Online Room Configuration Guides

Online Room Configuration Guides from Logitech, Poly, Konftel, Jabra and Yealink 

Video conferencing and collaboration continues to expand and evolve to support the new ways of working. Microsoft Teams and Zoom are front runners; however, businesses use multiple platforms, including Webex, Google Meet, BlueJeans, GoTo, 8×8, and more.  

Leading brands have developed online tools to help establish a starting point. It’s always best to contact a subject matter expert. Something as simple as a wrong cable or length can delay your project. Subject matter experts can help guide and ensure you get all the required components to set up an optimal video conferencing experience based on your needs and expectations. Companies like Call One, Inc. have been in the audio and video conferencing space since 2003 and can help provide the right solutions.  

Below are the current online video conferencing selection tools available. I’ve also created short videos to help you navigate these awesome online tools!
