The 6 Most Necessary AV Equipment You Need for Video Conferencing Right Now

Rugby Editorial 23rd Feb, 2024   0

It can be hard to know what’s the right choice when choosing from the range of video equipment available on the market.

We’ve narrowed it down to the top 6 items you’ll need to make the most out of your conference.

The key items you’ll need

1. A desktop computer, laptop, tablet, or smartphone with a built-in camera and microphone is the fundamental device needed for video conferencing. Ensure your device meets the minimum system requirements for the chosen video conferencing platform.

2. Many computers and devices come with built-in webcams, but external webcams can provide higher video quality and additional flexibility in terms of positioning. Consider a webcam with features like autofocus and low-light correction for improved performance and an overall better quality of equipment for video conference.

3. While built-in microphones are common, an external USB microphone can offer better audio quality and reduce background noise. This is particularly important for clear communication during video calls.

4. Good audio quality is crucial for effective communication. Use headphones with a built-in microphone or external speakers to ensure that you can hear others clearly, and they can hear you without feedback or echo.

5. Adequate lighting is important for a clear and well-lit video feed. Position yourself facing a natural light source or use artificial lighting to ensure your face is well-illuminated, reducing shadows and improving visibility.

6. Choose a reliable video conferencing platform that suits your needs. Popular options include Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Google Meet, and others. Ensure the software is up to date for the latest features and security patches.

Remember to always check for the specific requirements of the video conferencing platform you’re using and ensure that your equipment and software are up to date to make the most of the features and security measures available.
