Recommended meeting size: 3-5 people
Huddle to small rooms are conference rooms or areas which have limited space for meetings and collaboration, perfect for round-table discussions. Equipment used in huddle rooms are also more cost effective, in comparison to large conference rooms.
There are two main types of video conferencing equipment; Web-based and Room-based.
What is Web-based Video Conferencing?
Web-based video conferencing allows for online collaboration through the use of personal and mobile devices such as desktop PCs, laptops, tablets and mobile phones. Participants are just required to use a video conferencing application of their choice and have a room setup utilising BYO devices such as a laptop.

What is Room-based Video Conferencing?
Room-based video conferencing solutions are usually hardware solutions that are installed, fixed and configured in your boardrooms or meeting rooms.
Room-based video conferencing comprises of an endpoint unit, which communicates over the standards based protocol, H.323, for communication across IP networks. This means that your unit would be compatible to communicate with most other video conferencing solutions on the same protocol.
They require no additional software or hardware, as the codec is the hardware that communicates with other endpoints and transmits video data and signals.
|All-in-one system that does not require additional software or hardware||May require installation or IT management|
|Host a conference directly from your standalone unit||Fixed solution – not portable|
|Advanced technology which reduces bandwidth usage and stabilises video transmission|
