CatchEye is an IT spin-off originating at ETH Zurich. We develop algorithms and software to improve communication in video calls. The CatchEye software plugs into existing video call systems like Skype, Hangouts, or Facebook Messenger. It enables eye contact (patent pending) and removes distractions from the video feed. This enhances the video call experience and helps users to build trust and develop more personal relationships over video.
