Orbis Robotics Inc. to Incorporate IOCOM's Award-Winning Software in Telepresence Robot Line

Orbis Robotics to Offer Visimeet Software to Current and Future Customers

CHICAGO, IL --(Marketwired - March 11, 2014) - IOCOM, a leading provider of universal video conferencing solutions, today announced that Orbis Robotics will be incorporating Visimeet software into their telepresence robots. In addition to incorporating Visimeet into their line of robots, Orbis Robotics will supply Visimeet to current and future customers.

"Orbis Robotics is an innovator in engineering telepresence robots," said Dan Marchetto, Vice President of Business Development for IOCOM. "They have proven their expertise in the intercontinental robotics industry and are currently in use in remote factories so that managers and engineers can collaborate with local operations personnel without having to travel. We are excited to extend the reach of Visimeet via Orbis' line of robots."

According to Orbis Robotics Inc. CEO Steve Gray, "The key to remote wireless control of a robotic vehicle within a factory environment is that the operator (who can be located on the other side of the world) must have real time, high quality video. Our customers will benefit from the Visimeet video conferencing solution that offers high speed video/audio transmission even on weak broadband connections. In addition, Visimeet's ability to transmit two video streams from one source allows us to simultaneously display the video feed from two separate cameras on our robot, one for viewing straight ahead and one for obstacle avoidance. With a telepresence robot on the factory floor, engineers and managers can collaborate by sharing documents on our 21 inch monitor and by conferencing in suppliers and consultants efficiently and effectively without the time and costs associated with travel."

Visimeet software enables users to be virtually anywhere at any time and to engage with people through audio, video, and data share tools. Orbis' telepresence robots allow Visimeet to be mobile. Meetings can occur at the area in manufacturing where the problems exist, so that onsite management and remote engineers can see, hear, and engage to solve design and manufacturing problems. This marriage of expertly engineered robots and superior video conferencing software make Orbis Robotics an unmatched telepresence robot provider.
