What is a Microsoft Teams Room?

Microsoft Teams now has over 270 million daily users in 2022, and with so many organisations now opting for video meetings over face-to-face, companies are using Microsoft-certified hardware solutions to turn their meeting rooms into dedicated Microsoft Teams Rooms.

What Makes a Meeting Room a Microsoft Teams Room?

Turning a meeting room into a Microsoft Teams Room requires installing dedicated Microsoft Teams hardware within the room such as cameras, microphones and touch panels. Fortunately, leading brands such as Yealink, Crestron, Poly and Logitech provide full solutions for different room sizes with every piece of hardware needed, optimised for the size of the space and pre-installed with Microsoft Teams.

Can Any Room Be a Microsoft Teams Room?

Yes. The beauty of Microsoft Teams Rooms is that it is completely scalable and there are a number of solutions for any room size, from a small huddle space right the way up to large boardrooms. The difference is in the hardware, for example, huddle rooms may have a smaller camera with a wider field-of-view (FOV) to capture everyone in the room at close range, whereas a larger room may have a camera with optical zoom to zoom in and highlight whoever is currently speaking.

What Are the Benefits?

  • Consistent user experience with a familiar interface for Teams users
  • Easy to connect to and join/host meetings
  • Scalable to any room size
  • HD video and audio in your meeting rooms
  • Easy file and screen sharing on room displays

Why Use Microsoft Teams Rooms?

If your organisation is already using Teams as your communication platform, then it makes sense to deploy Microsoft Teams Rooms as it provides an easy-to-use system for high-quality meetings and an interface that your staff are already familiar with. You can also schedule your meeting through Teams or Outlook, which helps you stay organised and avoid double-booking the room.
