Cloud conferencing software varies widely on both features available and on price.

What equipment will you need?

In principal, you do not need any conferencing equipment to participate in cloud conferencing. Only an application and device that can connect to it with a microphone.

However, if you’re looking for a high-quality solution then we recommended that you invest in a microphone and webcam. In this case, finding a good quality microphone with full duplex technology, echo cancellation and noise reduction technology is important. If you are also looking for a top of the range camera, then a PTZ (pan-tilt zoom) camera is the best option.
