If you haven’t already, it’s time to put your AV plans in place for 2022. Staying up to date on the technology and trends expected for next year will help your organization build out a strategy and utilize it successfully.
Whether you’re looking for inspiration for a 2022 AV/VC strategy, or for the right tools to put your existing plan into motion, check out this AV/VC technology guide for 2022.
1. Touchless Tech
The COVID-19 pandemic has created a demand for touchless and automated systems so users can conduct the tasks they need, while still taking steps to reduce virus transmission risk. Now, people have become accustomed to not only the safety these features provide, but the convenience too.
For example, motion sensors in shared workspaces and conference rooms can turn the lights on and power up the projector or video screen without the user having to do anything besides walk in the room. We can expect to see touchless technology incorporated in far more workplaces in 2022.
2. Video Walls
Video walls have started their rise in popularity, and we can expect to see that continue through next year. We’re seeing video walls replace projection screens in a lot of instances because they have higher resolutions and may not be as affected by poor lighting or other environmental conditions.
Video walls are great options for commercial spaces that need large displays or educational institutions who need to equip lecture halls with more efficient technology than a projector screen.
3. Dynamic Digital Displays
Dynamic digital displays are gaining popularity in part for the same reason as video walls, but they go a step further. They can be programmed to display information in an interactive way that users can use to complete an experience.
Some examples include:
- Patients in healthcare facilities can have a paperless check-in process by completing their intake forms via a dynamic digital display
- Companies at conferences and tradeshows can display their schedules, give attendees information, and capture leads via a dynamic digital display
- Visitors to a business can access important information like maps, schedules, and FAQs that are continuously updated in real time
That’s just the beginning of what you can accomplish with a dynamic digital display in the upcoming year; the possibilities are truly endless.
4. AV as a Service
One of the best ways organizations can ensure they have the best technology available to them is to join the trend of AV as a Service (AVaaS). With AVaaS, a single monthly subscription can give you access to everything you need for the best possible AV/VC setup: technology upgrades, flexible lifecycle terms, on-demand support, KPI tracking, and so much more.
