Upgrade The Tech In Your Boardroom

Oct 20, 2015 by Steve Rick in  Uncategorized

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.

The Future of Audio News

Jun 16, 2015

If you had to guess the most popular way people listen to audio in their cars which method would you choose? With so many options, from satellite radio to smartphone streaming, chances are you wouldn’t choose traditional terrestrial radio, right? After all, more and more new cars are making it possible to connect to the internet where you can access just about anything, and we mean anything!

While some believe traditional radio news is on the verge of becoming obsolete, others “see an opportunity to reshape how news and information are conveyed,” according to Current. However, listening to traditional radio news may not be as traditional as you may think. Rivet Radio has created an app accessible via iOS and Android devices where users can set preferences and create news playlists based on what they want to hear as well as their location.

It’s important to keep in mind that we spend lots of time traveling via automobile and we all need something to keep us busy. Although advancements in technology are fast and ever changing, I’m sure we can all agree that we will continue listening to audio in our cars for years and years to come.

Why It’s Important To Know Your Audience

Sep 29, 2015

Do you know your audience? This is one of the most important aspects of putting on a presentation especially when it comes to delivering a message for your company. After all, the company’s direction and your own career might depend on how the audience reacts. Find out what you need to know before you deliver your next presentation below:

There’s a very fine line between putting on a successful presentation and one that fails miserably. If you do well, you could get a promotion or open up a door to a new job and a new life, but if your presentation doesn’t have the impact you had hoped for you could find yourself in a world of trouble. So, what’s one of the first steps in the right direction? Knowing your audience size and becoming familiar with your surroundings are key starting points.

Whether it’s your friends, a couple of coworkers, or the president and board of directors knowing who your audience is will determine the approach you need to take. It’s vital to understand the level of formality and the types of people you will be speaking to so you can properly prepare.

Now that you know the types of people that will be listening to you present, you should also find out how large the audience will be. This information can help you stay focused and give you an idea about how to plan for the actual presentation. If it’s a large audience, you can prepare to speak clearly and directly with little interruptions, but if you have a smaller audience it’s a good idea to pause for questions throughout.

Where is this meeting taking place? Becoming familiar with the room will help you prepare, especially when it comes to the equipment you’ll need. If it’s a large conference room or auditorium you may want to consider displaying your presentation on screens for the whole audience to see and you might consider a microphone and speakers so it can be heard. Not sure what you’ll need? Don’t worry, that’s where we come in.

Collaboration in the Conference Room

Nov 06, 2015

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.
