In your typical online meeting, you sit down in front of an open laptop. The camera and a microphone are pretty close and pointed right at you. In fact, it’s about the best setup you can get – the other folks in the meeting can see and hear you fairly well. Now imagine setting that laptop at the end of long board room table or, even worse, at the front of a training room and trying to see and hear everyone in the room from just that little built-in microphone and camera. Anyone watching remotely would quickly get frustrated trying.
