What is SmartVP?

SmartVP is Purple’s latest innovation in video relay service (VRS) technology. SmartVP is an easy-to-use, deaf-friendly videophone that enhances communication between the deaf and hard-of hearing community with hearing family, friends and professionals. The skilled American Sign Language (ASL) interpreters at Purple help create a stress-free communication experience for everyone on the call.

What SmartVP users say

    I have signed up with my Purple number with Weather Alert Services and good enough my SmartVP rang went off with a powerful flasher that woke me up from living room to my bedroom at 3am in the morning! There were a tornado warning in that area and I am very thankful for SmartVP! My wish list for SmartVP would be wake up call timer feature.

    Hey everyone, I’ve had my SmartVP for a while. WOW!! Every week it gets better and better. The staff at Purple is wonderful and for first time, I am having fun with my videophone! Sam who is a manager at Purple is right, once I got my SmartVP, it made me forget I even had SVRS.

    What’s cool about Purple is that you can use your computer to add your friends to your contact book, then the contact book will show on all other devices, like your smartphone, laptop, computer, iPad, SmartVP.
