Corporate presentations used to follow a pretty predictable format. Speakers would address a room full of people, and maybe use a projector screen to flick through a few slides behind them. Meetings would involve a verbal discussion and some handouts. But modern workplaces require different styles of presentation, involving audiovisual options that suit the way people currently work.

Whether in schools, lecture halls, or conference rooms, it’s now widely accepted that sitting and listening to long monologues is not the best way for people to retain information. Different people learn in different ways. Visual delivery of information will be more suited to some, while others prefer to listen, read, or physically interact with information such as on a touchscreen or their handheld devices.
Audiovisual presentation allows all of those elements to be part of a teaching experience. And regardless of which method a person prefers, everybody will find multi-media meetings and presentations more engaging if there is some variety to them.
In modern conference spaces and meeting rooms, it’s common for every participant to have their own handheld device that allows them to view or share content. With good conference room AV, anybody can link their own device to a display at the front of the room and bring up content for everyone to see. Instead of saying, “I’ll get back to you with that,” anybody in the room can pull up something from their drive or the internet for all attendees to view, share, and discuss right away.
This kind of collaboration is a part of daily life in the workplace, and conference rooms that don’t allow collaboration between attendees will soon look outdated. Along with good displays for screen sharing, reliable connectivity is very important for collaboration, and any conference room AV setup needs faultless connectivity whether its wired or wireless.
Video conferencing is now used regularly in most offices. It saves time and money by avoiding the need for people to travel to meetings, and it’s well suited to people who work remotely. Having customers, clients, and colleagues in various corners of the country or even the world is also very common. In terms of relationship-building, video conferencing can be just as effective as having regular face-to-face meetings.
Video conference shouldn’t mean several people huddled around a laptop. High-level conference room AV should make video conferencing as seamless as if everyone were in the same room. It should also allow for options such as dual displays, so participants can view content while being able to see the people they are conferencing with. Good quality speakers and microphones are also an important part of office AV, whether for video conferencing or to ensure that people in the room are not distracted by audio problems.
