The worldwide pandemic has affected many things, chief among them, the way we work, hang out, and attend school. With many people having to shift to a remote world, video conferencing software is now more popular than ever. With video conferencing becoming a $5.77 billion market in 2020, and a $6.28 billion market in 2021, with those numbers only expected to rise in the coming years, rapid advances are being made in the video conferencing field. That’s where Headroom comes in.
Utilizing artificial intelligence (AI), Headroom provides transcripts of the dialogue in real-time, one-click notes (no more furiously scribbling notes during meetings), enhanced video and audio quality at a lower bandwidth, gesture recognition (the AI recognizes multiple gestures including thumbs up, thumbs down, and raising your hand (which means no more interrupting your boss mid-sentence to ask a question or voice your opinion)).
Headroom also has real-time sharing of speaking time by participant, and video recordings and replays stored in the cloud. Best of all, the transcripts and notes are searchable for convenience.
Not only could Headroom make your next meeting more efficient, it could also provide improved accessibility to the hearing impaired by creating transcripts of the call in real-time. This feature is not typical in the video conferencing software space, and although Cisco Webex has real-time translation in over 100 languages, many still fail in that arena.
One of Headroom’s most appealing points is that it is completely free to use.
CEO and Co-Founder, Julian Green said he helped build Headroom from the ground up, to save us all from the “video conferencing hell” that we have all been in for the last two years. Green is an ex-Google engineer, who spent part of his career managing deep tech moonshots and launching computer vision products like Cloud Vision API.
Co-founder Andrew Rabinovich, prior to having co-founded Headroom, spent five years at MagicLeap, where he was the Head of AI. With so much talent at the helm of the company, it is easy to see Headroom becoming a smashing success.
