Most enterprise conference room and training room environments were built for a different time – a time when most video conferencing was room to room. In today's hybrid environment, with most video calls now supporting both room participants as well as hybrid participants, these legacy rooms provide a subpar user experience. In this webinar, the panel will discuss a variety of technologies and design methodologies that can improve the experience for both the room participants and remote participants.

Participate in this September webinar to:

  • Understand the design of legacy video conferencing environments and why those do not support hybrid environments well.
  • Explore the unique characteristics of hybrid environments for video conferencing.
  • Learn about new technologies and design methodologies to properly design video conference rooms to provide an excellent user experience for both in room participants and remote participants.

Workspace trends are moving towards smaller, more flexible spaces, with more remote working over the long-term according to AVIXA’s IOTA report. For more key developments and digital workplace trends, view past webinars in the monthly Conferencing and Collaboration Power Hour.
