Apple Compatible Zoom Gear

Zoom For Mac Certified Accessories

For an optimal voice and video conferencing session using Zoom on MacOS, you may want the assurace of Zoom conference compatibility and certification to guide your Apple compatible conferencing hardware peripheral purchases.

Zoom Certified Mac Speakerphones

For multi-party conferencing with a group seated around a meeting table, speakerphones offer broader room coverage and echo cancellation. Many Apple compatible USB or Bluetooth Zoom speakerphones feature one or more directional mics for crystal-clear sound quality even in a large meeting room.

Zoom Compatible Mac Web Cameras

The best Zoom certified Macintosh compatible webcam options will involve a premium HD webcam that supports H.264 video compression. H.264 helps achieve optimal video conferencing frame rates, image quality, and reduced CPU overhead. Logitech ConferenceCam systems and their premium USB webcam models (C910, C920, C922, C930e) support H.264 compression, something lower-end webcams don't. Ideally the webcam will have a wider field of view in the 90 to 120 degree range if you want to cover all of a meeting table's participants.

Zoom Compatible Mac Headsets

For one-on-one online voice and video sessions an Apple compatible Zoom microphone headset assures echo-free communications that unfortunately are all to common when external speakers are involved. All-Digital USB headsets work most reliably. For Analog headsets, Mac's require a *SINGLE* 4-Pole TRRS plug, not separate speaker and mic plugs like some older Windows-only headsets have.

Zoom Optimized Mac Microphones

In select cases, a dedicated Apple compatible tabletop or desktop microphone may be the optimal choice for maximal audio quality in your Zoom session. 4-Conductor 3.5mm TRRS Analog or USB digital mics are the best choice for Mac conferences.

Zoom For Mac OSX Software Drivers

Most teleconferencing peripherals - particularly USB video and audio devices largely 'just work' when plugged into your Mac without any additional software. Zoom's own app Preferences menus can be used to select A/V input and output options. If the device is recognized in other A/V apps, it will likely work equally well in Zoom too.

Other Zoom Compatible Peripherals

Many more Zoom-friendly computer gadgets exist. For video, nearly any USB web camera that complies with the UVC - USB Video Class device specification on modern operating systems can be recognized without the need to install any OSX webcam driver software. Many conference-room speakerphones and conferencing cameras are largely hardware based, with onboard buttons or remote controls that perform conference management functions without the need for additional software.

Zoom Audio Device Compatibility

USB audio devices for input and output such as microphones, conference room speakerphones, microphones, headphones and mic headsets are automatically recognized by low-level UAC - USB Audio Class drivers included in MacOS. A quick check of your Mac OS Sound Preferences Pane may be needed to insure the external device is selected instead of your Mac's internal hardware. Do note that some MacOS friendly Zoom peripherals such as speakerphones or headsets with a call initiate/end button may not have MacOS software to detect that particular button action.
