Our technical expertise

Microsoft Teams Rooms is a collaboration solution that integrates with Microsoft Teams. It is designed to enhance the meeting experience by combining audio, video, and content sharing capabilities within dedicated meeting spaces.

The main difference lies in the integration and optimisation for Microsoft Teams. While a normal meeting room may have standard audio-visual equipment, Microsoft Teams Rooms is specifically designed for the features of Microsoft Teams. It includes purpose-built hardware, such as cameras and microphones optimised for Teams meetings, and a user-friendly interface on touch-enabled displays for easy navigation within the Teams environment.

Microsoft Teams Rooms seamlessly integrates with Microsoft Teams for a unified communication and collaboration experience. It simplifies the meeting experience by integrating with Outlook for easy scheduling and management and through a one-touch join functionality. Access to Microsoft Teams’ collaboration tools, file sharing, and whiteboarding during meetings also enhance the meeting experience.

Microsoft Teams Rooms can be deployed in various meeting spaces, including huddle rooms, conference rooms, boardrooms, and collaborative workspaces. The suitability depends on the specific needs and size of the meeting space. However, Microsoft Teams Rooms are designed to be flexible and scalable, offering solutions for different room sizes and purposes.

A Microsoft Teams Rooms license is needed to fully utilise the capabilities of the solution. Licensing details may vary, but usually involves a combination of Microsoft 365 or Office 365 licenses, as well as specific licenses for Microsoft Teams Rooms devices.
