Set up your meeting room

You can collaborate and whiteboard with Jamboard in small or large rooms. In larger meeting spaces, you can pair Jamboard with supported peripherals or Hangouts Meet hardware. Learn more about supported peripherals or pairing with Hangouts Meet hardware.

For the best audio experience during video meetings, set up the Jamboard:

  • 8–12 feet away from the farthest seated speaker
  • With 5 feet of space in front of the board
  • With an ethernet connection

Setups for small rooms (2–4 people)

We recommend using Jamboard as a standalone device in smaller brainstorming spaces. Here are some example room setups.

Key:

  • (y) Floor to bottom edge of display - 39 in / 99 cm
  • (x - xx) Seated distance for video - up to 5–8 ft / 1.5–2.4 m
  • (not marked) Seated distance for audio - up to 12 ft / 3.7 m

Here is a soft seating collaboration space where the Jamboard is mounted on the wall:

Key:

  • (y) Floor to bottom edge of display - 39 in / 99 cm
  • (x–xx) Seated distance for video - up to 5–8 ft / 1.5–2.4 m
  • (not marked) Seated distance for audio - up to 12 ft / 3.7 m

Here is a more traditional meeting room. Jamboard is mounted on the wall with a Logitech® MeetUp ConferenceCam placed above it for audio and video:

Setups for large rooms (5 or more people)

For rooms that seat 5 or more people, we recommend using audio and video peripherals. You can assign Jamboard to a Hangouts Meet hardware device when you need more videoconferencing functionality. Learn more about supported peripherals.
