Not all meeting rooms are the same — that’s why we make technology for rooms of all shapes and sizes and provide our customers with the tools and features they need to make their meetings great. In this blog, we’re going to focus on the large conference room and boardroom solution.
Five Features to look for in a boardroom video conferencing solution
The components you’re looking for to equip a smaller huddle room might not coincide with your boardroom conference room needs. Boardrooms are meant for those meetings with executives or important clients — so you might need a little more umph to make sure you’re presenting your best self, every time. Here are a handful of features to look for in your boardroom conferencing solution for your highest-profile meetings.
By looking for a tool that is plug-and-play ready, you can eliminate relying on your IT team to get your meeting up and running. With an intuitive solution that’s as smart as its end users, you can communicate and collaborate without your technology getting in the way.
Finding a boardroom video conferencing solution that plays well with third-party devices can be crucial for meetings that involve clients, customers or guest callers that might not be programmed into your cloud. Make sure your solution supports and integrates well with other devices for easy meeting.
Dual Display Capability
Share your presentation and engage with your audience on screen simultaneously for a truly uninterrupted meeting experience. With dual display, not only do you eliminate distractions — you also get the same meeting experience as if you were in the conference room.
When you’re choosing a tool for your conference room, it’s important to look for the best of the best in the market. Invest in a solution that automatically updates, is customizable to support any type of meeting and is high quality enough to last more than a few years.
There’s nothing worse than joining a call and seeing all your colleagues on the other end in ant-size! Find a solution that has zoom capabilities that won’t sacrifice image clarity or distort the screen, so you get the full face-to-face interaction you’d get in a smaller conference room.
