Zoom has had a great two days at Enterprise Connect 2016, and the fun’s not over yet! We still have one more day to share our Zoom Rooms solution, so come by booth #211 for a demo and some swag!
At Enterprise Connect, we’ve spoken with hundreds of conference goers. We get a little tired of hearing ourselves talk – by the end, if we hear “video conferencing, online meetings, and group messaging in one unified platform” or “software-defined conference room solution” one more time, we’re going to explode. But, we never get tired of hearing from customers how much they love Zoom, and from other EC attendees about what they’re trying to accomplish with video communications. We know we can help!
Among the many conversations we’ve had this week, here are some of the topics that have elicited the most questions from our fellow conference goers:
We announced three new features for Zoom Rooms at Enterprise Connect: support for touch screens, PCs, and three screens. We’re demoing all three at our booth, but Zoom Rooms for Touch seems to be drawing the most attention. Zoom Rooms for Touch is our Zoom Rooms software that runs on various touch screens, so that you can whiteboard and annotate on shared content in a more natural, engaging way. Our launch-certified hardware providers are Newline TRUTOUCH, Optika Display, and DisplayTen. Learn more about Zoom Rooms for Touch.
This is always a show stopper. Throw out all the dongles, cables, cords, and adapters in your conference room – you are free! With Zoom Rooms, you can wirelessly screen share your laptop via share.zoom.us or your iOS device device via Airplay. It is perfect for both local and remote screen sharing, and crucial for everyday, on-the-fly collaboration. ‘Nuff said – you just have to try it!
Even current customers always ask about Cloud Recording. Zoom has two types of recording: local recording and cloud recording. Local recordings, which are the recordings that come standard with all Zoom accounts, are saved to your device. Cloud recordings are saved to the Zoom Cloud where they can be viewed, shared, and downloaded. The Cloud Recording feature is off by default, and is available to Zoom Pro, Business, and Education plan subscribers with the Cloud Recording add-on deployed. One great thing about cloud recording is that you can do it from your mobile device and Zoom Room, as well as your desktop.
Tradeshow, webinar, customer meeting – in all cases one of the most common questions we get is always: “What hardware do you recommend?” Zoom is hardware neutral. It can run on Mac, PC, Linux, iOS, Android, Blackberry, and H.323/SIP conference room systems. It also works with any USB camera and speakerphone. That said, we suggest you stop by some of our preferred partners at Enterprise Connect:
If you couldn’t make the trip to Orlando this year, there are still plenty of ways to get to know Zoom:
