Even in this digital-age with screen-share technology and video-call capabilities, face-to-face meetings remain invaluable. Whether you’re presenting your latest ideas to a client, encouraging team collaboration, or holding essential board meetings, a conference room supported by modern and reliable meeting room tech could be the edge your business is looking for.
How many times have you brought a vital client in, only to be let down or delayed by a piece of outdated hardware? What about the lost time in meetings waiting for the presentation to catch up? Then there are missing audio cables, blurry projectors, and colleagues bursting in because they’ve double-booked the room. It can be both embarrassing and costly.
If you’d like to avoid traditional projectors, or you lack the space to mount them, why not consider a Large Format Display (LFD)? LFDs are becoming ever-more popular with organisations due to their excellent image quality and minimal space requirements. Just like a projector, you can plug-and-present with a whole range of devices, including laptops, or use them to cycle through a variety of images or videos throughout your meeting. And, with new touch-screen options, you can focus more on the client and less on your keyboard.
Need something bigger? Projectors are still the meeting-space champions, offering more screen for your money with HD images that could rival lower-cost LFDs. In general, you’ll want a little more space to make the most of your projector setup, but with retractable screens and ceiling-mounted systems, when it’s not in use, you won’t even know it’s there.
A fluid and high-quality screen is a must for any conference room. But, with inaudible speakers or no microphone, your message might be missed. We install a wide range of speaker playback systems that’ll help you bring your presentations to life, with the flexibility to play on-screen audio, connect to local microphones, and ensure you can hear the teams on the other end of a conference call loud and clear. And, whether you’re short on space, looking for something sleek, or need powerful speakers for your spacious office, the in-wall and in-ceiling speaker solutions from Sonance will exceed your expectations
Having to shout so everyone can hear you? By installing a handheld, ceiling-mounted, or microphone pods throughout the room, you’ll be able to give everyone a voice, even in the most spacious of meeting areas.
Sometimes, you’ll want to hold a meeting with people from outside of your organisation, or you’ll need to accommodate attendees that can’t make it to your offices. Using Logitech’s top-of-the-line video conferencing hardware, remote meetings have never been more accessible. You’ll be able to hold face-to-face meetings with clients and team members no matter where they are, and with just a click, share your on-screen presentations with them too.

While we work with a number of reputable brands, when it comes to conference room management and control, there’s nothing Creston can’t do. With this simple to use but advanced software, you’ll be able to see a full schedule of your meeting space, so you can make sure everyone gets their slot. And with the ability to connect with popular conferencing platforms such as Microsoft Teams and Zoom, meetings are easy to manage.
It’s more than just scheduling software too. Crestron’s automation and control solutions allow you to control your entire environment with the push of a button, integrating A/V, lighting, shading, IT, security, BMS, and HVAC systems, all in one place, making it the ultimate tool for comfort, convenience, and security.
All the tech in the world can’t save your presentation, if your clients can’t focus. Flickering lights, a dimly lit room, and glaring lamps could all spell doom for your conference space. That’s why we recommend using dynamic lighting systems like Lutron Quantum, allowing you full control of your lights. Quantum can save you money through efficient running, ensure a comfortable light level with across-room continuity, and adapt to your needs with the tap of a button.
