Gatelinx Announces New Multimedia-Enabled Set-Top Box for Video and Voice Communications Over IP

SOUTHERN PINES, N.C. --(Business Wire)-- Sept. 14, 2004 -- Gatelinx Teleview(TM) Delivers Video and Voice Calls via Television

Gatelinx Corporation, a leading provider of innovative IP multimedia technologies, today announced the latest in its line of video and voice communications over IP products, Gatelinx Teleview(TM). Gatelinx Teleview is broadband-based consumer set-top box device that enables high quality video conferencing using a television. Simple to configure and install, Gatelinx Teleview breaks down the technology, hardware and cost barriers that have hindered widespread video and voice conferencing adoption by consumers and businesses. Gatelinx Teleview is the first low-cost appliance that delivers high resolution voice and video capabilities through television to enable "anytime, anywhere" communications.

Gatelinx Teleview makes low-cost and high-quality video and voice communications available to all consumers and businesses by leveraging existing television and broadband technologies. The system connects directly to a television and is able to instantly connect with other Teleview systems or any other Gatelinx-enabled system such as Gatelinx Communicator, Gatelinx's flagship PC software for video, voice and data communications over IP.

"Gatelinx is committed to helping businesses and consumers connect without limits," said Jack C. Irving, Executive Vice President for Gatelinx. "Gatelinx Teleview delivers on the promise of that vision by enabling high quality video and voice calls over IP using any communications device."

Gatelinx has embedded its innovative software into a consumer electronics device, and packaged it with a camera and microphone to deliver the ultimate turnkey solution for high quality audio and video. There are three components of the product: Teleview Video Call Center, Teleview Active Call Screen and Teleview Remote Control. The Video Call Center provides real-time presence and updated status of all contacts, Active Call Screen provides video calls and previews in partial and full screen mode, while the Remote Control perform navigation and doubles as a phone for private conversations. The product uses an XP board embedded with Gatelinx's proprietary software to provide high quality video over standard broadband connections at up to 24 frames per second.

Gatelinx Teleview will be sold by Gatelinx's partners to consumer and businesses as a subscription-based service, with an MSRP of $399 and monthly subscriptions as low as $9.99. Similar to Gatelinx Communicator, the product is fully brandable to enhance a partner's brand value to its customers.
