The next time you’re traveling or spending time in a hotel or other hospitality environment, look around you. Count the number of screens and monitors in conference rooms, hotel lobbies, outdoor entrance areas, patios, reception rooms and more. The numbers are rapidly increasing.
Audio visual technology is everywhere in the hotel and hospitality industry. Leading manufacturers of audio-visual equipment are teaming with local AV systems integrators and custom audio visual solutions builders to remake the modern hotel and hospitality experience. These new solutions are helping hotels market themselves better, while helping to cut costs and improve productivity and communications.
Some of the trends seen in the audio-visual industry that are impacting hotels and hospitality venues include a renewed emphasis on interactive content using touch screens, video conferencing and collaboration, lower LED screen prices and more screens being integrated on buildings, billboards and other structures. Additionally, hotel managers are looking to audio-visual systems integrators to help create digital satellite music and video on premises; integrated control systems for all components; and even customized on-premises paging and on-hold messaging. All in all, it adds up to exciting opportunities for hotels to build up a competitive advantage to woo travelers.
Here are some of the main areas hotels should look to audio-visual system installers for consultation and implementation:
A well-designed conferencing system should make communications effortless between on-site participants and remote access users. Better technological advances and smarter controls are increasing visual contact between participants and the ability to effortlessly share information and documents. For hotels that work with business groups often, offering state-of-the-art conferencing equipment is a must.
Video conferencing systems:
Video conferencing systems are becoming the ideal manner of communication for many. Getting several locations of people together for videoconferencing for training or company sessions is becoming priority number 1 for hotel operators. Video conferencing helps provide not only face-to-face communications, but also data-sharing capabilities along with top audio quality.
Having a professional audio systems installer manage the audio communications in hotels is becoming a standard practice. It’s important to engage the services of an audio systems installer for the integration, installation and maintenance of audio equipment. This might be a consultation about the use of the best audio speakers, or installation of wall mount or in-wall speakers, to best perform in the environment where speech or music is required.
