6 solutions for Microsoft

Teams in meeting rooms

Microsoft is becoming increasingly popular within the collaboration market. After the popularity of Skype for Business had already risen to an unprecedented level, the migration to Microsoft Teams is now fully deployed. We have tried different kits and selected 6 hardware kits that best serve the ease of use of Teams.

We tested various solutions to see if these Microsoft Teams solutions truly lived up to the vendor’s promise. Both native Microsoft Teams Room solutions, but also various Gateways that make it possible to use Teams meetings with existing H323 and SIP equipment. All Kits are available in our demo room for testing and comparison.

Yealink MVC500/MVC800 Kit

The hardware kits that Yealink offers fit perfectly in the meeting room and are designed for Microsoft Teams. MVC500 is perfect for medium meeting rooms up to 12 people. This kit is controlled from a Windows 10 Mini-PC with a 5x zoom camera and a speaker bar with excellent range. The touch panel displays the familiar Teams environment and the home screen shows 3 icons that provides access to wireless presentation (this can be wireless or wired), initiate a call or send an invitation. Participants are easily understood via the wireless microphones. For a larger space (from approx. 12 people) with more participants, the Crestron MVC800, with a 12x zoom camera and microphones with over 6 meter range and 360° voice pickup technology.

Polycom Trio8800 and EagleEye IV

Polycom offers the Trio 8800 (with a microphone with a range of 6 meter) in combination with a Polycom Visual Pro, Teams Gateway license and the Polycom EagleEye IV 4x camera, a top class solution for using Microsoft Teams in the meeting room. This solution provides a consistent video experience and operates intuitively, as we are used to from Polycom. Easily change the camera position by using the touch panel in the same way that you attend or book a meeting with “one-touch-join”. You can share content during the video call using an HDMI cable, whereby you can choose to connect it with a wireless presentation system such as Barco ClickShare. The Polycom Trio offers a rich audio sound and this is expandable. Combine this set with the EagleEye IV camera (PTZ camera with 4x zoom or 12x zoom) or the Polycom EagleEye Cube camera for smaller (huddle) meeting rooms. In short, a high-quality Polycom video conferencing solution for Microsoft Teams.

Logitech Rally Kit and Logitech Tap

Logitech has launched the Tap to further simplify the use of Microsoft Teams in the meeting room. The 10.1-inch touch screen has a sleek design and operates from a Windows 10 Mini PC. In combination with the Logitech Rally Camera, one of the best USB PTZ cameras, and the Rally Speakerbar you have a perfect set for small and medium-sized rooms. For larger spaces, the set can be expanded with the Rally Kit Plus, with 2 microphones and an additional speaker bar. The Logitech MeetUp (camera, mic and speaker) is a suitable solution for smaller spaces. In short, whatever set-up you put together, every meeting room always has the same simple operation with Logitech Tap.

Lenovo SmartHub 500 and Polycom Studio

The Lenovo Hub has a nice reflective and stain-resistant screen and shows the most popular functions of Teams in the home screen. Thanks to the 360° rotatability, everyone can take over control which makes the meeting more fluid. The LED ring shows three colors so that the status of the conversation is clearly visible. Together with the Polycom Studio, a powerful USB video bar that contains audio and video technology for decades, you have a great combination for small and medium-sized meeting rooms.

A very nice solution, with the Mercury as eye catcher.
