Why Your Conference Room Needs a Dedicated Sound System

Have you ever been to a meeting where the presenter needed to play an audio or video file, and the results were less than stellar? Or have you been to a meeting where either the main speaker or someone attending via conference call could hardly be heard?

If so, you’re not alone. You’ve run into a problem that’s far too common in healthcare spaces today. Too many conference rooms are not equipped with even a basic dedicated sound system, leading to poor presentations and ineffective outcomes.

Here’s the bottom line: your conference room needs a dedicated sound system. Here are a couple reasons why.

A Dedicated Sound System Bypasses Lackluster Results from Tiny Onboard Speakers

Sure, the projector in your conference room can technically output sound. But it’s lousy. All it has is a tiny onboard speaker that is somehow too quiet and yet distorted and fuzzy all at the same time.

The same thing goes for monitors and display screens. Some of them have some kind of audio capability for playing the audio that goes with a video presentation, but they just don’t sound good. Beyond that, they can’t help you with any other needs you may have.

A Dedicated Sound System Gives You the Most Capability

Of course, playing videos with an audible audio track is only one way that you could need sound capability in a conference room. There are plenty others, such as amplifying a soft-spoken presenter, having greater control over volume of virtual attendees, and having an easier way to record audio in your meetings.

Whatever scenarios you encounter, a dedicated sound system in your conference room gives you the capability and flexibility to succeed with sound.

If you’re ready to pursue a dedicated sound system for the conference rooms in your workplace, give Experience Audio Video a call today to get started.

TV or Projector? Which Is Right for Your Conference Rooms?

At Experience Audio Video, one question we hear every now and again from our health care customers is about how to handle video capabilities in conference rooms. Are projectors and screens the right choice, or would health care offices be better served using large TVs? It’s a great question, and the answer isn’t the same for every organization. Let’s look at the pros and cons of both options.

Projectors and Screens: Pros and Cons

The digital projector has been a conference room staple for a few decades now. It’s ubiquitous, and for good reason. You can get a pretty large projection in a relatively small space, and when properly configured a projector will mimic the experience of looking at a computer screen for a larger group. Excel files, for example, tend to display in a size that makes sense.

Projectors aren’t without their downsides. They tend to be a little bit dull/dim, and some models are hard to adjust when they go out of focus. Typically, their onboard audio capability—if it exists—is terrible. They also tend to be fairly pricey.

Large HDTVs: Pros and Cons

The price of large televisions has dropped drastically in the last decade, even as their quality has increased just as drastically. A good large TV will have a sharper display and a higher brightness than the average digital projector. If crisp visuals are a priority, a TV or two might be the better choice. They often tend to be much cheaper than projector/screen combos.

The downside is that they aren’t exactly intended to be used as business displays. Play a video or PowerPoint, and they’ll do great. But if you’re displaying a spreadsheet? Your attendees may have real difficulty reading. They also tend to be mounted in more accessible locations, increasing the risk of damage.
