AV Collaboration Tools for Business

Do better together.

The Internet of Things (IoT) has been dramatically changing the landscape for business over the last few years. Both the rate of adoption and advances in the software layer have been increasing at exponential rates. The result is an expectation for increased connectivity. The modern workforce expects the same experience working up the street at a coffee shop or halfway around the world as they have with colleagues when they’re in the same huddle spaces. Collaboration tools allow us to make sharing of information as fluid as possible and extend the user experience beyond just video chat. 

The tools in this category range from wireless presentation systems, which allow multiple people to locally share content, to full interactive whiteboards that can be seen from multiple locations at once – content sharing as if you were all in the same room without disruption to workflow. The same whiteboard experience can be sent real-time to remote participants on their laptops, or other digital whiteboards. With all parties interacting with the content in real-time you can ensure the message sent is the message received.

How it's used

Wireless Presentation Systems

These gateways allow you to connect your laptop or mobile device to a larger display without plugging in. Some gateways allow for multiple people to connect simultaneously so you can share more, faster in a single workspace.

  • Extron ShareLink

Digital Whiteboards

Hold virtual meetings in remote meeting spaces with parties located anywhere in the world and share information as if you were all in the same room, working off the same whiteboard.  This is a great option for enabling cost-effective collaboration rooms for both fully remote teams or in a hybrid workplace.

Room Connectivity

When video conferencing, sometimes you just need to take what’s on your laptop and share it with a larger audience. Use familiar software like Zoom or Skype with audio visual solutions such as a built-in room camera, display, and audio systems. We offer several meeting room AV solutions for exactly these needs.

Our approach to AV collaboration tools for business

Collaboration technology can be a difficult thing to navigate, but our approach is simple: help you make sense of what’s available and deploy AV systems that will be adopted by even the most non-technical users.

We consult with our clients to discuss communication & collaboration space requirements on every project. This is most often a conversation with leadership or technical teams, but frequently becomes an end-user study to assess needs. From there, our clients generally spend time exploring the options hands-on to understand what the technology can do for them and determine functionality needs vs what sounds nice to have.

Sometimes the needs and solutions are simple and we have extensively engineered technology solutions ready to go – but for a more unique use case, our engineers will design complete AV systems around the specific requirements. Once installed our support team works to train end-users, and deliver any required reference materials and documentation.
