MURRAY HILL, N.J., May 18, 2011 - Glowpoint Inc. (OTCBB: GLOW), a leading global provider of cloud managed video services, today announced that Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC), has named Glowpoint's Virtual Video Room (VVR) as a recipient of the 2011 NGN Leadership Award presented by its publication, NGN Magazine.

The VVR is literally a virtual "meet me" room for ad-hoc multi-point video conferencing, hosted from Glowpoint's cloud, eliminating the need for on premise video infrastructure and providing customers with a path to adopt video quickly and easily. Users simply dial into the VVR from their network or the internet with toll free and URI dialing numbers, using private participant codes to ensure security and privacy for every meeting. The managed service offering supports the widest range of high definition SIP, H.323 and ISDN based video endpoints, including immersive telepresence, conference room, and desktop systems.

"We are proud to accept this prestigious award, as it serves to recognize our efforts in developing the next generation of video conferencing and telepresence services that make collaboration scalable and open to all video users," said Anil Balani, Glowpoint's senior vice president, product and strategy. "More businesses are looking for ways to extend video use beyond their internal environments and achieve wider adoption. Our VVR is designed to eliminate the barriers to video collaboration by supporting virtually all video technologies, from desktop to telepresence and is reachable by any type of connection from private MPLS to public internet."

The Third Annual NGN Leadership Award has recognized the growth, evolution and distinction between the applications and services designed for next generation networks and the enabling technologies that make them possible.

Glowpoint has been recognized for their exceptional work in advancing NGN services and technologies. VVR has proven it is exceptional and its innovation has contributed to the transformation of the industry," stated Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. "Congratulations to the entire team at Glowpoint and I look forward to more innovation in the coming year."

VVR customers can make secure business to business (B2B) video calls using Glowpoint's market leading B2B exchange services, eliminating the challenges of disparate network peering, firewall traversal and security. The VVR also supports audio only participants and includes flexible billing packages so customers can purchase minutes or unlimited usage plans.

The 2011 NGN Leadership Award winners can be found in the May 2011 issue of NGN Magazine. For more information, please visit
