(OTC:GLOW), a premiere, broadcast-quality, IP-based managed video service provider, announced today it has continued the positive trend the company saw last year with increased demand for its Managed Multi-Point conferencing services. During the first six months of 2008, the Company achieved an increase of approximately 20% in revenues from Multi-Point conferencing services over the same period in 2007.  The Company also announced that in addition to an increase in overall usage by current customers, it has added more than 50 new Multi-Point conferencing customers year-to-date.

"One of our goals has been to drive consistent, year-over-year double-digit growth for our Multi-Point conferencing services. We are pleased that we have accomplished this through the first half of 2008," said Michael Brandofino, Glowpoint's CEO. "Multi-Point conferencing services are also a major component of our Telepresence VNOC services. With the number of
Telepresence rooms under management increasing each month, we expect to see even further growth of our Multi-Point conferencing revenue, as customers require us to connect non-Telepresence rooms into meetings with Telepresence rooms."

Glowpoint offers a full suite of meeting and collaboration services that include managed and on-demand Multi-Point video conferencing, web conferencing streaming services, and live event support and planning services. Glowpoint supports Standard Definition (SD) and High Definition (HD) video, all the major Telepresence solutions and offers on-demand interpretation services for over 100 languages.

Michael Cosgrave, Glowpoint's Conferencing Services Product Manager, said, "The demand for our managed services is increasing almost everyday, especially as costly corporate travel is being reduced and replaced with affordable, efficient and environmentally friendly HD and Telepresence technologies. Glowpoint has always been a leader in adapting to new technology and our customers benefit from our experience and capabilities."

In addition to providing managed Multi-Point conferencing services by using Glowpoint's own video infrastructure, Glowpoint offers a hosted solution, where Glowpoint manages customer owned equipment either on the customer's network or in one of Glowpoint's global points of presence, providing customers with a cost effective option when they want to own the equipment.
