Albors & Alnet’s proprietary Video Remote Interpretation (VRI) service is an innovative, new approach to interpreting. ODI – On-Demand Interpreter – combines the visual aspect of in-person interpretation with the convenience of remote interpretation, providing an efficient and cost-effective solution for clients who require (or prefer) face-to-face communication with the interpreter.

With ODI, connecting to an interpreter is as simple as pushing a button. By opening the application, you can access an interpreter in 30 seconds or less – 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

IU is currently offering ODI for the following languages:


       American Sign Language (ASL)               24 hours a day, 7 days a week       
Arabic 7am to 5pm M-F
Cantonese 8am to 11pm M-F

Technical Specifications

ODI is available for a variety of platforms, including PC, Mac, iPhone4, iPad2, Android Smartphones and Tablets. The video remote interpretation service features high quality audio, a simple user interface, and real-time data sharing and collaboration. In addition, Albors & Alnet offers a WiFi-enabled mobile video cart that can be easily rolled from one location to another. This cloud-based video service eliminates costs associated with new equipment, infrastructure, and specialized IT staff, and because it’s simple to use, there is no special training required.
