April 26, 2022: U-M Zoom Rooms Release Notes - April 2022 are now available.
Zoom Rooms is a software-based conference room system that provides a streamlined experience for audio conferencing, wireless screen sharing, and video conferencing using the Zoom platform. Users of a Zoom Room can launch scheduled Zoom meetings with a single press of a button. This makes it easy to combine in-person and virtual guests in a simple, no-hassle hybrid meeting experience.
U-M Zoom Rooms provides an affordable and easy-to-use conference room experience that seamlessly connects with Zoom meetings.
The ITS service for U-M Zoom Rooms provides:
- Zoom Rooms software licensing and hardware at affordable prices negotiated in bulk for the University overall.
- Pre-configured hardware and software packages that are easy to install and set up.
- Ongoing Zoom Rooms software maintenance with new vendor releases and automatic updates.
- A single consistent set of configurations across all Zoom Rooms deployed for U-M.
The ITS service for U-M Zoom Rooms is designed for installation and use in U-M unit and department conference rooms; U-M Zoom Rooms is not available for other use cases, such as classrooms. Each unit is responsible for installing the Zoom Rooms equipment in their conference room and providing first-level support to their users.
Existing conference room systems can be used to connect to Zoom meetings, but a license is required, and there are limited features. (See further information on using Zoom Rooms with existing conference room systems.)
