CounterPath Converges Voice, Messaging And Now Video Into A Single Mobile Application

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Jan. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  CounterPath Corporation (TSX-V: CCV) (OTCBB: CPAH) will debut live video calling across its range of Bria mobile softphone applications at this year's ShowStoppers event (booth F17) on Tuesday evening Jan. 10 during the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.  The company's converged application delivers on an industry's promise to consumers and businesses that want a single, unified communications service that goes beyond basic voice and messaging features. 

The new video calling feature will be included across CounterPath's entire suite of Bria mobile softphone applications including Bria iPhone, iPad and Android editions. CounterPath plans to have the video calling feature for Bria iPhone/iPod Touch edition available globally this month, with the iPad and Android editions to quickly follow in February. 

"In a world where social networking and real-time, anytime, anywhere communication has become the norm, mobile video use continues to outpace all other features.  We believe 2012 is finally the year where video calling transitions from the 'whatever app' to the 'got to have it app,'" said Todd Carothers, SVP of Marketing and Products at CounterPath.

"Mobile devices are getting more powerful processors, connecting over faster networks and running more content-rich applications than a year ago. People are using these various applications available to them that result in a fragmented user experience," Carothers continued.  "Video calling, like voice calling and texting, is the next logical step in the evolution to a single application and platform that is network and device agnostic.  Landline or mobile phone, desktop or tablet computer – no technical or geographical boundaries should exist when communicating. Our entire Bria softphone suite complements that."

While video calling has been available from others, CounterPath's Bria softphone application goes beyond offers from competitors. Based on the SIP and H.264 standards, Bria mobile seamlessly combines voice, instant messaging and presence, and now video into a single application that can be easily and quickly downloaded to a mobile device. By adding video to Bria mobile for smartphones and tablets seamlessly interacting with the video capabilities on CounterPath's existing desktop and web softphones, video is now truly available to more people, anyplace, across any network and on many more devices.
