Instant Secure and Anonymous One-to-One Video-Conferencing Across Devices with Gruveo

Instant Secure and Anonymous One-to-One Video-Conferencing Across Devices with Gruveo | Online Collaboration Tools |
Robin Good's insight:

Gruveo is a secure and free web app which allows you to easily start a video-conference session with anyone without needing to register, download, install or login anything. 

To start a video session you simply input a numeric code (of three or more digits) of your choice on the Gruveo home page and then communicate that code to anyone you want to video call. That's it. Your computer and the other device will automatically create a direct connection allowing your video conversation to start instantly.

An excellent solution for instant video calls that require zero set-up time and which may benefit from secure encrypted communication and anonymity.

Instantaneous Push-To-Talk Video Chat: QuicklyChat

Instantaneous Push-To-Talk Video Chat: QuicklyChat | Online Collaboration Tools |

Robin Good: QuicklyChat is a new real-time collaboration downloadable software for PCs and Macs (Linux coming) which allows you to easily video chat with your teammates.

Key characterizing trait for Quicklychat is its ability to auto-signal to your contacts whether you are effectively busy or not (depending on what you are actually doing on your computer - this is configurable) and to connect to any of your contacts in one-second time.

From the official site: "The biggest difference between QuicklyChat and conventional video communication is that QuicklyChat auto-answers incoming calls when the recipient is available.

Incoming connections are displayed in an unobtrusive notification window, so you can keep working if you're in the middle of an important thought, without having to think about how to respond to an incoming call."

Free to use.

Free One-to-One HD Videoconferencing on your TV: The Biscotti TV Phone

A cookie-shaped, easy-to-use, $199 video-conferencing solution that you pay for once and then use forever.


Introduced last month at the Consumer Electronics Association’s annual New York-based CES Unveiled preview event (CES 2012 kicks off on Jan. 9 in Las Vegas), the Biscotti TV Phone is a home video-conferencing gadget that works with your HDTV.

Each biscotti-cookie-shaped unit cost $199 and works with any other unit via Biscotti’s proprietary network. You can also chat with anyone on GChat (sorry, no Skype).

Biscotti is not the first HDTV video conferencing solution. Most notably, Cisco (with UMI) and Google and Logitech (with Google TV and the Revue) have made the leap. 

The device connects to your HDTV via an HDMI cable. Unlike most other HD devices, Biscotti actually has you run your cable box connection through the device. So the back sports both HDMI-in and HDMI-out ports. Biscotti conducts the video calls over the Internet, which means you’ll need Wi-Fi to use it—there’s no wired, Ethernet option.

Video resolution is at 720p, and the videocamera is equipped with a wide-angle lens (you can digitally zoom and pan, as well).

Simplicity could help Biscotti succeed where others have failed this holiday season. To be fair, the Logitech review camera is cheaper (by $50), but you have to buy Logitech’s Google TV box to use it. Cisco’s UMI is $100 more for a 720p device and you have to pay for the UMI service: $9.95 a month or $99 a year.

N.B.: Biscotti is pay once, use forever—or at least as long as Biscotti lasts.
