Buyers Guide: How to Select a Monitor for Video Conferencing

To help you make the best decision when selecting your new monitor for video conferencing our team has put together a brief guide covering some of the key features and points you should consider. 


Dual Monitors

Many users nowadays want to make use of dual monitor set-ups. If you are one of these individuals then you will want to determine whether the monitors you are currently reviewing are compatible with this style of set-up. That includes having VGA or HDMI connections, as well as dual display capabilities, luckily the bulk of the monitors we reviewed should be ready to connect to another.


Mounting and Stands

Depending on your use case you will want to ensure your monitor either has a solid, adjustable stand that can sit ontop a desktop or a Vesa mount so you can easily attach it to an arm or wall mount.

Not all stands are made equal, you will want to ensure your monitor stand has both height and back and forth adjustability, as well as weight in it’s base. 


Screen Resolution

When reviewing monitors screen resolution is an important factor, most lower end to mid-tier monitors will include a 1080p HD display, while more expensive options will include 4k (and in some case even higher).

The higher the resolution the better quality of the video and playback, which makes the video experiences significantly better overall. Though the trade-off is that the better resolution costs more. Something to consider if you are truly looking for the best monitor for video conferencing.


Display Type

Choosing the right display type can be extremely important if you will be doing a lot of graphic design, or video editing on this monitor. The two main display types include LED and LCD. It’s often found that LED based monitors have a much broader colour range while LCD tend to be brighter.


Size of Room

If you are considering a dedicated video conferencing solution for an office or meeting room and want to install a monitor on a wall than you will need to factor in the size of the room when selecting your monitor size.

This will ensure you strike a balance and get the appropriately sized display for proper viewing compatibility. 


Budget

Last but not least you will want to think about your budget and what you and your business can afford. If you need additional hardware beyond a monitor for video conferencing consider that as well when thinking about your budget.

We ultimately suggest going with the best quality you can afford though as the benefits usually outweigh the cons.
