After the first successful Kickstarter campaign in 2016, Solaborate is launching the new and improved Hello 2, together with a bunch of other amazing hardware products.
HELLO 2 transforms any TV into the world’s most powerful communication device for video conferencing, wireless screencasting, screen sharing, digital whiteboarding, Alexa and Google voice assistant, live broadcasting, gaming, TV streaming, and home automation. It will also support the best video conferencing platforms such as Microsoft Teams, Skype for Business, Google Meet and more.
The product is designed together with the Solaborate community to address some of the most annoying video and audio communication issues the industry faces today. It is equipped with 4 far-field beamforming microphones as well as a 4K HDR video sensor and state of the art 6-element lens, working together to ensure the video and audio captured is of the highest quality.
Other products launched include the HELLO Touch TV, which is the smartest and most affordable 4K Touch TV powered by HELLO 2 for real-time digital whiteboarding and video conferencing, allowing virtual teams outside the physical room to collaborate in real-time from any device to bring new ideas to life. The Hello Touch TV might compete directly with the latest collaborative work tool, the Surface Hub 2S by Microsoft arriving in the second quarter of 2019 and the Surface Hub 2X set to debut sometime in 2020.
Another product worth mentioning is the HELLO Rooms Controller app, which designed to start a meeting with one click. It supports both HELLO video app and third-party video apps. HELLO Room Controller can be installed on any Android Tablet. When we look at it, it kinda reminds us of the just recently announced Google Home Hub, minus the hardware.
An open platform to empower everyone!
As part of the open platform, Solaborate is also introducing a HELLO Creator Edition specifically designed for the developer community, so they can build any applications or hardware gadget extensions on top of their open and programmable communication platform. This will offer creators programmable end-to-end encrypted messaging, video and audio calls, via their APIs and SDKs. “We can’t wait to see what kind of gadgets and apps you will create next, because technology becomes more powerful when it empowers everyone,” says Founder and CEO Labinot Bytyqi.
Solaborate seeks to simplify and improve the way we communicate and collaborate by making it affordable for everyone. They are proud to say that HELLO is being used all over the world, connecting people and shortening distances.
HELLO 2 and new products are available now on Kickstarter on October 10th, while end-to-end encrypted HELLO Messenger app can be downloaded on Google Play or App Store. All the backers who supported HELLO on Kickstarter in 2016, will get a full 100% credit of $189 towards HELLO 2 Kickstarter special of $499.
