        How did a 10-year-old technology suddenly bring the world of video conferencing together this month?

        Microsoft Ignite had a lot of very important announcements as the company that very often leads technology introduced and debuted updates and enhancements to its ecosystem. While there will be many articles wrapping up the event, coming from the world of AV myself, one announcement can be summed up as “One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”

        There have been studies commissioned on how prevalent technology in conference rooms are and studies many times often prove what is known by many conference room users.

        Microsoft Team Rooms — Cannot Fetch Calendar

        If you have a Microsoft Teams room and are setting it up for the first time, or even had a recent update, you might have seen this banner on your system.
