ROOM’s latest launch, ‘Room for Zoom’ in the UK in collaboration with Zoom Video Communications, Inc. and HP, Inc. is a video collaboration suite that improves connection for remote and office based workers.
Key features include soundproofing and a modular architecture that’s fitted with built-in VC lighting, a monitor, webcam, skylights, connected power sources, ventilation.
“The return to office working is a much-debated topic among businesses and workers globally, but one thing that everyone agrees on is video communications are very much here to stay. We’ve teamed up with Zoom and HP to create a solution that allows employees in the workplace to seamlessly connect with their remote-based colleagues” said ROOM Co-Founder, Morten Meisner-Jensen.
“Our aim is not just about changing spaces – we want to rethink and redesign our relationship with work. Improving life for employees at work is now on the radar of CEOs and CFOs globally. This is why we have designed a space in which employee-centric software and modular architecture complement each other. Modular architecture makes workspace design affordable and flexible because it can grow with a company. It’s something that’s right for today but can also be reconfigured to evolve with the changing needs of a business tomorrow” added Meisner-Jensen.
Room for Zoom
Room for Zoom includes sustainable soundproofing made from recycled plastic bottles, which is engineered to reduce noise by 27dB. The Room also features a custom accessory rail for personal belongings, and a whiteboard provides users with a comfortable, clutter-free workspace and ample natural light.
ROOM’s products are pre-fabricated, sustainably sourced, and flat-packed.
Room for Zoom integrates ROOM’s modular Focus Room with HP’s G6 27-inch All-in-One touchscreen, paired with a Logitech Brio Ultra HD PRO Business Webcam, pre-installed with Zoom Rooms software.
Room for Zoom also features two custom-built LED light strips with remote dimming and is available in two colour pallets, light and dark.
“Architecture and location can be a source of stress during video calls: lighting, background noise and the chance someone could walk into the room during a conversation. ROOM worked with us to put together a product that removes those pain points while helping people in workplaces in the UK work more closely together, regardless of their location,” adds Phil Perry, Head of UK & Ireland at Zoom. “We’re excited by this collaboration, and we’re looking forward to seeing Room for Zoom roll out across the UK in the coming months.”
