Increase Collaboration and Productivity with Smart Technology
In the last few years, conference room technology has taken the spotlight. What was once considered a stopgap became a primary means of creating a collaborative workforce, increasing productivity and retention rates, and reducing costs. But, as with most rapid growth spurts, pain points emerged, and smarter technology stepped in to ease the discomfort.
Let’s explore the issues that intelligent meeting rooms are solving and what today’s conference room setup offers businesses in San Diego, CA.

A smart conference room setup aims to create a space where remote and onsite teams can come together to brainstorm, stakeholders can make vital decisions in a comfortable and professional setting, and staff and management can meet virtually and on site with current or potential clients. When technology doesn’t operate smoothly or predictably, businesses are left with wasted time and a downturn in a client’s perception of the company.
One of the main difficulties and disruptions companies face is problems with connectivity. Nothing is more frustrating than setting up for a meeting and finding connectivity issues due to HDMI or AV cables. In addition, outdated conference room technology leads to incompatible devices, including smartphones and tablets.
Some other common problems include blurry visuals and choppy audio from older displays, microphones, and speakers. Additionally, older technology often makes it difficult to determine who is speaking and limits engagement from remote participants. Rooms without adequate interactive technologies can also lead to reduced collaboration, participation, and content sharing.
Companies today are prioritizing their conference rooms, with a high percentage budgeting for updated technology. They are creating dynamic video conferencing solutions that make participants feel like they’re in the same room and actively engaged.
Setting up a modern meeting room requires cameras with pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) capabilities, speaker tracking technology, and smart framing. These ensure everyone knows who’s talking while still seeing all the participants. Enterprise-grade cameras also include 4K HD resolutions and a wide field of view.
A state-of-the-art 4K UHD display screen has become standard equipment, with larger rooms possessing two displays, one to share content and the other to display remote participants. High-quality microphones and in-wall or in-ceiling speakers ensure crystal-clear audio without feedback or echo. Our certified technicians at Andrus Smart Technologies provide strategic installation and calibration and can make recommendations based on the room size, participant level, and budget.
An integrated room control system ties everything together and creates a comfortable and professional setting. These systems offer one-touch control for connecting participants, starting the AV equipment, lowering shades, dimming lights, and adjusting the climate. When the meeting’s over, the room returns to its prior state. For rooms that double as boardrooms or client meeting spaces, we can hide the technology behind paintings or mirrors and in ceilings or floors and integrate its retrieval into the room control system.
