VideoLink World is a New Online Community of H.323 Videoconferencing Users that Provides a Simple Way to Locate Other Internet Users for Video Conferencing

ALISO VIEJO, CA -- Smith Micro Software, Inc. (Nasdaq: SMSI), today announced the release of its new VideoLink® Pro for the Mac, the only standards-based videoconferencing solution available for the Mac. This unique product utilizes H.323 standards to allow users to not only connect to other Mac users, but also to Windows users who are running H.323 standards-based videoconferencing products. In addition to enhancing our product's performance, support for H.261 video compression was added to allow greater compatibility with other videoconferencing systems.

VideoLink® World is a free Internet service. VideoLink World allows users to meet and collaborate on-line. The website allows users to create public or private meeting rooms, and registered users can be called by simply clicking on their name. VideoLink World even allows users of other H.323 products to join the fun. You can visit VideoLink World at

The product's best performance is showcased in high-speed network environment especially in the education communities. In addition, Apple's recent announcement of faster processors-800 & 867MHZ machine class, position VideoLink Pro to compete with hardware-based videoconferencing products costing hundreds of dollars more.

"We have focused considerable effort in fine tuning and improving VideoLink Pro performance and ease of use to find other users online through VideoLink World," said Robert Elliott, General Manager, Mac Division of Smith Micro Software. "We believe VideoLink Pro is both a high quality and affordable solution that allows Mac users everywhere to bring personal communications and interaction to the Mac."
