Keys to a Great Meeting Experience

Have you ever been to a meeting–especially one that involves video conferencing–that started on time? It’s probably been a while. But even with dramatic advances in technology, today’s business professionals waste precious time with outdated conference room equipment. Everyone wants video conferencing to encourage collaboration, but that shouldn’t mean figuring out the cable inputs, how to work the TV or testing whether participants can hear or see you.

As more and more businesses build Zoom Rooms, starting a meeting actually means starting the meeting. For businesses that invest in Zoom Room design, productivity increases as meeting attendees connect instantly and seamlessly. But here at DGI, an industry leader in conference room design, we’ve noticed while some companies are embracing the Zoom Room trend, they’re skimping on critical equipment that will improve the experience – namely the camera and display.

Your conference room is an extension of your brand and company values. Unless “cheap” is in your mission statement, that off-the-shelf webcam and discount TV won’t cut it. Let’s look at a display that makes a difference: the DTEN D7.

The DTEN D7 was designed as the ideal Zoom Room device. It comes in 55” and 75” sizes and offers an all-in-one video conferencing solution. Capacitive touch provides users with whiteboard capabilities, a best-in-class 16-microphone array incorporates crisp audio and the 4K wide angle camera provides a face-to-face, in-room meeting experience. A proprietary DSP from DTEN and Zoom keeps voices crystal clear and background noise to a minimum. Best of all, it works out of the box. This month, DGI has promotional pricing on DTEN products and bundles. Click here to learn more.

If a new conference room display isn’t an option, the right camera can make a world of difference. Unlike amateur Web cameras, professional USB conferencing cameras provide high definition 4K video, which enhances the attendee experience through better visual communication. Video conferencing should make participants feel as if they’re in the same room, and high-end cameras, such as the Aver CAM340+, deliver plug-and-play functionality, 120° wide angle perspective and crisp 4K Ultra HD video at an affordable price. The camera is perfect for huddle room environments where attendees are closer to the lens but need to sit on the edge or outside of the standard field of view. It is compatible with all of your favorite applications, including Zoom, and charges from your desktop or laptop, via a single USB cable.

Combining Zoom with the right equipment offers a game-changing experience for your meeting participants. Effective collaboration and productivity shows up in the bottom line. The keys to a great meeting can come down to choosing the right platform (Zoom), the right camera and the right display.
