Traditional video conferencing can make remote colleagues feel like second-class citizens.
Around is designed to be inclusive, so remote team members truly feel like part of the group. By being able to use your own device, everyone is seen and heard clearly — and no one ever sounds “far from the mic.” Everyone stays engaged. No one steals the spotlight.
How much presence is too much? Traditional high‑definition, full‑screen video calls leave you feeling overexposed and exhausted in the harsh light of dull reality. Technology should respect and augment your mood. Around’s signature video modes bathe you in liquid light and amp up the atmosphere to revitalize your sessions and get more done.
Don’t like feeling all those eyes scouring your magnified face? Not everything is better in HD. Around minimizes the video interface to maximize your workspace with an unobtrusive UI that lets you collaborate easily, whether sharing online docs, or sharing your screen.
Our proprietary, AI-based camera framing finds your face even as you move, crops out clutter and other background distractions, and moves you and your team into thought bubbles out of the way to free up screen space.
Nothing brings your train of thought to a grinding halt like a loud bang or passing firetruck. Around recognizes common noises like sirens, barking dogs, washing machines, kitchen activity, and laptop fans, and applies AI-based filtering to suppress them while prioritizing human voice.
Transfer your call with just a click from PC to smartphone, and take your ideas for a walk in the fresh air and sunshine. The sky's the limit for creative thinking when you have no ceiling for ideation.
