OmniJoin(TM) Technology Brings Boardroom-Quality Web and Video Conferencing to Desktops

June 4, 2012 | William Zimmerman
New Cloud-based OmniJoin(TM) Online Meetings Offer HD Resolution, Advanced Security and Intuitive Interface

BRIDGEWATER, N.J., June 4, 2012 (PR News Wire via MarketWatch) -- Brother International Corporation, a leader in small business technology, today announced the launch of its OmniJoin(TM) web and video conferencing service. The new cloud-based system offers businesses of all sizes a high-quality online meeting experience, with robust, cutting-edge features.

OmniJoin(TM) innovative technologies provide leading-edge video image (up to HD) and audio quality, along with an intuitive interface, to help businesses get together quickly, have enhanced collaboration and potentially save travel time and expense.

"Until now, experiences with web and video conferencing have often been disappointing and frustrating," says Bill Henderson, Vice President of Brother International Corporation. "Due to inconsistent video quality and poorly synched audio, online meetings have not always been acceptable substitutes for in-person meetings. The new OmniJoin(TM) service from Brother changes all that. It offers crystal-clear video quality and seamlessly-synched audio, along with fantastic collaboration tools. Finally, businesses can enjoy productive online meetings that virtually feel like being face-to-face."

In OmniJoin(TM) meetings, teams can interact with, and edit, documents in real time, and can then save the marked-up files for future reference. Secure video meeting recording lets hosts concentrate on the discussions, knowing they can replay the meeting again later. The OmniJoin(TM) service also offers users a secure, encrypted connection and free customer support for the life of their licenses, providing them with peace of mind.

"Despite its advanced features, OmniJoin(TM) web conferencing is surprisingly simple to use," says Henderson. "We designed its user controls - like on all Brother products - to be clear and intuitive. This ease of use, combined with free customer support for the life of your license, makes our OmniJoin(TM) service a smart, worry-free choice for any business."

OmniJoin(TM) Online Meetings web conferencing is available in a variety of plans. The standard, single-host version starts at $49 per month, and allows up to 30 meeting attendees, of which up to 12 can be "video attendees", with live faces shown. OmniJoin(TM) Pro starts at $79 per month, and supports more total attendees and video attendees, perfect for bigger workgroups and departments. Both versions are available in cost-effective annual licenses, which provide twelve months of service for the price of ten*. Brother also offers customizable OmniJoin(TM) Enterprise packages for larger organizations, which offer more flexibility and cost savings, and include toll-free audio plan minutes and a priority support hotline.
