What are Zoom Rooms?


Zoom Rooms are a cloud-based conference room software powered by Zoom Video Communications Inc, an American company based in San Jose, California. It enables businesses to carry out interactive conferences efficiently. Unlike Zoom Meetings that are executed through a video-hosted-only manner, Zoom Rooms has a physical setup allowing other attendees to partake in the discussions virtually.

Users can start Zoom Rooms by purchasing a license. Cost starts at $49 a month after the 30-day trial period. Meanwhile, a room requires either a desktop computer running the software and a smartphone or tablet that will run the Zoom Room application or be the controller.

Setting Zoom Rooms up includes deploying other hardware for a better conference experience like an audio speaker, video camera, and LED TV for extended display. Once set up, you can now hold a conference for up to a thousand attendees, depending on your subscription.
