    For so many of us, 2020 has fundamentally changed the way we work. If the business you work for operated in an open-plan office space, there’s a good chance you haven’t been at your desk since lockdown was implemented.

    Understandably, you might be wondering: if we’re all working from home, why should I consider getting a meeting room projector upgrade? When not everyone has had a lot of use from their office spaces, a new projector might not seem like the top of the priority list.

    But this downtime also comes with opportunity. The current situation could be the perfect time to implement an upgrade. The office is empty, meaning there’s no awkward disruption to the working day by if someone comes to make an installation. You have the time you need to have a new system installed that will leave your meeting room ready when colleagues make their long-awaited return to the offices.

  3. The Best Projectors for Churches in 2021

    Churches and places of worship aren’t like most conventional buildings, due to the array of unusual shapes and sizes they come in. Traditional Christian churches occupy buildings that are older than most, often listed, but more modern churches can be designed to be more futureproof.

    We know that those responsible for maintaining these beautiful properties can find it tricky to find the best projector for their church because no two churches are alike. Even so, churches remain at the heart of so many communities up and down the UK, and it’s important to have the right projector system for 2021 if you want to share images and film with your congregation.

  5. Sony Advances Their Native 4K Home Cinema Range with Two New Projectors

    If there’s one thing that we’ve learnt from lockdown, it’s the fact that having good entertainment at your fingertips matters more than ever before.

    Streaming services such as Netflix, Amazon Prime and Disney+ have been adjusting to this new reality, catering to consumers with increasing volumes of TV and films to watch on demand.

    As studios look to the power of streaming to get their films out during lockdown and regular sporting fixtures take place behind closed doors, we’ve all had to adapt.

    But how to enjoy all this new content and still get that cinema vibe when we’re stuck at home?

    The cinema has taken a back seat for the time being, but Sony has the answer with the new VW590ES and VW790ES projectors.

    Lockdown has blurred the worlds of home and cinema. But with these new models, it’s never been easier to get a slice of that blockbuster feel at home.

    We don’t know what the future has in store, and this current state of affairs could persist for some time. Don’t get frozen out of all the hours of content to be had. Consider what Sony has to offer, as part of their latest round of home entertainment systems for 2020.


    Sony keep raising the bar…

    The Sony VW270ES continues to show strong demand and remains available to those wanting the best-value, native 4K experience on the market, but if you want to step it up – we’ve got good news for you!

    The VW570 and the VW760 have been superseded by the VW590ES and the VW790ES respectively. Sony is determined to keep rai

  6. Who Should Buy Office Work from Home Equipment

    More employers are inviting their employees to re-join the workplace as COVID-19 restrictions ease. However, with social distancing needing to be enforced in the office it’s unlikely that many businesses, especially small businesses, will have the office space to keep all employees safe when in the office.

    This means that the home working norm will continue for many businesses for the foreseeable future. But who buys the work from home equipment needed to get the job done?

    Ultimately, to ensure your business is running smoothly it’s up to the leaders of small businesses to provide all the equipment their employees need to work as if they were in the office as usual.


    Everything your team need to work from home

    Our homeworking solutions could be the answer to your equipment needs.

    You and your employees will need a good webcam to capture every detail of your self-isolated video meetings. When not in the same room as the other participants of your video calls it pays to be able to clearly see the body language and facial expressions of the people you’re talking to – that way you know when things are going well, or you need to turn to plan B.

    A large monitor is a good replacement for a regular 15.5 inch laptop screen. Most companies these days have realised the efficiency improvements found from giving their employees two screens, well how about a giant screen display to boost productivity?

    We have a range of high spec Phillips work screens available, including the Phillips 241b7QUB HEB/00, which has a huge 24 inch screen, simplified connections with both Type C and A connectors. This fantastic unit also offers an Ethernet connection, power charging via USB-C and easy docking via DisplayLink functionality.

    It also comes wit

    What can go wrong during a video conference?

    Video conferencing is the most elegant alternative solution you have to the challenge of not being able to meet face to face. However, it’s not without its potential pitfalls unless you bear the following in mind:


    Fail to test your tech, prepare to fail

    For your video meeting to go without a hitch, you’ll need to confirm that your computer permissions are properly configured. Two of the most important things to check are whether your microphone and camera permissions are correctly calibrated.

    You may need to manually enable permission for your camera and microphone software on your computer. Otherwise, if you’re talking to new strategic partners or potential clients for the first time, you risk leaving a bad impression.


    Set an agenda

    Face to face meetings are always more efficient when you have a ru

  10. What is Collaboration in 2020?

    The world has turned upside down in 2020. No one could have predicted the events that have unfolded and the transformative effects they’ve had on the way the world works.


    The 2019 ONS labour market reported that 1.7 million of the 32.6 million people in employment in the UK worked from home. This amounts to less than five per cent of the labour force.

    Those numbers are looking rather different in 2020. Currently, those that can are working from home, most without any regular experience of working remotely before.

    The proportion of workers choosing to work from home and employers growing more sympathetic to the trend, has been steadily increasing in recent years. But COVID-19 has cemented things, forcing the situation on many employers and employees. So how do the collaboration mechanics of the office translate to a remote situation?


    Could work from home figures drastically rise after lockdown ends?

    It could well be that the way we work has been altered forever. A survey on the HR Director revealed that 60 per cent of people would like to work from home more often than they did previously when lockdown measures are lifted and the virus neutralised. Almost two thirds said they’d prefer to work from home two or three times a week, and a quarter of respondents said they’d like to go into the office only once a week.

    Eighty-four per cent of people said it’s ‘quite’ or ‘very’ important for employers to offer the option of working from home.
