If users in your organization conduct meetings with many geographically-dispersed attendees, your organization may need video conferencing to provide the level of interaction between participants that is needed to effectively collaborate. Video conferencing is a set of interactive telecommunication technologies that allow two or more locations to interact using video and audio transmissions simultaneously. It has also been called visual collaboration.
If you need video conferencing, you also need video conferencing devices at specific locations. The Microsoft RoundTable conferencing device is a next-generation video conferencing system that provides a comprehensive conferencing experience through the use of 360-degree video and active speaker detection.
With the RoundTable device, you can do any of the following:
- Place an outgoing phone call.
- Answer an incoming phone call.
- Conduct an audio-only session.
- Conduct an audio/video (A/V) conference.
RoundTable is placed in the center of your conference table and connected to a computer, computer network, and PSTN analog phone line. The RoundTable cameras capture the entire panoramic view of your conference room, as well as the voices coming from any location around the table.
