Brother Unveils Web Conferencing in a Box

June 26, 2013

Even small businesses need web conferencing. But the cost of procuring, and the complexity of maintaining, such a solution often intimidates many small business owners into looking for alternatives.

Offering latest web conferencing technological advances in a single kit, Brother International Corporation has unveiled OmniJoin Web Conferencing in a Box. The new kit consists of an HD webcam, compact USB speakerphone and four months of the OmniJoin basic web conferencing service.

OmniJoin web conferencing has been catering to the market needs as a standalone service until now. The new bundle looks to combine the state of the art cloud-based service along with Brother hardware. According to the company, this bundle is available at an attractive price, making it all the more affordable for small businesses.

OmniJoin web conferencing is armed with features such as boardroom-quality web and video conferencing and advanced collaboration tools. These advanced collaboration tools include cloud storage, whiteboards, customizable views and chat. According to the company, it uses an advanced infrastructure that helps in providing improved video and audio quality.

The solution makes it very easy to share and mark up files. The participants can also play videos with ease as the solution offers simple and effective desktop controls.

“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.”

In 2012, the company introduced the PocketJet 673 mobile printer that offers direct thermal printing solutions. These are compatible with only iPhone and iPad mobile devices.
