There's no question that everyone in a video call should enjoy the best possible experience. And it shouldn't matter whether you’re working at home, at your desk in the office, or in the meeting room. Unfortunately, it does. At least for now.

Before COVID, most people joined video calls from meeting rooms. Over time, people accepted that they had two options; see postage-stamp views of everyone in the room or close-up shots of a few people at a time. When COVID hit, everyone went home and spent hours a day on video seeing close-up views of each remote participant in a separate video window.

Naturally, people expect this same "see everyone close-up at all times" experience when they dial in from the meeting room. Everyone wants video meeting equality -- and they want it NOW.

During this jam-packed session, a leading video analyst will shed some light on the video meeting equality issue. Then, several vendors will present their approach to meeting equality. Finally, we'll dig in deeper during a brief Q&A / panel discussion.

Give us 45-minutes (and perhaps some supplemental oxygen), and we'll help you address the growing need for video meeting equality.

Takeaways:

  • Why is video meeting equality so important today?
  • Does every video meeting need meeting equality?
  • Why is it so hard to get everyone in the meeting room on camera properly?
  • What are the leading vendors doing to address this pressing issue? Is this a hardware issue, a service issue, or both?
  • Will I have to replace my entire meeting room AV system to provide meeting equality?
  • Can I afford to provide video meeting equality in every room?
  • Will video meeting equality add complexity or burden on the IT / AV support team?
