Video Collaboration Solutions Design & Installation
Video conferencing today is enjoyed in boardrooms, huddle spaces, across continents and by field and remote office workers.
Video conferencing (VC) systems, small and large, are being installed and used increasingly by companies not only to reduce operational costs, but also to improve business processes, collaboration and productivity.
By working with Carillion Communications, many of our customers have become part of the second wave of video conferencing users who take advantage the latest generation of systems’ speed, clarity, integration and ease of use.
The case for installing video collaboration systems to reduce travel costs and increase staff productivity has been accepted. The business case for travel time, as opposed to productive teamwork or touch-screen communications, is difficult to make other than for critical hands-on sessions. For companies with multi-site regional offices, long distance suppliers or customers, video conferencing provides a quickly-realised benefit.
The latest wave of video conferencing adoption is driven by the need for improved company performance that creates competitive advantage. Video conferencing helps companies to make better informed decisions by using collaborative systems. Video collaboration has an advantage over other communication channels as it is more dynamic and immersive than email and messaging systems, and far more inclusive than the phone. The combination of sound and vision generates higher levels of understanding among meeting participants.
Post-pandemic, we can help you choose the right AV solutions to facilitate high-quality home working collaboration that support a hybid workforce.
Showcase video conferencing boardrooms may be required for prestige installations. However, VC is no longer beyond the budgets of small companies that want to achieve VC room design sophistication and installation.
The largest sales of video conferencing systems is being seen in smaller systems installed as departmental meeting rooms, as desktop systems or in huddle spaces.
The fastest adoption of collaborative VC systems has taken place in the APAC region. In comparison with other countries, the UK has been a slow adopter of VC owing to its long cultural history of face-to-face meetings. Interestingly, regular users of video conferencing do not feel they sacrifice the immediacy of in-person meetings. The view of regular VC users is that they are able to enjoy relationships with greater continuity that are less susceptible to diary and logistics issues.
The big change faced by new users of video conferencing systems is a cultural one. Today’s VC systems are very easy to use and don’t require expert knowledge, intensive training or complicated set-up. Business cultures are changing as more people become familiar with mobile and domestic desktop video formats. It’s only natural that professional video communication systems are being called for in the workplace.
