With a Delo connection manager installed in the room you, get it all through just one USB-C cable.

BYOD stands for Bring Your Own Device which commonly means you should bring your own laptop or other device to a meeting. This was a common way of having meetings when all participants used to be in the same room. Here, you share your display to the other people in the room or if you have a video conferencing system installed in the room you can share content from your device to that meeting.

BYOM stands for Bring Your Own Meeting meaning you also bring your meeting platform, such as Zoom, Teams or Google Meet along with your device. With this way of working, you use the platform you like instead of having an in-room video conferencing system. With Delo connection manager you will be able to access all meeting room equipment such as cameras, speakers and microphones and use them for your meeting, regardless of platform.

No, there is no need for a video conferencing system in the room to use the Delo connection manager. If your room has a video conference system, you can choose to connect the Delo connection manager and use the HDMI-ingest function to share your screen in the meeting. You can also switch between the in-room system and a BYOM setup if you have a meeting on another platform and want to use the in-room cameras, speakers, and microphones in that meeting.

A wireless connection is not always as stable as a wired connection. With USB-C cables you can always be sure to get the speed and reliability you need to stream your content. You can also be sure you won’t run out of battery. If you instead use a wireless system, you will have to connect your device to a power adapter removing the only benefit with a wireless system. Having Delo connection manager mounted to the table also means no dongle can leave the room when your meeting participants forget to unplug after the meeting. Unlike many other systems, you can use the Delo without having to install any software application on your laptop – it’s true plug and play! If you still want to use a wireless product, you can choose to connect this to the Delo connection manager. This way you will have a hybrid solution with the benefits of both a wired and a wireless system.
