Vontoo announced today the release of their newest product, Vontoo V2 (Voice Plus Video).

The interactive video offering combines the action of video with the personalization of custom phone messaging. It’s designed for aid marketers while also collecting a permission-based database of users open to receiving future communications.

“We’ve combined two technologies which, separately, are both good, but together they make for a jaw-dropping experience,” said Kim Graham Lee, CEO of Vontoo. ”The unique combination of video and phone is such an unexpected and smart way to engage users and successfully obtain customer opt-ins.”

Vontoo V2 integrates a video message with a recorded phone call.

According to the company, a viewer will be asked to provide basic contact information—name and phone number–before the video begins. As the recipient watches the online video, his name appears on screen and he receives a phone call that appears to be placed by a celebrity personality in the video. In this manner, information is relayed to the recipient in a very entertaining, engaging, and personal way.

Equipped to handle thousands of people simultaneously viewing the video and receiving phone calls, Vontoo V2 is a robust product that synchronizes call status with video cues in a high demand, high capacity, dedicated telephony environment.
