Choosing Between a Projector and a Display Screen

You expect your corporate spaces to be equipped with technology that makes it possible to present information. So how do you know when to choose either a flat-panel display or a screen? This recent Corporate Tech Decisions special issue offers some answers, as it considers uses like presentations, video conferencing, and digital signage.

Some of those answers come during a Q&A with AVI-SPL VP of Display Technology Rodney Laney. Rodney shares his thoughts on how factors like room size and ambient lighting will affect your choice in “How to Choose Between a Projector and Display Screen.”

5 Strategies for Your Workplace’s Digital Transformation

New technology doesn’t help your company if your coworkers won’t use it. Last year, I wrote about Enbridge, an energy company that needed consistency among its meeting spaces.

Now, we offer advice you can follow to have the same success. In “5 Strategies for Implementing Standardization Practices as Part of a Digital Workplace Transformation,” you’ll learn about:

  • The types of solutions that are simplifying standardization
  • Some common roadblocks to standardization
  • Why Crestron’s .AV Framework is the solution of choice for companies like Microsoft
