When a visitor enters your building, the first space they typically enter are a reception area, then once they are shown to the relevant office or meeting room; they are exposed to communal areas along the way. First impressions are made and perceptions are formed. Audio-visual equipment can help you make the right perceptions.
Using audio-visual equipment in communal areas gives you the ability to show employees and visitors your company culture as well as keep people informed about what is happening across the business.
Audio Visual Considerations for your Communal Areas
- Could you utilise space to put up an IP TV screen to showcase key branding messages, or perhaps welcome messages, videos, office infographics?
- How about an interactive screen for signing in visitors?
- Background music makes a more relaxing environment.
- Screens for team announcements or statistics displayed in the communal office space ensure a competitive and informed company cultures
Audio Visual Solutions for Communal Areas
IP TV allows you to showcase the same message across
multiple screens by updating from your computer and pushing it out to one or multiple screens. IPTV’s are ideal to push messages out to communal areas to remind staff/visitors of key information, office infographics, company videos or simply improve brand awareness, company-wide.
Wireless Presentation applications allow you to share your presentations from any device for all compatible screens.
Some wireless presentation applications take it further by enabling you to use the application to display welcome screens with room scheduling, automate screens to turn on/off during working hours and schedule imagery and videos to play on loops.
Communal areas are ideal places to display images and messages throughout the business. Reception areas, you’d display visitor information such as fire alarm practice, plus business branding messages.
In other communal areas you’d use the displays to enhance the business culture; perhaps someone is doing a charity run or you can request that if anyone is interested in getting involved in an initiative you are running to see a certain contact point.
Interactive Screens and Whiteboards
Interactive screens are great for team collaboration projects and presentations. Imagine being able to pull everyone around a screen, draw a new concept, tweak it and save it really easily.
You can even get interactive screens and whiteboards which aren’t fixed, meaning you can move them around the office to wherever you want to collaborate.
Good quality speakers are essential when you want the audio to be heard, clearly. There are three main types of speakers; fixed bracket speakers, integrated ceiling speakers and freestanding speakers.
In communal areas, integrated ceiling speakers are great unless you have a vast communal area in which case, fixed bracket speakers tend to be a better option.
Most audio-visual needs cabling and as most know, not any
cable will do. You need to have the right cable to ensure the AV solutions
performs at its best. Also, you want to be confident that your audio-visual
equipment will work but without seeing unsightly cabling. Only experienced
cabling engineers can do this for you (like us!)
