Best HP Monitors for Video Conferencing in a Hybrid Work Era

Since the recent pandemic shocked the globe, hybrid work has boomed, with more and more businesses opting for remote, on-the-go employees. Besides lowering costs, video conferencing has become integral to most office-based companies. Whether connecting with co-workers, presenting digital art, or attending virtual meetings, having a quality monitor can make a big difference. 

As a leading manufacturer of PC equipment, our monitors offer a combination of high performance and exceptional quality suitable for university students and executives alike. Stay tuned as we explore what makes a monitor great and dive into the best monitors for video conferencing so that you can elevate your virtual communication game.

What makes a monitor great for video conferencing?

In the world of online conferencing, your choice of monitor can make or break your experience. In this section, we’ll plunge into the prime aspects that make a monitor excel in video communication.

Screen clarity & resolution

When choosing monitors for virtual meetings, a clear display is simply necessary. The general rule here is that the higher the resolution, the higher the pixel density, the sharper your image. High-end monitors with premium clarity and high resolution will display a sharper, more vivid display with increased colour depth. Whether engaging in a face-to-face conversation, reading a complex spreadsheet or zooming in on your vector art design, a high-resolution monitor ensures you catch every detail.

For the best clarity, consider WQHD (Wide Quad High Definition) and 4K UHD (Ultra High Definition) displays. These provide significantly more pixels than your standard HD monitors, meaning every element on your screen is rendered with high-end clarity, making viewing images and reading text easier.

Size & adaptability for multi-tasking

A spacious screen allows you to effortlessly multi-task during a video conference. Monitors come in different sizes, from compact 23-inch displays for small spaces to extra-large 37-inch displays, which let you easily manage your applications and documents while staying engaged in your meetings.

If you’re someone who frequently juggles multiple tasks during conferences, we recommend choosing a large or extra-large screen offered by certain HP monitors. With a large screen display, you can split your screen layout into two, three or even four sections. This lets you smoothly view tabs side by side without straining your eyes.

Built-in camera & microphone quality

Built-in cameras and quality mics are some of the most vital features you should look for when choosing monitors for virtual meetings. We acknowledge the importance of smooth communication during video conversations. Having a camera on top of your computer monitor for video conferencing and a quality microphone ensures you can be seen and heard clearly. Furthermore, choosing a monitor with these features saves you money as you don’t need to buy the additional hardware.

Connectivity options

Versatile connectivity options are essential for compatibility with various devices such as cameras, laptops or microphones. Monitors for hybrid work come equipped with a range of ports, including USB-C, HDMI and DisplayPort, giving you an array of options to accommodate any device. 

USB-C offers some advantages over HDMI, including faster data transfer speeds and the ability to charge devices. Although USB-C can support 4K resolution, HDMI remains the go-to port for cameras, offering better video and audio quality.

Eye comfort technologies for prolonged use

At HP, we acknowledge the negative impacts of prolonged video conferences on your eyes, especially when it's dark. Our monitors integrate technologies like HP Eye Ease and an always-on blue light filter that limits blue light exposure without impacting colour accuracy. If you care about your eye health and sleep pattern, choosing a monitor with blue light filter tech is a must.

Enhancing the video conferencing experience

To take your conferencing experience to the next level, we recommend complementing these monitors by considering additional accessories. For example:

•    HP 320 FHD Webcam to take your video-quality game to the next stage. While many of our monitors have built-in webcams, an external camera can provide even better quality, especially in bad lighting conditions.

•    HyperX SoloCast USB Microphone for crystal-clear audio during your virtual meetings. Like our built-in cameras, our built-in microphones have great sound quality.

The HyperX Solocast Mic is a plug-and-play solution that ensures your voice comes through loud and clear in every video conference.

Tips for optimal camera place and angle

To make the most of your high-definition camera, there are certain rules we recommend you follow. Firstly, it should always be positioned at eye level. This ensures the camera captures your face evenly lit while also promoting healthy posture, which can prevent back and neck pain.

For even better results, soft diffused lighting from the front is a deal. Consider investing in a ring lamp or a desk lamp with a diffuser. You should experiment with various camera angles and find one that suits you best. Such a setup can make your conference video look like you're fit for an interview with Sky News!
