Provide ‘Meeting Equity’ to In-Person & Remote Participants 

We’ve come a long way from flip charts and overhead projectors in the conference room. And truthfully, we’re far past simply hooking up a USB or computer to host presentations. What happens in the conference room isn’t isolated anymore—we need a way to connect and share with remote participants and revisit ideas later. 

When hybrid meetings began, remote workers were often left out during in-person meetings. Now, as hybrid work becomes more prevalent, in-room attendees are often at a disadvantage, unable to see screen-sharing features or capture their voice and face clearly over video. 

But with the latest conference room AV solutions, it’s entirely possible to bring ‘meeting equity’ to your calls—that is, ensure everyone can equally participate, whether they’re in the room or not.  

See all that’s new and noteworthy in the world of conferencing AV for your New Orleans business below.

Why Should You Avoid a One-Size-Fits-All Conference Room?

Find a Conference Room AV Solution that Matches Your Company Needs

Every business can benefit from a collaborative space to share ideas amongst employees or introduce new clients to your products. Though many companies offer one-size-fits-all conference room AV solutions, there are several reasons you'll want to opt for a custom one in your New Orleans, LA office.

Space limitations and room responsibilities will vary from boardroom to boardroom, so why shouldn’t your technology reflect that? Each section of this blog highlights ways a one-size-fits-all solution could fall short along the way.

It Won’t Match Your Space

Even though many companies still use traditional boardrooms that sit 10-15 people, they’re no longer the norm. Recently, many companies are transitioning to huddle room spaces with five to ten people instead. Opting for a one-size-fits-all solution could result in a display that is too big for a small space or microphones and speakers that can’t fill out a larger one.

For optimal results, you want a conference room AV solution designed with your space's size and layout in mind. With the ideal number and arrangement of speakers and microphones, everyone will hear without feedbacks or echoes. Optimize your display size, placement and resolution, so everyone has a clear view of the screen.

It Won’t Match Your Company

Do you want to use your conference room just for video calls or for brainstorming sessions as well? Do you plan on using the room for training or even podcast recordings? Most one-size-fits-all solutions come with pretty basic AV and collaboration tools. Will that be enough for your company?
