All-New Infinity Connect Mobile Adds Video and Audio Capabilities to Create Complete Handheld Virtual Meeting Room Experience
June 4, 2015, Oslo, Norway — Pexip®, a leading innovator in scalable, distributed videoconferencing software, extends its Infinity Connect Suite by introducing a mobile Virtual Meeting Room client for Apple iOS devices. The Infinity Connect Mobile client complements the company’s comprehensive client offering for all Web browsers and desktop operating systems — providing users with an incredibly easy-to-use tool to collaborate face to face via their mobile devices.
Pexip’s new Infinity Connect Mobile client provides users with the full Virtual Meeting Room experience by providing video, audio, and presentation viewing capabilities, and adds a range of basic conference management options. Designed to be extremely easy to use, Infinity Connect Mobile lets users quickly and simply connect using video or — in areas with low bandwidth or poor reception — conduct audio-only meetings over cellular networks or Wi-Fi. Infinity Connect Mobile allows users to quickly initiate ad-hoc meetings and invite, add, or disconnect users, mute and unmute participants, and much more, allowing them to fully engage in today’s modern activity-based workplace.
A key user benefit of the Infinity Connect Mobile client is its direct calendar integration — enabling users to connect to scheduled meetings and conferences with a single-click. It also enables quick and easy escalation to full audio or video participation as needed and when appropriate. Calendar entries with meeting URLs automatically generate this functionality.
“Some of our customers have requested that we add an Infinity Connect Mobile client to provide the full Virtual Meeting Room meeting and collaboration experience from their personal devices,” said Simen Teigre, Pexip CEO and Co-founder. “The Infinity Connect Mobile client supports our vision to provide any user, anywhere, anytime with easy-to-use collaboration tools — supporting users’ behaviors and the way they already work, and providing the simple, full experience ad-hoc meeting from anywhere. This is fully aligned with our customers’ desires.”
Pexip will make available an advanced client software development kit (SDK) to simply enable a full custom branding and app development environment. As with Pexip’s existing Infinity Connect clients for other platforms, enterprises and customers can quickly and easily apply their own themes, looks, and branding concepts to create an extended collaboration experience that promotes adaption and widespread usage among their employees.
The all-new Infinity Connect Mobile can be seen, tested, and tried at booth 2391 at InfoComm 2015 from June 17-19 in Orlando, Florida. It is free to download and will be available from the Apple App Store shortly.
