BYOD Meeting Room
Technology is changing the face of the business environment
BYOD brings significant benefits to the meeting room. Sharing content across tablets and smartphones makes these devices useful for many different meeting scenarios, ranging from sales presentations, to training, to planning sessions.
Wireless collaboration technologies, can bring participants’ devices together at the touch of a button, making meetings more productive. A wireless connection to a shared display from participants’ seats will remove the need for complex configuring and cabling.
Without bridging technology in place, connecting a device to a shared screen typically means a tangle of cables and having to regularly reconfigure screen settings. This can result in distorted content due to incompatible settings or resolutions. When multiple people want to put content on a shared screen, the problem is compounded. Selecting an appropriate wireless collaboration solution will bring all of the devices together regardless of the operating system.
Your Presentations Streamline
Multiple people sharing a presentation can be a common occurrence, and one that can become seriously time-consuming, especially when each presenter has to plug their laptop into the projector, give out their own hand-outs, etc. By introducing BYOD, employees can use their own smartphones and tablets to give their presentations, using mobile apps from AV specialists, to project their presentations wirelessly on to a single monitor. This allows presentations to run more quickly and smoothly.
Investing in the right technology is key to the success of bringing BYOD in to a meeting room environment. Mainly because technical issues are one of the foremost factors that negatively impact the effectiveness of meetings. Choose a streamlined solution from AV specialists which is fail-safe and easy-to-use, and you will quickly see meeting room performance improve.
Installing antivirus software on personal devices, and providing guidance to employees on how they can use their own devices to process corporate and personal data.
Data security can also be an issue, but with encryption and password protection, you can ensure no data is left vulnerable and unsecure.

BYOD is no longer just an emerging trend, it is here and it will continue to transform the way businesses work. Technology companies especially are exploring how it can increase productivity, employee happiness and efficiency in the workplace. The one place that needs BYOD the most is the meeting room, a professional solution should be integral to every company strategy, as it can significantly improve the quality of meetings, and reduce the amount of time spent in them.
