Delivering a digital ecosystem for the future workforce

Gone are the days of huddling around a personal device in the centre of the meeting room or struggling to work the video conferencing system to host a meeting. The modern meeting room has become an inclusive collaboration space which demands ease of use, high-quality video and audio, enabling all attendees, whether in-person or remote, an immersive experience.

While Teams on a desktop provides high quality audio, video and collaborative solutions for individual use, Teams Rooms offers purpose-built in office meeting space solutions to seamlessly support group meetings to deliver inclusive experiences for remote and in-person attendees.

With Teams Rooms, attendees can join meetings in a single step, share content, and collaborate with remote attendees to make meetings productive and engaging for everyone, no matter where they are.
