Hands-on testing of a secure meeting room console designed for the Skype Room System


For many years, enterprises around the world have used software-based video conferencing applications like Microsoft Lync and Skype for Business within their meeting rooms. However, these deployments suffered from a handful of challenges including:

  • System Workflow – most conferencing applications (including Skype for Business for example) are optimized for desktop PC / notebook use and not for use in a meeting room on a large shared display
  • User Interface – the need to use a keyboard and mouse to control the solution provided an unnatural, non-intuitive experience for those in the meeting room
  • Physical Footprint – bring your own devices (BYOD), such as a notebook or NUC PC, requires extra cabling and AV hardware resulting in a cluttered and untidy installation
