Smart Boardroom Technology Integrates Video Conferencing Solutions with Lighting, Shades, and More
Boardrooms are the spaces where a company’s most pressing issues are discussed and resolved and the areas where you meet with important clients or soon-to-be customers. To say it’s an integral part of your image and success would be considered, by some, an understatement.
Some standard requirements for these rooms include complete privacy, soundproofing, a large impressive table, and comfortable chairs. As our workforce continues to transform, it’s also essential to be equipped for virtual meetings and presentations. That’s where today’s boardroom technology comes in. Let’s explore the latest technology and what it can do for your San Diego, CA business.
As the saying goes, “You only get one chance to make a first impression.” When your company meets clients for the first time in a virtual setting, it’s critical to come across as professional and polished.
4K high-resolution streaming video provides crystal-clear images as if all the members are in the same room. There’s no latency or lags, just effortless collaboration and communication, whether people are in the same building or on the other side of the globe. This requires a quality display, camera, microphone, and speakers.
High-end cameras connect to computers and monitors, and the best provide a 360-degree view of the room. Smart cameras identify the person speaking, zooming in on their location and offering the “in-person” sensation.
High-resolution audio and high-definition speakers optimize the auditory experience. Just like the smart cameras that focus on who’s talking, your smart microphone tunes into the speaker while minimizing any distracting noises in the background.
In addition to using microphones for teleconferencing, they are commonly used in boardrooms to record proceedings. Because of the highly sensitive issues sometimes discussed in these rooms, it’s important to consider microphones with fully functioning mute conversation buttons that ensure sensitive conversations remain offline and audio encryption to prevent data breaches.
Lighting, Shades, and Climate Control
Integrating your video conferencing equipment with an automated system allows you to experience perfect and impressive one-touch control of all electronics in the boardroom via an intuitive touchscreen interface. When all components are integrated, your system operates seamlessly. Members walk into the boardroom that’s preset to the perfect temperature based on the time of the meeting. Motorized shades let in natural sunlight until it’s time for a presentation or conference, at which point they close silently.
The lighting adjusts based on the level of natural light in the room and then dims to the appropriate level when the video conference session begins. At the end of the meeting, all the equipment turns off, and the room shuts itself down.
