BARCELONA, SPAIN – 08. December, 2016 – Digital Samba, SL announced today that it has released version 5.0.5 of OnSync: its award-winning, all-in-one web conferencing solution for sales presentations, webinars, training sessions, or any other invitation-only or company-wide communications event.

Unlike conventional web conferencing tools that are limited by inefficient codecs and bandwidth constraints, and that require complex and costly on-premise installations, OnSync is completely browser-based, cross-platform and mobile. Users simply enter a private online meeting room to enjoy a professional-grade, high quality video and audio experience.

Like its predecessor version 5.0 that launched in mid-2016, the new version of OnSync 5.0.5 offers major new improvements, including the switch to a new telephony provider for better performance, and extended PSM (Phonesync Middleware) capabilities for integration with additional telephony services. Key new and enhanced features include the capacity to:

  • Upload customized photos, which are displayed to participants when they sign-up for a webinar or other event via the registration page.
  • Schedule recurring OnSync sessions, which are ideal for regular team meetings, training classes, etc.
  • Control meeting rooms with a floating panel, while simultaneously sharing the screen and interacting with participants via chat.
  • Choose what codecs are being shared and set session quality levels, which optimizes OnSync in extreme bandwidth scenarios.
  • Download poll results as a .CSV file to create impressive graphs, tables and charts, or make an API call to integrate the results with other apps and systems in the environment.
  • Collect more data by asking participants to provide their email address before logging into a session, which helps organizers target them with post-session assets such as a recording, special offers, etc.
  • Publish sessions to a publicly-accessible page, so that participants can more conveniently sign-up.
  • Privately answer a participant’s questions through an improved Q&A synclet, and edit or delete messages in chat.
  • Toggle the desired time format (24h or 12h) and date format (DD-MM-YYYY or MM-DD-YYYY).

In addition, OnSync 5.0.5 features several usability and UX improvements, including the ability for Windows users (like their Mac counterparts) to share high resolution 4K and above screens, a streamlined and less-cluttered conference synclet layout, and support for Hebrew characters in chat along with other non-Latin languages such as Arabic and Cyrillic. Administrators can now also:

  • Control storage levels by limiting the media library file size of any child account.
  • Add live captioning abilities to a session (requires using a caption provider hosted on
  • Recreate or delete dial-in PINs for OnSync cloud customers that are assigned to an account.
