Video Conferencing Equipment Overview

What is Video Conferencing Equipment?

Video Conferencing Equipment is audio-visual hardware that enables video conference calls. This includes cameras, microphones, speakers, remote controls, etc. These are installed in a meeting room with a monitor so that conference participants can collaborate with colleagues in a remote location. Modern deployments may support one-to-many conferences (e.g. a livestream broadcast), or many-to-many collaborations with peers spread across disparate locations able to talk to and see each other.

Video Conferencing Equipment Features & Capabilities

Video equipment may provide the following key differentiators:

  • lifelike HD video quality

  • HD audio quality, support for multiple microphones

  • Interoperable with web conferencing software

  • Interoperable with VoIP services

  • Self-diagnostic & easy troubleshooting

  • Room booking, calendaring and scheduling

  • Scheduled event reminders

  • Event recording to software platform, video service

  • Dynamic responsive video camera (focus on speaker)

  • Multi-monitor (e.g. dual display) support

  • Screen-sharing, support for web conferencing type features


Key Considerations

Voice quality, as well as video quality, are crucial. Most vendors strive to make the audio and visual streams as lifelike as possible so that high-quality video conferencing can replace travel/in-person meetings without sacrificing productivity.


Performance not only impacts the quality of meetings, it also determines how much time IT administrators will need to spend troubleshooting the equipment.


Interoperability with web conferencing software, VoIP services, calendar scheduling functionality, etc. is another key consideration for buyers, as is the ability to upgrade by adding multiple cameras and/or microphones for larger spaces and groups.


In addition to connecting conference participants face to face, some video conferencing equipment allows users to share content with the group from their mobile device or computer.

Pricing Information

Video conferencing equipment is available on perpetual licensing and presents a single up-front cost. However, device service plans, warranties, or firmware updates are usually available on a subscription basis. Discounts may be available for equipment bundles (e.g. free cables, discounts for multiple cameras, etc.). And because many video conferencing equipment vendors have shifted focus to web and video conferencing software, with their recurrent revenue model, video conferencing equipment is often discounted when bundled with a subscription to a vendor’s conferencing software.
