This equipment configuration is designed to support a standard, medium to large-sized conference room, seating up to 14 participants at the conference table. Additional seating may be needed for local presentations and meetings. Keep in mind that only the seated participants are intended to be visible during a videoconference or heard via microphones during a video or audioconference.
Typically one or multiple large format LED displays will be utilized in this room. In some cases, depending on the content that is being shared (such as financial spreadsheet detail), a large motorized or fixed projection screen and HD projector will also be used in conjunction with the LED display(s).
A conference table surface mounted receptacle will include capability for the following sources: 1 HDMI, 1 VGA with 3.5 mini-pin cable, at least 2 Ethernet RJ45 ports and at least 2 power outlets. Wall mounted HDMI, VGA, RJ45 and Power outlets/ports should be considered for any portable sources that are introduced to the room.
One local desktop PC with DVI or HDMI output, one cable TV HD tuner with HDMI output for viewing news or other information channels, and one Blu-ray Disc player for viewing training materials. Two of these sources will be viewable within the room.
Ceiling mounted speakers, sound induction speakers, or even the sound provided by the LED display(s) will be utilized to provide room audio. Depending on the source inputs, an audio distribution system may be needed for audio control.
A touchscreen panel that is recessed in the wall, or that is installed at the table surface will be used to provide easy and quick control over the resources in the room. These control panels may be custom programmed to meet the specific needs of the Customer and user preferences.
All sources can be viewed locally. Sources to be sent to the far end during a videoconference include the local desktop PC and a laptop with HDMI or VGA output. Two sources may be viewed simultaneously during local presentations or during a conference via an options list on the touchscreen panel.
