Over the years Ultravid has anticipated and responded to the changes and needs of the growing pay per view video chat industry. In 2000 alliance with business partner GroupV was formed to develop future products under both the new Firecracker Associates name and the established Ultravid name. Add to this the fact that the company has been active not only in the software development arena, but in many other areas of the industry also. This has given Ultravid a unique advantage at developing extremely usefull tools and features due to years of practical "on the ground" experience.
Others may claim "years of experience", can they prove it? We can! Check out this 1996 cnet.com article that mentions Ultravid.
