Unfortunately in that scenario with two separate domains not connected at all you won't be able to use one account/login.
Thanks

Sadly, the only way is to setup a trust between the two.

The only way to do this is with a domain trust.  Why don't you want to setup a trust?

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Yes.  You can use what is called a Shortcut Trust:  Both domains will need to be in the same forest though.

Actually you can also use an External Trust for the same thing if they are in different forests.
