Whipsaw Inc, the Silicon Valley-based Industrial Design and Engineering firm that creates innovative products for companies around the globe, joins its client Highfive in announcing the launch of their revolutionary all-in-one video conferencing device that brings a breath of fresh air to the world of business communications.
With a bold vision to help co-workers connect more easily through video and grow closer as a team, Highfive enlisted Whipsaw as their industrial design partner to create a brilliant device that combines high quality audio, video, and fast screen sharing, with functional and aesthetic design as well as an unprecedented ease of use. Eliminating outdated, cumbersome and disappointing video conferencing technologies, simply walk into the room and use your laptop, tablet or smartphone to use the device. Highfive is offered at an incredibly affordable price so companies can ensure availability to their teams everywhere.
“We think it’s the first major technology breakthrough for the conference room since the speakerphone,” states Shan Sinha, co-founder and CEO of Highfive.
Highfive reflects a new paradigm in the way we communicate at work, in its powerful function as well as its minimalistic aesthetic appearance and its precision-machined aluminum housing. Whipsaw and Highfive already won several prestigious product design awards including IDSA’s International Design Excellence Awards (IDEA) in the US, and the Good Design Awards (G-Mark) in Japan.
