HAUPPAUGE, N.Y., March 6, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Huddle spaces have been dominating the corporate culture for the past few years by offering an alternative space to the traditional meeting spaces. Video conferencing equipment supplier, IVCi, discusses the five categories that should be considered when choosing the right video conferencing camera for your huddle space:
- Cost. Traditionally, huddle rooms are smaller than a normal sized conference room, which usually means less equipment is needed. However, when choosing a camera for your huddle space, there are several aspects that should be taken into consideration. Since different types of cameras fall into different price ranges, not only should the cost per camera be considered, but also the total amount of cameras needed. This is an important factor when integrating multiple huddle rooms into one larger office building.
- Room Coverage. Choosing a camera with a horizontal field of view (FOV) will provide your huddle space with the best coverage being that these meeting rooms tends to be a smaller size than traditional conference rooms. This FOV will allow your huddle space to avoid "tele-absence", which occurs when a person is in the room but is not seen on camera.
- Image Quality. While getting everyone in the camera view is the first priority, having a quality image is also important for successful meetings. Take into consideration the resolution, pixel utilization, zoom quality, and light requirement for each camera before making a final choice.
- Flexibility and Control. The types of meetings held in your huddle room will determine the level of flexibility and control your camera will need. Will your video conference require a motorized camera, or will a stationary camera suffice? How the cameras settings are adjusted will need to be considered as well since a control system for camera motion may need to be put into place.
- Connectivity and Integration. Huddle rooms can be extremely useful to conduct meetings with clients, partners, or even remote employees. When choosing a camera for your huddle space, it's important to take note of the types of connectivity varies cameras offer, be it a USB, HDMI, or a different format altogether. Not only is connectivity important, but the availability of integration also plays a big role in choosing a video conferencing camera. Since cameras can be integrated with analytics engines or larger AV systems, knowing the type of environment your camera will be placed in and how it will be used to communicate with others will allow you to develop a level of integration needed for your huddle space.
