Key Components for Board Room Solution

Videoconference

A facility used to accommodate meetings between geographically dispersed locations. It is meant to emulate the traditional conference room model where all individuals sit around a common table and have equal access and view to all participants. The format of the meeting is based on a discussion paradigm.

Lighting

The best lighting for videoconferencing is diffuse fluorescent. It is important to minimize shadows and to create an evenly lit environment. To maximize the appearance of skin tones and to minimize shadows, use lights with a color of 3500 Kelvin and ensure illumination of participants' faces are between 500 and 700 lux (vertical). Additionally, do not use low energy fluorescent lights that operate between 30 and 50 kHz. These lights can interfere with the proper functioning

Ideally, the room should not have any exterior windows. If it does, they need to be covered with room darkening drapery/blinds.

Decor

The best decor is plain and simple. Keep the area within the camera's view uncluttered. Extraneous objects such as mirrors, artwork, plants, and fans cause the video compression algorithms to expend large amounts of processing resulting in less efficiency and reduced video quality. The best wall color is a neutral non-white color, such as light grey, light blue, or beige. Avoid wall treatments with patterns. These also can cause undo strain on the video compression system.

Acoustics
Audio quality, as opposed to video quality, is one of the most important contributing factors to a favorable videoconference experience, therefore good acoustics are paramount. One item of particular concern is reverberation - the effect of sound reflecting off of hard surfaces. One of the best ways to minimize the deleterious effects of reverberation is to coat floors, ceilings, and walls with sound absorbing material. In addition to minimizing reverberation it is also important to isolate the room from external noise sources such as fans and duct work from heating and cooling systems, water pipes, office machines, telephones, and street noise. A Noise Criteria (NC) rating of 35 should be met.

Microphone placement is also an important factor influencing audio quality. The first microphone needs to be installed that it is at least six feet from the system speakers. The second microphone is placed ten feet from the first. A microphone cannot be farther than seven feet from a speaking participant to ensure maximum audio quality and no more than three microphones can be used in a room.

Room Type/Furniture Layout
The conference table must be "U" or "V" shaped to ensure equal access to the camera for each participant. The table cannot be wider than 12 feet or longer than 24 feet in order to accommodate the requirements of the microphones and audio-tracking cameras. There cannot be more than 25 feet from the lens of the camera to the farthest participant to ensure visibility and correct functioning of audio-tracking systems. The rear wall of the room cannot be more than 40 feet from the lens of the camera. The seating must be laid out so that all participants can be seen in the camera's room view.
