Updated: January 06, 2011

VANCOUVER, Sept. 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - CounterPath Corporation (TSX-V: CCV; OTCBB: CPAH), an award-winning provider of desktop and mobile VoIP software solutions, today announced the worldwide availability of X-Lite 4.0, an entry-level voice and video softphone for Mac and Windows PCs. One of the world's most widely used multimedia softphones, X-Lite gives enterprises, government agencies and other professional users an opportunity to trial how a softphone can be a fast, cost-effective way to begin deploying VoIP across their existing laptops and desktops to reduce their communications costs and improve productivity.

Available as a free download, X-Lite 4.0 is based on a year's worth of beta user feedback. It takes many of the popular features from X-Lite 3.0 and adds a completely new user interface that provides the choice of a contact-centric experience, a dialpad-centric experience or a combination of the two.

  • Video and voice calling
  • Call history, call display and message waiting indicator
  • Call-management tools such as redial, hold, mute and speakerphone
  • Managed contacts lists
  • IM and presence using the SIMPLE protocol
  • Automatic detection and configuration of audio devices
  • Acoustic echo cancellation, automatic gain control and voice-activity detection
  • A troubleshooting assistant to help users quickly resolve a variety of issues
  • Auto-complete list when placing calls
  • Support for a wide range of audio codecs to ensure the highest possible call quality
  • 100 percent compliance with RFC 3261, the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) spec that lets endpoints negotiate the types of multimedia services to support during a call
  • STUN and ICE NAT traversal to balance ease of use with network security
  • Support for dual-tone multi-frequency (DTMF) signaling, RFC 2833, inband DTMF and SIP INFO messages, all to ensure full compatibility
  • with both VoIP and legacy analog phone systems.
  • Human Interface Device (HID) support

As one of the most robust and feature-rich free softphones available today, X-Lite 4.0 is an ideal way for enterprises, government agencies and other professional users to start exploring the bottom-line benefits of video, VoIP and presence-based communications," said Robert Brown, Vice President of Marketing, CounterPath. "At a time when businesses large and small are more focused than ever on reducing costs, improving productivity and leveraging their existing PCs, X-Lite 4.0 gives customers a preview of how a cost-effective, easy-to-deploy and low-support softphone application can meet all of those needs immediately. X-Lite 4.0 is designed to be a steppingstone to Bria 3, CounterPath's flagship softphone product. Bria 3 provides a variety of additional, enterprise-grade features such as enhanced security, SMS support, multi-party conferencing and customizability."
