Zoom Rooms Make It Easier To Connect

With an increased use of 67% in the first three months of 2020 and over 300+ million daily meeting participants, Zoom has impeccably become the go-to source for meetings, conferences, classes, and meetups.

It doesn't stop at just a downloaded app or a simple join meeting code, Zoom has now created an easier way to connect, through Zoom Rooms and Zoom Room Appliances.

What exactly is a Zoom Room and how is it different from the conference room of yesterday?

A Zoom Room is a cloud based solution for the evolving conference room. It handles the three main pain points of any conference room: starting a meeting, booking a meeting, and sharing content whether your participants are in the same room or are joining from wherever they can.

Access a full HD video and audio Zoom Room meeting from any desktop, mobile or room system with a unique one touch to join. This can be done for instant on-the-fly meetings as well as scheduled meetings.

With a scheduling management system it becomes easy to book rooms across any location. Zoom Rooms are scalable and can be optimized for any size room, from a huddle room, conference room, training rooms, theaters, board rooms, etc. The system integrates with Google, Office 365, and Exchange calendars for booking, room status, meeting lists, and more.

The most advantageous feature you may discover is the one click wireless sharing. Content can be shared from any participant.

Interactive whiteboarding can be a thing now for viewing and co-annotating, even over shared content. These whiteboarding sessions can be saved as well and you can open up to 12 at a time.
