Hybrid Meetings Are Becoming More Intelligent Than Ever
Since their inception, hybrid meetings have been a head-scratcher for many businesses. How can a room full of people adequately speak to and see remote participants without leaving them out of the conversation?
The transition to hybrid meetings has been challenging, but solutions like Zoom Rooms simplify the experience for participants on both ends. Zoom Rooms systems work by integrating video conferencing hardware like cameras, displays, and controllers into the same Zoom platform.
And now, Zoom has unveiled three new features that will further improve the hybrid meeting experience. Here’s how Zoom Rooms are changing the way we collaborate and communicate, even across different languages.

The past two-plus years of the pandemic brought Zoom meetings into the modern lexicon.

BOOST PRODUCTIVITY WITH SIMPLIFIED ZOOM VIDEO CONFERENCING
In 2020, the pandemic turned the Zoom videoconferencing platform from an excellent business collaboration tool created by a fast-growing startup into a household word. Zoom became the default video conferencing solution for business, socializing and communication.
While casual users may think Zoom is just a video communication app, businesses and organizations know it is a powerful collaboration platform. But many organizations already have existing conference room systems with legacy videoconferencing capabilities. And while many workers are still remote, some employees don't have the option and must work in an office. How can you meld Zoom into your meeting spaces to allow both groups and individuals at your Phoenix, AZ offices to collaborate seamlessly with remote workers and teams anywhere? That’s what Zoom Rooms are all about. Keep reading to see how to integrate Zoom into any meeting space.

Zoom Rooms help make remote work possible by providing a sophisticated, user-friendly platform for communication
In 2020, Zoom is a household name — not just here in Phoenix, AZ, but across the United States and overseas. It’s won the popularity contest among other video conferencing solutions due to its ease of use and reliable service. Anyone can create or join a Zoom meeting if they download the software on their smartphone or computer. But audio/video meetings are only one component of the Zoom system. Zoom Rooms are a larger, all-inclusive solution that organizations can employ to foster communication, collaboration, growth and productivity among a dispersed workforce, including in-person and remote workers. Many employers like the benefits they reap from increased remote work opportunities. It decreases overhead expenses for the organization and fosters greater efficiency and output among employees. But these benefits depend on employees having the right tools at their disposal to communicate and work together effectively. And that’s where Zoom Rooms shine.
There are plenty of times when less is more, including when you are making decisions about your conference room technology. The best meeting room technology is a simple, one-stop, unified solution. But many conference rooms today are cluttered with technologies, including conference phones, USB speaker phones, flat panel displays, laptops or desktops running meeting applications, and lots and lots of cables. Some technologies might be compatible while others aren’t, and integrating personal devices such as mobile phones is complicated at best and impossible at worst. Meetings can already be a drag—a poorly equipped meeting space only makes it worse. The Crestron Mercury was developed to address those common—and annoying—problems with the typical meeting room user experience. And Crestron’s new partnership with online meeting platform Zoom takes meeting efficiency to the next level.
