As the proportion of remote video conferencing continues to increase, holding a remote videl meeting in the office room has become a nightmare for many people: complicated accessories, pre-conference adjustments, audio jams, unclear video, screen too big to reach or move, or screen to small to see....
The intelligence of ChatGPT has amazed the world, but the meeting experience in the conference room is still the same.
How to quickly build a smart meeting room in the age of AI everything?
We think it should at least meet the following characteristics:
- Simplest installtion, minimum wiring.
- Meeting efficiency.
No matter it’s a local or a remote video meeting, the purpose of the meeting is to achieve a goal in ths shortest amount of time, rather than spending 30 mins adjusting equipments for a 10 mins meeting.
- Value for money. The money spent on meeting equipments or applications should be reasonable.
Now let’s talk about the common solution for meeting rooms.
- A business projector : may include conference microphone, camera, speaker, wireless screen casting gateway and so on.
The advantage of a business projector is that it is easy to obtain a large-screen experience of more than 100 inches. It was the first choice for many small and medium meeting rooms. But because of noise and heat dissipation, ceiling installation is often required.
In order to hold a remote video meeting, it may also be necessary to purchase a bunch of additional audio and video accessories for a good experience. So there are inevitably cons.
￮ Large screen.
￮ Noise and heat dissipation.
￮ Many accessories.
￮ Difficult to use or adjust before a meeting.
￮ Compatibility between the accessories might not be good enough: unstable voice reception, poor image quality etc.
￮ High overall cost. A business projector is affordable, but when including cost of the audio visual accessories, overall cost becomes expensive.
- Conference interactive board: some integarted microphone and camera, while some didn’t.
The advantage of the conference interactive board is that, it offers handwriting as the input method and the screen brings a brighter display effect. In recent years, it has become a new and popular choice for meeting rooms. However due to the bulkiness of the screen itself, it has also become a huge problem for transportation or relocation.
The common size is 55-65 inches, which is suitable for handwriting interaction, but it is hard to been seen from a distance. While slightly larger 75-86 inches is way too expensive. It’s also not easy to reach the upper area of the screen to either write or tap.
In a meeting room, a displaysize of more than 100 inches is essential. Otherwise people will not be able to see clearly when they are sitting in the room.
￮ Brighter screen.
￮ Bulky. Not easy to install or relocate.
￮ Expensive. More than 10K US dollars for large screen size.
￮ If screen is small, people cannot see clearly. If screen is big enough, it’s not easy to write or tap in some areas.
￮ Poor voice reception. Unstable voice reception experience during video meetings.
￮ Extremely high power consumption. Some models up to 500W when in use.
- Home TV or projector: can only be used as a big screen display. Users still need to purchase conference microphone and camera
Compared to business interaction board, this option is cheaper but it doesn’t come with a handwritting feature.
Compared to business projector, this option is better-looking but it can only offers a big screen, nothing else. Chipset or CPU of home entertainment projectors are often low in terms of configuration, while designed with a closed operating system rather than an open one. The entertainment interface is not suitable for a business environment either.
Silimar to business projectors, additional audio visual accessories are needed for video meetings.

When in local meetings, normally a big screen is put into use for file/document presentations. Tranditional conference devices usually use a VGA or HDMI interface for screen projection, while modern computers most-likely come with USB-C ports. Under such circumstances, there is demand for various types of inter-connection cable or adapter for the meeting room.
Many new conference devices are also providing an option for wireless screen casting. However it’s obviously not enough.
StarryHub not also supports screen-casting from all terminals (WIN OS, macOS, iOS, Android etc.), but also allow users to cast up to FOUR SCREENS AT THE SAME TIME.
In a meeting, if the projector can only accept one casting screen, the participants would have to take turns if everyone has something to share, let along the possibility of comparing data from different participants during the meeting.
The option of casting four screens at the same time, switching screens back and forth, allows participants to disucss, compare data during the meeting easily..
