Heath Robinson vs HDL300

When it comes to ensuring your meeting room technology does what is required, do you find yourself being creative in order to accommodate the poor audio available with your current set-up? Would Heath be proud of your ingenuity, and does it offer you and your meeting attendees what’s required? If so, congratulations, you’ve made a silk purse from a sow’s ear so to speak. If you are still having issues with being heard in a remote meeting, then you should consider the HDL300 from Nureva – THIS IS WHAT IT WAS DESIGNED FOR.

The problem with most meeting room audio technology, it was designed for people to sit around a table facing the microphones, and not moving around or facing away. Some vendors offered solutions involving multiple hardware microphones which require expensive setup and calibration – they work but empty your pockets quite rapidly.

Nureva looked at this problem and figured there was a need for additional microphones in the meeting space – in fact they opted for 8192 microphones in total, but wait – these are not physical microphones, but very cleverly designed virtual microphones that ensure wherever you are moving within the meeting space, you can be clearly heard. Microphone mist, as they are calling it, offers an affordable solution to meeting room misery

If you need convincing – just book a remote demo and see and hear for yourself how this innovative solution brings the humble meeting room into the 21st century

How do I stay on top of the constant changes?

#TrustInPartnership

Whatever your perspective, I think we would all probably agree, that for the IT and Telecoms reseller, things have certainly changed, and continue to do so. The vendor landscape continues to evolve too, with new vendors appearing, with innovative offerings, and many established vendors consolidating as they vie for position in an increasingly crowded marketplace.

For the consumers of the technology (the customers), things are forever changing too. Factors affecting their businesses are arriving at such a pace, and with their business cost base being under constant pressure, many are running on very lean staffing numbers. This compounds to effect somewhat.

What we have is more change and a greater pace of change, more vendors, more innovation, fewer staff, greater challenges and the same amount of time in each and every day.

How does a business stay on top of all of this and remain current with technology that can give them an advantage, or stop them being exposed, as well as attract and retain staff as a great place to work.

In life, and in business, for me, it’s about relationships – building trusted relationships, where over time you can outsource some of this to a specialist or specialists – ensuring you can focus on the business of running your business – and generally, the smaller specialist businesses are more likely to offer you the long term relationship building opportunity, as they are more often than not, owner-run and they are therefore unlikely to leave the business to work at a competitor, leaving you with the what to do dilema.

Trust Strike Ascentae Deal

Creative Workspace SolutionsTrust Business Partners has announced a new contract with Ascentae to support growth into the UC VAR space. Trust will provide business consulting services to support the growth strategy of Ascentae, a fledgling UK distributor of AV equipment and services.

David Pitts and Graham Bunting will be working with Jon Knight of Ascentae to promote CREATIVE WORKPLACE SOLUTIONS as a key differentiator for UC VAR’s to sell more to their existing customers and make them stickier.

It’s a debate that many businesses face as they ponder the possibilities of digital transformation. How can the benefits of greater collaboration be embraced without losing all paper-based processes? The business value of improving collaborative opportunities may be obvious, however, there seems to be a degree of apprehension when it comes to transferring to digital. One major barrier to change is workplace culture and the reluctance to introduce new technology for fear of disrupting tried and tested processes. Organisations want to take small steps towards a new working world rather than a giant leap to overhaul existing practices.

Ascentae’s exclusive distribution agreements include the Nureva HDL300 Audio conferencing technology. At the heart of the HDL300 is Microphone Mist technology, which fills the room with 8,192 virtual microphones.

Listening to all microphones simultaneously, it dynamically selects the one closest to the speaker, ensuring the best quality sound for remote listeners.

“Trust and integrity are the foundations of partnerships,’ says Graham Bunting ‘and we are looking forward to working with Ascentae to help grow and expand their business.”
