Everyone has a Zoom angle. Now Savant brings its smart home technology to the home office, introducing an integration with Zoom’s audio/video conferencing platform, Zoom Rooms.
With Savant’s Zoom Rooms integration, a Savant Scene and applicable audio/video services can automatically launch each time a meeting is started. For example, at the start of each meeting, lights can dim or brighten based on time of day, shades can be adjusted, background audio can be paused and more—all part of beginning a Zoom meeting. And once the conference has concluded, Savant will return the room to its prior state, automatically restarting music or other programming that had been paused for the meeting.
In addition to Savant Scene integration, Savant’s dedicated Zoom Rooms integration has been designed to leverage the lifelike clarity of a big screen TV and premium loudspeakers along with a variety of cameras and microphone packages from Savant Recommended Partners such as Logitech, Huddly and Beyerdynamic.\
“This month, we have added the ability to showcase the Savant and Zoom Rooms integration inside Savant’s Virtual Experience Center, which can showcase both a home office environment as well as a larger, commercially scaled deployment,” explained Ian Roberts, Director of Savant’s Education & Customer Experience. “One useful feature we included in the office setting is the full-color, DMX light strip we installed behind the home office display that we set to automatically glow red as a visual reminder whenever the Zoom Rooms user has audio set to mute. Innovative ideas like this will enhance the conferencing experience while creating opportunities for integrators.”
The Zoom Rooms conferencing solution from Savant has numerous potential applications beyond the home office. The company is positioning it as a tool to enhance the remote education experience, helping students better engage with instructors through a more visceral, lifelike experience. Outside work and school hours, gathering with family and friends will become easier and more comfortable using a wide angle camera, high-quality speakers, and a large, high-resolution video display.
The Savant Zoom Rooms integration is available now, including pre-configured camera and speaker packages.
