CounterPath Enhances its eyeBeam SIP Video Softphone

CounterPath Solutions introduced a new version of its "eyeBeam" SIP-based video softphone. eyeBeam 1.5 now supports superior video and audio codecs such as H.264 and Broadcom's BV32. It also includes new QoS and security capabilities that are built into the core application. These include the ability to automatically prioritize packets during both video and voice calls and new security features such as signalling encryption via Transport Layer Security (TLS) as well as message authentication and confidentiality via Secure Real-time Transport Protocol (SRTP) streams to secure the voice and video connections.

CounterPath said its softphone delivers "zero- touch" configuration for audio and video devices, such as headsets or web cams, enabling automatic configuration each time eyeBeam is started and whenever devices are changed.

eyeBeam 1.5 is currently available in Windows. Mac, Linux and Pocket PC versions will be available in Q2 2006.
