Brother Introduces New Webcam and Speakerphone Products To Help Enhance OmniJoin Web Conferencing Service

October 25, 2012 | Telepresence Options
New Products, Combined With OmniJoin Web Conferencing Service, Provide Affordable, Boardroom-Quality Videoconferencing Experience

BRIDGEWATER, N.J., Oct. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Brother International Corporation, a leader in small business technology, today announced the launch of its new NW-1000 webcam and VT-1000 speakerphone. This expansion of hardware, plus the recent launch of the cloud-based OmniJoin Web Conferencing service, marks the arrival of a complete, and affordable, web conference experience from a single company.

The new webcam and speakerphone work with virtually any web conferencing service, but are optimized to work with the OmniJoin Web Conferencing service. They will quickly and easily provide users with crystal clear audio and HD-quality video experience1, all using 'plug-and-play' hardware via universal USB connection. The benefits of this experience include:

  •     Remote workers, small offices or home offices can conduct boardroom-quality web conferences, at a minimal investment
  •     Web conferencing peripherals from a company you already trust to provide quality, reliable office products
  •     Users are able to conduct a web conference almost immediately, no need to arrange complicated, in-person events

"Until now, videoconferencing products for SMBs and home office workers have been cost prohibitive, or have had challenges around compatibility and performance quality," said Bill Henderson, Vice President of Brother International Corporation. "Our products, combined with the OmniJoin� service, represent an ideal marriage of affordable, quality plug-and-play hardware and an online cloud service to assist the small to mid-size business community in their day-to-day work and collaboration."

The VT-1000 Speakerphone allows users to simply connect their desktop, laptop or even smartphone to the device for easy conversion into a high-quality speakerphone. It boasts an omnidirectional microphone for crisp, clear voice communications and includes smart, convenient audio features such as noise reduction, echo cancellation and even presentation sound mode for improved audio fidelity. The VT-1000 Speakerphone is optimized for OmniJoin Web Conferencing service from Brother.

The NW-1000 Webcam offers plug-and-play installation with a simple, compact form factor and universal mount to rest easily on any desktop, notebook or within a conference room. It offers HD image quality video1 with full HD1080 and HD720 video image, as well as wide angle image capture so users can easily see everyone on a conference call. Dual microphones also provide crisp, clear audio performance with high fidelity sound.

The NW-1000 Webcam and VT-1000 Speakerphone are available for purchase today at As with all products, Brother offers toll-free technical phone support for the life of the product.
