SightSpeed is a provider of quality, rich and easy to use Internet video communications services for both businesses and consumers. SightSpeed services include: multi-party video conferencing, integrated video mail, rich and innovative voice and text features (both outbound & inbound calling).
SightSpeed based in Berkele, California, is a privately held company funded by The Roda Group. The investor’s known also for launching Ask Jeeves and PolyServe. Aiming to capture a wider market of users, the company is going to announce a Linux-version of its video chat later this week.
This would certainly help the company as the Linux app is aimed at the fast-growing NetBooks category, better known as mini-notebooks. It should be noted here that Linux is the preferred OS for NetBooks. This video chat client is supposed to run with SightSpeed software on other OS platforms as well.
News is that Dell is going to mix it up on its new Mini 9 device, for both versions: Windows XP and Linux. Dell already offers SightSpeed by the name of ‘Dell Video Chat’. NetBooks are not as powerful as regular computers, just because of the fact that they have cheaper components in them, hence, SightSpeed has optimized the software for NetBooks as well.
