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 Failing to use an HD camera with proper background lighting can make your company look unprofessional and outdated.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.

How To Fix Speaker Static

Sep 04, 2015

Picture this: you purchase a new set of speakers and are eager to try them out so you turn them on and you hear static. If you praise sound quality like we do, there’s no worse feeling than hearing fuzzy or cloudy sound. How can you fix this problem? See below for a few solutions:

  1. You may be hearing a ground loop caused by another component in the room. Try the speakers in another room along with your A/V receiver/amplifier and see if the problem persists.
  2. Try a new set of cables. Sometimes cables that aren’t properly shielded can cause interference.
  3. Invest in a power conditioner that offers isolation and surge protection.
  4. Connect the speakers themselves into the main L/R outputs of the receiver, if they sound fine you know it’s not a problem with the speakers.
  5. Check to make sure no wires are running across another electrical cord, metal duct or any other piece of equipment.

Still hearing static? Contact the experts at CitiView Audio Visual, we may be able to help you out. And if you’re looking for sound equipment for you next event, make sure to call us at 212-632-5196.

Upgrade The Tech In Your Boardroom

Oct 20, 2015

The days of flip charts, pens and paper are over. It’s time to take the technology in your office’s boardroom, or conference room, to the next level. While upgrading may cost you a few dollars up-front, it can have a huge payoff when it comes to productivity and efficiency.

Ability To Connect

In today’s day and age, who doesn’t show up to a meeting with some sort of portable device? Whether it’s a tablet, smartphone or laptop it’s important for your clients to be able to connect to your display equipment. Still using a flip chart to show graphs and notes? Sorry, this isn’t going to work any longer. Switch to a projector with HD display today and see the difference.

Collaboration Is Key

Need to get on a video call with clients or business partners across the globe? Is your conference room equipped with web streaming technology? Working collaboratively has never been easier as long as you have the right tools.

Get Rid Of The Wires

Putting on a presentation for the rest of the office? How is it going to look when you have to walk back to the computer to switch to the next slide? Get rid of the wires and grab yourself a slide advancer. These tiny remotes allow you to transition seamlessly so you can keep your audience focused and engaged.

Ready to make the upgrade? CitiView Audio Visual can make it all possible. Call us today at 212-632-5196 to learn all about our audio visual integration services.

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
