Zoom for Home
The saying goes that crises are always times of opportunity and it is true. From each of them there was always someone who came out reinforced thanks to the opportunities he knew how to take advantage of. In the current health crisis, Zoom It has been one of the companies that has seen its business, that of video calls, grew exponentially. And that has also been criticized for security issues.
However, it seems that none of that has prevented them from seeing that there is a possible market for a new device designed solely and exclusively to make video calls in a very professional way. Zoom for Home is a screen 27 ″ touch screen that is designed to conduct video conferences with total comfort and the best possible audio and video quality. All without having to mount an important shed with a camera, microphone and different cables in between.
This new device, which for now will only be available in the United States, is not really a creation of Zoom but there is another company behind it in charge of the hardware. It is DTEN, a company with experience in this of devices designed for conducting video calls in professional environments.
They have built this 27 ″ screen where various elements stand out. On one hand the panel, for its diagonal and for being tactile. What in theory would give a somewhat more natural experience when making video calls and you have to consult data or interact with the screen elements. Then there is the inclusion of a system made up of for audio.
All this hardware is designed to offer superior quality to common systems that many of us have been with and we may even continue to use to work remotely. And of course, all that thought to use with Zoom, the software that the company with the same name integrates by default.
A product with little travel
Despite being a eye-catching product for features and optionsThis Zoom for Home created by Zoom and DTEN will really have little travel, because few really need it to work from home.
So, without doubting that your hardware is worth the $ 599 They ask for him, the truth is that few will be those who really bet on him. It is for such a specific niche, that it is even surprising that they make a movement of this type where up to DTEN OS It is solely and exclusively intended for this.
With some simple tricks and considerations, the quality of a video call with the own hardware you can have through the use of your smartphone, tablet or computer is more than enough. What’s more, normalizing video calls for everything when some issues could be resolved with a couple of emails is not the solution.
Anyway, for those looking for something like this it may be striking. Although, as we said before, beyond the United States it probably won’t come out. And if what you need is a device to make video calls with family and even colleagues, an Amazon Echo Show may be more than enough. And we think, the video quality may not be outstanding, but the audio quality is going quite well. After all, it is a smart speaker with a camera, so understanding perfectly what you ask from Alexa is its priority.
