The Zoom Room interface can control: Mute, Camera on/off, share screen, inviting participants and even H.323/SIP dial out functionality.
Zoom Room Google Calendar & Exchange Integration
Zoom Rooms can be integrated with either Google Calendars or Microsoft Exchange which allows users to book the conference room with a familiar resource allocation tool. Once you have scheduled your meeting using Google Calendars or Microsoft Exchange it will be displayed on the iPad for a simple touch to start meeting. You will have the ability to "Meet Now", "View Scheduled Meetings", "Join" a meeting, start a "Presentation" or simple launch an audio conference call "Phone".
Zoom Room Audio Conferencing & Dial Out
As we mentioned above the audio conferencing functionality of Zoom Rooms is extremely powerful. Although the use of video conferencing usage has grown over more than 100% over the past two year, the majority of meetings today are still audio only. So Zoom has provided audio conferencing dial out functionality directly in the touch screen interface. Zoom provides "Premium Audio" to support audio conferencing calls in any zoom room over a VoIP style connection. No need to worry about traditional analog phone lines!
Zoom Room Wireless Presentation
Yes, Zoom did think of everything. Not only is zoom replacing the expensive hardware based video conferencing codecs, but they are replacing wireless presentation hardware like the Crestron Air Media, Barco Click share and Mersive Solstice Pod. Zoom offers wireless presentation from any device users can bring into the room during a video conference call. Users can simply visit http://share.zoom.us and enter the meeting ID of the video conferencing in session to share their screen. Zoom also takes Zoom Rooms a step further by provide simple in room wireless presentation capabilities even when a video conference call is not in session. From an apple device they can share content via airplay from their device to the mac mini, simple!
Zoom is combining so many useful technologies into one package, along with global leaders like (apple, Intel, Revolabs, Microsoft, LG etc.). It takes a moment to really absorb the power of the "Zoom Room". So it must be expensive right? No. Zoom Rooms are a cost effective solution for any organization. Those SME customers who once thought HD video conferencing was out of their budget, think again! The complete Zoom Room including all equipment and licenses start from around $300 per month and that includes a fully loaded unlimited video conferencing license for your conference room. This standard license supports up to 50 video attendees per meeting. Sign up for a free trial today at the link below!
