Meeting Room and Boardroom Video Conferencing for Microsoft Environments
Bringing Microsoft Video into the meeting room should be simple, and enable all communications to integrate without users breaking the workflow. With solutions for direct integration with Microsoft, interoperable solutions for collaboration between multiple vendors inside and outside of your organisation or dedicated Microsoft endpoints such as the Surface Hub or Crestron RL2, VideoCentric provides solutions for:
- Microsoft Office 365 Customers looking for meeting room devices to complement their cloud service
- Skype for Business customers adding Skype Room systems
- Microsoft Teams Room Solutions
- Organisations looking for a one-click to join user experience for meeting room participants
- Exchange & Outlook integration for calendar scheduling & room booking
- Low complexity, lower costs and a simple user experience when collaborating between the meeting room and the desktop
- Connecting your existing video endpoints from Cisco, Lifesize, Polycom and more with Skype for Business, O365 and Teams.
“Effective, engaging collaboration that leverages video conferencing should incorporate features like content sharing, clear participant rosters, easy call management controls and Instant Messaging. But Microsoft Research shows that some 97 percent of meeting rooms aren’t adequately equipped to handle video.”
For your teams, users and IT, our Microsoft solutions for meeting rooms can provide:
A Consistent Microsoft Interface
Improve user productivity by deploying one streamlined communications interface across all your devices, so that employees can move from their desktop to the meeting room, and still have the familiar look and feel that they know and enjoy.
Enterprise Video, Voice & Collaboration
Devices that are certified to work with Microsoft on-premise or in the cloud, and integrate meeting room video into your current business workflows. Immersive video & audio innovations with a simple interface, broad interoperability and the lower TCO of any video solutions, designed, integrated and supported by experts in their field.
Purpose Built Microsoft Endpoints
Solutions purposely built for Skype for Business, Office 365 and Teams, that offer plug-and-play simplicity, or run your Microsoft UC solution directly from the device. With a variety of configurations that can meet the needs of all room sizes, we have a full understanding of what works where, when to choose a purpose built device (and when not to), and demonstration facilities for you to see them all in action.
Bridging of Video Environments & Multiple Vendors
For many, Microsoft isn’t everything. You may communicate from your meeting space with others outside of the Microsoft world, have professional meeting room devices or immersive telepresence rooms from other manufacturers such as Cisco, or want to bring in guests or those on standards-based communications platforms into your conference space, remotely. Our solutions for Microsoft in the Meeting Room include cloud and on-premise solutions, gateways, meet in the middle VMRs (like an audio bridge) and a Microsoft Azure hosted Office 365 platform providing users with Skype for Business and non-Microsoft endpoints with the same Skype for Business experience.
