When members of your organization work for weeks putting together a presentation — whether pitching new business or presenting to the board of directors — one thing is for certain: All your efforts are for naught if your presentation technology fails. As one of Central Indiana’s leading audio visual technology experts, Electronic Evolutions’ design and installation pros work with companies to ensure success every time the AV is enacted — from small huddle spaces to large conference rooms.
Don’t Sabotage Your Presentation Success
Your worst presentation nightmare has come to fruition for some of the country’s most powerful directors and CEOs. Take Samsung’s Michael Bays who walked off stage after a technology fail of epic proportions; even legendary Apple CEO Steve Jobs’ clicker failed him in a very important presentation.
So, the good news, you’re not alone … and more good news, a majority of the technology issues that arise during an important presentation can be solved with some proactive planning and technology expertise. Three areas of utmost importance:
Get Wireless Access Under Control
The “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD) trend is not going away. Ensure everyone around the table can access your network, access the display and sound technology and participate in the discussion. It’s beyond just posting your user name and password, though that’s not a bad start. A presentation technology/AV professional can assess the potential issues and recommend the appropriate solutions.
Ditto: Remote Access
According to our friends at Polycom, a recent survey of 1,205 business decision makers in 12 countries shows video conferencing becoming a business communication standard, with 76 percent of respondents saying they use video solutions at work today, and 56 percent of video conferencing users participating in at least one video call a week. With those kinds of statistics, video conference technology must be a priority and not an afterthought.
Bring the Display into 2017
Like it or not, we’ve become a very visual, multi-tasking society and that carries into the workplace. An old-school drop down screen from 2001 and an equally ancient projector just isn’t going to cut it and won’t do justice to a 2017 presentation. There are lots of options — from interactive white boards to collaborative display monitors.
