The platforms for making video calls that today enjoy good popularity, share similarities in terms of the structure of their platforms. In most cases, it is easy to switch from one service to another, without the need to do much exploring to master it.
Tilde, a platform for video conferencing and collaborative work, allows, thanks to subtle differences, to take advantage of an online workspace more efficiently. Among other striking functions that this free service incorporates, the possibility of parallel screen sharing, more than one participant at a time, stands out.
Video calls on a collaborative canvas
Unlike the characteristic mosaic that divides the participants of a standard telematics meeting on the screen, Tilde offers meeting rooms with a freer structure.
With a maximum capacity of 20 participants, a canvas is enabled on which each member’s window can be dragged and resized, who can participate with or without their camera enabled.
The dynamic proposed by this platform is to occupy how much screen extension is necessary to distribute not only the live image of those who are inside a room, but also the content that is shared there.
Tilde incorporates a number of accessories such as collaborative notepads, sticky notes and drawing boards. It also has a tool called Huddles, which allows private and group conversations to be held, something very useful when a team is divided into groups to solve certain tasks.
You can share YouTube videos for group viewing and share links as widgets. Similarly, it is possible to upload all kinds of files, as long as they do not exceed 30 MB in size. If multimedia content is loaded through this route, such as videos, audio files or images, these will appear with their respective preview within the panel.
In addition to all this, Tilde addresses a weak point in its competition: the possibility of more than one user sharing their screen in parallel. It might not seem like a very urgent need for those who feel that today’s massively used tools meet their requirements. However, teams dedicated to development, design, marketing and even educational environments, could take advantage of this tool.
Sessions through this platform are persistent. This last condition implies that the content shared there is permanently stored, which allows a work session to be resumed afterwards.
The service is free and operates only through the web. According to their creators, they are already working on a solution for mobiles. To create a session, just go to Tilde website and generate a link to share.
