Highfive

HighFive is great if you fit their use case, which is basically a Mac or Windows user that wants to conference 2-3 locations together and have a lot of bandwidth. If you don't fit that exactly, HighFive is much less ideal. For example, if you have any Linux users, HighFive won't work at all for them. Also, if you want more capabilities beyond the basics, HighFive doesn't give you much.

Cons

  • It's very laggy, often buffering during screen-share and video playback is dreadful.
  • Sometimes calls are dropped, which can be frustrating.

Alternatives Considered

Highfive appears to perform best for internal communications within the enterprise, where users adopt and use a dedicated platform. Integration with Outlook is a welcome feature. Other applications seem to have more penetration in the market, or are better known in the collaboration space. They tend to be well suited for collaboration with teams or groups outside of the organization, using commodity cameras and mics for the most part. Highfive optimizes their gear for performance.

Return on Investment

  • Deployment is possible with minimal (or none) dedicated computer gear
  • It can use the display's audio system, eliminating the need of a room sound system
  • It leverages the built-in telecom infrastructure
