Orb Networks has announced the release of Orb VideoMail for users of Mozilla Thunderbird and Microsoft Outlook.
The software frees video-based communication through email from the constraints of file sizes and file formats, allowing users to communicate through video mail from the email applications they use every day.
The Orb application running on the user's always-connected PC streams the videomails that are authored within the Thunderbird or Outlook plugin on any PC and then securely transferred in the background from the plugin to the user's Orb PC.
Videomails stream to recipients in the right media formats, bitrates, and screen resolutions for the devices on which they open the videomails. Any device with a streaming Windows Media Player, RealPlayer, Winamp Player, 3GP Player, or Macromedia Flash Player can play an Orb videomail, including mobile phones on any carrier network.
