We believe deeply in human connection. Video Window’s purpose is to create an extension of physical space to ensure workers feel more connected with each other - as if they were sharing the same space. Ultimately our goal is to help teams achieve their highest level of success possible. Transforming how people collaborate and communicate and the relationships they form.

As seen in

Instant communication for offices, common areas and remote workers – hybrid working solved.

Video Window is different, it’s designed specifically for common areas (not traditional video conference meeting rooms). Designed to remove physical boundaries and make you feel as though you are looking through a “magic window” to the other locations. Helping everyone truly feel part of the team and stay in touch - no matter their location or ability to travel.

Remote workers often feel isolated or “unseen”. Our truly mobile hybrid working solution levels the playing field for all workers allowing connection and spontaneous collaboration throughout the day.

The hardware

Video Window Office

Video Window Office for the office common areas can be used on commodity hardware. Or in other words, you don’t need to buy a lot of kit to use it! Here’s what’s we think you’ll need…

Display

For your HQ or Office Common Areas:

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 their “all in one” 27" computer on the wall…

Also, if you don’t have touch screens, you can use a low-cost touch overlay frame to turn any non-touch screen into a touch screen.. wow!

Or even just use a mouse to keep hardware costs super low...

Contact us and we can tell you all about your options

Compute

i7 (or i5) PC with Microsoft Windows 10 or 8.

Or Mac and Linux work too.

The better the processor and memory, the better the HD glory

USB Camera / MIC / Speaker

Any USB or default webcam, mic and speaker peripherals are OK.

The Logitech MeetUp and Poly P15 are favourites of ours due to the 4k camera, mic array and speaker bar.

These are things to look for to ensure great quality video and audio.

Physical Location

Two or more areas you want to connect! There is no limitation on how many locations you need to link. And they can be on different sides of the world or simply between floors/areas of the same building.

Video Window Remote

Video Window Remote for the remote workers home office setups can be used on commodity hardware. Or in other words, you don’t need to buy a lot of kit to use it! Here’s what’s we think you’ll need...

Tablet or Phone

For your remote worker home office setup it is best to use a tablet for Video Window Remote so it is a separate device from your main work computer and you can glance across and use Video Window when you want to without interfering with your work computer productivity tasks and meetings.

Minimum specs…

iOS: Requires iOS 11.0 or later.

Android: Requires Android 8.0 or later.

Camera mic/speaker/processor: The higher quality spec you go for the higher quality you will be shown to the far side. Apple iPad’s generally perform the best here.

Physical size: it's very much up to you on the size of your device. The bigger the better to get that immersive feeling with the office, 10” is ideal.

Stand

To keep your tablet in the correct place, orientation and powered, we recommend purchasing a low cost stand. This will help ensure your colleagues see you correctly on the far side and don't get a nose cam 👃

Here's a good example on Amazon

Optional computer

You can also download Video Window Remote onto a PC, Mac or Linux computer.

If you have a dedicated device you are using for Video Window, this will work perfectly fine.

Using Video Window Remote on your main work computer is possible - but not recommended because if you use other video conferencing applications it will compete for camera/mic/processor resources and might therefore not be the seamless, easy, always there for you app we’ve designed.

Hence we recommend a tablet, phone or separate computer/laptop for Video Window Remote.

Privacy, Privacy, Privacy

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.

Here’s some important privacy and security measures we’ve enforced….

Opt-in Audio
Audio Timer
No Web Guest Access
Privacy Mode

Even though the video is on by default, the audio is 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 having tapped 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 or don't want it to be visible to the other Video Window locations for a moment, you can 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 for you (audio muted of course).
