Why You Should Listen to this Talk on Workplace Transformation

Combine changing demographics, what-I-want, when-I-want-it technology trends, and new ways of thinking about work, and you have the forces that are shaping what is being talked about as “workplace transformation.”

The term carries a considerable weight — its two words implicitly promising something better than the cubicle farms that are a shorthand for the worst of office culture.

The good news is that with a little determination, unity of focus, and technology, we don’t have to settle for that kind of culture. And even a passing familiarity with business trends will confirm that plenty of businesses have evolved.

For our recent webinar on workplace transformation, representatives from Cisco and AMX by Harman offered their thoughts on why work is changing and talked about the technologies their companies specialize in and what they do to create environments where we can collaborate with those in and outside of the office.

In less than an hour, you’ll learn about the video collaboration and networked AV technology that is making it possible to create workplaces that are responsive to your needs, and to the needs of your colleagues. Some of the topics our speakers address include:

  • Importance of video collaboration
  • What is meant by a connected workplace
  • Technology that engages visitors
  • Advantages of networked AV
  • Solutions by Cisco and AMX that make improvements possible

The New Era in AV Control

Working with our experts affords me the opportunity to appreciate how talented they are, and how dedicated they are to their profession. In this case, I’m thinking of David Thorson, AVI-SPL’s senior manager of programming architecture.

David has spoken before about what companies should expect from an AV system and how they can protect their investment. In the paper “Simpler, Automated, IT-Friendly: The New Era in AV Control,” he explores advances in AV programming and what AVI-SPL is doing to make sure users of all experience levels can easily make use of a room’s AV and video.

Find out where AV programming is today and what that means for businesses that rely on audiovisual systems.

What to Expect From Today’s AV Control Systems

Audio-video control programming makes it possible to manage a variety of systems from a single touch panel. Simplicity remains the guiding principle as programmers expand their talents to accommodate BYOD, unified communications, and users with a range of technology comfort levels.

The following AVI-SPL tech paper explains how today’s AV control programmers are responding to the changing workplace by:

  • Helping IT staff manage AV equipment from a central location
  • Meeting the needs of network-centric environments
  • Empowering BYOD in the meeting space and beyond

This is a must-read for any organization that relies on AV and collaboration technology.
