One of the questions we get all the time is ...
How do I create a huddle room?
In the past, we would go through the various components that make up a Huddle Room (the camera, the speaker phone and audio, the display, the controls) and then talk about how to use open space(s) effectively. Then we talk about the usual environment considerations (lighting, noise, movement) since most huddle rooms are not physical rooms with four walls - but most are in open spaces.
And when talking about Huddle Rooms, where the display would be installed was a huge consideration. If it's in an open space, and you needed two displays, that was going to require lots of "space", which in many cases mean wall space, and that limits your options.
That was before Heckler Design came out with their display carts. With the Heckler carts, you can configure either a single or dual display, have
all your components installed or stored on the
cart and since it's on smooth rolling wheels, you can put it anywhere in your office. In fact, you can move it from one office for an hour, then move it to an open space where your project sits or even put it into another video enabled conference room.
You can go from a single static option to a dynamic option of creating huddle spaces anywhere. In fact, we loved the idea so much, we decided to create Cart Kits (similar to our room kits) to help you get started creating huddle spaces where ever you need them in your office.
Check out our Zoom Rooms Cart Kits and start imagining what you could do if any space become a Huddle Room. Our carts are designed with everything you need to get started immediately - it includes all the cart hardware, camera, audio, room controls, iPad, and cables. Once it's all assembled, you can start collaborating with your team.
The picture that pops into my mind when someone says "desktop video conferencing" is someone sitting in front of their laptop or desktop computer with either a built in camera or something hanging on the top of the screen. The solution works, and if you are using a headset instead just the build in speaker/mic [...]
Founded only 6 years ago this month, Zoom has become the go-to web video conferencing app for almost any size company. We've previously mentioned how they are crushing it on customer review sites such as G2 Crowd and Trust Radius (click the links to see how Zoom is doing) - being the leader at both sites. So [...]
Why do we create video conferencing bundles and kits? It's a pretty simple answer, over the past few years, we've seen the same type of rooms, and the same questions asked. We decided a couple years ago, to create pre-configured bundles, specifically designed for the video conferencing application you've chosen. They are designed for the [...]

Video conferencing comes in lost of flavors, and one thing we just love about Zoom is the ability to host webinars. But to be fair, depending on the size of your audience, you can hold an live webinar with any of video conferencing partners - Zoom just gives of a featured packed webinar option (with [...]
We see lots of cameras at VideoConferenceGear.com. We compare specs, features and do our own testing. One of the things we continually run up against is the limitations of most camera for small spaces - including those popular huddle rooms layouts. The high quality conference room video cameras can fall short in a small room [...]

It's easy to overlook some of the smaller details when designing your Zoom Rooms. Details like securing your iPad Meeting Room Controller/Console. That's why we partnered with Heckler Design, and include their beautiful enclosure with every Zoom Room kit we create. Their products are not just functional, they are works of art. They are designed specifically [...]
Time to get serious I’ve got a quick question for you … have you ever attended a webinar or talked online via video (Skype or Google Hangouts)? Most of us have experienced video conferencing (even if we didn’t call it that), but it goes deeper than just being a participant. If you own a business or [...]
