Crucial to a Professional Environment
Conference Room AV Systems
What are conference room AV systems? They are digital tools and thoughtful design choices that make your conference room a more efficient space. The right AV system can improve employee satisfaction and increase output from the smallest internal huddles to the most critical leadership meetings.
Video conferencing is at the center of conference room AV design today. Zoom reported it had 10 million users in December of 2019. Just four months later, in April of 2020, it reported over 300 million users. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, video conferencing in American businesses is now widely adopted.

What Makes a Well-Equipped Conference Room
Conference Room Audio Visual Equipment
Discover the most common conference room AV components below.
A display is the focal point of any conference room. It draws attention to visual aids, gives remote participants a seat at the table, and guides discussion through digital presentations. While projectors used to be the gold standard in conference room displays, it’s now more common for digital screens or even LED digital walls to take center stage. Not only do these improve visual clarity and sharpness, but they also contribute to a sleeker, more modern, and more adaptable display. For smaller conference rooms, a single display may be sufficient, but for larger spaces, dual displays or even a triple display may be the best solution for your team. Multi-display setups increase your ability to incorporate more remote participants while still having space to brainstorm, review, or discuss presentations, ideas, or other content.
Video and Conferencing Solutions
Connecting multiple devices and multiple users from around the room or from remote locations takes adaptable digital solutions. The latest phone conferencing systems, along with one-touch Zoom or Microsoft Teams video call solutions, give your team the flexibility to connect in different ways depending on the goals of each meeting.
Clear, reliable audio is a requirement for effective teleconferencing. built-in, surround-sound speakers and multiple microphones improve productivity and increase engagement from your team. At Marshall Industries, we take sound design one step further, improving sound for not just your meeting space but your entire office. We are leaders in sound masking design and sound neutrality engineering. this important part of conference room AV system design keeps your meeting space private while reducing or eliminating noise pollution throughout the rest of your office.
Cameras that connect your conference room to digital meeting rooms help foster connection. High definition cameras prevent outside participants from missing important details that could otherwise be lost in translation.
Control your meeting space with the touch of a button. Integrated conference room AV systems, controlled by intelligent software from an accessible touchscreen panel, help you control each component to match the scope, audience, and goals of any particular meeting. Volume, display settings, and more can be customized to fit the changing needs of your conference space.

Your setup depends entirely on how you plan to use the space, how large your team is, and what your meetings typically entail. For many companies, a comprehensive AV setup gives them confidence they’ll be able to accommodate presentations and groups of all kinds both now and in the future. Our team at Marshall Industries has extensive experience designing conference room AV systems and can work with you to determine what will benefit the efficiency of your team.
Projectors were the standard display of many conference rooms.

Our team has installed both types of displays and can help you decide between these two popular display options.
Professional AV design will offer the best results when it comes to connecting your in-house team to customers or employees outside the office.
