How Conference Room Audio Video Promotes a Collaborative Workspace
Workplace Design Is Essential to a Productive Environment
As we begin to round out the last couple years of the decade, some interesting changes have become visible across the country’s workforce.
Where previously businesses focused on what they do or how they do it, today’s entrepreneurs are starting to pay much more attention to where they’re working.
Though some businesses expand outward with remote staff, others see the value in creating a comfortable, collaborative, and productive in-house environment. The key to that can be found in commercial interior design.
Pops of color can stimulate minds. Open floor plans can facilitate flexibility. And technology can bridge the gap between ideas and results.
Crestron Simplifies Collaboration
If there’s anyone who knows about workplace design, it’s Swedish furniture retail giant Ikea. For their latest project, they’ve teamed with noted designer Stefan Diez to define the future of workplace design.
On their blog, Diez is insistent on two things. That the future of commercial design “is to enable temporary collaborations and flexible working conditions,” and that the office should be “a fluid and organic ecosystem.”
In your conference room, that means simplifying your AV with easy-to-use solutions, like the Crestron Mercury tabletop console.
For instance, Mercury makes conference calling easier with a built-in phone and Bluetooth connectivity. Users can speak directly to the console or connect via their smartphone, so it sounds like everyone is in the same room during your conference call.
Engage with Dynamic Mobility
Mobility is a key factor in modern conference room design. Ikea and other design businesses continue to develop configurable, modular solutions that can adjust throughout the day to encourage dynamic interactions for your staff.
Among the greatest tools for workers when it comes to mobility is their smart devices that allow them to engage at all times. They can make calls, send emails, watch videos, read documents, and even control office automation from a single device.
Crestron has developed tools to help make mobile devices an even more central part of production. The Airmedia Presentation Gateway allows you to stream content from your smart device to larger conference room displays.
Airmedia works natively with computers, with iOS and Android devices via the downloadable app, and through the Mercury All-in-One console. Managers can also remotely add Airmedia to employee desktops for easy connection from anywhere in the office.
