What Audio/Video Improvements Can Do For Your Organization

January 20, 2011 by  

Audiovisual isn’t just slide shows on rickety projectors anymore.  The audio video industry, like everything else, has taken a gigantic leap into the technological future.  Audiovisual systems enable a business to get their message across more effectively, because in many cases, visual presentations of information are much more memorable

Your company likely doesn’t have anyone with expertise in audio video.  It’s not uncommon to see IT specialists called in to try to set up a firm’s audio video system just because they have a basic techie background.  But real audio video specialists are engineers who can design to your company’s exacting specifications.  They do everything from hanging a projector from the ceiling of your meeting room to installing a motorized screen that comes out of the wall to programming the software that facilitates it all.  Your conference room can be transformed into a state-of-the art think tank, with all the equipment controlled by a single remote.

Seventy-five percent of all projection systems sold are for PowerPoint presentations, but audio video services range from LCD projectors to interactive whiteboards to audio and video conferencing systems that enable your staff to exchange ideas from as far away as separate continents.  Technological advances have kept pace with those in consumer electronics, with wall-hanging plasma displays that can handle inputs from different sources, including DVD and computer sources.  With all these technologies, your meetings can include interactive video, striking graphical representations of any kind of data, and information that viewers can engage with in powerful ways, whether the context is an employee in-service training, consultations with business partners or proposals to prospective customers.

The key variables in selecting audio video services are centered around what your company is going to use them for. The initial meeting with is called a “needs assessment,” and based on the information you provide, services will be designed around that.  Are the majority of your presentations based on PowerPoint, videoconferencing or computer-based training?  The number of meetings you conduct, the size of the group, and what type of presentation you are conducting should all be taken into account.
