Indeed, whether it is the sound reverberation of which we have just spoken, comfort.

Your videoconferencing room is ready.
Jabra panacast, The notion of a huddle room appeared a few years ago across the Channel and refers to small areas offering 3 to 6 seats maximum.
Given its small surface area, the huddle room often forces participants in a videoconference to sit very close to the screen and the webcam.
All participants can be correctly visible by their correspondents without distortion and without having to contort themselves by seeing just to its right or left.
An American manufacturer, Panacast, has designed an extremely compact webcam with an exceptional 180 ° viewing angle.
Jabra, the European manufacturer of headsets and tools dedicated to video, bought this manufacturer in 2017.
Poly studio x30 and x50: professional webcams are the direct competitor of Jabra.
The American firm Poly (a contraction of the Polycom and Plantronics companies) specializes in video equipment dedicated to this type of room through its Polycom studio range.
Two models are mainly in use: the Polycom Studio and the Poly Studio X30 (its equivalent natively embedding the Zoom and Teams solutions and therefore requiring no PC to operate).
These two webcams for videoconferencing rooms offer 4K resolution, an intelligent zoom on the speaker.
The “soundbar” format also makes it possible to manage the sound part (microphones and speakers).
Two other videoconferencing cameras have been very successful for this type of configuration:
1. The Meeting Owl Pro
2. The Kandao Meeting
Meeting room with PTZ cameras, Thanks to its 5x zoom, its automatic focus on the speaker, and its “all-in-1” design – microphones + powerful soundbar.
The Poly Studio X50 is the tool ideally suited to this type of meeting room.
Coupled with its TC8 supervision tablet, it will be able to launch your Teams or Zoom web conference with a single click and without a PC.
An alternative to this product can be the Logitech Rally Bar.
Considering many panelists, the webcams generally used in this type of configuration are PTZ cameras (motorized) and equipped with an optical zoom allowing a focus on one or more people, with impeccable image quality.
The Aver Media and Polycom EagleEye ranges are the most used in these specific cases.
However, making the right choice still depends on other factors and will require technical advice from our video experts.
If a 32-inch screen may be sufficient in a Huddle room, it is less and less rare to be equipped with large TV screens, some going up to 85 inches (over 2 meters).
Easier to install and more responsive than video projectors, professional digital signage TV screens have completely replaced business video projectors in recent years.
Hearing well and being heard are essential factors for the success of your videoconference.
However, If some webcams integrate microphones and speakers like the Polycom Studio, it is advisable to equip yourself with audio peripherals to increase listening comfort and voice capture.
