An system to enhance the interaction for video conference

Nowadays, video conference is more and more widely used in our daily work, due to distributed working mode and cross-site corporation. Usually, participants in different sites don't know each other. Especially in video conference, it's hard for participants in different sites to know and interact with each other. People may want to have further communication with someone from another site, but they even don't know who is who and how to contact him. They may want private conversation with someone but they do now know who to ask. Also of course it is not these kind of questions directly on the conference.

For example, in cross sites video meeting, the video window of one site is as below. If people in other sites (or even in the same site) wan to take this chance to know the workmates, teammates and etc, it is hard to recognize who is who. No one to ask, and no one will directly introduce this. Is there an easy and convenient way for us to know each other? What about if there are even more people in the video window?

2. Enable participant to interact with each other easily.

In this system, once the conference video starts, the participants in each site can first add info like name, title for participants in their own sites in the video window. Then the system will sync this information between different sites, it makes things easier for people in different sites to know each other. With this information, it's easy to know who the holder is and who the group leader is, who is the teammates from cross sites and etc. More, once the participate is added with a name, even he/she moves in the window, that tag will be along with him/her. This way to identify people is more reliable and convenient.

Furthermore, once the people are marked with names, the system will get access to social database, to match with their social information and link to the conference video for others to quickly refer to.
