How To Improve The Audio In Your Conference Room For Remote Meetings

Whether you want to hold successful remote meetings or try creating videos as part of your marketing strategy, there’s one thing that can keep you back: poor audio quality.

You want people on the other end of your call to be able to pay attention to your ideas, not spend the call trying to figure out what it is you’re saying. And when you put some time into updating your healthcare facility’s audio resources, you’ll save more time in the future from frustration.

Prepare your conference room to be as acoustically-friendly as possible and stop wasting time on your calls with these simple changes.

Make Sure You’re Heard

If you’re sitting in a large conference room and trying to have a call on your laptop, the microphone might not be strong enough to pick up your voice clearly. Instead, you can have a microphone installed that will be strong enough to handle the room’s size.

Stop Competing For Noise

When ambient sounds are surrounding you, your audio quality won’t be clear on the other end. First, survey for things like fans, window cracks, and any other sounds, big or small, that can be amplified by a microphone. Make sure telephones are on silent and devices like printers are turned off to avoid any surprises.

Put Your Walls To Work

If you’re finding that ambient noise from outside of your conference room is negatively affecting your audio, you can have sound-dampening panels installed on your walls. Plus, for healthcare facilities, you’re adding an extra level of privacy for anything said in that room.

Check Before You Start

The best way to ensure you have no surprises with audio in the middle of your call is by making sure that sound, input, and volume levels are all ready beforehand.

Audio Visual Solutions For Coordinating Huddle Spaces In Commercial Offices

Having one or more huddle spaces in your commercial office is a great way to allow employees to collaborate and communicate in settings less formal than conference rooms, and less distracting than offices.

An ideal huddle space has room for several people to sit comfortable, enough desk space that people can write and/or setup laptops, and an audio/video distribution setup so that ideas can easily be shared with the group.

But as with any commercial office technology, you can’t expect a seamless system to work without some help. These audio visual solutions are ideal for coordinating huddle spaces in your office.

Reserve Spaces Remotely

One of your employees received an email on the way to work regarding an unexpected change that requires the team to meet immediately. Rather than waiting to get onsite, a scheduling app will allow your staff to reserve a room whenever they need to, and from anywhere. As a bonus, that employee could share their huddle room reservation with the rest of the team simultaneously, saving lots of time in the process.

Preprogram Spaces

Rather than fumbling with light switches, monitors, or sound when you’re in a huddle room, what if they could be preprogrammed with your settings beforehand? Allow staff to set desired room temperature, music, and lighting to increase their efficiency.

Optimize Displays

When your commercial office employees are strategizing over an issue together, give them a space to work out ideas where everyone can see them. A smart whiteboard can help everyone keep track of what gets written down, and large display screens can help employees share digital assets.

How To Make Sure Your Small Healthcare Office Conference Room Makes A Big Impact

Conference rooms come in all different shapes and sizes, from the massive mahogany boardroom with leather chairs, to the casual space that allows start-up team members to get together on occasion.

But you don’t need a lot of size to make sure your healthcare office conference room makes an impact; especially nowadays when technological and audio-visual assets can be streamlined and hidden according to any space’s needs.

Whether your conference room has room for four people or room for ten, these are some essential components that will make it feel even bigger.

The Right Size Display Screen

You don’t want to overwhelm meetings with a display screen that is much larger than you need. For small rooms, you likely won’t need anything more than a 50-60” screen, but you’ll want to make sure that seating is positioned in a way that no visibility is lost.

The Right Speakers

Small conference rooms can typically get away with using the speakers on a monitor, but you may want to consider having an audio-visual installation team hide additional speakers in the ceiling or install an additional soundbar.

The Right Phone 

Conference rooms require the ability to connect via phone and nowadays, via digital display as well. You need something with high-enough quality that your voice, and those on the other end, don’t get lost to a poor connection. A small room helps with keeping audio clear, but you may also want to consider strategic additional microphone placement if needed.

The Right Connections

You never want any employee in your office, or even worse, an executive or client, to have trouble connecting their laptop or device to your room’s setup. Offer wireless connection so that everyone can get started immediately, and have cables available just in case something goes wrong.
