Small business technology manufacturer Brother International Corporation today launched two new products, the NW-1000 webcam and VT-1000 speakerphone. It's no coincidence that the release of these conferencing products follows shortly after the launch of the cloud-based OmniJoin Web Conferencing service, according to the company, as together they create a complete and affordable Web conference experience.
The NW-1000 and VT-1000 both work with pretty much any Web conferencing service, but are optimized specifically for use with OmniJoin. Indeed, with OmniJoin, they offer quick and easy setup of clear, high quality audio and HD-quality video, with USB connectivity for plug-and-play installation. As such, these products are ideal for remote workers as well as small and home offices.
"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 can connect to any desktop or laptop, as well as most smartphones, easily converting from the source into the device's high quality audio. It features an omni-directional microphone for crisp, clear speech, while smart audio features such as noise reduction, echo cancellation and presentation sound mode offer a superior experience.
The NW-1000 webcam, meanwhile, features a compact form factor and universal mount which, along with its plug-and-play installation, makes it an excellent travel companion. It can capture and send video at a maximum resolution of 1080p, also offering 720p, while wide angle image capture makes it easier to see everyone in a conference call.
Wholly own subsidiary of Brother International Corporation, Brother Mobile Solutions, also recently launched a new product, the PocketJet 673 mobile printer, which offers direct thermal printing and is compatible with iOS devices.
