Desktop Video Conferencing

Desktop video conferencing is the optimal solution for online meetings or conferences with presentations on your computer, and is optimized for one person per room, each with a headset.

In addition to MS Teams, UZH also provides Zoom as a desktop videoconferencing tool.

We recommend various systems for conducting hybrid sessions in your institute's own rooms. Here you can find more information (German only).

Table Microphone for Video Conferences

We are happy to loan you a table microphone (please see Equipment rental). If you regularly hold video conferences, it is usually worth buying your own table microphone.

We recommend conference microphones from the following manufacturers:
Jabra: recommended model – SPEAK 410, approx. CHF 100
ClearOne: recommended model – CHAT 50 USB, approx. CHF 200

MS Teams

Central IT recommends MS Teams for internal online team meetings with up to 300 participants. For further information, click here
