Revisiting the Perfect Video Conferencing Series: Building Conference Rooms in a Post-COVID World
Greetings to all our dedicated readers and newcomers alike. I’m Randy Marcotte, the President of DCS Global. Five years ago, we embarked on a journey to explore the intricacies of crafting the ideal video conferencing environment. Our series, “Build a Conference Room and Don’t Get Fired,” delved deep into the pivotal aspects of constructing the most effective rooms for video conferencing. We highlighted the essential factors that ensured not just the success of the room but also the satisfaction of those who used it.
Fast forward to today, the world has undergone a seismic shift. The aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic has reshaped how we perceive and utilize video conferencing. With a significant portion of the global workforce adapting to remote work, the importance of video conferencing has skyrocketed. Moreover, the technological landscape has evolved, bringing forth innovations that were once considered futuristic. Among these advancements, the rise of Artificial Intelligence (AI) stands out, offering transformative potential for video conferencing services.
We all changed, right? I did. Our customers did and the very nature of the workplace has evolved. Be in control of how change impacts you.
As we stand at this juncture, it’s only fitting that we revisit our series. We aim to reflect on the changes, understand the new challenges, and provide insights into building conference rooms that cater to the demands of this new era. Join us as we navigate the post-Covid realities of video conferencing, delve into the latest technological advancements, and explore the burgeoning role of AI in enhancing our virtual interactions.
Stay tuned, and let’s embark on this enlightening journey together.
Warm regards, Randy Marcotte President, DCS Global.
Here is the overview and what we look forward to presenting to you and your team.
