As the COVID-19 vaccination rollout advances across the United States, more businesses are enticing employees back to the workplace. But full offices could be a thing of the past. Some enterprises — like Facebook, Twitter, and many others — will keep WFH policies in place forever, while others look set to introduce a hybrid work model.

Whether you welcome employees back to the office, keep them at home, or implement something that combines the two, you must have corporate AV business communication tools that power your team. Unfortunately, your audiovisual communication system might have other ideas, making it hard to transition from WFH to a post-pandemic work environment.

 

Integration Problems

Regardless of your future work set-up, you deserve an audiovisual communication system that expedites day-to-day interaction between office-based and work-from-home employees.

However, integrating such a system can be a challenge for companies like yours, especially if you lack the technical know-how to set up complicated equipment like network operating centers, control systems, AV racks, sound systems, and other collaborative tools. AV technology includes much more than wireless laptops, microphones, and webcams!

 

Installation Problems

Installing complex AV communication systems is an ongoing struggle for enterprises in the post-pandemic era. These systems include many moving parts — monitors, microphones, cables, servers, you name it. It’s unlikely you can pull off such an enormous operation without some outside help.

Improper installation of AV communication systems causes problems for enterprises that rely on these systems for communication, collaboration, and workflow operations. If you require hardware for video conferencing, live events, webinars, or team meetings, you need to call in an expert. Sure, working with an AV company requires an outlay but expect an investment return. Plus, someone else does all the hard work for you.

 

Maintenance Problems

Many issues with AV communication systems stem from irregular maintenance. You must update IT infrastructure and hardware regularly. Otherwise, expect technical issues that affect your team.

OK, you could maintain AV equipment yourself, but this is a laborious process that won’t produce results. It’s a better idea to work with a reputable company that provides ongoing support for AV communication and all the equipment that makes this communication possible, such as

 

  • AV carts
  • LCD flat screens
  • Scan converters
  • Headsets
  • Video cameras
  • Microphones
  • Projectors
  • Lighting
