In view of current Covid-19 situation, there is an increasing need to improve online meeting conditions for seamless integration with remote participants so as to mitigate the desire to meet physically.
Today, online meetings can be carried out via various virtual meeting applications. However, different meeting participants may have different preference based on individual company policies and familiarity of usage. The integration across different applications can pose a challenge.
In situations when meeting participants are working from home or construction site office, external background noise may pose as disturbance to the meeting. Poor audio quality is also an issue where participants fail to voice their comments clearly during the meeting. In addition, participants often do not realise that either they are muted, voice are too soft or wireless earpieces have been disconnected.
In the construction sector, sharing of material samples are frequently needed for review before decisions are made. This poses a huge issue when meetings are conducted online.
