▶ What is Hybrid Meeting

A hybrid meeting combines in-person guests with remote attendees. Remote attendees join the meeting via a virtual meeting platform, such as Microsoft Teams or Zoom. In-person attendees sit together in a dedicated meeting room. 
Hybrid meetings can help oil the wheels of team collaboration and decision-making in your organization, with meetings taking place as if all guests were in the same room.


▶ Application

The Covid pandemic and global lockdowns have radically changed the way meetings work. Many large-scale conferences, such as international summits, academic symposia and shareholder meetings have embraced a hybrid approach to meetings.  With hybrid meetings, the conferencing system must be seamlessly integrated with the unified communications system. High definition cameras are used to film presenters in the conference room which increases engagement within the auditorium and encourages the active participation of remote guests.
