Brother™ Launches OmniJoin™ App for iOS Devices

OmniJoin™ iOS Application Enhances Collaboration for Mobile Users, Allowing Virtually Anytime, Anywhere Access to a Fantastic Web Conferencing Experience

BRIDGEWATER, NJ--(Marketwired - Nov 12, 2013) - Brother International Corporation, a leader in small and mid-sized business technology, today announced the availability of its OmniJoin™ iOS application. Users of the app can experience a seamless web conference, with full host capabilities*, right from their compatible mobile devices. OmniJoin™ web conferencing is a cloud-based web and video conferencing service that can help mid-sized companies and corporate workgroups improve their productivity and collaboration.

The OmniJoin™ mobile app integrates the OmniJoin communication tools with your compatible mobile device. Consumers that conduct video conferences on-the-go require secure connections, HD video and document sharing, and the OmniJoin mobile app delivers these features and more. OmniJoin subscribers are also able to host secure meetings* with anyone since an OmniJoin account is not necessary to attend a meeting. The app also contains the same business-grade security level contained in the full service, ensuring all web, VoIP and video conferencing data is transmitted over encrypted connections, end-to-end.

The OmniJoin iOS application provides users:

  • Video calls with up to 4 users, using OmniJoin Intelligent Video HD technology -- feels like face-to-face
  • Document collaboration through sharing and pointing tools
  • Instant video chats -- no scheduling necessary
  • Easy access to content stored in the OmniJoin Cloud and photos taken by your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch

"Whether you are working from home or on the road, employees today are regularly accessing business information from their mobile devices," said Bill Henderson, Vice President of Brother International Corporation. "Our iOS application empowers people with quick, secure access to data via the OmniJoin cloud, and high quality web conferencing to help improve business collaboration, on the go."

OmniJoin™ 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.

*To schedule or start a meeting with the iOS application, an OmniJoin account is required. Not all features of OmniJoin™ will be available while using the iOS mobile app.
