Universal Instant Messenger lets users share rich media with anyone, instantly.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
TORONTO, CANADA - May 25, 2008 – Qnext today released a new version of its popular unified communication and sharing suite that lets users communicate and share digital media as easily and instantly as they can send and receive messages. Qnext addresses the needs of millions of consumers and business users that want to consolidate their contacts, instantly and securely communicate and share digital content with anyone in real-time directly from their computer, no uploads to external services.
Qnext’s communication capabilities include 8-way VoIP, 4-way video conferencing and a multi-protocol instant messenger that supports Yahoo!, AIM, ICQ, Jabber, Google Talk, iChat, IRC, and MSN, together with drag and drop file transfer of any size, group text chat, remote PC access and shared applications. In addition, Qnext allows instant sharing of an unlimited number of files, documents, presentations, videos, photos, and music streaming to anyone – even if the recipient does not have Qnext installed.
More than one billion users use instant messaging and many find themselves juggling contact lists on more than one messenger network, and using multiple programs and external services to share content. Qnext consolidates user contacts in one place and also provides communication and sharing all within one application, resulting in improved efficiency and greater user experience.
“Since communication has gone real-time, it stands to reason that our media should as well,” said Oren Asher, Qnext CEO. “When enhancing our daily interactions with media-sharing, we don’t want to be limited to the small subset of our content that we’ve uploaded somewhere on the Internet. Rather than talk about the pictures from the party, we want to let you see them as we talk, or give you access to view or download them at a later time.”
Qnext comes packed with uniquely designed services for music, photos, and files. Streamed music is displayed in a familiar player interface and organized by artist, album, genre, and playlist. Photos can be viewed as thumbnails or zoomed, downloaded in original resolution and format, (with permission) or be run in a slideshow. Files and folders can be browsed and downloaded individually or in a batch (with permission). In addition group text chat can be attached to any of the shared content for discussion. Users have complete control on when, which and how a content can be shared, no worrying about file sizes, upload times, or what network or software the recipient is on.
Qnext is now available as a FREE download from the company website for Windows, Mac, and Linux. A version of Qnext for mobile and other services that specifically address certain segments of the business market will be available in Q4, 2008.
