Why use Microsoft Teams Rooms?

Using a mix of cutting edge camera, microphone and AI technology Microsoft Teams Rooms provide a simple way for people to communicate and collaborate remotely with little or no training. All a person needs to do is invite the Microsoft Teams Room to a meeting. Then when the meeting starts, just walk in to the meeting room and the video conference will be ready. Just select Join to connect to your participants with superb quality video and sound quality.

What is a video conferencing system?

Modern businesses regularly need to work with customers, employees and partners who may not be able to come in to their office. Often it isn’t practical to have everyone physically together for a meeting due to geographic, cost or time constraints. Video conferencing systems provide a means to make connecting with other people to exchange information or ideas as seamless as possible with people inside and outside of the meeting space. 

What is the Logitech Rally range?

Logitech are our preferred manufacturer for Microsoft Teams Room equipment. Their Rally range provide devices, services and accessories for every room size. They use high quality components and advanced management capability with Logitech Sync which keep users and the IT department happy. Many of the devices run their unique CollabOS which removes much of the complexity required with managing a dedicated computer for each room, instead giving an appliance based system which does exactly what it needs to do without any additional overhead.

Large Spaces

In boardrooms or training rooms the Logitech Rally Plus or Rally Bar systems can be used on their own or extended with additional microphone pods to cater for over 40 participants . In the example below a boardroom has been enhanced with a Logitech Rally Bar with two displays connected and three microphone pods have been mounted flush in to the table. The Logitech TAP touch screen has also been been mounted to the table so that attendees can join, control and interact with the meeting with ease. Finally a secondary Logitech Sight content camera has been added to the existing whiteboard which enhances drawing, text, and sticky notes in real time so that everyone can see them clearly.

Logitech Rally Plus

The Rally Plus is the ultimate is in flexibility and modularity. Separate room filling speakers, omnidirectional microphone pods, and a pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) 4K camera capture everything in the room. Due to its modularity you can also use either a tiny PC running Microsoft Teams Room on Windows (MTRoW) for the latest features or a Logitech RoomMate running CollabOS for a streamlined Microsoft Teams Room on Android (MTRoA) experience.

Logitech Rally Bar takes all of the core features of the Rally Plus system and combines them in to an all-in-one formfactor. Its on-board processing and CollabOS mean that you can run the system out of the box with no additional components required. It also includes a secondary AI camera which can be used to track people as they move around the room, automatically zooming in to perfectly fit the attendees in frame. 

Mounting options are also available to secure the bar above or below a TV or directly to a wall.

Medium Spaces

Day to day meeting spaces or huddle rooms can be complimented with the Logitech Rally Bar Mini or Logitech Rally Bar Huddle. Using the included remote control or a touch enabled display you can create simple, elegant collaboration spaces.
