Setting up video conferences is made simple with Highfive.

Highfive video conferencing is, “a reimagined meeting room experience built for organizations with multiple offices and remote workers, partners and customers,” says Chris Heinemann, Highfive’s senior director of corporate marketing. 

Highfive’s premium service is equipped with a 4k HDR Dolby Camera and a high-fidelity audio microphone powered by Dolby Voice. With a CPU built into the camera, setup is easy and requires customers to place the camera on top of the television or on a wall mount.  
Setup takes less than 15 minutes, and joining a meeting is even easier with no downloads, PINS, or 1-800 numbers required.  

“IT teams love Highfive’s uniquely modern hardware-as-a-service model that combines meeting room hardware and software that’s inexpensive, easy to deploy and requires nearly zero maintenance and support,” Heinemann says. 

The system comes with screen sharing capabilities, intelligent scene framing, dual-screen functionality, and SIP interoperability to join meetings hosted by other service providers.

For professional speakers, engaging with an audience can begin months before stepping out onto the stage. 

Their first audience interaction might come through a teaser video in an event promotion email, says professional speaker and author David Fisher. Or they might also begin cross promoting the event on social media, according to Rich Gibbons, president of SpeakInc., a company that books event speakers and headline entertainers.

 

“You talk. We draw. It’s awesome.” That’s the motto of Ink Factory, a live visual note-taking company in Chicago. The company literally brings meeting notes to life during events by illustrating key points from a company’s keynote speaker, discussion or meeting. Visuals help engage audiences, employees and clients so they can better remember and identify with a business’ mission. As the speaker talks, Ink Factory’s artists draw, and the result is a summary of the discussion in innovative text and visuals.

 

Corporate meetings just got a whole lot healthier thanks to KitcheNet, a Chicago-based company delivering fresh produce to corporate clients to promote employee wellness.

Founded in 2017 by Trista Li, KitcheNet offers services for corporate offices, meetings, snack breaks, retreats and more, allowing clients the option of healthy eating during the work day.
