Sightspeed gets a foothold!

We absolutely love the Voice/Video/IM product from Sightspeed as it's quick, clear, supports multiple webcams with a variety of resolutions and best of all it's SIP based.  And now we hear that Dell is bundling a 'branded' version of Sightspeed on all it's new PCs and Laptops.  It's called Dell Video Chat.

Link to the site is here to download the client for your PC - Dell or not!


I suppose it's worth asking the question why Dell chose Sightspeed over Skype?  Maybe the folks at Sightspeed were so flexible in delivering a 'branded' and customized product that met Dells needs that Skype couldn't compete - Maybe Dell didn't even ask them?.  It will also be interesting to see if any more manufacturers go along this path.

  • A completely redesigned and streamlined Dell user interface
  • Free, unlimited video chat worldwide
  • Free, unlimited voice chat worldwide
