Highfive Software


 

Highfive is a vendor that creates video conferencing software and in-room video system hardware. Licensing is on a per-room basis, with unlimited users and usage and no named user fees.

Subscriptions to Highfive’s cloud-based services are on an annual basis. Services are priced according to two tiers, with the premium tier allowing for 15 callers per meeting and the basic tier allowing for eight.

Highfive’s software can handle video conferencing, web conferencing and screen sharing. Users have the option to initiate a video conference on a desktop device and then move the call to a TV screen or vice versa.

Participants don’t need PINs to join video calls or conferences—users can simply send them a link. Users can also initiate and manage video calls and Web conferences from Android phones, iPhones and iPads using Highfive’s app.

The Highfive in-room device uses Bluetooth technology to enable wireless projection of conferences to TV screens. It also features an HD camera and a high-fidelity mic.

Great audio for a large room setting. Their microphone made it really easy to hear each person speaking in our boardroom. The camera gave a nice wide-angle view of the room. Costly, but could be worth it for the right business.

Pros

The program is really easy to use, integrates with Google Calendar and Google Chrome, and provides incredible accessibility by providing an app that can be used on any device. Camera quality was superb as well as the audio capturing device. Very good quality for the money.

Cons

The product is tied to the leasing of a camera. We had to tie ourselves to a hard wired product. The product was good, but the camera and set up cost a bit of money. Seems like integrated Google hangout features for us Google for Education users would suffice.

Whether used on laptop, conference room monitor, or smartphone, the experience is the same. Simple interface to connect, to discuss, to present, and even to include participants via audio who do not have highfive video capability.

Pros

Intuitive interface. Requires no manual or training.

We have been using this product for roughly one year. During this time it was been great but more importantly the support is phenomenal. Highfive has had our back at every turn from helping troubleshoot odds and ends to literally training our clients. The product just flat out works and the support is unmatched by any vendor I have dealt with to date. I highly recommend if you haven't already to look into this company.

Pros

It works and it is easy to use. New features are being added too which I don't doubt will make it even better!

Cons

Some minor alterations and support still need to be added to be completely platform agnostic. (IE windows phone support)

Pros

Reliable, great conference room system, great remote / desktop experience.

Highfive brings our remote employees into the room and makes them feel like they are part of the meeting. The on-demand technical support is incredible.

Pros

The immediate live support, easy of use.

Cons

Not necessarily a con but ability to record highfive meetings would be great.

We've been using Highfive units between our locations for about 18 months, and I couldn't be much happier. The hardware (both video and Dolby audio) are incredibly easy to set up and use right out of the box. You really can't beat it for the price!

The highfive experience for us has been great. We utilize the systems,(we currently now have 3), for expanding our distance learning programs throughout 3 counties. The video is clear with little to no latency and the Dolby audio is a must-have addition!

Pros

Zero latency, Dolby audio system, cost, equipment size

Cons

We have to repair the Dolby audio unit every time it isdiconnecterfrom power source to reuse it.
Need to have ability to record through unit (highfive) a session . Rather than third party unit.

Advice to Others

Ability to record (all in one through highfive system )rather than third party unit.

Most of the time, it works great. There are times when there is a poor connection. Those times make it difficult to use when having team meetings with people from different offices. It is nice to be able to see people but also mute and disable the camera. Sometimes if you don't mute when others are talking, there is terrible background noise.

Pros

Ease of use
Ability to disable camera

Cons

When it has poor connections or there is background noise if you don't mute yourself

Great for team meetings

High five have developed a simple easy to use the conferencing system that works every time. With a great interface and simple plugins for mail clients, it's quick to setup and access meetings for people inside and outside the company.

Pros

Simplicity, ease of use.

Cons

Sometimes the hardware will hang and give a purple screen only. Sometimes the person on the other end gets voice feedback, I am not sure how to stop this.

Advice to Others

The software should shut down when the Pc lid is closed. I have seen incidents when people leave meetings and then don't know they are still casting to the screen.

I was introduced to HighFive during my transition into a new company. I had spent countless hours in previous businesses fussing with dongles, cords in walls and other nonsense to effectively display and conference. Within five minutes of being introduced to HighFive., I was able to operate effectively and was impressed with its functionality. I would certainly bring this piece of technology with me wherever my career takes me next.

Pros

How quickly it can be installed and in use, and how friendly the interface is to use.

Cons

Right now the only drawback is some glitching with the launch window, and requiring the user to click leave call instead of closing out the window.

Advice to Others

Nothing else at this time.
