Pexip Adds Videoconferencing for iOS Devices

Pexip's new app allows users to launch videoconferencing sessions on iOS devices.A company that enables schools to collaborate online through virtual meetings has launched a new mobile app designed to let users connect through their iOS-powered devices. Pexip Infinity video conferencing software provides video, voice and presentation sharing. Two institutional users of Pexip applications are Indiana State University and Australia's Charles Sturt University.

The company is now introducing a mobile virtual meeting room client for Apple iOS devices. The new Infinity Connect Mobile client lets users connect via video; if bandwidth is low or poor, they can link in via audio-only. The mobile app lets people initiate ad hoc meetings and invite, add and disconnect users and mute and unmute participants. A calendar integration feature lets users connect to a scheduled meeting with one click. The new mobile app will appear soon in the iTunes store.

Pexip said it would be making a software development kit available to allow developers to customize the look of the app for their users to aid in adoption.

Indiana State adopted the software in spring 2014 to create a video infrastructure that students could get onto quickly to gain access to lectures and share presentations.

Pexip works across multiple platforms, including Microsoft Lync and Skype. The company said an Android version would also be available soon.
