Audiovisual tools have always been a powerful means of enhancing business communications and engaging a variety of audiences. Now, however, they’re becoming a necessity for companies, especially ones with remote employees.
Current events (i.e., the coronavirus) have forced a number of businesses to rethink their modus operandi, particularly as it relates to meetings and travel.
As the coronavirus has spread throughout multiple countries, so has the demand for AV technologies, including audio and video conferencing, that enable geographically dispersed employees to meet remotely.
As more companies consider “virtual” meetings, video conferencing and live streaming have taken center stage. These meetings can be launched from anywhere using platforms like Zoom. Additionally, public events, conferences, webinars, and other content can be live streamed to social media networks to reach wider audiences.
CNBC has reported that Zoom has brought in more active users so far this year, amidst corporate concerns about the spread of the coronavirus, than it did in all of 2019.
Locally, Haverford Systems, Inc., a Downingtown-based technology company that’s been integrating and designing AV systems since 1987, is guiding companies through this process.
Haverford’s integration team can help companies usher in a new wave of affordable collaboration technology that enables enterprise-wide deployments. It has built a reputation as the region’s highest quality source for the design, integration, installation, service, and support of custom technology systems. It also assists institutions of higher education with their distance-learning technologies.
“These technologies can help companies not only weather the storm of events like coronavirus but also reach and engage audiences in additional ways,” said Julia Sherwin, Haverford’s spokesperson. “Today, most professionals expect a virtual option to events such as town-hall meetings, conferences, and seminars, and our technologies can make that a reality.”
