8 lesser-known videoconferencing options for work

When Google upgraded its Hangouts conferencing app to an enterprise version, Hangouts Meet, it decided it needed some dedicated hardware to go with it. There are four components: a touchscreen controller, a speakermic designed by Google, an ASUS Chromebox running Google’s ChromeOS, and a camera. Several speakermics can be daisychained to cover long conference tables, while the camera’s built-in software helps it detect meeting participants, cropping and zooming the image to fit them in the frame. The hardware is available from Google as a kit, but the camera, developed by Norwegian firm Huddly, is also available separately. It has a 16 megapixel sensor with a 150-degree field of view, and connects to computers via a USB 3 port.

It isn’t just for Google Hangouts: It also works with Skype, Slack, BlueJean, JoinMe, Zoom, Starleaf, IBM Connections and Appear.in.
