Huddle rooms are special. Unlike larger conference rooms, where people tend to remain seated, huddle rooms are designed to support a more dynamic collaboration style. Huddle room meetings are ad hoc, energetic, and highly collaborative. People get up and move around while brainstorming with colleagues. They share ideas by writing on whiteboards. To accommodate these tasks, the ideal huddle room requires furniture and devices that won’t get in the way.

Because huddle rooms tend to be small, modular furniture is key. Peninsular tables that attach to the wall can be a great way to maximize floor space, while stackable chairs or cushions provide reconfigurable seating options. Another vital element of effective huddle room design? Technology.

Biamp’s Devio platform was designed with huddle rooms in mind. We didn’t simply shrink boardroom-sized devices into a smaller package. We built Devio specifically to help people make the most of smaller spaces. That’s why Devio’s beamforming microphones are compact and available in both ceiling and tabletop form factors to suit each room’s specific needs and space constraints. It’s also why the Devio unit can be mounted underneath the tabletop or behind a monitor. With a Devio solution in place, employees can enjoy efficient and effective calls and ad hoc meetings. Devio is there to support more collaboration (and a lot less frustration), even in the tiniest huddle room.
