Zoom Video Communications Inc. has introduced a new type of touchscreen video conference room system, as an alternative to traditional cloud, hardware-based room systems, that can provide three screen support. Dubbed "Zoom Rooms," the system features local and remote wireless content sharing as well as video and audio conferencing with up to 200 interactive video participants and the ability to integrate software for calendaring systems. The conference room system works with any Mac or Windows-based PC or with an iPad controller and can connect any USB peripherals such as conference cams.
Zoom Rooms for PC-enabled touchscreen displays allow onsite teams to include colleagues in a remote location to brainstorm ideas using video, audio, screen sharing and whiteboarding for a better conference room experience, according to Zoom Video. The company has already worked with vendors like TruTouch, DisplayTen and Optika Display to provide displays for the conference room system—with prices ranging between $5,500 to $14,000. These displays are available now expect for TruTouch, which will start shipping in May.
Furthermore, Zoom Rooms for PCs allow for enterprise IT professionals to incorporate the conference room system in a single pane view for easier management. The technology also allows for three screen support for more display options such as showing the active speaker, gallery view and shared content, Zoom Video says.
The company says that this technology will work not only in a corporate environment but also in healthcare and industrial fields.
