Video calling breakthrough: fring with DVQ™ (Dynamic Video Quality)

Thursday, December 9th, 2010

Mark the day – 12/05/2010. The day fring introduced its proprietary DVQ video calling technology. Now we’ve heard lots of acronyms, but WTH is DVQ video?

According to our geek-tionary: DVQ™ is Dynamic Video Quality.

DVQ technology automatically, and continuously during a call, adjusts your video call quality to match your internet bandwidth at all times, giving you the best video and audio quality possible for your connectivity.

That means that rather than ‘making do’ with a basic, fixed video quality call, you get an optimized video quality that matches your calls’ available bandwidth. In math terms, our dev guys have gone from ‘lowest common denominator’ to best possible– wherever you are’ (Wanna know more? See our technical press release).

DVQ video calling means that you get the optimized call quality no matter if you are commuting to work, driving through a tunnel, or take a call while you step into an elevator.

Watch as Jonathan – a fring iPhone developer – steps into an elevator to demo fring’s DVQ technology.

So- while fring was the 1st to bring you video calls way back in Nov’09, now you and tens of millions of your fringster friends can enjoy fring’s quality-optimized video calls.

Get fring’s DVQ video calling from the App store and the Market.
