Brother Announces 'Web Conferencing in a Box,' Helping Businesses Easily Host Meetings, Collaborate and Communicate

OmniJoin™ Web Conferencing in a Box Combines High Quality Brother Hardware and Services at an Affordable Price

BRIDGEWATER, NJ--(Marketwired - Jun 25, 2013) - Brother International Corporation, a leader in small business technology, has announced the launch of its OmniJoin™ Web Conferencing in a Box (item #WCB400). The new offering bundles an HD webcam, compact USB speakerphone and four months of OmniJoin™ basic web conferencing service in a comprehensive kit1.

OmniJoin™ web conferencing has been available since June 2012 as a standalone service, facilitating meetings in the telehealth, education and general business markets. This new bundle marries this advanced cloud-based service with high quality Brother hardware, at an affordable price. The combination offers customers a powerful meeting experience:

  • Feels like a 'face-to-face' meeting with synched audio and video, HD image quality and high-fidelity sound
  • Clearer communication with noise reduction, echo cancellation and multi-party VoIP
  • Seamless post-meeting sharing through cloud recording and storage capabilities
  • Peace of mind with secure, encrypted communication, to protect business assets whether meeting in the office or remotely

"Our proven track record of providing businesses with high quality, affordable printers and scanners has positioned us well to expand into the collaboration services market," said Bill Henderson, Vice President of Brother International Corporation. "Brother understands how our customers conduct business, and by offering web-based collaboration through the OmniJoin service, coupled with high quality hardware, we are ultimately helping to improve efficiency, productivity, and the quality of their business interactions."

OmniJoin™ web conferencing offers boardroom-quality web and video conferencing and advanced collaboration tools, like screen sharing, cloud storage, whiteboards, customizable views and chat. The OmniJoin advanced infrastructure ensures all web meetings occur in the 'closest cloud,' resulting in a vast improvement in video quality over many other similar services.
