Anyone who’s ever used a laptop for a group conference call knows that its camera is not good for much more than showing the face of the person in front of the screen—and the elbows of those seated nearby. If you’re charged with finding professional and practical video solutions for small meeting rooms, you may think you have to sacrifice quality for savings—or vice versa. Fortunately, that’s no longer the case.
Creating a More Collaborative Environment
Modern collaboration is visual. The fact that that 55 percent of communication is body language has long supported the use of video conferencing, but its relevance is only increasing with younger generations showing a preference for video in many forms.
According to ClearOne Chair & CEO Zee Hakimoglu, “People from all walks of life are now completely video-centric in their personal and professional lives. That means they need to be able to video conference with colleagues, and they want to be able to do this in an affordable way without sacrificing video quality.”
Just because huddle rooms and other small spaces are used for spur-of-the-moment meetings doesn’t mean the equipment should be an afterthought. Your employees may generate their big ideas in your smallest spaces, so they need a video conferencing camera that is easy for them to manage, brings a new level of video quality to popular apps, and clearly captures what’s happening in the room.
Getting Great Cost and Quality
You can get quality video while capturing all meeting participants—at a price that allows you to outfit all your small meeting spaces.
