ReelPortal is an easy-to-use video chat and conference system. ReelPortal is intentionally designed for a future where small, efficient, yet powerful video-capable computing devices are ubiquitous inside every home and office, replacing the traditional telephone. As such, these devices will always be on, and serve as standard communication tools between users, regardless of their physical location.

ReelPortal users can call each other directly via their nicknames, which can be anything of their choosing (given name, phone number, etc). Just like the traditional telephone, there is no need to log in with an account and password to place a call. So how would the callee identify the caller, you may ask. Like the traditional telephone, ReelPortal assumes the callee can identify the caller by voice, and perhaps by their face.

Beyond the calling aspect, ReelPortal users can opt to create a unique private room, where they can invite friends and family to join for a multi-way video conference. Users joining a room need only to know the room name, and room key (if any). Once in, they are automatically connected to everyone in that room. Thus, there is no need to even know the nicks of the participants. Again, the participants are identified by their voice and face. Users may adopt a personal room as their own, where friends and family can join and check whether they are available.

Within the home or office, ReelPortal can also serves as an active, local video intercom system. But with an adequate Internet connection, this system can be extended globally, effortlessly. Starting a conversation would be just a click away. As an intercom system, ReelPortal maintains connections between devices indefinitely, with fault-tolerant logic to detect and retry any broken connection. With this capability, users can move in and out of networks (3G/WiFi) with minimal disruptions.
