Star Trek has arrived!Written by Daniel Webb
March 1, 2005 – Over 30 billion emails are sent daily worldwide, and online communication are expected to double in next few years. However, future of online communications is already here. Today, video can add human touch of emotions, gestures, personality and more to otherwise gray matter of text email. Mr. Daniel Webb of Youngstown, Ohio has positioned himself in front of this expanding and evolving marketplace for masses which are predicted to use video communications within next 3 to 5 years.
The domestic markets in both U.S. and Canada are exploding with this new technology, and 20 International markets are expected to open throughout 2005. Tapping into worldwide expansion with this marketplace is a win-win situation.
Mr. Webb, could be on to something, according to Dustun Rosdail, President of Rosdail Associates. "If I can communicate face to face with my friends and clients, that's a valuable tool. Email has deteriorated quality of customer service. It used to be all face to face. People want 'face time.' This kind of technology can help that. This helps humanize communication again," he said. Mr. Webb added, "In a marketplace where change occurs at light speed we must capitalize on true ground floor opportunities. The key is to be ahead of curve, and video is a logical progression for communications industry. If people are sending photos by email, I can see video being next step.” As a result of over six years and $55 million of research and development, Mr. Webb can offer most sophisticated, simple-to-use and feature-rich video communications on market as an independent affiliate of a major streaming video solutions provider. The future opportunities are completely untapped with a mission to democratize video communications by providing everyone with power to create and distribute streaming video content directly from any camera-enabled PC at lowest possible cost. The services include video email, LIVE video broadcasting, video-on-demand, video autoresponders, video chat / video instant messaging, video blogging and much more.
