A Conference Room Technology Modernization Project: Audacy Radio
Improving Audio, Video, and Collaboration in a Multi-Use Space
Many businesses and organizations are needing to rethink their investments in conference room technology. The pace of change moves rapidly, and the recent pandemic also accelerated already ongoing trends in remote work, remote collaboration, and employee training.
Like most organizations, Audacy Radio, headquartered in the St. Louis, MO Metro area, had an existing multi-purpose space used for training, meetings, and collaboration. The ten-year-old technology in the room was no longer meeting their needs, and The Sound Room was called in to help bring the space up to modern standards. Keep reading to see how it was done.
Replacing the Projector
The room had an aging projector with a 100-inch screen. Unfortunately, windows in the room let in too much light despite the window coverings, making the screen hard to see by day. High-resolution flat-panel screens have grown in size significantly in the past ten years, and we were able to replace the projector with an 85-inch, bright, high-contrast Sony TV, which is easily viewable in any light.
Adding Easy Video Conferencing
Poly (formerly Polycom) makes all-in-one, high-quality video conferencing solutions that are easy to use. These soundbar-style systems feature a high-definition camera, microphone array, and the ability to integrate with popular video conferencing platforms like Zoom for easy operation. Mounted under the new Sony display, this setup fulfilled Audacy’s needs for holding seminars, video calls, and web meetings with clear audio and video and no need for dimming lights in the room.
Our client was very pleased with the results. If your meeting spaces are in need of a refresh or revamp, the Sound Room would love to help you. Feel free to give our team a call or fill out our online contact form here. We look forward to hearing from you!
