Video is the challenge for business networks in 2012! Can Yours Handle It?

Video, especially live video conferencing is rapidly becoming the preferred method of communication according to experts at a recent round table discussion about factors driving change to corporate networks. Live web conferencing is a solution that brings people together from multiple locations to share information with multiple users over the Internet. The speed and efficiency of today’s Internet along with the development of more intuitive products have made this technology an essential part of daily business activities, and will enhance the way business is conducted. Companies are rapidly looking at HD video options, interactive options, and the possibility of corporate mobility options via Android or Apple's tablet and smartphone devices. It was noted that 92% of Fortune 500 companies are now testing tablets in their organizations. Companies need to look at their network infrastructure and the added burden this will place on networks as video applications become more sophisticated. They will need to focus on preparing for the era of mass video communication as a native technology and build it into every facet of their business. At Century AV, we have noticed an increasing trend towards projects related to upgrading Video equipment.

More AV Tips to Help Organize Your Next Meeting or Event!

In our last issue we talked about how important Audio Visual is to your meeting or event! Our Century AV tech will ensure that the proposed meeting space will accommodate AV setup and production, lighting (if required) and take into consideration AV hazards like low ceilings and reflective windows or mirrors that might interfere with the effect of your presentation.  We also mentioned creating an “Event AV Checklist” to help keep everything organized during the preparation of your event and to ensure nothing is overlooked. We are still going to deliver but it’s taking a bit longer than we expected to get it just right! We’re taking the extra time to give a more polished, user friendly checklist to help make event planning easier, less stressful and help you deliver a more professional product. We’ll share it in the next issue of Be Tech Savvy!
