Hardware for teleconferencing and videoconferencing is installed in meeting rooms. Typically, such hardware has several settings, e.g., microphone sensitivity, speaker volume, display contrast, etc. Such settings are manually entered or changed upon entry of participants in a meeting. Settings change frequently based on the preferences of different users of the meeting rooms. Each change requires participants to perform manual actions during a meeting. It is also possible that multiple meeting participants in a room disagree on settings.
Techniques of this disclosure enable automatically setting meeting room equipment parameters based on user preferences. Personal meeting room settings are stored locally on a mobile device of meeting participants. These settings are automatically applied to meeting room equipment when a user is present in the meeting room. Further, the techniques can automatically resolve conflicting settings across multiple participants. Settings for meeting room equipment are seamlessly personalized for meeting participants.
