Preparing for ‘Anywhere Workforce’ with Zoom’s Hybrid Solutions
February 28, 2022 News


Zoom Video Communications, Inc. recently hosted an APAC virtual tour of its office headquarters in San Jose, California. The live tour demonstrated the use of Zoom Rooms, Zoom’s software-based room system that offers a range of exciting solutions designed to support hybrid workforces.

Work is no longer just a physical space, but a space where team members can come together to collaborate, no matter where they are located. Supporting a hybrid workforce will become critical to the success of organisations as they return to office, and Zoom Rooms enables organisations to prioritise their employees’ health and safety as they map out their strategies to sustain a ‘work-from-anywhere’ approach.

The virtual tour included remarks by Ricky Kapur, Head of APAC, who shared more about Zoom’s vision of the future of hybrid work. Jeff Smith, Head of Zoom Rooms, also presented an overview of innovations organisations can expect from Zoom to empower their workforce and enable collaboration among employees from wherever they are. The event welcomed participants across APAC and utilised Zoom’s Language Interpretation feature for live simultaneous interpretation in Bahasa Indonesia, Korean and Mandarin Chinese.

Key product highlights during the tour included:

  • Zoom Whiteboard. This is a powerful digital canvas for seamless, real-time, and asynchronous collaboration for the Zoom Meeting Client, in Zoom Rooms for Touch spaces, replicating the physical experience of using a whiteboard.
  • Zoom Rooms Smart Gallery. This leverages Artificial Intelligence to create individual video feeds of in-room participants, so they are viewed clearly and equally by remote employees, creating a more inclusive hybrid work experience.
  • Zoom Room Controller. This is a feature that allows users to start, stop and control Zoom Rooms meetings from their paired personal mobile devices, eliminating the need to come into contact with high-touch points.
