Upgrade Your Conference Room by Going Wireless

Crestron AirMedia is the Solution for the Missing Cable

Imagine this: a conference room is full of people, and a presenter wants to connect to the display or projector in the room. While a cable is available to connect, the presenter has a Mac instead of a Windows laptop. The cable doesn’t match the Mac’s video output. A mad scramble ensues for the right cable or an adapter, and one of two things happens: the correct cable never materializes, or 12 people are looking at a PowerPoint presentation on a 13-inch screen.

Another dreadful scenario: the presenter has an iPad or Android tablet. There is no cable to connect to the wireless device. “Do you have a wireless way to connect,” the presenter inquires? In both of these scenarios, valuable time is wasted trying to figure out how to begin a meeting.

Don’t be that conference room in Vail or anywhere else in Colorado, for that matter. There is an easy solution, though: Crestron AirMedia. AirMedia is a wireless conference room solution that lets any device connect to your room’s AV. Keep reading to learn how you can make meetings much more productive.

Enrich Your Business’s Ambiance with a Commercial Sound System

The Right Background Music Sets the Mood 

What’s installed in your business? If you don’t have an audio system, you might be missing a great way to make your enterprise stand out from the rest. Whether it’s a brewery tasting room, a gym, a bar, restaurant, or a medical office, the right background music can set the perfect tone and ambiance you want to convey.  

In a doctor’s office, provide a soothing and calming background with music or even a comedy program. If someone is getting dental work done, light entertainment can help distract from thinking about the procedure ahead. In a gym, you likely want to pump up your customers; lively, upbeat tunes get heart rates going, and having the perfect volume helps, too.  

In a restaurant, the background audio can completely change the ambiance. If your coffee shop morphs into a brew pub in the evening, you can go from jaunty morning tunes to rock and pop tunes in the evening. If you have TVs showing sports, you can have the audio from the big game play in one area while music flows elsewhere.  

Can you do any of this with your current commercial sound system? If your Steamboat Springs, CO business spans multiple rooms and has a large footprint, you need a commercial sound system.  

What’s different about commercial sound systems? Read on to learn more.
