Compiled by AV Technology and Industry Leaders: 6 new, thought-provoking, inspiring workbooks provide unique AV/IT solutions for collaborative and secure environments.  

In early October, AV Technology collaborated with thought-leaders, sponsors, and editorial contributors to create six unique educational sessions on electronic communications in the modern workplace and higher education campuses. The sessions took place in Atlanta at CorpComm Expo and EduComm Expo. These thought provoking, inspiring sessions included workbooks that supported the presenters and provided the attendees roadmaps to create their unique solutions for collaborative, secure environments. We are delighted to make these workbooks available for you to download, read, and share. 
 
Let’s collaborate!

2. WORKPLACE COLLABORATION PLAYBOOK –
Solutions for Every Budget and Application

Collaboration technologies have forever changed “the meeting:” boardroom sessions, shareholder meetings, weekly report meetings, department meetings, meetings between coworkers, employee training, company-wide/worldwide presentations, and the list goes on. But every collaboration situation does not need the same technology solution. Learn where you can save money, where it is necessary to allocate the most funds, and how to get the most from a limited budget. A leading AV/IT expert will guide you through technology choices for various use-case scenarios such as to help you determine what you need from basic low-cost video-chat technologies to teleconferencing and videoconferencing to telepresence rooms.

4. SECURITY AND NETWORKED AV:
At Risk, Confidentiality, Integrity, Availability

 

Until recently the IT department didn’t need to be concerned about AV equipment or control. Until recently the AV department didn’t need to discuss AV equipment or control deployments with the IT department. That has changed. It is critical for AV and IT departments to understand how to talk each other’s language. The health of the institution depends on its level of security. A leading expert in AV/IT security will guide you through what you need to know now.
