What Is a Board Room?

board room

A board room is a conference room used for meetings between the company’s Board of Directors and senior management. These meetings are used to discuss important issues and the directors are responsible for ensuring that decisions are taken by the company in line with the interests of shareholders. In spoken communication, ‘boardrooms may also refer to events that are thought to be taking place in the boardroom of a business organization even though they are not actually happening in one.

A boardroom can be found in any building, but it is usually located within the corporate offices. It can seat up to twenty people. It’s usually equipped with large touchscreens that can be used for visual presentations in meetings. An agenda is usually given out in advance to ensure that attendees are aware of what they can expect.

When not in use, most board rooms have cabinets that are able to store audio-visual equipment. A typical boardroom set-up will include a doc cam and Blu-ray player, an LCD display and projector. Depending on the dimensions and layout of the room, it could be necessary for several screens to be put in place along with an Extron DVS605 Plus scaling switcher to accommodate different sources. In addition to the AV equipment, many boardrooms also have a video conference setup that lets attendees take part from locations other than the meeting venue.
