Make Your Minnetonka Office More Efficient With Smart Technology
It’s football season, so the concept of the huddle room feels especially active right now. It’s not a dusty conference room where people sit down and slowly melt into their seats over long meetings. The huddle room is an active spot where ideas are fired off to get people inspired, and the smaller size of the space is conducive to more lively discussion.
Our latest blog explores different huddle room solutions to make your Minnetonka office more productive and efficient. Keep reading to learn about these invaluable commercial technologies, which can also be scaled up for larger meeting spaces.
The best conferencing equipment provides crystal clear audio and video so that it seems like the people calling in are in the same room as the in-office cohort. Our brand partner, Lifesize, is the video conferencing manufacturer trusted by huge organizations like Netflix, Paypal, and the MLB. Lifesize creates conferencing solutions that deliver high-performance audio and video, improving the communications staff members have with each other and their clients.
For a huddle room, you’ll want the Lifesize Icon 450. The sharp wide-angle lens ensures visibility with an expanded range of view, and it has an integrated smart-framing sensor that guarantees everyone in the room is visible in the call. Pair that with a Lifesize Phone HD, which delivers unparalleled audio quality as well as a customizable touchscreen interface that serves as your connection to all the functions of your Lifesize conferencing system.
Wireless Media Sharing
Huddle rooms are designed to make employees more expedient, and wireless media sharing makes it much easier to start presentations and share information from a single device to the rest of the group. No more fidgeting with different cords to connect your laptop to your projector. Lifesize Share is a wireless media sharing device that connects easily to your presentation technology, and employees just have to go to your company’s share URL to enter a meeting room hub where they can share directly from their computer. An ultrasonic connection pairs the presenter’s laptop to the Lifesize Share, allowing them to share their screen or an application, play video, or upload files to a sharing queue.
Your office probably has a number of huddle rooms to facilitate these smaller meetings and discussions, and scheduling becomes very important to ensure that people are wasting going to rooms that are already booked. By incorporating scheduling capabilities into your commercial automation system, you’ll be able to avoid those scheduling headaches. Employees can check the status of huddle rooms from an app that also allows them to reserve the space, so if the meeting scheduled before them goes long, they aren’t stuck waiting outside instead of doing more work.
