Videoconferencing Considerations

With videoconferencing more common than ever, a conference table with power goes without saying. And we’re getting lots of requests for tables optimized for remote collaboration. Aside from incorporating power and data in the table, what can you do to enhance that experience? Choosing the right shape and adding branding are two solutions you can’t get out of a catalog. Here’s more on our custom solutions:

The 4 Best Table Shapes for Teleconferencing

Videoconferencing only works when everyone in the room can see the screen, and be seen by the cameras. We’ve found that these four shapes work best:

Boat shaped tables are the most popular table shape we make.  Boat tables can be outfitted with screens for each user, which allows for both videoconferencing and regular meetings.  The keystone shape – wide on the video end –allows for great sight lines both at the screen and from the camera, while still efficiently seating lots of people.  U-shaped and V-shaped tables offer unmatched sight lines, but seat fewer people in a given space.

Reinforce Brand Values with a Logo

Dazzle your viewers by adding a logo to your table. After multiple meetings, it can be easy to forget who is on the other end of the video link. Make sure they know who they’re talking by displaying your branding front and center.

There are many ways to add branding to your table beyond a logo as well. We can create patterns, include phrasing, or think outside the box and have your branding take on the whole table shape.

You can turn your conference room into a great huddle space, training room, and so much more. You can routinely change the space to fit your current needs without sacrificing the ability to teleconference.
