Video conferencing is much more important than before. But how many meeting rooms do you need with video conferencing capabilities? And how do you set them up in a way that’s feasible and financially viable? Instead of moving to a larger and more expensive office, SMBs would be wise to make small investments in smart projectors and webcams and meet the video conference surge head on without committing to huge expenditures.
This allows companies and organizations a lot of flexibility for not a lot of money. Smart wireless projectors now offer so many features, users don’t even need to bring their laptops along, as the browser and all the apps they need are already installed on the projector.
Smart wireless projectors help resolve the room shortage issue by operating as all-in-one solutions that are as easy to use as a smartphone or personal laptop. It’s pretty much guaranteed all your team members will feel at home with a good smart projector, with all apps pre-installed and Wi-Fi readily available. There’s nearly no learning curve and the tech skill level needed basically covers pressing the power button and then using a friendly interface that employees recognize right away.
Smart wireless projectors work PC-less as they read all popular file formats including every Microsoft Office extension. Files can be shared from USB drives or cloud storage and there’s no need for pairing with a PC.
The lack of HDMI or any other video cables further liberates team members from lengthy setup and clutter. All that’s needed is a power outlet and a surface to project onto. Any wall will do, preferably white for better visibility.
Smart projectors easily move from place to place within the office. They’re not tied to specific meeting rooms like traditional projectors. Employees can organize a meeting in seconds.
A smart projector transforms into a video conferencing system by simply connecting a webcam through USB in plugn play.
Takes seconds, saves countless hours of IT headaches. Not to mention the modest cost compared to complex video conferencing setups. As smart wireless projectors are Wi-Fi connected, you can download your preferred video conference app directly to the projector: again, no PC or any other device needed.
After all the steps needed to ensure a safe reopening of offices, and after months of enduring Zoom fatigue, SMB teams have a way to get back on track. Video conferencing from home on a laptop gets tiring, but not video conferencing from the office in a space devoted to video meetings. That has a totally different feel, it’s much more professional, and people react to it positively.
Go for a smart wireless projector setup. If desired, you can even switch to all-audio in hybrid meetings by placing the projector-mounted a camera aside during video calls, so employees don’t have to put up with repetitive sessions that show talking heads in bedrooms coupled with the occasional appearance of a colleague’s cat. At the same time, everyone still knows exactly which colleagues in the hybrid meeting are still there, so there’s no doubt.
