BOSTON, Aug. 20, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LogMeIn, Inc. (Nasdaq:LOGM) has unveiled the first in a series of new capabilities that extend the collaborative benefits of join.me beyond online meetings through LogMeIn's secure cloud file sync and sharing app, Cubby. First up is cloud-based recording and sharing of any join.me online or audio meeting. The new features offer a simple, secure way to capture and share real-time collaboration sessions, either as a follow-up for participants or as a means of sharing the meeting's content with a broader audience.
The new cloud recording and sharing comes standard with a subscription of join.me pro, the premium edition of join.me, and is immediately available for join.me meetings hosted from the web or via join.me PC and Mac desktop apps. It will also be available for meetings hosted on the iPad, as well, through an imminent update to the popular join.me iPad app. New users and/or users of the join.me free basic version can try the capabilities for free at https://join.me/trypro.
"Since its debut in 2010, join.me has evolved from a widely renowned screen sharing utility to become a world-class meeting app. Having great meetings is critical, but the reality is that the best collaboration can happen at any time, and in any setting," said Lou Orfanos, Senior Director of Collaboration Products for LogMeIn. "We believe the new cloud recording and sharing capabilities represent a key step in LogMeIn's collaboration strategy to make join.me an indispensable collaboration app for the modern cloud-powered workplace."
Join.me cloud recording and sharing is designed to be as simple as join.me itself: a meeting host can simply click a "record" button, which captures both screen and audio content. All recorded join.me meetings are quickly stored in a "Cubby", accessible via join.me or via Cubby using a single sign-on, and can be shared via a web link or by inviting others into the Cubby. Users are given 5GB of free Cubby storage for their recordings, which can house hundreds of hours of content.
Join.me recordings, which take advantage of the open standard .webm format, can be played directly from the join.me site, or natively in Chrome and Firefox browsers. They can also be played in a variety of common media players, or in other browsers, through a simple plug-in.
