The Audio-Visual Edge: Conference Room Solutions for Modern New York

At PSE Audio Visual, we work directly with each client to ensure their conference room – whether it’s a huddle room, team room, or boardroom – is equipped with all the best technologies and solutions.

The conference room is supposed to be a place where business-minded people come together to share ideas, solve problems, and collaborate. Unfortunately, most conference rooms in the New York City area aren’t designed to satisfy those expectations – in fact, they’re doing more harm than good at this point. 

A lot of the conference rooms I step into look like they came straight out of the 1990s. I can picture it now – an old whiteboard with marks and stains on it, those uncomfortable chairs that look like they came from a library, and an old tape recorder sitting next to a corded landline phone. It doesn’t sound very inviting. 

Don’t you think your NYC business deserves better? Just think about all the time your employees, clients, partners, and board members spend in the conference room – don’t you want them to be more motivated, productive, and efficient in those meetings? Well, they could be with a little touch of modern technology!

Goodbye Boring Meetings, Hello Productivity & Efficiency

Look at all this incredible and innovative technology we have today – it’s everywhere! You use it inside your home, it’s used in the places you frequent, and it’s used by others all around the world – so why wouldn’t you want to introduce it to your conference room? I mean, come on – it makes perfect sense!

If you’re struggling to see what all the hype is about, here are some of the ways our audio and visual solutions can enhance and improve your conference room:

  • Outdated technology creates unwanted and unnecessary stress during high-pressure situations
  • Conference room solutions have a larger upfront cost, but will save you money in the long run
  • Meetings are more interactive and engaging, as opposed to the boring meetings you used to hold
  • Employees, clients, and recruits are happier and more motivated to do business with you
  • You’ll gain a competitive advantage against others in your industry – first impressions matter!
  • Promote greater communication and collaboration between your team and customers/clients

It doesn’t matter if you’re having an in-person meeting with your managers, a video conference call with remote employees, a presentation with a new client, or a group training session with new recruits – your conference room needs to promote interaction, collaboration, teamwork, engagement, and community.

Huddle Room, Team Room, Boardroom – What’s the Difference? 

Conference rooms come in different shapes, sizes, and functions. Some are designed for smaller groups (such as 1-on-1s and groups of 4), while others are tailored for larger groups (anywhere from 6 to 12+ people). Understanding the room’s style and function is crucial to selecting the proper AV solutions

Let’s take a look at the three most popular types of conference rooms and what they’re generally used for: 

  • Huddle Room - one of the newest trends with conference rooms today, a huddle room is suited for tiny groups (2 to 4 people) and allows for a more personal and confidential experience.
  • Team Room - a good team room will seat anywhere from 5 to 10 people and is best reserved for team-building exercises and strategizing. Video conferencing allows you to add more people.
  • Boardroom - when you think of a stereotypical conference room, you think of a boardroom. It seats 12+ people and is best reserved for large presentations with important decision-makers.

At PSE Audio Visual, we work directly with each client to ensure their conference room – whether it’s a huddle room, team room, or boardroom – is equipped with all the best technologies and solutions. From the planning stage to the installation and ongoing monitoring stage, we’re with you every step of the way!

Step Into the Future: How to Modernize Your Conference Room

When it’s time for a business meeting, you don’t want to be fumbling around with cords or struggling to maintain a solid connection – that’s actually the last thing you want. It won’t leave a good impression on those you’re meeting with and could, in fact, be the difference between success and disappointment.

No one likes disappointment – that’s why we suggest modernizing your conference room with innovative technology. With so many unique audio, visual, and administrative solutions available to business owners today, there’s nothing your conference room can’t do. Here are just some of the top AV solutions we offer: 

1. Displays & Screens

From LCD panels to LED video walls, interactive displays, and touchscreen tablets – displays play an important role in helping team members convey information in a captivating way. At PSE, we suggest using screens with high resolutions, wide viewing angles, and vibrant colors to ensure a clear picture. 

2. Speakers & Microphones

Clear visuals are important, but so is clear audio. With quality speakers and microphones, you won’t have to worry about team members or potential clients being unable to hear you (or vice versa). There will be less, “I’m sorry, can you repeat that?” and more, “That sounds great, I’ll get started on that right away.” 

3. Video Conferencing Cameras

High-quality video conferencing cameras are mandatory if you meet with distant clients and/or remote employees. Cameras also come in handy when recording important meetings – to send to those who missed the meeting or to retain for future use. Either way, a good camera goes a long way!

4. Interactive Whiteboards

Let’s trade in that old, dirty, stained whiteboard from 1982 with a sleek, interactive, and tech-infused whiteboard – trust us, you won’t regret it. Not only can you use it like a standard whiteboard, but some interactive whiteboards have touchscreen capabilities and the ability to share the screen with others. 

5. Digital Control Panel

Last, but certainly not least, is the one piece of technology that brings everything together – the control panel. This usually comes in tablet form and allows you to control everything about your conference room – from the displays, speakers, microphones, lighting, whiteboards, cameras, and other vital features.
