What Features Should My New Conference Room Have?

 

Building a new conference room is a big deal, after all, company presentations to clients and productivity meetings will be held here. Those are two hugely important uses that will produce more money for the company if everything goes well.

 

Seeing as it is such an important room, it makes sense to take the time to make it the best it can be by setting it up with great features.

 

How?

 

We have a few ideas that will help you!

 

 

  1. The Table

Where everyone will be writing their notes is important. It should be big enough for multiple people to sit without crowding each other, but not too big for the needs of your office. If you think you’ll be using it to present to clients fairly often, you might want to go for the larger table to have them believe that you are a larger company than you are or that you present to larger companies with several executives in attendance.

 

Another thing to consider is the height of the table; you want it to be a decent height for the majority of people to sit comfortably and be able to write any important notes. Of course, you can’t please all sizes, but aiming for the average individuals’ comfort is a good rule of thumb.

 

Last but not least is the material that the table is made of. This factor alone can be a huge wow factor, and it has the potential to break the bank as well. Finding the highest quality table you can that fits your allotted budget can be harder than you think, but if you search long enough, you’ll find something that you like that will fit your needs.

  1. The Seats

Comfort is key, but making it too comfortable may backfire when employees start falling asleep at the meeting! You obviously want your clients to be comfortable as well. A good suggestion is to make sure the seats are comfortable to sit in, but don’t tilt back at all.

 

When chairs tilt back, people get too comfortable and productivity goes out the window. Get chairs that swivel, but remain in an upright position at all times. That allows everyone to position them comfortably but without running the risk of a midday nap!

 

One caveat is that if this conference room is only for clients, go all out and get the extra chairs. They’ll remember how nice it was to be in your conference room and be more likely to attend further meetings for subjects like expanding your services together!

 

 

  1. The Projector

A great display for presentations is important, so this is an area that you want to differ to a professional. Getting the right projector and screen combination is great, but without it being in the right spot in the room, you’ll have wasted your money!

 

Nowadays almost all the projectors on the market are great quality, but you can always ask the advice of your installation team. Give them the specifications of the conference room including the range of the size of the screen you want, the length of the room, and the height of the ceiling. With that information, they should be able to give you a great recommendation.

 

  1. The Sound

Getting quality speakers in your conference room Is another factor that can make or break your presentations. Having crisp, high-quality video is all fine and well, but if you can’t hear any of the presentation, then it’s all for not.

 

Ask the projector installation team for a recommendation on speakers or surround sound. If you have a larger conference room, surround sound is definitely the direction to go. A smaller conference room can get away with two large speakers, but that can be unsightly and can take up a lot of space.

 

Getting the opinion of those more versed in setting up conference rooms should be the next step you take after deciding on a clear budget range. Remember, high-quality speakers can be expensive, but the sound quality they deliver and the length of time that they will last you will be much better than a cheaper brand.

5 Ways to Use a Surround Sound System In Your Home

Do you like to watch movies only at the movie theater on a huge screen with their insane surround sound system? It isn’t always possible to make it to all of the must-watch summer movies on your list, but there is a way to make that experience in your own home.

Sometimes the timing doesn’t work, you don’t have enough money, or you can’t find a babysitter in time. However, by bringing the movie theater experience home, you’ll never have to worry about those issues again!

A home theatre and surround sound system is a one-time investment that will make sure that you never have to go to the movie theater to have the movie viewing experience you crave. You can watch the latest blockbusters and your old favorites any time you want.

 

Here are a few ways to enhance your home theatre and surround sound experience:

  1. The best room in your house should be reserved for your new home theatre. The room should not be a square but more rectangular, preferably with high ceilings. Carpet your room for best results. This could easily be the living room or the family room if you have one.

 

  1. The position of your speakers is crucial. Too close and you may feel like you are going to go deaf and too far and that surround sound system will fail you. Ask the installation technician to position them optimally so you can reap the benefits.

 

  1. A home theatre and surround sound system comes with a ton of wires. If you are going to have a room with the best equipment and potential to provide amazing screen experience, be sure to tidy up the cables. Hanging wires will kill the vibe of your interior. Ask the technician to run the wires through the walls and away from sight. Also, you can look into the Bluetooth option and go wireless!

 

  1. There are upgrades coming out all the time, and some will go the extra mile to provide you the best home theatre and surround sound experience. If you don’t know much visit your nearest electronic store or call your installation team to ask about new equipment to upgrade your TV.

 

  1. You know how you have to get the theater early so that you can find the best seat (which is the center of the room) but it’s mostly always gone? With a home theater, you can always have the perfect spot to enjoy your movie. Find the best chair in the room and aim all the speakers at that spot. Enjoy the best way to watch a flick that is available to us these days!

 

Another added benefit of home theatres is that you do not need to get overpriced popcorn and soda. Break out the pizza or cook a family meal, no one will stop you in your own home!

Another bonus is that you can take bathroom breaks without missing scenes of the movie, just hit pause. Who knows, home theatres might have been created by the guy who got tired of missing the best parts of the movie because of bathroom breaks!
