Looking for a simple, easy to use, but high quality conferencing camera and speakerphone? Conference Room Systems has designed specific Pro AV equipment and kits just for you! These options were built with user friendliness as a top priority and affordability coming in a close second. All you need is your own computer with a display option and you are ready to look and sound professional on your next web conference today!

Video Conference Camera with Microphone:

  1. HuddleCamHD Go All in One Conference Camera
  2. HuddleCamHD 3X-G2 & HuddlePod Air Package
  3. HuddleCamHD 3XA or 10XA Conference Camera With Built in Mic



Option #1 The HuddleCamHD Go All in One Conference Camera

Great for: Small Rooms or “On the Go”

Camera and Speakerphone: $299

Display: Your Existing Computer (Free)

Computer: Your Existing Computer (Free)

Software: Your software of choice free version (Free)


Total Cost: $299


Let’s start small with an all in one pro VCS (video conferencing solution). The HuddlecamGO is an incredible little device, in fact, the sales team probably doesn’t like how much I love this little camera. For only $299 this camera provides an all-in-one professional lens and speakerphone with just one cable. The HuddleCamGO has everything you need to get started on a budget and it is so easy your grandmother (that still doesn't even have an iPhone) could figure out how to use it!

On the go? This camera is small and great for the travelling business person who needs to stay connected. Also great for small huddlerooms, or companies that don’t have a specific conference room. It has a wide angle lens, so can be placed on any table and will capture a small group of people (110 degrees field of view). The microphone is omnidirectional so it will clearly pick up audio from anywhere in the room, alleviating the need to actually “huddle” around the device. The only things you need in addition to this camera are your existing computer, display, and the free version of your favorite software.


Camera Details:

  • USB 2.0 Powered
  • 360 Degree Microphone and Speaker (Omnidirectional)
  • 110 Degree Field of View Lens
  • Up to 30fps
  • 1920x1080 lens
  • Dimensions: 2.8 x 2.8 x 9.25 (inches)
  • Color Options: Black and White

Disadvantages:

  • Only works with a computer monitor limiting size of screen you can use
  • Not good for large rooms or many people
  • No Zoom or Pan feature (has slight tilt that is manual)


Option #2 The HuddleCamHD 3X-G2 & HuddlePod Air Package

Great for: Small Rooms with Need of Pan, Tilt, and Zoom Capability


Camera and Speakerphone: $698

Display: Your Existing Computer (Free)

Computer: Your Existing Computer (Free)

Software: Your software of choice (Free)


Total Cost: $698


An affordable, entry level camera, the 3X-G2 is ideal for small to medium sized huddle rooms. Offering full pan (360 degrees), tilt, and zoom capabilities this camera can capture everyone in your meeting. A plug and play solution with full HD 1080p and a USB 2.0 output for quick easy install. Easily control the camera through RS-232, RS-485, or the included IR remote. The camera can be tripod, wall mounted, or ceiling mounted with the included mount adapter, and even vertically flipped for ceiling installs.


This camera is going to give you a lot more versatility than something fixed like the HuddleCam Go. Also unlike the HuddlecamGO the audio is not embedded in the camera instead this package comes with the HuddlePod Air, a wireless tabletop speakerphone. This speakerphone uses wireless USB technology that is far superior to bluetooth ensuring crystal-clear audio for all of your meetings. With a pickup range of about 12 feet in any direction, this pod works well for small to medium sized rooms. It also includes echo cancellation and 7 hours of battery life.


Together the 3X camera and the HuddlePod Air are the ultimate duo for small huddle rooms in need of a camera and microphone solution.

Picking the Right Conference Room Speakerphone
 

Picking the Right Conference Room Speakerphone

Video conferencing is one of the most effective and efficient ways to communicate remotely between companies. Saving travel costs without losing the important face-to face connection, increased productivity, and more. While great quality video is essential to video conferencing, arguably the most important aspect of any conference room is your audio solution. Even with faulty or non functioning video, a meeting can still continue given clear audio. With the multitude of conference room phone options, it can be hard to pick the right one for your space. This guide will help you determine an audio solution based on room size and shape as well as product price.


When picking out a conference room phone solution for your next project consider these important features:


Echo Cancellation- One of the most disruptive occurances during a conference can be easily solved with echo cancellation. Echo cancellation is needed on both sides of the conference to avoid echo.


Microphone Pickup - Depending on the size of your room or conference table, you will need to find an audio solution that reliably picks up audio from every speaker in the room. Smaller solutions start at around 10-12 feet of pickup range, for larger rooms we suggest using something like the Huddlepod Duo which pairs two speaker phones together to double the reach of the audio.


Omnidirectional - Make sure your speakerphone is omnidirectional so that it picks up audio from users in any part of the room, not just those facing one side of the speakerphone. Unless your room focus is entirely on one spot.


Wired VS Wireless - Many are opting to get rid of messy wires as technology has advanced to offer better wireless options. Stay away from low quality bluetooth and stick with wireless USB for the best results.


Here are Some of Our Favorite Conference Room Phone Solutions:

1. HuddlePod Air Wireless USB Speakerphone
2.
Phoenix Audio Spider USB and Smart Interface
3.
HuddlePod Air2 Duo
4.
Acoustic Magic Voice Tracker II

The Best Wide Angle Conference Cameras
 

The Best Wide Angle Conferencing Cameras and Kits
- Small to Medium Conference Rooms-


Video Conferencing has become increasingly popular in the workplace these days, but sometimes conferencing space is limited. Squeezing multiple people into small huddle rooms and trying to get everyone to look good on camera can be a challenge. That is why we are offering a number of wide angle cameras and kits specifically designed with “Huddle” rooms in mind that have large fields of view to capture everyone in the room at close range. We know that not every company has the space or budget for complex AV installation and instead we offer affordable solutions that fit into any business space, even the smallest.


Typically for small rooms, accommodating 4-6 people, it is recommended to have at least an 80 degree field of view in order to capture everyone seated in the room. A camera with a wide angle of 45 degrees will only capture within a field that is 82% as wide as the distance from the camera. This is only 41% of the wider camera image and would not capture people seated at the front of the table. See the graphic below for examples:



Not just for small rooms, wide angle cameras can also be a great asset if your medium sized room is particularly wide, or if you need to orient your room so that the camera is in the middle instead of at the end of a long table. If any of these room layouts sound like yours, than you will need a wide angle lens camera. Take a look at some of our favorite options.


It is essentially the difference between seeing this:

A nice image of your whole team at close range accomplished a wide angle lens


Or This:


A good portion of your team cut out of the picture with a non-wide lens

QUICK TIP: Place your mouse cursor over anything you think could be a clickable link. You'll notice that anytime you scroll over something that is a link, your mouse cursor will become a "hand". Whereas scrolling over anything that is NOT a link will leave your cursor as an "arrow". You may also type a keyword into the SEARCH box to quickly find a specific product.
