Evolving Considerations in AV Design

Sep 2, 2022 1:43:14 PM


Advanced audiovisual technology plays a vital role, not only in leading collaboration across teams, but also in streamlining everyday business communication. Company culture is poured into via conversation, leadership, and positive feedback loops. Without an effective AV solution in place all of these things are nearly impossible. Let's face it we are reliant upon AV in today's global, and digitized world of communication. In many ways it is the most important aspect of your office technology stack. Quality AV is vital to retaining top talent and attracting new talent.

Employees that are not engaged with their clients and coworkers cost  businesses nearly $8 trillion dollars yearly. Economists estimate the impact is even greater since the pandemic started, This means that we need to provide communication pathways that are concise  and free flowing. You need modern AV technology to make certain this happens. 

Design of the AV system is key for creating conferencing solutions that meet both remote and in-person workers needs. If design is done well it enables productive, multi-purpose and flexible rooms that can accommodate large and small numbers of meeting attendees. With workers now being global, remote, and local, it places more of an emphasis on figuring out what exactly it is that makes up innovative AV design in today's landscape. IT infrastructure updates in a post pandemic world are becoming a focus for IT and facilities leaders across the globe.

AV has evolved beyond anything close to what it was just a few short years ago with racks upon racks and bulky cameras. Today, AV is more portable and BYOD than ever, with a wide range of all-in-one user-friendly products in the market that can be launched in nearly real time. Going from bulkier setups to all-in-one conference cameras that at times even include audio capabilities has streamlined AV projects and conference room revitalizations. We see fewer technical issues and less of a learning curve for users in technologies all across the board.

av systems for all 

Meeting rooms before the pandemic were dated and often had technologies that simply would malfunction often. Forget thinking about attracting talent, companies were lucky if some of the technologies in use  such as projectors or screens would stay fully functional for a 100% in-person meeting This is no longer acceptable for today’s hybrid world and does not offer employees a functional or collaborative working environment. AV conferencing room systems should be upgraded to include tools such as project management platforms, cloud services and all-in-one AV equipment such as flexible table top controls and microphones. This will excelerate productivity and streamline communication between remote and in-person workers.

Today’s AV design really stands out it is when used to bridge the gap between global attendees, remote attendees, and those in the office. Making certain that all of these groups are able to hear, engage, and see one another creating a free-flow of communication is something that AV systems just a few short years ago were not capable of. Investing in quality AV equipment for both video, audio, and control is crucial. Equipping employees with the tools to communicate effectively in the years ahead will not only be vital it will be essential to your company's bottom line and employee happiness.
