BYOM, Bring Your Own Meeting

There’s a new acronym we’re learning, BYOM, Bring Your Own Meeting.  No longer are meeting participants bringing their own devices simply to push content – they’re bringing the meeting itself.  Our enterprises and institutions may have a supported platform (Teams, Zoom, or Webex perhaps) and rooms with fancy touchscreens, but when I’m the meeting host, I want what’s familiar.  Nothing is more familiar than my laptop, and all the conference room needs to supply me with are peripherals, a camera and display, a microphone and some loudspeakers.  The technology is simple, costs are reduced, and support requirements are minimized.  For one manufacturer’s take on the subject, see this video
