Is it Time to Upgrade Your Video Conferencing Systems?
Consider These Devices to Determine if You Need to Upgrade
The year 2020 brought along challenges that no person or business could have prepared to go through. Companies have had to adapt to a remote workspace on the fly. While many teams are still working from home, others are turning into a hybrid workforce.
If part of your Greenwich, CT team is still remote and other employees are returning to the office, you need video conference systems that is going to make communication and collaboration a breeze. If still you’re unsure whether your company’s video conferencing is ready for 2021 or not, then consider upgrading the following devices.
Video quality sets the tone for your conference call, so start your meeting off on the right foot with a high-quality picture. Some monitors and soundbars come equipped with built-in cameras, but they might not provide the best image quality. If that’s your experience, we recommend purchasing an independent camera. You can even find a camera with advanced features like speaker recognition and the ability to adjust the angle automatically to whoever is speaking when there are multiple people in the room.
Is the soundbar in your conference room the same soundbar you’d enjoy at home in your media room? If so, it’s time for an upgrade. The purpose of a soundbar in a conference room isn’t necessarily to immerse yourself in an audio experience but to have the best communication possible between you and virtual meeting attendees. Look for a soundbar with built-in microphones. You can even find more advanced soundbars that use software to pick up who is speaking so it can deliver the sharpest possible reproduction.
If you want to engage in video conferencing that is crystal-clear and efficient, you need a network that works just as hard. Most popular conferencing solutions require a bandwidth minimum of 250 Mbps to ensure full 1080 resolution. It’s likely your team will have wireless devices connected to your Wi-Fi, so remember that when you’re considering a network upgrade!
