Why You Need Audio-Visual Solutions for Remote Meetings
Remote meetings and videoconferences have become more vital than ever for businesses in the United States. The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic caused people everywhere to rethink traditional meetings and opt for high-tech solutions that still make it plausible to see every nuanced look and hear every word spoken during a meeting.
CKC Data Solutions explains why you need audio-visual solutions for remote meetings in today’s blog post.
Remote meetings using state-of-the-art audio-visual solutions and equipment save you money on many levels.
- Reduces travel costs for employees and prospects
- Saves employee time for meeting prep where travel is involved
- Cuts down on employee sick time due to contact with other people
- Slashes costs for years due to one-time investment on equipment
Depending on how often you or your staff travels, remote technology can pay for itself in less than a year by saving on flights, car rentals, and paying for employee labor and meals while on the road. Remote communication is a widely accepted standard know, whether you use video chat through a smartphone or a full-blown videoconference room.
Capture Every Nuance
Audio-visual solutions for remote meetings capture every nuance that an in-person meeting does. Executives might field concerns about not picking up on nonverbal cues, glances, voice intonation, and many other nuances of interpersonal communication. Technology that captures voice and HD video alleviates those concerns. Microphones can pick up whispers or off-camera sounds. High-definition video may let you see someone pass a furtive glance to another in the room as they discuss vital information. Speakers in your conference room let you hear subtle sounds and changes in tone of voice.
Situations That Need Effective Audio-Visual Solutions
You may find yourself in several situations where audio-visual solutions form a crucial part of your business.
- Videoconferences with remote teams. You have a remote team working in a distant location, perhaps in a foreign country or thousands of miles away on the East or West Coast of the United States. Travel is a prohibitive cost, yet you need effective communication with your collaborators on the other end.
- Prospect meetings with potential clients. Prospective clients may not feel like traveling to your office due to pandemic concerns or cost-effectiveness on their end.
- Time crunch. You don’t have time to have your staff travel because they’re incredibly busy. Remote meetings alleviate that.
- Interviews. You’re interviewing top candidates for a job. Although your smartphone screen is an okay substitute, you want to see your candidate’s face on a larger screen so you can plainly see the person as if he or she is in the room.
- Staying in touch with employees. Videoconference with several remote employees at once can be hard on a small screen, particularly if you have dozens of workers on the video call at once. Eliminate this issue with the right audio-visual solutions in your conference room.
