Filtering live video calls overview
In this era of distance and hybrid learning, video conferencing tools like Meet and Zoom are a powerful way to keep students connected to their teachers and classmates. However, they have also opened up schools to new challenges in keeping kids safe online–if you haven't experienced it in the last year, we're sure you know someone who has been "Zoom bombed".
Hāpara Filter's real-time video analysis technology can identify indecent material from webcam videos and screen sharing, to minimize the disruption of "Zoom bombings" and similar incidents.
Hāpara Filter supports video conference platforms running through internet browsers. It will not support the desktop/mobile apps.
- Google Meet is supported when running inside browsers on supported devices (e.g. Chromebooks, Windows with Hāpara Filter proxy agent).
- Zoom is supported when running on the Chrome browser as a web client on Chromebooks.
The Zoom app on Chromebooks and other devices is not supported.
