HAUPPAUGE, N.Y., Jan. 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of their commitment to helping companies collaborate as efficiently as possible, audio visual solutions company, IVCi, lists 3 conferencing and camera options to implement into your huddle space.
Huddle spaces continue to represent a popular and effective alternative to traditional meeting areas. With a low required investment and the flexibility to foster on-demand collaboration across multiple teams, more and more businesses are starting to take advantage of the big benefits these small spaces bring to the table.
Shopping for equipment to outfit a huddle space can be overwhelming, with many different options that are designed to address different needs. Discussed below are 3 conferencing and camera options to consider when designing your huddle space.
Cloud vs On-Premise Conferencing. There are a few aspects a company needs to consider when putting together a plan to meet their video conferencing needs, one of which is whether the equipment should be cloud-based or hosted on premise. There's no clear answer as to which technology is superior across every situation, and the right decision will depend on the company's existing infrastructure and their video conferencing needs.
Network management availability, security and firewall levels, streaming and recording capabilities, and multipoint conferencing are just a few of the details a company needs to keep in mind when shopping for a conferencing solution. Before moving onto specific products, the business needs to take into account the type of functionality they are looking for and whether or not they have the ability to effectively implement those solutions.
The Best Camera For The Space. Once a company has decided on whether they are interested in cloud or on premise conferencing, it's important to consider the type of camera equipment that they'd like to implement in their huddle rooms. Perhaps the biggest consideration to keep in mind is cost, as budget concerns can exclude many models and make certain options much more attractive - especially when outfitting multiple meeting spaces. Another option to consider is video quality, as spaces intended for communication with important clients will need much higher fidelity than spaces intended for informal meetings among employees.
Other factors a business will need to keep in mind are how much of the room will be covered by the camera, the way the equipment will connect to the company's network and displays, and overall integration with an AV ecosystem. Just as with the platform decision, the best camera for the company will be an individualized choice that takes the needs of the specific space into account.
Integration And Connectivity. The best AV platforms aren't limited to simple video conferencing. Huddle rooms should be designed with flexibility in mind, and one of the best ways to improve that flexibility is by offering multiple ways to connect to the room while integrating the space with the greater office environment. Cloud platforms that allow employees to access all of the relevant documents, communicate, and collaborate using their own devices are a great complement to the relaxed environment and on-demand efficiency of the huddle environment.
