Yahoo! Implements GIPS Codec for Messenger Video Calling

Release 10 of Yahoo! Messenger implements Global IP Solutions' GIPS VideoEngine to enable new high-quality video calling. Since early 2006, GIPS has provided the underlying voice technology for Yahoo! Messenger, allowing friends, family and colleagues to communicate. Now with the addition of the video calling feature, everyone on Yahoo! Messenger can enjoy video calls enabled by GIPS VideoEngine for superior sound, picture quality and user experience.

"With the launch of Yahoo! Messenger 10, we're allowing people to instantly communicate with friends and family around the world through new interactive and social features like video calls," said Dave Merriwether, senior director of Yahoo! Messenger.
