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).

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