Allows users to join and engage in online meetings
Cisco has unveiled a new business application WebEx Meeting Center for the Apple iPad that allows participants to join and engage in online meetings.
The company said that the WebEx application, available via download from the App Store, will allow participants to engage in meetings by tapping the meeting URL found in the email or calendar invitation.
According to Cisco, WebEx Meeting Center for the iPad provides in-meeting features that take full advantage of the iPad-optimised user experience. Using animation, visual effects, user movements and touch, the new offering allows participants to view shared presentations, applications and desktops.
In addition, WebEx app also allows users to view the meeting participant list, see who’s talking, and chat privately or with all attendees using the chat window on the screen. Users can also access WebEx VoIP audio directly from the iPad or request a call-back on a phone for audio conferencing with data sharing, Cisco said.
Debra Chrapaty, senior vice president and general manager of Cisco Collaboration Software Group, said: This latest innovation continues to showcase Cisco’s ongoing commitment to bringing the value of collaboration to users on their device of choice.
“When a powerful collaboration solution like Cisco WebEx Meeting Center for the iPad is combined with an intuitive and WiFi enabled user experience, businesses and users both win.
