Video Door Station for your Business

Us at Commercial Audio Video Installation Orange County know that having a door station installed at your business or office building will help protect your business and your employee. A video door station uses the combination or remote entry, video surveillance and communication in one. Amazingly there are multiple companies that do their own door stations.

 

Axis Communications is a company that offers video surveillance, access control, and audio solutions.

 

Axis Communications blog, Why invest in a network door station?, says Network door stations make access control and security more straightforward. By increasing the control and efficiency of your visitor management, premises security and staff safety can be improved, while also saving costs – without compromising on image quality.”

 

If you have a Control4 System setup in your office you can also connect their door stations to your entry.

 

On their website they say, “the Door Station provides an exceptional Video and Audio Intercom experience in combination with Video Intercom touch screens to provide customers the ability to monitor and communicate with their front doors, gates or entryways.” You can find out more about the Control4 door stations by going here.

 

 The last door station I am going to tell you about is the Hikvision door station. They have many different types of door stations. 

 

One kind of door station they have is the DS-KV8103-IME2 which is a compact door station and features a 2MP 155° fish-eye low illumination color camera and supports surface or flush mounting.

Offer Your Customers the Most Luxurious Audio and Visual Options for Their Ride

With customers who have multiple options for their rides, set yours apart by providing your riders with the most luxurious experience possible. Such offerings become especially important for long-haul transport vehicles that take riders on hours-long trips. Everything from better audio and video to automation is possible inside your ride vehicle. Make your ride a service that customers will prefer with these luxury AV upgrades.

Luxury Audio and Video

Imagine integrating a TV system into your coach, RV, or limo. Some brands we incorporate into our audio and video systems include Samsung, Apple, and Marantz. Riders get a visual and auditory experience matched only by movie theaters. Paired with comfortable seating and iPort integration ensure that riders will keep coming back for the luxury of riding in your vehicles.

Automation Controls 

We also offer automation controls from Control4 and Crestron. These controls can regulate the video and audio in addition to climate controls and lighting. Riders give over their control to you when they choose your coach or limo, but they should not bypass their control over their comfort. Automation controls provide them with the ability to make their environment as close to their ideal level of comfort as possible.

2020 Trends in Audio Visual Technology for Businesses

As we begin the new year in earnest, Experience Audio Video is looking ahead. Audio visual technology continues to evolve, and savvy businesses know how important it is to keep up. With that in mind, here are the top trends we’ve identified for business audio visual technology in 2020.

Trend #1: Digital Display Prices Continue to Drop

Digital display prices have been dropping, and we anticipate this trend continuing strong in 2020. The changes are staggering, really. In the consumer space, just a few years ago 4K TVs were cost-prohibitive for nearly everyone. Now big box stores are regularly selling them for under $500. The same goes for computer displays.

Of course, commercial grade digital displays will always command a premium over bargain-brand equipment for home use. But whatever the level, the trend remains the same.

As prices keep dropping, reevaluate whether your budget will allow you upgrades in this area. These could include digital signage, conference room video and even customer-facing TVs (if those are relevant for your industry).

Trend #2: Artificial Intelligence Grows in Capability

Our second trend for 2020 is in the area of artificial intelligence, or AI. AI-powered applications are growing more powerful by the week, it seems, and audio visual technology is no exception.

In the business A/V space, smart conference room technology will continue to get smarter, more capable and more intuitive. Existing smart control systems may drop in price as new players or new versions hit the market.

Trend #3: HD Isn’t Cutting It Anymore

As prices for 4K and even higher resolution displays drop, people will get accustomed to seeing 4K and better imagery. Soon, HD will begin looking as dated as VHS tapes did when DVDs hit the scene.

 


4 Ways AV Systems Improve Connections To Clients

As a commercial enterprise, your focus is on your customers. Figuring out how to provide them with the products or services they need, when they need them, is one of your biggest priorities.

But are you trying to connect with them in the right way?

Using audio-visual systems in your commercial office allows you to reach each client individually. Services can be provided faster, and a streamlined system helps improve confidence in your company.

  1. Share Information Faster

Digital signage can be used to help clients navigate your space, and provides relevant information and content that is designed to be useful for them. Plus, you’ll get an added benefit of improving employee morale when you have digital displays that focus on motivation and celebration of goals and milestones.

  1. Impress Them

Wow your clients with a multi-media presentation and increase your message’s impact. No matter what information you need to share, do so in the most comprehensive way possible with audio-visual elements.

  1. Reach Out Beyond the Office

High-quality video conferencing is essential to communicate effectively with clients or employees who aren’t on-site. But it can also be a way to reach even more people, such as holding a training session for employees overseas.

  1. Better Scheduling

No client wants to spend their day waiting for your time, especially in the case of urgent matters. With a digital scheduling system, you can make sure clients are seen faster, and you’ll help staff stay on top of deadlines. Link your schedules to digital displays so that employees don’t even need to open a calendar to see where they need to be.

4 Essential Audio-Visual Elements For Your Hotel Lobby

Nobody likes to wait, but the reality is, sometimes we all have to.

But when it comes to your hotel guests, you want them to have the most pleasant waiting experience possible. And that’s where a new audio-visual setup will help your lobby be more people-friendly.

When you incorporate these four elements into your AV system, you’re taking a big step forward when it comes to customer care.

  1. Create a mood with the right lighting

For a chic hotel, low-level lighting in non-traditional fixtures is all the rage. When you integrate your lighting with your audio system, you can create an immersive experience for everyone who walks through the door.

  1. Provide entertainment with digital displays

Perhaps you have a guest waiting for their scheduled pickup. Providing entertainment helps put them at ease, and distracts from worry about the time.

  1. Use music to engage guests and employees

When you play the right music in your hotel lobby, you’ll keep both guests and your staff happy. With a multi-room audio system, you can choose where music plays, which music plays, and even change the volume from anywhere.

  1. Install interactive displays

Guests can use map features on interactive displays to plan out their sightseeing, and they can access games or other content you offer, providing multiple entertainment options.

Is Your Commercial Office In Need Of A Morale Boost?

The new year has come, which means it’s time to get your commercial office back in business. But when you look around, do you see employees who look like they are up to that task?

Boosting morale and efficiency after the holidays can be tough; people have been traveling, partying, celebrating, and generally not thinking about getting work done. That transition back can make things even worse if your facility isn’t designed to encourage and support everyone getting back to work.

How can you help ease your employees back into work while making sure that your clients are getting the attention they need? Try some of these easy upgrades to your commercial space to get your staff back into the swing of things.

  • Play music at reasonable volumes in open work areas to cut down on ambient noise and help relax and motivate employees.
  • Offer a huddle space that allows employees to get together away from their desks to strategize and brainstorm.
  • Place digital signage around the offices to share information with staff and to celebrate individual accomplishments, awards, or milestones.
  • Use digital scheduling to help employees reserve conference rooms and workspaces, and allow them to control elements like the thermostat and music when they are using them.
  • Allow employees to open or close blinds and windows throughout the office. Using motorized window coverings will let employees do so with the touch of a button, and can allow you to control which blinds can be open and when.
  • Make sure audio solutions in your conference room and throughout the office are allowing clear communication with employees or clients from elsewhere.
  • Help employees and clients feel safe at all times by installing security cameras in your facility, particularly in dark areas like parking garages or hallways.

3 Audio Visual Trends For Your Commercial Space

If you want to keep your commercial workspace attractive to both clients and staff, it’s crucial that you stay on top of trends in the audio-visual world. But when it comes to this technology, what was once cutting-edge can quickly become old news.

In order to get the most bang for your buck when it comes to your company’s audio-visual technology, it’s important to keep it updated regularly so that both your office’s productivity and bottom line are always maximized.

What trends do you need to be aware of in the coming years?

Go Big

Thanks to cost-effective projectors and dropping prices of TV display screens, companies can now wow their clients with video walls and other immersive displays. Whether you use these to create a “living” artwork or as a place to share information with everyone who walks through the door, using a video wall will grab and hold their attention.

AV and IT

Nowadays it is impossible to separate out your company’s audio-visual and IT departments. Because most modern AV technology utilizes and works with the same equipment and functions that your IT department handles, it’s crucial that your staff is always ready to solve problems. Have your IT staff attend training with AV installers and find ways to make sure that they know how to troubleshoot common issues.

Purpose-First Design

More and more companies are allowing the design of huddle spaces and other common areas to be driven by their purpose rather than aesthetics. Consider your AV needs first when planning out these areas and you’ll design a space that serves its purpose for collaboration and project management.

Creating A Productive Audio-Visual Setup For Your Commercial Space

What kind of audio-visual set up does your commercial space have? If you’re relying on outdated items, it could be holding you back.

The right audio-visual setup, on the other hand, can be a boon to your client relationships, increase productivity among your staff, and generally improve your systems in an increasingly digital world.

You should absolutely assess the current state of your commercial office's use of audio-visual equipment and see where you can improve. If any of these scenarios sound familiar, it’s time to rethink your setup.

It’s Too Complicated

How many times have you tried to hold a meeting but were unable to figure out how to hook up your digital assets to a display? Or how many conference calls were delayed because no one could remember which button connects? If employees have to call an IT department continually, everyone's less productive. Instead, look for systems that are intuitive and easy for anyone to understand.

It’s Inaccessible

When your commercial office is having a group meeting, do you have a wireless method of sharing so that everyone can share their content? Make sure that the sharing of ideas is facilitated to increase employee satisfaction and productivity.

It’s Not Broken Down Into Zones

If people are hanging out in a shared space listening to music, is it played at the same level in your conference rooms? You need to separate out different zones within your commercial space so that each allows for a different activity.
