Many organizations today are determining whether to implement either Zoom or Microsoft Teams Rooms. Both Zoom Rooms and Microsoft Teams Rooms are videoconferencing solutions designed for meeting rooms, and they each have their own unique features and benefits. The choice between the two will largely depend on the specific needs and preferences of the organization. We’ve found that if an enterprise organization has Microsoft Teams as the primary in-house preferred video conferencing platform, then deploy Teams Rooms. If Zoom is primary, deploy Zoom Rooms. Below we dive deeper into the Zoom room and Teams Room comparison for organizations who aren’t sure which solution is the right choice.

Zoom Rooms has a simpler, more intuitive user interface and is generally easier to set up and use. It also has a wider range of hardware compatibility, allowing organizations to use a variety of devices, including Macs, PCs, and mobile devices, to join a meeting. Additionally, Zoom Rooms has a robust virtual background feature, which allows users to customize their backgrounds and can be useful for professional settings. We’ve also found that in large more complex “integrated” AV deployments that Zoom Rooms is easier to build and has a more seamless user experience. For All Hands, Boardroom, Training Rooms, where handheld mics and multiple cameras are utilized, Zoom Rooms far exceeds Teams Rooms.

Microsoft Teams Rooms integrates tightly with Microsoft’s suite of productivity tools, including Office 365 and Exchange, making it a good choice for organizations that are already using these tools. Teams Rooms also offers more robust security and privacy features, which is especially important for organizations in regulated industries. Additionally, Teams Rooms provides seamless integration with other Microsoft products like OneDrive and SharePoint.

The choice between Zoom Rooms and Microsoft Teams Rooms will largely depend on the specific needs and requirements of an organization.
