Business teams collaborate with video conferencing.

Overcome Technical Issues With More Modern AV Solutions

Over the past two years, buzzwords like 'hybrid teams' and 'remote work' have overtaken the business landscape. If your organization isn't practicing either of these, then you may have ignored the growing technology concerns connected to these new ways of working. However, it's important to note that the broader business community's communication expectations have also undergone a significant shift as a result of these workplace trends.

For instance, video conferencing has taken precedence over phone calls, and virtual collaboration is now more popular than printed handouts. If your conference room AV system can’t keep up with the changing times, it may be time for an upgrade.

1. Poor Audio and Video Quality

The first sign of an aging AV system is declining audio and video quality. Have you ever been in a meeting where team members are straining to hear the speaker or where the visuals are unclear? These are both tell-tale signs that your AV setup is going out of style. 

A low-quality audio-visual experience can lead to miscommunications, frustrations, and decreased productivity. Modern AV solutions, however, deliver crystal-clear audio and high-definition video for a positive communication experience that is the next best thing to in-person.

2. Frequent Technical Issues

Another sign of an outdated system is experiencing constant technical issues. Are you often waiting on hold with tech support because of system glitches during meetings? Or spending time trying to get the AV system up and running again? These frequent technical issues not only disrupt the meeting flow but also impact any decision-making processes, not to mention the toll they take on employee morale. 

When you upgrade to a modern AV system, you’ll be provided with a user-friendly interface and reliable hardware that minimizes the chances of technical difficulties. 

3. Lack of Integration Possibilities

The final sign that your AV system might not be up to today’s standards is if it is unable to integrate with the current technology landscape. With remote work and the widespread practice of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), your conference room needs to be compatible with a range of devices and platforms so employees and visitors can participate. If your system doesn't support features like wireless presentations, screen sharing, or video conferencing platforms, it clearly indicates that an upgrade is due.

Address these common issues by upgrading your conference room AV setup to a more modern solution that meets today’s workplace needs and facilitates optimal collaboration.
