Pictures is the overall schematic. Hang a 65" or better TV on the wall with a small NUC media PC behind it and connect in to the Konftel 800 system as a Microsoft recognized speaker and microphone device.

The NUC PC connections are;

  • USB web camera.
  • Ethernet connection to your network
  • HDMI to TV
  • Keyboard & mouse Bluetooth dongle
  • 50' power USB cable run to the Konftel 800 on your conference table

Konftel 800

This sits in the middle of your conference table. Two cables are run from this device through the center of the table;

  • an ethernet cable to your computer network. This allows the device to act as s SIP conference device on audio only calls.
  • a 50 foot active USB cable to your PC. This provides a Microsoft speaker and microphone device (connection) to your PC.

Mic Expansion

Left: Add two external microphones to a single Konftel 800. This creates a five (5) mic system

Right: Network three Konftel 800 units together. This creates a (9) nine mic system.

Web Camera

We use a Microsoft camera mounted above the TV or a tiny "invisible" camera mounted on the edge of the conference table. The camera connects to the PC using a USB cable and appears as a Microsoft camera.

The microphone is disabled soas to not compete with the conference system.

Finally put plenty of soft materials all around. Carpet on the floor, fabric pictures, hanging banners, plants, etc.
