Audio Visual Solutions for Distribution Centres

IPTV

Do you want to be able to showcase the same message across multiple screens? IP TV allows you to do this by updating from your computer and push it out to one screen or multiple screens.

In Distribution Centres, they tend to be located in more communal areas such as reception or the support office to highlight key information, show advertising, show relevant statistics or increase brand awareness of the business.

Wireless Presentation

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.

Wireless Presentation applications can be used in Distribution centres to display health and safety information on certain screens and branding information on others, all depending on what department the IPTV screens are displayed. You can also benefit with meeting rooms, training room and boardrooms, especially for meeting room scheduling as well as presenting.

Interactive Screens and Whiteboards

Both Interactive screens and whiteboards are great for team collaboration projects and presentations. Imagine being able to pull everyone around a screen, draw a new concept, tweaking it, annotating and saving it really easily. You can take that team meeting one step further but enabling everyone their input, even if they are based remotely, editing and sharing, real-time.

You can get interactive screens and whiteboards which aren’t fixed, meaning you can move them around the office to wherever you want to collaborate.

Interactive screens are most applicable in Distribution centre at reception for visitors. Interactive whiteboards tend to have most use in meeting room and the support office where the team need to collaborate on procedures, processes and projects.

Projectors and Projector Screens

You want a projector which is easy to turn on, set up, integrated with your device and show a great quality image.

You can get projectors which can be moved throughout a business or alternatively, fixed to one location. Likewise, a projector screen can be fixed in place or portable. Should you opt for a fixed projector and screen; they can be hidden and motorised to release them when you need them, which enhances the space and cleaner feel to meeting rooms.

In a Distribution Centre, projectors and projector screens tend to be integrated and fixed in to a meeting / training room.

Public address (PA System) / Tannoy systems

A Public Address system (PA / Tannoy system) allows communication across multiple departments / buildings at one time by using audio technology such as microphones, speakers and amplifiers.

In Distribution Centres where the space is so vast, this is particularly useful to notify staff of announcement or request the presence to certain areas. It is particularly useful in the warehouse area.

Speakers

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.

Speakers in Distribution Centres need to be of high quality to get over the general noise level. In the warehouse area, these tend to be fixed bracket speakers. In the reception and support office, they tend to be integrated ceiling speakers for background music.

Integrated Ceiling Speakers are ideal when you would like to create a pleasant ambience with background music.

Fixed Bracket Speakers are great when you are unable to use integrated ceiling speakers but still want a clear audio, however, they tend to be better placed in corners meaning you may audio quality gaps.

Video Conferencing Phones

Sometimes, a conference call isn’t enough and you need to see the people you are speaking with. Seeing someone’s face and body language reinforces and strengthens relationships. Video conference phones, allows for the visual and audio of a conference call meeting to take place.

Distribution Centres have most use for video conference phones within their meeting rooms where they can consult suppliers, partners and other centres.

AV Cabling

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!)
