Ojo Video Phone to have interoperability with other video phones and software clients
WorldGate Communications, Inc. has worked to update its Ojo Video Phone, adding the capability to interoperate with various video phones and soft clients using third party communications protocols and video and audio codecs.

Specifically, Ojo will be able to communicate with video phones using H.263 and G729 video and audio codecs and will be able to utilize the H.323 communications protocol. This added functionality also provides the ability for video phone calls to be made between an Ojo and PCs with webcam capabilities and appropriate software.

Adding the ability for Ojo to make phone calls to these other video phones as well as the growing base of PC webcams expands Ojo’s attractiveness as a video phone capable of communicating with a wide array of broadband devices on the market today.

This capability will be available to service providers that deploy Ojo as part of their overall service offerings. SNAP VRS, a subsidiary of Aequus technologies, will be the first company to implement the interoperability capability of the Ojo in March. This enables hearing impaired customers to use their existing video phones to call the SNAP VRS and allows rapid deployment of the Ojo videophone to this market.

Ojo is distributed in New Zealand through Telecom New Zealand, who commented "this is an exciting development. It is only available in the US presently but we’ll be working hard to ensure the technology can be utilised by New Zealanders in the near future".
