Top 10 Huddle Room Solutions

By Rebekah Carter - EM360

Video can also support employees in a remote workforce when context in a conversation with team members is essential. The good news for today's companies is that they no longer have to spend a fortune on large and complicated meeting rooms to access all the benefits of video conferencing.

Today's meeting room has shifted towards a smaller space. The huddle room is a small, convenient area with plug-and-play video, audio, and content sharing equipment. These rooms are excellent for impromptu meetings and quick conversations. Let's check out some of the best huddle room options on the market.

8. Logitech

Logitech’s leading solution for huddle rooms is the MeetUp room kit. This all-in-one conferencing camera fits onto any screen or monitor, with an ultra-wide lens to capture the full room. The 4K ultra HD camera ensures an excellent picture quality, with five times zoom available. The device also comes with a full-range speaker system for audio and a beam-forming microphone array.
