Audio and visual, or A/V, communication technology is something that businesses are starting to recognize as critical to their success. It’s no secret that if a company aims to succeed and grow, it’s going to have to build connections. It has to connect with customers, with partners and with itself, as one of the challenges businesses have to overcome is ensuring its own people talk to each other. This is a lot to manage, especially without the right technology, which is why company owners and managers are turning to A/V solutions.
How can audio and visual communication improve the company’s message?
There is an A/V solution for every business and every organization. In fact, a reputable integrator will be willing to sit down with company leaders and build a custom solution. These solutions may include the following technologies:
- High-quality displays, including video walls. Displays can be used in a variety of settings, and are the optimal technology for presenting a message. In reception areas and lobbies, they can help the company promote a professional reputation. Outside, they can effectively reach out to potential customers and garner interest. Video walls are particularly impactful, as they can be scaled up to enormous sizes, making them an ideal choice for venues like sports arenas and airports.
- Conferencing systems. A/V conferencing is perhaps the ultimate audio and visual communication solution, as it facilitates meetings between groups separated by hundreds or thousands of miles. Conferencing systems are ideal for linking together with partners and for managing internal meetings. For example, a conference can pull together multiple project heads working together on a single initiative, allowing company leaders to check project status and change directions if needed. In addition to facilitating meetings, conferencing systems also reduce travel costs.
- Interactive whiteboards. Interactive whiteboards can be used in both commercial and educational settings, and they are gaining popularity quickly in schools. Interactive whiteboards allow teachers and managers to add visual impact on their lessons or presentations. The interactive nature of the whiteboard lets the presenter add notes or manipulate a piece of media for better viewing. Interactive whiteboards come with a variety of tools and games to keep people engaged in the lesson or meeting, ensuring they walk away with better information retention.
- Control systems, which make audio and visual communication technology easy to operate. Control systems provide an easy interface for users to access and operate any A/V technology. This interface is often a touch, graphic interface that is designed for intuitive use. Control systems can also be set up with multiple tiers of access, so technical personnel can be given greater control over the system.
A company can integrate one, or all, of these technologies with the help of an integrator. And once installed, a reputable professional will provide continued support and ensure it functions optimally over its lifespan.
