An increasing number of employees are working remotely, whether this is on the go or from home, removing them from the traditional workplace. Alongside this is a need to maintain a high-level of contact with key people and clients. It may not always be possible (or environmentally friendly) to have everyone together in the same room whilst meetings take place, but video conferencing is making it possible to have the closest equivalent experience. Zoom Rooms are seamlessly tackling three of the biggest issues associated with the conference room – starting a meeting, booking a meeting, and sharing content.
What Is Zoom?
Zoom is a cloud platform that enables easy video, phone, content sharing, and chat runs across mobile devices, desktops, telephones, and room systems. Their mission is to provide a people-centric cloud service that transforms the real-time collaboration experience and improves the quality and effectiveness of communications forever.
What Is The Difference Between Zoom Meetings And Zoom Rooms?
Zoom Meetings are virtual video conferencing that can take place across any device. Zoom Meetings enable employees, customers and more to connect no matter their location.
Zoom Rooms are physical conference rooms that use conference software and hardware technology to connect users. They enable meetings to seamlessly run at the touch of a button.
Why Use Zoom Rooms?
HD Video and Audio – Seamless video that effortlessly works across desktop, mobile, and room systems
One-Click Wireless Share – Content can be wirelessly shared through the click of a single button
One-Touch To Join – Users can quickly join meetings with both video and audio
Calendar Integration – Rooms can be easily booked through Office 365, Google Calendar, or Exchange
Enterprise-Grade Wireless Sharing
By using Zoom Rooms, users can easily share multiple desktops simultaneously. Integrated technology within the room provides a number of wireless sharing options for guests and users within the network.
Zoom Room for Touch brings interactive whiteboarding capabilities to users. Participants can view and co-annotate on whiteboards across desktops, mobile, and Rooms.
Simplified Deployment and Management
Zoom Rooms have been designed to have minimal setup costs and IT support requirements, with their enterprise-grade room management. Remote management and software provisioning, room location hierarchies, and role-based administration and alerts for room issues all reduce pressure on IT.
Ideal for Every Room Size
Zoom’s technology is scalable for every room size. Whether it’s small huddle rooms with all-in-one kits or fully-customised AV systems for training rooms, Zoom’s cloud platform can be combined with the hardware that best suits the business need.
