Session Title: Beyond the VC Platform: Automation and Control Technologies for the “Perfect Meeting”


Michael Carter
AMX, Director of Integrated Building Solutions

Description: Join us as we explore the latest innovations in meeting room control and automation technologies. We’ll examine technologies and best practices for streamlining Meeting Room AV and Electronics control, reducing energy consumption, and boosting productivity.

Technology failures are a common and costly reality in meeting rooms, lecture halls, and presentation venues. Even with a foolproof video conferencing platform, the various electronics and audio visual systems that exist in our high-utilization meeting and collaboration spaces (not to mention lighting, environmental controls, B.Y.O.D. inputs, etc.) can cause “the perfect meeting” to be elusive. Corporate Executives and Managers spend 70-80% of their time in meetings, with much of that time wasted due to technology failures. Studies estimate that the average IT Support Technician spends 40 minutes each day addressing Meeting Room Technology issues. When you add up all of the delays due to technology failures for the typical Enterprise, University, or Organization it is not difficult to imagine that the cost in terms of lost productivity can easily be tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars each year. This session will present solutions to address these problems.
