The Advantages of Integrating a Multi-Format Presentation Switcher to a Conference Room.

Every company has a conference room or meeting room. Today’s conference room is certainly much more different than the conference room your father was accustomed to. Let’s take a step back to the 90’s when the AV equipment found in a conference rooms included an overhead projector for large transparencies and a pull-down screen. The presenter would dim the lights to see the image because the projection light was so faint. The attendees would have a notepad and a pen while others would take a nap through the meeting. Sound familiar?

Well, 2016 is upon us, and the conference room has certainly evolved throughout the years. Today, the conference room is the center of command for most businesses. It’s a collaborative atmosphere where ideas are discussed, and key decisions are made. Meeting spaces are now versatile and reliable and can include a high-end projector, phones, integrated audio & video, displays and control systems. On top of that, everyone owns a laptop or some kind of mobile device that they work from and they usually bring these devices to meetings.

Wouldn’t it be great to be able to connect these devices seamlessly prior to a meeting or conference? Well, the video below is a story about our dear friend Grant.
