INSTANT COMMUNICATION FOR OFFICE COMMON AREAS AND REMOTE WORKERS - A BRAND NEW TECHNOLOGY CATEGORY

Video Window is different, it’s designed specifically for common areas, not meeting rooms. Designed to remove physical boundaries and feel as though you are looking through to the other locations…. hence “Window”

For remote workers too, they often feel isolated and alone. Using their standard computer Video Window gives the remote worker the opportunity to feel present and connected with the office and their remote coworkers throughout the day.

One Button User Interface
Simplicity is essential. No scheduling, No URL’s, No app downloads, No user logins, No addresses to type. Just walk up and press the big button to join the audio. This is instant communication.
Human Connection
In 2012 Google conducted a research project to find out what made the perfect team. They researched 180 teams over 12 months. The outcome of this was that the highest performing teams were not made up of who was best qualified on paper, but that understanding and influencing “group norms” were key to improving a teams performance. For us, we see this is familiarity and why we created Video Window to help teams feel closer together and more productive, every day. Read More
KNOCK KNOCK Who's There?
You may be unmuted, but what if the other site isn't? How do you get their attention?
We thought about this problem in a very human way. So we built a feature that allows you to select any site, then simply tap on the screen and it’ll make a tapping noise through to the other side to get their attention.
Whiteboarding, but different
Collaborative whiteboarding is a must for any touchscreen device, but we wanted to think a bit differently. One thing that irritated us with other solutions is that once you start whiteboard it makes the video feed tiny. We wanted to keep this experience immersive, so like a real window we made our whiteboard transparent so you can still see your colleagues in full-screen goodness.
And sure, you can draw a silly face on someone too if you want.
GD Night , Sleep Tight

You can set Video Window to 24 hours a day 7 days a week if you wish.

But also we like to think responsibly and think about power and bandwidth savings when the device is not visible.
So we created a overnight sleep mode that can be configured by the administrator so it’ll automatically
turn itself on and off at set times.

Don't worry though if a person needs to use the device during an off time, they simply touch the screen and
it’ll come back to life instantly and reconnect ready to use.

PORTRAIT MODE YOU SAY? NO PROBLEM

Video Window works in both Landscape mode and also Portrait mode. If you want to set up Portrait mode it's a simple case of installing the display on its side, adjust your display settings to portrait and the Video Window software will automatically adapt the layout. Yeah, just like magic

Two core use cases

Team to Team Areas
For teams across locations that work closely together (e.g. agile teams) place the Video Window’s in specific teams area of the office to have instant communications, dramatically improving communications speed.
Water Cooler Chats
Place the Video Window’s in general common areas for colleagues around the world to be able to say hi to each other in an instant and feel closer together.
Join external meetings
So we’ve built an external video dialer into Video Window that will allow you to leave window mode and make an external call to an external video conferencing service. 

 The first integration available today is external calling to Zoom meetings. We have plans for Microsoft Teams meetings, Webex meetings and SIP video too in the near future, so watch this space.

Privacy, Privacy, Priacy
Yes, we are very serious about this. We get it, you may be worried that this device is always-on and pointing to a common
area. Heres some important privacy and security measures we’ve enforced….
Even though the video is on by default, the audio off at each location for both microphone and speaker, meaning the only time a site can hear and be heard is when someone is physically standing at the device and have pressed the join audio button.
Also we know, people will unmute, have their conversation and forget to hang up the audio. Don't worry, we’ve got you covered. We have a timer that will automatically disconnect the audio after the set time.
Video Window will only allow other Video Window’s within its group to see each other and all Video Windows are always seen on-screen, no one else can view the video feeds, and yes that even excludes the account administrators.
If you are using the common area for another event and don't want that to be visible to the other Video Window locations you can manually set a privacy timer that will turn off all video/audio in both directions on the device for a set time. Once the time is up, it’ll automatically reconnect (audio muted of course).
The hardware

Video Window for the office can be used on commodity hardware. Here’s what’s recommended that you’ll need...

Display
Compute
USB Camera / MIC / Speaker
Physical Location

Display

Touch display. 65” or 75” is best to feel life sized. But any touch screen is good, some customers like to put Video Window on all in one 27" computer on the wall. Also if you have no touch screens, you can use a low cost touch overlay frame to turn any non-touch screen, into a touch screen, wow. Contact us for recommendations 👊

Compute

i7 (or i5) PC with Microsoft Windows 10 or 8. Or Mac and Linux work too, Chromebox soon. The better the processor and memory, the better the HD glory 😎

USB Camera / MIC / Speaker

Logitech MeetUp is a favorite of ours due to the 4k camera, mic array and speaker bar. Important for great quality video and audio. But any USB or default webcam, mic and speaker peripherals are OK too 👌

Physical Location

Two or more great common areas you want to connect.
FOR THE REMOTE TEAM
Video Window in office to office is fantastic! But the office alone doesn't solve all the communication challenges that organizations are facing with many teams having a mix of people in the office and people Working From Home or WFH 🤘
Working remotely is a great privilege, however often remote employees feel isolated and alone.
Video Window is here to change this.
Using their standard computer Video Window gives the remote worker the opportunity to feel present and connected with the office and their remote co workers throughout the day.

Simply download and install the Video Window app for PC, Mac or Linux, login, define your working hours and you are good to go!

Also we get it. Everyone has a personal life and this is new territory for most global companies. We want you to feel connected, and ‘at the office;’ without exposing yourself and your loved ones to ‘always-on’ video at home. So for remote workers we’ve changed the way video behaves, you start the day with your video feed off, camera feed off and audio off, but you instantly feel connected with your team as you see a live status of the other people and devices in your assigned group.

Then when you are ready to jump on video, it's a simple video toggle switch, which you can turn on and off as you wish throughout the day. Even when you toggle video on, the audio is still off by default so you aren't distracted unnecessarily by other team members' conversations. Giving you the privacy control you need with the ability to “drop in” as suits you.
