Animation Technologies Inc. (8060,Taiwan), a pioneer in developing
industry-first video multimedia solutions sold under the LifeView brand,
recently introduced their latest product, the SkyChat VoIP box. The LifeView
SkyChat allows any home phone to connect to both regular phone lines and the
Skype network, allowing users to place and receive calls over the internet with
their home phone. Calling over the internet no longer means sitting in front of
a PC screen – SkyChat makes net calls as simple as regular ones. Users simply
pick up their phone and dial their Skype contact’s speed dial number and the
SkyChat handles the rest. Calls are clear, with the SkyChat using built-in echo-cancelling
to ensure crisp audio quality. Any home phone can be used – users with wireless
phones can make calls from anywhere in their house. Call waiting features allow
for easy switching between normal phone calls and Skype calls, and both lines
can be joined for 3-way conferencing. Phones with caller ID can even display the
contact name of incoming Skype calls.

Where the SkyChat really shines, however, is by its ingenious combining of a
normal phone line, the Skype network and a PC. This allows it to perform
advanced functions such as call forwarding, which allows forwarding of Skype
calls to a mobile phone or any other phone number, or forwarding of all regular
phone calls to a Skype contact. This allows users to keep in touch with their
Skype contacts while mobile, as well as letting users receive all their home
phone calls while at work or away. It can act as an answering machine for both
regular and Skype calls, complete with remote access via an interactive voice
response system. Toll bypass calling allows users to make calls over the Skype
network from any phone by calling the SkyChat unit. This can be paired with the
SkypeOut service for substantially discounted long distance and international
phone calls that can be made from any mobile phone.

The SkyChat will be available globally in March through regional distributors
and will have a suggested retail price of $ 69 USD, giving customers an
affordable product with superior functionality.
