Understanding Huddle Rooms

With the growing millennial demand for flexibility, faster connections and more efficient meeting spaces, huddle rooms are becoming the ideal environment to quickly gather, collaborate and interact with one another.

In order to reach top productivity within these spaces, huddle rooms still require key communication devices. Here are five essential things to consider when planning a huddle room.

1. Location: Huddle rooms should offer the opportunity for flexible, casual collaboration. Look for unused office space or areas of an open floor plan that allow for teams to quickly group and discuss ideas.

2. Design: Comfortable furniture and adequate lighting are key to inspiring creativity. Looking at your AV requirements early on makes for a much smoother integration process. It also gives you the opportunity to consider elements that you may have otherwise overlooked (like room control systems).

3. Audio: Versatile audio conferencing equipment that is designed for open environments and flexible placement is imperative to the success of your huddle room’s effectiveness.

4. Video: Many of today’s workers aren’t tied to the office. Plug and play video collaboration is essential to ensuring remote workers, satellite offices and customers can efficiently communicate.

5. Display: Depending on how you share content, you may want to consider a touchscreen to maximize collaboration. Monitors should be mounted either to the wall or a cart to save room for seating and furniture.
