Collaboration in the Conference Room

Nov 06, 2015 by Steve Rick in  Uncategorized

The ways in which businesses and clients communicate have taken on a whole new shape in the last couple of years. With widespread innovations in technology, companies are now able to communicate in real-time with people across the globe. That in mind, it’s vital to improve the audio and visual components in your conference room.

Web Conferencing

When you are doing business across the country or across the globe, it’s difficult to get everyone in the same physical location. Thanks to web conferencing, we now have the ability to set up meetings any time of day as if everyone was face-to-face. But you can’t host a successful web conference without the right equipment. If you don’t have the capabilities of multi-camera switching, picture-in-picture or a content delivery system you’re missing out.

Audio

A few years back, a webcam with a pinhole mic was enough to get the job done. However, technology has evolved since then and audio transmission is much clearer. But this means you’ll need a higher quality mic. Don’t worry, we’ll take care of that for you!

Video

If you have web conferencing software and a decent mic, it won’t do you much good without a quality camera. Failing to use an HD camera with proper background lighting can make your company look unprofessional and outdated.

At CitiView Audio Visual we understand that meetings pop up and presenters’ needs change on-site. Our staff will respond quickly and professionally so give us a call at 212-632-5196.

“CitiView Audio Visual provided top notch equipment and service for my New York City meeting of 200 physicians. They completely understood my needs and budget and worked with me to ensure that I had the proper equipment to make my meeting a success. They worked to set-up the show on a very tight early morning timeline and their approach onsite was “all hands on deck.”  They interfaced very well with the union labor that the hotel required and it was clear that they had years of experience of working with NYC hotels.  The on-site techs were professional and courteous while working with my speakers and definitely rolled with the punches when there were last minute changes to slides.  I would definitely partner with CitiView again on future meetings.”

How To Get Better Sound From Your Speakers

Jul 14, 2015

When it comes to listening to your favorite song, there’s nothing worse than having crappy speakers or headphones. While you can spend hundreds of dollars on top-of-the-line equipment, there are a few solutions that won’t cost you a penny. Say goodbye to the days of muffled, distorted sound.

  1. Get Closer: the closer you get to your speakers, the better they will sound. Why? It minimizes the destructive effects of room reflections and tunes out some of the background noise.
  2. Change the Volume: if your speakers or headphones can handle music at high volume, try it out. Sometimes, playing music louder will make it sound better but make sure not to listen at high volume for more than 30 minutes at a time.
  3. Position the Speakers: did you know that positioning speakers with their tweeters at or very close to ear-level can make the audio sound better? If you’re setting up for an event, try to position the speakers so they will be close to the audience’s ear level.

When it comes to audio solutions in the NYC area, there’s nobody better than CitiView Audio Visual. Give us a call today at 212-632-5196 to learn more and don’t forget to connect with us on Facebook!

Bose Makes Push To Enter Kitchen Appliance Market

Jul 20, 2015

You’ve probably heard the name associated with high-quality speakers and audio equipment, but kitchen appliances? That’s right, the Bose Corporation seems to be interested in expanding their line of products to include cooktops. What does that mean for the audio giant? See below to learn more:

Bose has been a top name when it comes to the audio speaker and sound system industry for years, but who would have thought they could enter the kitchen appliances industry? They have recently filed a patent application for a “cooktop power control system” that has the ability to change the power of the burners based on desired and actual cookware temperatures.

If they do in fact create an induction cooktop, they will have to face competition from top appliance manufacturers like Samsung and GE.

We’d like to see the outcome of their desire to enter the kitchen appliance industry, but for now we’ll continue to focus on their quality sound systems and speakers.

With state of the art equipment and technology, we provide the crystal clear sound you have been searching for. So when you’re looking for audio equipment for your next event, call on the experts at CitiView Audio Visual!

I love that so many jobs can be done remotely now thanks to web conferencing. It makes it easier to find the best employees to do the job. You mention having a quality mic, and I was wondering if you have multiple people in a room will they each need one or can you have a single mic for the whole group? thanks for the help1
