There’s no denying the fact that when it comes to getting everyone connected quickly, nothing beats wireless. Cabled connections certainly still have their place as a backup or in certain rooms with static setups, but more and more people are embracing the flexibility of wireless connections in the workplace and the agility that they provide.
The crux of the matter is that wireless connectivity really does save time and nowhere is this more evident in the meeting room than with wireless presentation devices. What looks like an ‘extra’ when speccing out a meeting room, fast becomes an essential, as teams see for themselves the difference it makes being able to share their content from almost any device.
In this article, we’ll look at how wireless presentation devices work in practice and address some of the key stages involved in getting them up and running.
In the professional world, collaboration is a MASSIVE deal in 2022 and one that a huge array of manufacturers are hanging their hat in terms of meeting room technology.
But what does it really mean and how do you judge what kind of technology helps you achieve this mystical power?
There’s usually a method of collaboration that can help you achieve a goal more effectively. Whether it’s working on creative projects that require dynamic input from multiple individuals, or annual reports that need to be reviewed by multiple executives, collaboration plays a central role across almost every level of a modern organisation.
More than this though, collaboration is a general attitude that exists among groups of individuals, where elements of sharing and teamwork lead to cooperation. We explore what collaboration means today and some of the ways you can go about encouraging it within your teams.
Here at Projectorpoint, we spend a lot of time talking about technology for collaboration. You can’t blame us really; the right technology can improve the productivity of just about every business in one way or another.
But of course, when you mention ‘collaborative working’ the image that usually pops up is of a group of people all huddled around a touchscreen. And whilst in a very literal sense that is collaborative working, we’re here to remind you that there are many different ways of collaborating on projects and a wide range of amazing technology to help you do so.
So jump in and prepare to have a bit of a rethink about what collaboration really means in the modern workplace.
When you stop to think about it for a moment, the process of collabor
If 2018 promises anything in the world of meeting room technology, it’s that video conferencing is going to become more and more popular in offices up and down the country.
