Rocklin, Calif — Purple Communications has launched a new campaign to promote awareness of its free Purple Video Relay Services (Purple VRS).

Purple develops free communications software designed to make communications among deaf and hard-of-hearing people with hearing people easier and more convenient. The Purple VRS service is a versatile and user-friendly platform that works with PCs, Macs, iPhone 4s, iPad 2s, the iPod touch, and Android devices.

To bring more awareness to the service, Purple has created a Web video series that features deaf and hearing actors, Kristin A. Richter, Richard C. Kerrigan, and John Byron Robinson. Each episode explores "day in the life" situations using Purple VRS, highlighting the versatility of Purple products and services.

Director of inside sales Diana Herron commented in the press statement, "Hearing people never have to worry about missing a moment, unlike our customers, who, before Purple, couldn’t just pick up their cell phone or use an iPad 2 in the middle of the grocery store and call home because they forgot which salad dressing to buy. These are things hearing people take for granted. Purple doesn’t."

A sample of the video campaign is below:


Purple also provides on-site interpreting services, video remote interpreting (VRI), and other text and video relay services.
