MEDIA ADVISORY: Global IP Sound Supplies Voice Processing Software to Skype; Demonstration in Global IP Sound Booth at Fall 2003 VON Conference and Expo

STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN – SEPTEMBER 19, 2003 – Several online news services, including The Wall Street Journal, are reporting on phenomenal new peer-to-peer voice-communications software from Skype <www.skype.com>. Created by the developers of Kazaa, and recently released in Beta form, Skype is dramatically accelerating consumer awareness and adoption of Voice-over-IP (VoIP) around the world.

A contributing factor in Skype’s rapid adoption is the exceptional sound quality of the VoIP calls. This quality is made possible through the use of voice processing software provided by Global IP Sound, the leading supplier of embedded software technologies used to overcome delay, jitter, packet loss, and acoustic and network echo in calls made over the public Internet.

Global IP Sound will be demonstrating Skype in booth #415 at Fall 2003 VON next week in Boston.

Niklas Zennström, chief executive officer and co-founder of Skype says, “Sound quality is critical for user satisfaction in calls made using the Internet, and Global IP Sound’s software suite allows us to offer superior sound quality - better than regular phones. We looked far and wide for the best voice engine to support our application, and Global IP Sound delivers.”
