2 tips for business owners who plan to have audiovisual equipment fitted in their meeting rooms

If you are upgrading the meeting rooms on your business premises by having some audiovisual equipment fitted in them, the tips provided here could be helpful.

1. Ensure the audiovisual equipment package you pick suits your business

Rather than picking a generic audiovisual equipment package, you should ensure that the one you go for suits your business. For example, if you routinely work on collaborative projects with other companies, then you should opt for an audiovisual system that comes with an interactive 'smart' whiteboard. This is a touchscreen digital whiteboard that, when you write or draw on it, can deliver the information instantly to another digital whiteboard or computer in a different location. This can make it much easier to brainstorm and share ideas with other companies in far-off places, in real-time, instead of sending notes via email and then having to wait around for responses.

Similarly, if you have employees who work remotely but often need to take part in your meetings, it would be sensible to ensure your audiovisual package includes some video conferencing equipment with high-quality audio. This will make it easier for you and your other staff members who partake in the meetings to communicate with these remote workers and will minimise the chance of the meeting participants misunderstanding each other or important elements of your business projects.

2. Prep for the audiovisual installation process

You may need to prepare for the installation of the audiovisual equipment you select. For example, you should move any sideboards or chairs in your meeting rooms away from the walls where you're planning to have your screens and video conferencing cameras installed. Additionally, if any meetings are scheduled to occur on the day of the installation, you should ensure that they are either rescheduled or held in a different section of the premises. If you forget to do this, a large number of your employees may arrive at the meeting rooms where the installation crew is working, and then disrupt and distract these people.

Finally, if you won't be in the building when the equipment is being installed, you should leave notes in the meeting rooms that clearly indicate which walls the installation team should mount the screens or cameras to. This will spare you (and them) the hassle of having to get them to come back and change the location of this equipment.
