Communication at the Speed of Technology
Our audio-visual design group specializes in providing enterprise level AV solutions for small, medium and large businesses, government entities and house of worship properties. With a wide variety of technologies and solutions at our disposal from the leading manufacturers in the industry, we are well equipped to design and implement the AV solutions that modern operations demand.
The traditional approach is the in-room hard codec system. The term codec is a combination word for coder and decoder. A hardware codec translates the signals to the video processor which drives a video conferencing solution. In hard codec AV solutions, the equipment, or hardware, will be physically located in the conference room, discreetly installed in a credenza or closet rack. The benefit of the hardware codec audiovisual solution is the exceptional video quality and professional sound.
If you require the ability for participants to be able to attend remotely from their workstations, tablet or smartphone, rather than to convene in a centralized conference room, then you need a soft codec solution. These AV solutions are driven by cloud-based software codecs with endpoints installed on the employee’s laptop, workstation tablet, and smartphone. The benefit of this approach is that your video conferencing can be extended to where your colleagues are located rather than being confined to a specific conference room.
Today’s nimble businesses require collaborative rooms that allow small groups of employees to work together utilizing state of the art audio, video and collaborative displays. Creating multiple huddle rooms in the space traditionally set aside for a large conference room means employees can spontaneously grab a collaboration space without interrupting the ideation flow.
The first characteristic of these huddle rooms are the types of displays that are available. If you require an interactive display, where your employees can collaboratively engage, annotate, save and distribute notes, then you can implement the latest in “smart” interactive technology from vendors like CleverTouch, ClearTouch and Viewsonic. Conversely, non-interactive displays offer a variety of solutions for displaying high-resolution content to your teams to be used for presentation and/or discussion purposes. Regardless of the type of display needed, our team will size the display to fit a variety of room sizes and configurations.
In addition to the proper display, we offer all in one AV Furniture options that are perfect for smaller, collaborative spaces. These intelligently designed furniture solutions conveniently and discreetly integrate all of your state-of-the-art audio, video, and power components.
We also offer a number of Room Control options that allow you to control power, AV source, and conferencing, from a single, sleek touchscreen control mechanism.
No Huddle Room would be complete without Wireless Presentation Solutions. Now, your employees can bring their own device (BYOD) to the huddle room and quickly connect to the existing AV solutions to share their work with teammates without the distraction of locating a myriad of connection dongles.

Amazing Meeting Spaces
Having an amazing meeting space is irrelevant if you cannot consistently get your team scheduled for it. Since you have taken the time to design and implement great huddle spaces and collaborative conference rooms, then you need a proper room scheduling solution.
Your fast-paced work schedule requires a room scheduling solution that can keep up with you. Seamless integration into existing enterprise calendaring systems is a critical component of these systems. We use systems that integrate with your MS Exchange™, Office 365™ and G Suite™ (formerly Google Apps for Work), or other popular calendaring solutions.
Stylish and Smart
You can also add a distinctive touch of style with these integrated touch screens that support and facilitate your room scheduling. Check availability of all rooms on your network from the conveniently located digital devices. Quickly view meeting locations and details to make sure you are at the right place at the right time. Book ad hoc meetings from the room scheduling panel, which will then report back to the calendaring system that the room is no longer available for the duration of your gathering.
Make Efficient Use of Your Space
Another problem with meeting room availability is canceled meetings that are not removed from the calendar. Often, recurring meetings are created, then abandoned for one reason or another. Occupancy sensors allow the room scheduling system to relinquish the space if it is unoccupied for a specified amount of time; even removing recurring meetings from the calendar if a specified number of meetings are dropped.
If you are monitoring enterprise-class business operations such as data centers and other control rooms you need the ability to clearly display data and video. Adding a video wall solution to your monitoring room will give you crystal clear LED and LCD digital displays that can be customized to your available space.
These video wall solutions can also facilitate collaboration for multiple employees in multiple locations. Now you can see real-time data and video feeds from all your critical operations from the convenience of a consolidated view screen. These capabilities are critical to meeting the high demands of large-scale monitoring systems.
Lastly, videowalls can be used as a dramatic focal point for art, company branding or other impressive visual displays.
Offering a wide range of sizes, these displays offer customizable viewing across multiple screens. There are several technologies and resolutions to meet the most demanding visual needs.

Ditch Dry-Erase, Go Digital
Typically, large spaces to accommodate significant groups of people, training rooms have very specific AV requirements to function properly. First, the content must be displayed at a size that everyone from the front to the back of the room can clearly see. Usually, this is accomplished using a projection system that is bright enough for viewing even in high ambient light situations. Occasionally, additional projection and LED Display systems are necessary for everyone to view the presentation clearly. Training rooms often offer confidence monitors for the presenter allowing them to stay engaged with their audience.
Next, audio enhancement is necessary to understand the presenter in every seating area in the room. Often, we equip the speaker podium with a mic. Wireless lavalier mics or pendant mics are also an option for users that like to move around the stage. We engineer the appropriate number and spacing of ceiling speakers for comfortable, audible volume levels throughout the room.
Interactive displays allow students and teachers to work together on presented material. Also, the presenter can electronically distribute notes generated during these discussions to the entire group.
Last, we equip many training rooms with distance learning capabilities. Sessions are offered to remote participants via video conferencing equipment. Top of the line, pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) cameras automatically focus on the speaker allowing users to fully engage with the meeting content, not the AV equipment. Two-way communication and collaboration tools allow remote participants to fully engage with the lessons.
