Host video conferences that are as effective as face-to-face meetings
As remote working becomes the new normal for many, an increasing number of meetings take place as video conferences. Businesses need more meeting rooms equipped with technology that allows employees to communicate effectively with customers and colleagues, wherever they may be.
But until recently, video conferencing suites were expensive to install, inflexible and complex to use – not to mention inaccessible to most employees. LoopUp Rooms is a simple, cost-effective solution that converts regular meeting rooms into video-enabled spaces, making remote meetings more engaging, productive and secure for everyone.
Optimise every meeting room for video conferences with LoopUp Rooms
LoopUp Rooms use off-the-shelf hardware components that can be sourced from your regular IT supplier. And they’re simple to set up – LoopUp Rooms is browser-based, so there’s no custom software for you to install.
LoopUp Rooms connects these components together:
- A large display screen to see other guests and content that’s being shared
- A web camera that captures everyone in the room so other guests can see you
- A mini PC to access LoopUp meetings through a regular web browser
- A touchscreen console for users to join and control their meeting
- A conference room phone for reliable, high-quality audio at all times
It takes just a few minutes for your IT team to turn a regular meeting room into a video-enabled LoopUp Room – and you’re ready to host your first video conference!
