If you're doing hybrid meetings it's worth investing in some good multi-directional microphones and not relying on some poor bastard's laptop.
We were doing these pre-pandemic and still do them now and if you have good audio kit (we have some spendy Sennheiser shit shrugs) then it makes a huge difference.
We also have a couple of boxes of these, so people could take them around to desks or different meeting spaces:
and we had some of these as well:
But I don't remember if they were any good. Maybe a bit better than laptop audio.
Yes, turns out IT had one of those puck speaker/microphone things which made it a bit better (although no USB extension cable to actually get it into the middle of the room).
We just had a standard webcam though which meant that half of the room was cut off from the video.
All a bit bodged together.
Yeah, we have a new office which has proper AV rooms. The old one had little cameras under bigscreen TVs which worked reasonably well. It's the audio that's the tricky part.
