Check your room's acoustics and lighting.
Flat surfaces reflect sound, so hard floors, doors and walls can distort your voice. This can be remedied by laying carpet, hanging curtains and installing a soft pin-up board or portable office partition.
Reduce lighting behind presenters. Bright backlighting makes it hard to see their faces.
Consider painting your walls a neutral or soft grey tone.1
Install microphones and speakers.
Choose microphones with echo cancellation. This feature improves clarity by removing echoes and reducing audio "squealing" feedback.
High quality standalone computer speakers are fine for mid-size rooms. Alternatively, music sound systems with multiple small speakers can reduce echo and bass, making them ideal for projecting voice audio.2
Choose high definition webcams with "Pan Tilt Zoom" feature, which allows you to control the camera via remote control.
Position cameras at eye level for better eye contact. If your camera is atop a big screen, you may have to reposition it to the side of the screen.3
Two screens are better than one. Dual screens enable you to display the speaker on one screen and their presentation on the other at the same time.4
Configure your Mac/PC and iPad Controller.
Connect your screen, microphone and camera to your Mac/PC. Then run Zoom Rooms app on your Mac/PC and iPad controller.
When using dual screens, set your computer's display mode to extended displays.5
