away by the high-caliber submissions we received, with our awarded services, Voxeet will undoubtedly disrupt the Web conferencing market and change the perception of virtual meetings.”
With one account, Voxeet is also available across all of your devices, including iPhone (News - Alert) and Androids. The mobile version includes 3D immersive sound and visual cues. For example, one can put the decision maker’s picture on the right. When she speaks, you will hear her voice coming from your right side, and see visual cue that she’s talking. With the Voxeet apps, participants can switch between devices without interrupting the call, while participating in its immersive conference calls.Want to learn more about the latest in communications and technology?
