Goober Networks, announced the release of goober 3.0 as a public beta today. goober 3.0 is a completely new collaboration solution that includes multi-protocol instant messaging, HD Voice to landlines and cell phones and 6-way video conferencing calls to PCs including Windows and Macintosh.

Although the beta version only offers 4-way video conferencing, the final public release of goober 3.0 will support a record-setting 6-way video conferencing capability.

Global IP Solutions, the leading provider of HD voice and video processing solutions, will power goober's HD VoIP calling and video conferencing with its award-leading GIPS VoiceEngineand GIPS VideoEngine.

'We're extremely pleased that goober Networks has selected GIPS' HD voice and video to support their unified communications offering,' said Global IP Solutions (News - Alert)' Chief Marketing Officer Joyce Kim. 'Goober now delivers first-class HD voice quality from 8-16 kilohertz and is able to support video conferencing resolutions from 720 to full HD, enabling end users to communicate on multiple IP devices with great service.'

Goober 3.0 is compatible with today's 100 million VoIP subscribers worldwide, the 1.6 billion people projected to use IM services by 2012 and the projected 1.9 billion email users by 2013, plus the growing population of social networking and instant messaging sites, such as Facebook (News - Alert), Twitter, GoogleTalk, Jabber, ICQ, MSN, QQ, Yahoo and AOL. 

'Goober Chat offers multiple protocol messaging features, allowing friends to join chats, even if they're using other messengers besides goober, such as ICQ, MSN, GoogleTalk, Jabber, AOL (News - Alert), Yahoo! and QQ - no other UC provider offers this cross-platform chat capability and we're excited to be the first to bring this capability to the market, so people can simplify their communications from one location,' said goober Networks' CEO Peter Uhlich. 

Goober 3.0 delivers HD VoIP calling across multiple PCs, including Windows and Macintosh, and the iPhone (News - Alert) and iPad with gooberVoIP, which works over Wi-Fi and 3G networks.

It alsoincludes advanced services that give consumers and businesses a stable, quality IP communications experience, and Internet Service Providers (cable, ISPs, telco and mobile) a complete UC solution as a value-add to their subscribers, with white-label branding. No additional hardware is required by the service provider or the end user, and the software-only client can be downloaded for free.

'Goober 3.0 is the perfect solution for anyone who is looking for ways to easily stay connected; they can publish, connect and share content and voice and video communications anytime, anywhere,' Uhlich said.

The first 5000 people to download goober 3.0 beta will receive a $5 USD free voucher upon request via the website.  Goober's flat rates are versatile and flexible, offering an average per-minute price that's 25-50 percent less expensive than any other VoIP provider, with calls in the US and Canada at a record low cost of $.01 USD per minute, and allowing mobile users to avoid any charges on their mobile carrier's phone bill.
