Video Conferencing…. From a Mobile App…. On Your Smart Phone!

The way we do business is ever changing! Sales of tablets are estimated to be about 140 million units and smartphones will make up nearly half of the global mobile phone market by 2015. Businesses are hiring employees to work remotely or telework and many more are communicating while on the go. Polycom® RealPresence® Mobile application lets you video conference right from your iPhone 4S allowing you to make faster, smarter decisions which improves customer service and helps you stay ahead of the competition! You can meet with co-workers wherever you are. E-transport employees into the meeting room for that important event and save on travel and accommodation costs. With this application you can connect with multiple parties, see them on-screen, plus you can switch the screen to view the presentation. Polycom’s video conferencing and collaboration applications are already available on desktops, laptops, iPads and Android tablets. The Polycom® RealPresence® Mobile app is a free download in the iPhone App Store and will also be available soon to Android phones. Call Century AV for more information on how this application can benefit you and enhance the use of the Video Conferencing Systems installed in your meeting facilities!

The AV and IT Merger Simplified!

Organizational and business demands on technological tools and processes to enhance operations, increase productivity, revenues and profits, have removed all operational barriers between the disciplines of AV and IT. No longer can one operate without the other and to operate in concert as the AVIT department within an organization is a fact in today’s business structure. We choose this acronym as it best describes the central elements of Audio, Visual and Information as discrete Technologies under a very broad umbrella of user technical needs.  With such internal reliance on AVIT resources, it positions this 21st century business unit to rely upon its’ service supplier as a vested partner and business advisor. In turn, todays AVIT service supplier has evolved into a technical general contractor acting as the key contact point for this mixed bag of managed services. From project design through to the billing process, todays AVIT contractor not only takes ownership in the client project, they also partner in its success.

AV and IT combined as an All-In-One Quote from Century AV!

Just about all Audio Visual technology is integrated with Information Technology systems.  Therefore, IT upgrades or additions for AV integration must be taken into consideration when planning your AV project.  Century provides IT installation and service in conjunction with your AV requirements.  The turnkey approach to your AV System Integration by the same technicians will save time and money, making the project implementation task easier.
