Microsoft Teams Rooms enables hybrid meeting experiences. It can turn any room into an easy-to-use meeting space where everyone can fully engage and participate. Teams Rooms includes an ecosystem of Microsoft Teams software and certified partner hardware devices to meet the needs of various meeting requirements.
Microsoft today announced Microsoft Teams Rooms Pro offering that includes the existing Teams Rooms features, more new features, and the Teams Rooms managed service platform in a unified single license.
Microsoft Teams Rooms Pro offers the following:
- Intelligent audio and video: To help everyone be seen and heard, we combine high-quality audio and video from Microsoft Teams-certified devices with video layout options like front row, noise suppression, and bandwidth optimization. Advanced camera capabilities use AI to help remote attendees feel like they are in the room with automatic framing to capture the active speaker.
- Increased engagement: Beyond audio and video, one of the best ways for remote participants to establish their presence in a meeting is to engage with ease. We’re bringing popular features from the personal Teams meeting experience to Teams Rooms Pro—including features like wirelessly sharing content, raise hand, and live reactions. And when using the classic video grid layout, chat bubbles alert in-room participants to the conversation happening alongside the meeting, so nothing gets missed.
- Powerful collaboration: Real-time collaboration can be a part of every meeting for every attendee through Microsoft Whiteboard, Microsoft Surface Hub 2S, and the intelligent capture of an analog whiteboard. Easily add a touch display to enable multi-user, shared whiteboarding, or add a content camera to share an intelligent, augmented whiteboard view into Teams meetings.
- Management and security: Great meeting experiences start behind the scenes with strong security and operations. Teams Rooms Pro provides essential enterprise-grade management and security, including access control, remote configuration, and device analytics, as well as IT service management (ITSM) integration. Teams Rooms Pro also includes the Teams Rooms managed service platform, which provides AI-driven operations that automate updates, problem detection, and resolution at scale.
Microsoft Teams Rooms Pro is available now at USD40 per user/month. The existing Teams Rooms offering will be available in the name of Microsoft Teams Rooms Basic and it will be available for free with up to 25 rooms. Teams Rooms Basic is included with the purchase of any certified Teams Rooms device.
Teams Rooms Basic provides foundational Teams meeting experiences like scheduling, joining meetings, and wireless content sharing. For customers needing core management and hybrid meeting features, Microsoft recommends Teams Rooms Pro.
