Noticed at InfoComm

As far as the Unified Communications world goes, "huddle" is the word of the show. After walking through the show floor, the one thing that sticks out like a sore thumb is the usage of typical vc equipment for huddle spaces.. Now I'm not sure if it's just because of space limitations in booths, but I saw way too many 4 person tables slammed right up against either one monitor or two with a PTZ camera sitting above the displays. This is absolutely usless if you have four people as the camera can't capture everyone with its typical FOV. Now again, I'll state that maybe this is because of booth space limitations, but this type of setup is plainly bad. I've not seen a huddle solution that incorporates a PTZ that has an acceptable outcome.

If you do in fact have a huddle room and plan to use a PTZ camera, at the very least place the camera at eye level and keep people as far away from the displays as possible.
