Zoom Rooms

What is a Zoom Room?

Zoom Rooms are software-based room systems that provide an integrated experience for audio conferencing, wireless screen sharing and video conferencing. Zoom Rooms can be used for room only attendees or remote attendees joining from another room, from their desktop, or from their mobile device. Each room requires, at minimum, a Mac or Windows computer that runs the Zoom Rooms software, and an iPad, Android or Windows 10 tablet that runs the Zoom Rooms app. This resource is available on a limited basis for licensed Zoom hosts.

To get started, first ensure you have the proper equipment:
