You can videoconference like never before with Hello

HELLO - The Most Advanced Video Communication Device
Say Hello to your television, and to the rest of your house while you’re at it. Meet Hello, branded as an all-in-one, 4K TV communication platform that connects to any television set and allows you to control your smart home or office devices with your voice. You’ll be able to take part in video conferencing, wireless screen sharing, live broadcasting, security surveillance with motion detection, and more, all by way of a single device. So if your home is also your office, Hello may just be the solution you’ve been looking for.

Engineered with four microphones, a 4K video sensor, and quad-core processor, this is a high-end videoconferencing system without the high-end price. With its built-in accelerometer, tilting, and 130 degree lens of vision, you really don’t have to be in the same room as your colleagues to have an effective meeting anymore.

While other hardware certainly exists to help you teleconference, the Hello team noted that the videoconferencing space is largely dominated by big players like Cisco or Polycom, who charge quite the pretty penny for their technology.

“We didn’t see anything else better on the market and decided to create it ourselves,” said Hello founder and CEO, Labinot Bytyqi. “Hello is for the people, at an affordable price point — built for modern businesses, professionals, freelancers, and creators. It cuts out the cost of networked conferencing hardware and IT services to install and maintain it. We’re truly bringing professional-grade video conferencing to everyone, anywhere, on any device.”

And in today’s work-from-home office mentality, telecommuting capabilities are clearly in high demand. Already, Hello has raised nearly $300,000, almost 10 times its original goal, and there remain five days in the team’s campaign.

So if you’re looking for a new smart videoconferencing system at a price that won’t break the bank, you can preorder your own Hello for $189.
