Small Rooms Are the Big Trend in Conferencing

Conference rooms have been a hallmark of corporate offices. However, a shift in the workforce due to the pandemic is evolving their use. To discuss this evolution, David Garlett, Manager, Key Accounts & Consultant Liaison at Audix, joined On-Axis.

Garlett is a lifelong AV expert who has worked in various segments, including manufacturers, integrators and systems design.

Garlett described the post-COVID conference room. “[In] outfitting a conference room for executive teams and employees, it was easy to justify the costs. Now, it’s a single person in the room managing a team of remote attendees. As a result, the overall cost and requirements changed.”

The industry had to pivot to adapt to the market change. “We had to simplify the room. Instead of something elaborate and complex, we needed to get to the basics of being heard, seen and able to share content,” Garlett said.

Rooms are now smaller, and Garlett witnessed a resurgence of practical microphones. “Customers want the technology to work and be easy.”

Audix is helping the end-user and integrators understand the performance of different equipment. The company built a conference room and interacted with stakeholders on video calls, demonstrating the microphone in real-world applications. “We couldn’t do this in person. The end-user is also participating now. It’s a way to be transparent and objective on how well the microphone works,” Garlett noted.

As for the future of conference rooms, Garlett surmised that it will be a hybrid and that video conferencing will still be in heavy use. The realm of conferencing will continue to change to meet market needs.
