Built-In Video Calling

Expedite collaboration and boost production with crystal clear, no-lag video calling. Maintain face-to-face engagement regardless of physical location. Call a single colleague or schedule a group call with confidence that your voice and face are in unison.

Why is Peer-to-Peer Video Calling More Consistent?

Popular video calling systems like Skype & Google Hangouts use a server to relay your video back and forth between users. This in-between server typically causes a lag or delay in the conversation. With Align Us P2P Video Calling, your computer communicates directly with the recipient’s computer with no server in-between. This eliminates the delay ensuring meaningful and flowing conversation just like a same-room, face-to-face conversation.

Why did we create a better video calling system?

We created the Align Us Video Calling out of necessity. Align Us experienced the common frustration with server-based conferencing software first hand. We tried many systems like Skype, Google Hangouts, and a few others. No matter the system, we experienced inconsistency. At one point we used two different systems one system to project on a computer and one a for audio. Our remote members suffered by the missed & inconsistent communication… So we decided to change video calling.
