Sharing Content Across Platforms is Essential

Posted by Julia Sherwin on Sep 13, 2019 2:49:30 PM

If you're ever seen an article about "BYOD" (bring your own device) you probably know the term sometimes evokes fear and uncertainty. Privacy issues loom when employees use their personal devices for business purposes. Yet, as strategies and policies have been adopted across organizations, many realize that employees are highly productive when they're using their personal devices--from smartphones to laptops. These devices often help employees meet deadlines and create important, time-sensitive documents, photos or presentations. Considering personal devices a risk is no longer common practice because sharing and collaboration is vitally essential to any successful venture. With those security concerns addressed, employees can share information among their co-workers and clients, collaborating seamlessly using a variety of devices.

Conferencing Solutions Can Be Easy

Posted by Julia Sherwin on Aug 23, 2019 3:19:14 PM

As work spaces and the way we work is ever changing, we need audio-visual technologies to be implemented with ease. Currently, there are roughly 7 million conference rooms in the United States, but many of us are using co-working spaces or home offices. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, about 23 percent of the U.S. workforce works remotely at least part of the time. These changes require products and solutions to accommodate both people and organizations.

Weekly Worship Transformed by Live Stream

Posted by Julia Sherwin on Aug 16, 2019 3:21:23 PM

Recently, the Conference Room Systems crew visited the Olivet United Methodist Church in Coatesville, Pa., to check in on some PTZOptics cameras that they purchased from us in late 2018. Did you know that CRS has a suite of products that are being used by houses of worship to live stream their services? Olivet, like many houses of worship we help throughout the United States, incorporates a live stream as part of its weekly service. Members of the church say the weekly live stream has allowed not only the worshipers inside the church to see the service projected onto two large screens but also congregants at home or those out of state are able to tune in. Additionally, the larger screens have also helped visually impaired congregants who have found the larger print on those screens easier to read, helping them to participate in weekly services. 

We asked Mike Givler, whose been heading the church's live streaming efforts, some questions about his experience:

Live Video Streaming for Radio Broadcasts

Posted by Julia Sherwin on Jul 19, 2019 1:47:20 PM

Radio station owners across the country can rejoice. The medium is far from dead. According to a Nielsen Total Audience Report based on first quarter 2019 data, 92 percent of U.S. adults listen to radio each week, the highest of any platform. Accompanying radio’s resilience is the massive growth of live video streaming, which initially began with individuals posting content to Facebook or Instagram Live, in addition to a variety of streaming apps. However, as live video streamers have grown into professional producers of content for outlets such as YouTube and Twitch, there is a growing demand among traditional media outlets, including radio, to incorporate live video streaming as part of their regular broadcasts.
