Grandstream GXV3140 Overview

The Grandstream GXV3140 is the latest release from Grandstream’s video telecommunications line, and is quite an upgrade to the previously released GXV3000 series.  The GXV3140 is the first dual stack desktop multimedia phone from any manufacturer to be compatible with both native Skype and SIP open standards for free voice and video calling.  Its feature set is designed to allow the user to keep in visual contact with colleagues, family and friends by offering free two-way or three-way video calling along with real-time instant access to a variety of web and popular social multimedia applications.

As Grandstream puts it:  “We are extremely happy to share with our worldwide customers that Grandstream’s GXV3140 is the first desktop multimedia phone to be compatible with both Skype and SIP open standards for free voice and video calling.  What this means is consumers and enterprise customers can use Skype to send and receive free video calls between their computers, mobile devices and Grandstream’s GXV3140.”  This is very exciting stuff for the ever-increasing video telecommunications market.
