ThinkSmart Hub 500 Logitech Rally Plus large room system

A room accommodating up to 18 people, a large sized conferencing room is a reserved, enclosed space. This setup is designed so that the camera will capture the faces and the microphone will pick up the voices off all the participants in a space as large as 4.5×8.5 meters. Large meeting rooms usually involve a long conferencing table for meeting participants to sit around with a display for meeting content setup at one end of the room.


Meeting participants sit around a table where three microphones are distributed, so that they can pick up voices of participants sitting within a range of 2.3 meters.


A loudspeaker is located on the table so that meeting audio reaches all the listeners sitting around the table within 7.5 meters.


A camera is mounted at the edge of the room near a display. It is located within a range of approximately between 1 and 7.4 meters of meeting participants. It is designed so that it will capture those within a horizontal field of view of at least 70º.
