As AV Infrastructure Becomes Mission-Critical, It Should Be Implemented Accordingly
Some years ago, AV systems tended to be separate projects and departments within organizations. While important, they were not tied to the computing and communication systems organizations used to run their business. The convergence of all information on digital technology has changed that. Today, collaboration platforms like Zoom and Microsoft Teams integrate communication, collaboration, and productivity to serve workers in offices and remote locations. This level of integration is forcing organizations to rethink AV infrastructure as an integral part of their technology strategy.
With AV technology deeply embedded and such a key part of today’s workforce, it needs to follow similar systems integration strategies applied to computing systems and mission-critical business applications. Keep reading below to explore five important aspects of integration projects needed for successful AV implementations spanning from Phoenix, AZ, to your worldwide locations.
24/7 monitoring and management help prevent system downtime and costly service visits
Imagine you’re chatting with a friend on Zoom video, and the call cuts out. That’s a shame, but there’s no real harm done — you can reschedule the video call or finish your conversation over text message. Now imagine you’re giving an important presentation in the boardroom with business partners from across the U.S. participating remotely...and the connection cuts out. The consequences are far more high-stakes in this situation.
Outages and system downtime can result in catastrophic financial costs to your business. The time and productivity lost while restoring AV systems cuts into your bottom line. And it’s not just your time and productivity — your business partners suffer too, which can impact your relationship with them.
Outsourcing your AV systems monitoring and management to an experienced managed services provider can prevent costly system outages, downtime, and service calls. Keep reading to explore this crucial component of managed services for your business in Scottsdale, AZ, or anywhere in the world.
Do you remember the movie “Wall Street?” The first one, of course, from 1987. You might recall the noisy bullpen scene with the frenzy of stockbrokers cold calling for clients. Who wants to work in that noisy environment?
“How much training do I need to operate the AV system?”
This is the first question I asked myself when starting at a healthcare simulation center. From working with patient simulator’s and skill trainers to programming vital signs and scenario’s, healthcare simulation can have a big learning curve for those just starting out in this field. The area I felt needed the majority of focus was navigating AV systems in healthcare simulation.
