Teleconferencing

Teleconferencing table

Collaborating remotely is more common than ever. So if we understand that “great workplace design drives creativity and innovation“, then it stands to reason we should be making our teleconferencing rooms well designed. But what can you do beyond actually including power and data capabilities into your table? Choosing the right table shape and adding branding is a great starting point. You can also increase the value of the space by making it flexible and reconfigurable with modular tables.

The 4 Best Table Shapes for Teleconferencing

For videoconferencing the most important thing is sightlines and for that, there are four shapes that lend themselves very well for viewing:

  • Boat
  • Keystone
  • U-shaped
  • V-shaped

Boat shaped tables are quite popular as they’re most reminiscent of a traditional rectangular shape. The keystone shape – wide on the video end – offers nearly as much seating as a rectangular table. U-shaped and V-shaped tables, while impressive, seat people along their outer edge only and therefore seat less.

Reinforce Brand Values with a Logo

Wow the people you’re meeting with 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. When you include branding in your conference table you’re making sure your presentation stands out.  There are many ways to add branding to your table beyond a logo as well.

Maximize the Efficiency of Your Space

 

Make your teleconferencing space more flexible – and therefore more valuable – by using reconfigurable modular tables. These 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. Enable collaboration without sacrificing the ability to focus.

We’d love to help you improve the workflow and increase the efficiency of your teleconferencing meetings. Our expert Designer Engineers are terrific at listening to your needs – they seek to understand function and use of not just table but entire room. This allows them to suggest solutions that provide the best functional use of space while working within your budget. They can offer modifications that keep design integrity, take feedback and apply to design changes.

If you haven’t already, please look through our gallery of custom conference tables. You can choose any of these designs as a starting point for your project, or you can submit your own designs.
