How To Use Queen Squirrel Boardroom Conferencing Equipment

Modified on Thu, 4 Jul at 4:26 PM


AMS has two Polycom conferencing systems available for use in the board room. These systems are an excellent option for virtual meetings and remote conferencing and include some very cool features like automatic tracking of the current speaker. Any staff member with an AMS email can sign into the system and use the conferencing unit.

Please be aware that these systems are highly sensitive and can pick up whispers during a conferencing meeting, so if you plan to have a discussion while viewers are in the meeting, you may want to consider muting the device.

The Conferencing System in Queen Squirrel is setup to use a kiosk mode so no user information is saved within the session.
