Meeting and Conference Room Technology Solutions for a High-Tech, High-Productivity Collaboration Space
Whiteboards, speakerphone, and projectors were once the pinnacle of meeting room technology, but innovations have driven technology far beyond these options. So, if it’s been a few years since you’ve evaluated your company’s meeting room technology, it might be time to upgrade. Take a look at some of the newest conference room technologies available that can help save you money, streamline your collaborative process, and maximize the productivity of your meetings.
Large Screen TVs and Digital Projectors
Overhead projectors are now being replaced by large screen, high definition TVs connected to computers for easy displays that are clearer than ever. For companies that require larger viewing screens, many have switched to digital projectors with higher definition. Either way, using presentations and visuals can be easier than ever before.
Content Sharing Devices and Programs
With the availability of cloud technology, document sharing, and real-time content sharing, collaborating in a meeting is easier than ever. Rather than waiting for an email to come through or having to send documents back and forth to see others’ ideas, everyone can access a document at the same time in a meeting, discuss suggestions, and streamline the process. Whether participants are across the table or across the globe, meetings become more efficient than ever with the right content sharing technology in your conference room.
Video conferencing can save your company thousands of dollars on travel expenses. With properly angled microphones and video cameras, everyone in your meeting can see and hear each other more clearly, which is far better than just using a speakerphone. It’s the next best thing to being in person. With video conferencing, you can maximize collaboration thanks to a fuller range of communication; no more missing out on facial expressions, gestures, and the other facets of human communication.
Traditional whiteboards are great for jotting ideas down in a meeting, but once you erase them, they’re gone, and – aside from taking a picture with your phone and sending it to your computer – there’s no easy way to share, save, or print your notes from these. Even the most basic smart whiteboards allow you to share and save your work, while some of them even connect with video conferencing and content sharing technology. Many also have features for manipulating documents and interacting with other programs in a whole new way. Plus, some smart whiteboards allow you to scroll, so you have more room to work with.
Whether those cables are unsightly and unprofessional, they’re a safety hazard, or even if it’s just annoying having to switch cables when changing devices, more and more companies are moving their meeting rooms into the wireless era. With Bluetooth and other wireless technology and apps, conference rooms can be equipped to connect devices to televisions or digital projectors for easy sharing and collaboration.
