Why You Need to Update Your Commercial AV System
The business world today is centered around technology. An outdated AV system can negatively impact your business. By updating your system, you can significantly improve collaboration, save money and impress clients. Let’s look at some of the reasons why it’s so important to keep your AV system up-to-date:
Time & Money
Older equipment may lack the HDMI and USB ports, may not support current software and are generally harder to use with newer technology. By updating your current system, you will significantly decrease the amount of time it takes to set up and reduce the need to troubleshoot problems. Not to mention that you won’t need fully trained IT personnel to operate it. Newer automated systems are designed so that anyone can operate them with minimal setup time and no guesswork. Talk to your integrator about setting up an integrated control system that will allow you to quickly and easily turn on and off equipment, control volume, set up a video conference, connect additional equipment and more. As the old saying goes, time is money and new technology will save you both!
You don’t want to have to modify your presentation because your current system doesn’t support certain media or equipment or, face dealing with a video that won’t play in the middle of an important presentation. Reliability is key in the business world and updating your equipment to make sure it can keep up with current trends is so very important. A new AV system can give you peace of mind that things will work as they are supposed to when they are supposed to.
Make an Impression
First impressions are everything and as you well know, that’s especially important in the business world. You’re AV system is central to making that first impression by demonstrating to your clients that you have a good handle on things. A smooth presentation and an AV system that demonstrates that you are innovative and cutting-edge are key in impressing your clients.
You may be thinking it’s time to upgrade. Make sure you contact an integrator to make sure your equipment will all work together nicely and so that they can update you on the newest and most cost effective trends.
