Get The Right Camera for Your Conference Room

From Huddle Rooms to Boardrooms, There’s One for Every Application

Get The Right Camera for Your Conference Room

We live in a golden age of communication.  Digital technology enables us to talk with anyone, anywhere in the world, in full motion video.  We can share information instantly, doing in minutes what used to take days only 30 years ago. 

Collaboration software has put a whole variety of what used to be separate functions together, letting us hold instant meetings either one to one, one to many, or many to many, at little to no cost save the availability of a robust Internet connection. 

So, what’s in your conference and meeting rooms?  Do you have the right cameras for today’s impromptu – or planned – video meetings?  Are you set up to do a remote training session over video with crisp visuals and audio?  Can you have an important meeting with a group halfway around the world and make sure nothing is lost in translation?  To do that, you need the right conference room camera equipment for your Dallas meeting spaces.  Read on to learn more about our partner ClearOne’s camera solutions for various types of spaces.

Want Better Video Conferences?

Check Out The Latest Conference Room Camera Features

Want Better Video Conferences?

Today’s technology lets us productively collaborate with colleagues, customers, suppliers, and vendors from Dallas to Plano or from Dallas to Shanghai.  The tremendous popularity of collaboration software like Skype, GoToMeeting, Zoom, Slack and others have made it easy to share information and see and hear meeting participants almost like they were in the same room.

Another feature of collaboration is that it stretches the physical limits of meetings too.  Whereas you might not have room for 40 people in a conference room, you could hold a presentation for 40 people through a video conference and still have attendees ask questions directly.  But if you want to optimize the collaboration experience – whether it’s a 6 person meeting or a presentation to 40 – there is equipment that helps make sure the messages come across loud and clear.

In this blog, we’re going to focus on conference room cameras.  Let’s take a look at some of the features you should consider to upgrade your video conference experience.

Turn Any Room Into a Video Conferencing Room

All You Need is Crestron Mercury and a Laptop or Smartphone

Turn Any Room Into a Video Conferencing Room

Some 15 to20 years ago, holding a video conference could be a slow, tedious, and painful experience.  The equipment was bulky, the video was grainy, and a call could easily lag or freeze, making for a less than collaborative experience.

Today we routinely use video collaboration solutions from laptops and mobile devices, with excellent resolution and audio capabilities thanks to today’s powerful and sophisticated hardware and software.  Apps like Zoom, Slack, Skype, GoToMeeting, and many others offer the ability not only to see and hear the person on the other end, but also share screens, files, and additional information as well.

When you get into a conference room, the same ease of use and low cost doesn’t always translate to that arena.  Some systems can be costly and don’t let you use the conferencing and collaboration solution of your choice.  What if you wanted a system that enabled you to use the devices you use for collaboration every day – laptops, tablets, and smartphones -  but also gave you the right audio and video capabilities necessary in the meeting room so everyone can participate, in the room and remotely.

That’s why Crestron, a longtime leader in conference room design, created Mercury. Read on to find out how Mercury brings enterprise-class collaboration capabilities to one meeting room or many.
