A Zoom Room is a software based video conference system installed in a physical space, suitable for small meetings with up to 6-8 participants.
Zoom Rooms cannot be automatically connected to a scheduled video conference. There are however provisions for the host to add a Zoom Room manually to a meeting. Alternatively, the participants in the Zoom Room can manually join the meeting using the Zoom client on the NUC.
The bare minimum equipment hardware requirement (with very rough minimum cost estimates) for a small Zoom Room are:
Scaling up from the bare minimum model to suite larger meeting rooms (8-16 participants), add a control system (iPad, Crestron Mercury or similar) with provisions for additional microphones and, external speakers etc.,
Some control systems are fitted with an inbuilt microphone (and provisions to add external mics) and speakers.
