Video communication software is an industry stuck in the mud! Teamtalk.io is a little group of entrepreneurs trying to prod a sleeping beast into action.

using old, clunky video meeting solutions is like being in a stale relationship

Teamtalk.io has launched a new video-conferencing platform to push the needle and finally make video-calls high quality and efficient. And here's why.

Compare mobile phones from 10 years ago to mobile phones now. Now compare Skype. It is hard to argue that Video Conferencing has really developed in the last 10 years, at least on the surface. Teamtalk.io are a little group of start-up guys who had had enough and needed a proper Skype alternative.

Sure, businesses who have huge amounts of expendable cash can throw it at BlueJeans or some such meeting room app. Getting charged an arm and a leg to have the 'luxury' of not having a video-call drop more times than a hot potato. But what about everyone else?

SMEs, freelancers, and vertical industries that video-calling apps. support: what do they do? Do they just settle for the ever so familiar, weekly pre-call nerves they get when they have to play bandwidth-roulette with Skype, or Hangouts?

For most, using old, clunky video meeting solutions is like being in stale relationship. No one particularly wants to be in it, neither side makes an effort to change anything, but it's convenient and it's familiar!

One would hope that, as 2017 nears, the bare minimum video communication apps can offer is a stable connection, and simple access for free. But even that is inexplicably too big an ask.

So what does a chargeless Video-platform need?

As for usability it needs streaming quality, reliability, one-click meeting access across different browsers and no plug-ins.

As for efficiency it should have audio record/playback, a faultless screenshare app, checklists and timers to keep things on point.

It's not rocket-science, it is just trying to move an industry forward which has been a sleeping-giant for way too long. TeamTalk.io are the little guys trying to do it and hopefully some goliaths will get the memo and follow.
