Are Conference Room Microphones Necessary?

Microphone

Conference room microphones are absolutely necessary because people respond negatively to poor audio quality. In fact, it’s worse than that, according to a study published by the University of South California and the Australian National University. The study determined that poor audio quality sabotages a meeting and makes the speaker appear less likeable, less intelligent and what they’re saying less important.

Research studies aren’t needed to demonstrate the importance of audio quality, though. Consider that during a video conference, a slight hit to video quality may mean little, especially if everyone can still make out things like gestures and body language. However, even a small drop in audio quality will mean some words are missed, some ideas miscommunicated, and that’s all it takes to ruin a conference.

What Are The Benefits Of A Sound Bar In The Workplace?

Sound bars boost audio clarity in some commercial settings

Though usually considered a consumer technology, sound bars are also effective in many commercial settings. That’s because a sound bar enhances audio quality, compared to a display’s onboard speakers, improving the flow and impact of meetings. According to a 2012 study published in the Journal of the Audio Engineering Society, audio quality is more important than video quality in how a meeting is perceived. That study found that people were more likely to consider a meeting productive if audio quality was high, even when video quality was marginal. A sound bar helps ensure this degree of audio quality, especially in smaller meeting spaces. Continue reading “What Are The Benefits Of A Sound Bar In The Workplace?”

Conference room speakers: Bringing the sound

Clear audio is essential to engaging an audience, and conference room speakers deliver that audio to everyone in attendance. Most people underestimate how difficult it is to get sound from one end of a meeting room to the other, clearly and concisely. Poor acoustics, ambient noise and an unfocused presenter can all adversely affect sound quality, but with the addition of conference room speakers, it is much easier to resolve these issues and improve the meeting experience.

Is Your Network Ready For The Future?

Multi Person Video Conferencing

Is your company’s network ready for the future of A/V technology?

When considering whether your network is ready for the future, the primary factor is bandwidth. Backbone A/V technologies, including video conferencing systems, have improved greatly in recent years, but those improvements in call quality come with a bandwidth tradeoff. High definition video makes significant demands on a network, including enterprise networks that are churning through mountains of data every day. Insufficient bandwidth is a common issue among companies, then, and a lack of bandwidth can bring video calls, among other data-using services, to a halt. While that’s unacceptable, it is avoidable. With a deep analysis of the company’s data usage, it’s elementary for companies to make the needed upgrades or the needed reductions in usage.

Why Should You Have A Service Agreement After Your Installation?

A/V installation is only the beginning

 

Hours have been poured into planning and days spent on installation, so now that the new A/V system is in place, why not protect that investment? A service agreement through a reputable integrator is what will keep that technology running and optimized. Even the most intelligently planned and installed A/V system will eventually experience some form of failure. While it may happen when nothing critical is going on, it may also happen the day before the CEO is set to make an address to the entire company. Not a good look.
