Multiple huddle rooms provide private spaces which are much more conducive to small-group collaboration than a large conference room which might have to be shared by multiple groups meeting simultaneously. The more intimate space also tends to ensure that attendees are engaged.
With your Cloud Video Service in place, all you need is a device with a browser, as an individual you could use your own device that you are comfortable with if it’s a tablet or smartphone there’s an app to make life even easier.
It’s quite common for small groups to meet and if you are using a laptop to connect to the VMR then there’s a comfort limit to how many bodies can realistically enjoy a natural feeling video call simply due to the laptop screen size!
Add a laptop stand to bring the webcam up to eye level (eye line will affect the natural feel of the video call), add a HD webcam to increase resolution and capture a wider view, add a Mic/Speaker to enhance the audio.
Realistically a laptop is designed for individual use, so the next logical step is a larger screen to connect the laptop to and position the webcam top centre, we have now entered the realms of the Huddle space and a video enabled meeting room, so let us replace the laptop with a mini PC and you have a fixed “Visual Collaboration Solution” you can of course keep costs down by driving it with a keyboard and mouse or add a control panel, from the many off the shelf solutions currently available from leading brands.
