If your company does business in multiple different locations, whether within the same city or around the whole world, an audio-visual system can make the process of managing meetings, training sessions, lectures, speeches, and other types of gathering easier and more effective.
Here are a few features to consider looking for when investing in a new audio-visual system for your business.
A Pan-Tilt-Zoom Camera
It's a good idea to make sure that our new audio-visual system comes with at least one pan-tilt-zoom camera. This type of camera is designed to tilt up and down, back and forth, throughout the room so that multiple room angles can be seen through the screen or screens broadcasting your meeting, training session, lecture, or announcement. The camera can also zoom in and out, making it possible to highlight products, tools, paperwork, or other visual items that you want meeting attendees to see.
Your business will also likely benefit from mobile microphones while engaging with your new audio-visual system. Instead of having to work around where the microphones are located, the microphones can be effortlessly moved where they are needed so that everyone participating in your meetings, speeches, and training sessions can be clearly heard. Mobile microphones can still be affixed to stands, hung from the ceiling, and attached to the wall when necessary.
Screen Sharing Software
The speaker of a meeting or training session may want to share slides and other types of visual information with all participants no matter where they are in the world. In order for this to effectively happen, the screen that the presenter is using must be broadcast to the screens that everyone else is watching on. Screen-sharing software can help ensure that everyone attending your meetings from anywhere in the world can see visual effects up front and center.
Online Training Courses
To ensure that you and everyone within your organization know how to use your new audio-video system, it is important that everyone gets proper training. The system you buy should come with online training courses that everyone in your business can take to get acquainted with the system before using it for the first time. At the very least, you should be able to upload training videos to your company's intranet so that employees can access them at any given time.
It's always a good idea to schedule a consultation appointment with an audio-visual retailer to get thorough information about your options and to get recommendations about the types of features that will benefit your business overall.
