Rabbit Shares First Look at Groundbreaking Application for Video Chat and Content Sharing

SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- A new company that has developed disruptive technology to transform the way we communicate online, Rabbit today emerged from stealth with initial details of its groundbreaking video chat and content sharing application, available as a closed beta in Q1 of 2013.

Rabbit is the first platform to change video chat from a mere utility to a fun, intuitive and meaningful way to interact with others online. Rabbit is the first and only application that allows you to watch videos, listen to music and share any type of content together. The platform also sets a new industry standard by allowing you to chat just with friends or with an unlimited number of people - including public or private conversations.

Rabbit was founded by four videogame pioneers who saw a need in the market for a new approach to online communications: one that allows synchronous, real-time video chat and sharing of content with small or large groups. They saw that the first generation of video chat applications allowed for small numbers of people to talk together with a limited ability to share content, and there was room to push this to a whole new level by combining current internet infrastructure with cutting-edge gaming, social and VOIP frameworks. And by also applying the principles of massively multiplayer online gaming (MMOGs) and new innovations in product design, the end result is a quantum leap in video chat and social networking.

Rabbit is the brainchild of four gaming and music industry veterans: -- Philippe Clavel - former CTO of a video game startup and Technical Director at Sony Online Entertainment and Hands-On Mobile, Clavel is one of the leading technical minds in MMOGs, specializing in developing architectures to support multiplayer titles with multiple millions of users.

-- Gregory Fischbach - a seasoned entrepreneur and early-stage investor, Fischbach is the former founder and CEO of Acclaim Entertainment and was President of RCA Records International and President of Activision International.

-- Stephanie Morgan - former Studio Director at Hands-On Mobile and producer/designer at ngmoco:), Morgan is a 10-year veteran in game and application development with multiple award-winning social applications in the market.

-- Nicholas Reichenbach - an established entertainment software publisher who's brought over 300+ apps and entertainment products to market over the past 15 years, Reichenbach is the Chairman of Guestdriven and was the EVP of publishing at Magmic Games.

"It's time to shake-up how we communicate together online. While video chat tools enable live interaction, they aren't social. Social networks give us new connections, conversations and discoveries, but they're not live," said Stephanie Morgan, co-founder of Rabbit. "With Rabbit, we're using what we learned developing some of the world's most successful social games to revolutionize video chat. The result is a product that is radically different than anything available on the market today." To get a first look at the application, please visit www.letsrabbit.com.

About Rabbit Rabbit revolutionizes video chat: watch movies and TV shows with your friends, listen to music together, chat with an unlimited number of people, and even meet new ones -- all in a single application.

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

Featured Whitepapers

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
