Making Sound Improvements; Reviewing your AV for maximum impact

When was the last time you reviewed your AV?  Does it always creep down the agenda as budget gets allocated to other projects?  

Making sure you are getting the most from your AV doesn’t have to mean a full scale refurbishment project.  By appointing a specialist AV consultant to carry out a review, quick fixes can be identified to help you to get the most from the AV you currently have, both for your clients and staff alike.  An AV review will also identify how things can be improved further with more investment over the longer term, to really make a difference to your venue and the customer experience that you offer.

Do I really need to review my AV?
Ask yourself a few simple questions;
  • Is your current AV problem free?  
  • Do you know what AV systems you currently have?  
  • Do you still talk with the contractor who installed your AV system?
  • Do your staff have the correct training to get the best from your current AV system?  
  • Are you fully embracing new technology in your conference and meeting rooms?  
  • Is your AV giving you the edge on your local competition?
If the answer to any of these questions is ‘No’, then you could definitely benefit from an AV review.

For example, if you offer meeting and conference facilities you will realise that modern delegates are very technologically savvy and have a lot of AV requirements.  Are your conference and meeting rooms offering the facilities to enable;
  • BYOD capability
  • HDMI connectivity
  • HD resolution projection
  • Interactive presentation facilities
  • Collaborative meeting spaces
  • Audio for conferencing from both phones and mobile devices
  • Projection bright enough to view without dimming the lights, enabling delegates to still view their note pad
  • Loud, even and clear sound and vocal reinforcement throughout a room to hide external sound sources and create the emotional impact required by the speaker or presenter?
An AV review can help you to determine how to offer all of these facilities effectively to business guests, helping to ensure that they continue to choose your hospitality venue.
