Highfive unveils $799-priced new device --- an HD system for conference rooms

San Francisco-based startup Highfive unveiled its first product on Tuesday --- a new $799-priced device which the company claims can unfold a hassle-free teleconferencing experience for users.

According to the details shared by Highfive, the company's slim new aluminum-cased device not only brings video to the conference room via flat-panel displays, but also enables the users to instantly move video feeds from such displays onto handheld devices, like iPhones, iPads, and Android devices.

As such, the device unveiled by Highfive essentially gives the users the convenience of a smartphone video-chat app, while also providing them the more inclusive experience of a dedicated conference-room video system --- unfolding a high-definition system for conference rooms, at a cost which small businesses can easily afford.

The Highfive device includes a 1080p HD camera and a noise-canceling mic array. The device can be mounted on the wall, plugged into a flat-panel display, and connected to the Internet, so as to tie it into an online video conferencing service built and operated by Highfive. For navigating the service, an app has to be installed by users on their mobile devices.

Revealing that the Highfive device boasts the capability to eliminate infuriating PIN codes and confusion over how to get phones and video screens working, Highfive CEO Shan Sinha said that connecting the device to a TV takes barely 2 minutes.
