NEW YORK – ROOM, a provider of adaptive office solutions, launched Room for Zoom a prefabricated solution for hybrid workplaces. The launch is in collaboration with Zoom Video Communications, Inc. and HP, Inc. According to the company, Room for Zoom combines its modular focus room with HP Collaboration All-in-One PC embedded with Zoom Rooms’ software and built-in lighting optimal for video conferencing.
Given the rise in flexible work environments since the beginning of the pandemic and for the foreseeable future, the ROOM, Zoom and HP collaboration provide the first-to-market, turnkey video conferencing space that is purpose-built for the hybrid workplace.
“When it comes to discussing the post-pandemic office, the one thing that has universal agreement is that video conferencing is here to stay,” said ROOM co-founder and CEO, Brian Chen. “With this collaboration, we have created a seamless solution that removes the hassle of figuring out how to best support a great video conference experience from the office.”
The Room for Zoom, which is flat-packed and sustainably produced, can be installed in just a few hours, with minimal downtime and disruption to the office environment. It comes equipped with an HP Collaboration G6 27-inch All-in-One touchscreen paired with a Logitech Brio Ultra HD PRO Business Webcam, pre-installed with Zoom Rooms software for seamless communication and collaboration. The Room for Zoom also features two custom-built LED light strips with remote dimming that create the perfect shadow-free video conference experience.
“Conference calls are simply more pleasant when you don’t have to worry about how your background looks to those with whom you are speaking, or worry about who is going to walk in,” said Ty Buell, PSO Solutions Architect, Zoom. “When we experienced the design and soundproofing aspects of ROOM products, we were eager to collaborate with the firm, and are pleased this collaboration has come to fruition.”
A thoughtful, integrated workspace designed for Zoom’s video communications platform will be increasingly in demand as it has become clear that in the future, people are likely to have flexible, hybrid work arrangements — neither working entirely from home, nor entirely from an office in a central business district. The collaboration reflects the exponential growth and longevity of hybrid work solutions as more forward-thinking brands collaborate on multi-pronged solutions that accommodate how employees will work most effectively, regardless of location.
Room for Zoom features include:
• adjustable desk heights;
• built-in power sources;
• silent fans and fresh air ventilation;
• optional HEPA filtration.
All of ROOM’s modular prefabricated and flat-packed products include sustainable soundproofing made from recycled plastic bottles, which is engineered to reduce noise by 27dB. Thoughtful touches such as skylights, a custom accessory rail for personal belongings, and a whiteboard provide users with a comfortable, clutter-free workspace and ample natural light.
