Corporate AV has become ubiquitous in almost every setting, as digital devices seem to be constantly in-hand, and the expectations of immediacy and flexibility in sharing information is driving our business decisions more than ever. Meetings with remote participants have evolved not only to include video with an unfailing audio foundation; but also the flexibility to share content from multiple people— and multiple devices —with an assumed ease-of-use.
The term ‘Huddle Room’ is relatively new…the concept, not so much.
We’ve been equipping spaces used for video collaboration for several years and we’ve seen all it all, from small utility closets outfitted with folding chairs to world class large venues.
Many AV installers have multiple systems they run into a single amplifier, using a single, integrated control system for room volume. The amp is often one of the longer-lasting pieces of room equipment, and once set, most AV techs know not to “mess” with it.
You probably get this familiar type of call quite frequently:
Mr. Customer is searching for a wireless data-sharing solution – and the strangest part is that he may reference a specific brand-name of solution instead of the technology itself.
In the AV industry we pride ourselves on providing the best-quality audio and visual communication to our clients. One way in which we can do that is to offer video solutions in 4:4:4 color.
When digital video was first introduced, video files sizes were large in relation to storage and transmission capabilities. One of the ways to address these larger file sizes was to introduce “chroma sub sampling.” In digital video there are two main components; Luminance and Chrominance. Luminance (or contrast) is the difference between the lightest and darkest parts of an image. Chrominance is the color saturation of an image. The human eye is very sensitive to small changes in contrast (Luminance) and is less sensitive to changes in color saturation (Chrominance).

What to See at ISE 2017 – Booth 3-C98!
We continue to meet with Value-added Resellers and end-users on the ISE show floor; finding new ways to implement solutions and support end-users with the technologies and applications that really help them to succeed. A busy show means many notes to bring back to the people behind ClearOne- real feedback from AV practitioners – creating solutions that keep people connected. We value this time and this input to continue pushing ahead for innovation and real problem-solving with integrated solutions that make organizations and voice and visual communications that simply work.
With video conferencing becoming a necessity for most corporate, SMB, education and other organizations, how do the various Video Conferencing solutions really differentiate themselves from one another?
They all make the promise of being simple and intuitive; allowing you to save money and time by avoiding hundreds of miles of travel. They offer popular features like content sharing, recording, and even whiteboarding. But despite the promises, the reality was, for many remote participants, these solutions just weren’t maximizing on the video conferencing experience. Many participants found that by being remote, it was easier for them to become distracted and lose focus. Some users were so busy, they often found themselves multi-tasking and weren’t even focused on the meeting. And for others, doing a remote video call was just plain boring.
