Chatlight was designed by a professional photographer who was frustrated with the way people look on screen via video chat and skype calls. Henry Geddes, the inventor of Chatlight and a professional photographer and production studio owner, saw the main problem immediately when Skype was launched. He noticed that people looked dark and/or blurry when video chatting and that, through a photographer’s eyes, the simple solution was better lighting. Fast forward to 2015 when the first and original Chatlight became ready for millions of consumers everywhere to illuminate their faces and make them look better online.
The Chatlight is available for purchase at chatlight.com where you can also see it featured on CBS Innovation Nation with Mo Rocca. It was also chosen as Grommet product with a launch on March 1st and is available on Amazon as well. The Chatlight was created to solve the problem of video chatters on Skype, Facetime and most recently Periscope and Meerkat. These platforms together have a combined membership of over 450 million active users, not to mention the other video chat, podcasting and vlogging platforms.
Chatlight is proud to have conducted a successful Kickstarter campaign which included over 1,000 enthusiastic and supportive backers who believed in a product that up until now had not even existed. The response to their post Kickstarter survey yielded overwhelming support. In fact, 98% of the initial run responses were positive.
