A huddle room is a small and private meeting area, typically seating 3-6 people and equipped with teleconferencing and collaboration technologies. Depending on its size and needs, an organization may have several huddle rooms in addition to a large, conventional conference room.
Some benefits of huddle rooms:
Huddle rooms save money. They are much less expensive to outfit than large conference rooms, and they also can take advantage of spaces that are too small to serve any other useful purpose.
The rooms can be multi-purpose, for example, providing office space for mobile workers and telecommuters who are only occasionally on the premises while remaining available for everyone at other times. They can also serve as office space for client meetings, which otherwise might have to be held in a big and mostly empty room or offsite.
Multiple huddle rooms provide private spaces which are much more conducive to small-group collaboration than a large conference room which might have to be shared by various groups meeting simultaneously.
The more intimate space also tends to ensure that attendees are engaged.
More attendees can be added through teleconferencing technologies, expanding the adequate group size and potentially linking multiple meeting spaces, either onsite or at different locations.
The size of huddle rooms limits the number of attendees so that meetings are limited to individuals who need to be there, and other people can get work done instead of wasting time.
Key points to build an appropriate huddle room's sound quality are managing the adequate sound quality output versus sending voice level to avoid feedback stream. The choice of suitable microphones and DSP is necessary to get clear audio in both directions. We fully understand how usually huddle room is used; hence, the skillset is essential to complete the complete integration of network, conferencing camera, display, A/V in/out, and space.
