Audio-visual meeting, usually (and helpfully) abbreviated to AV, is an important element of your meeting or event. It can help engage your guests, as well as connect them to your overall message. At the Four Points by Sheraton Norwood, our goal is to provide you with the tools to put on a successful and engaging meeting or event.
Audio-visual meeting contains elements of both sound and video, which when introduced into an event setting, creates a full and total experience to enhance learning and engagement. The term audio-visual refers to a vast range of digital audio and video devices for communication and collaboration. There are several main components of an Audio-Visual system that are necessary to ensure a seamless connection with all attendees.
Visual Displays – projectors, screens, televisions or even laptops
Audio System – Microphones and speakers
Connectivity – Wireless or hard-wired connection
In a time where hybrid meetings (a combination of both in-person and virtual) are more prevalent, an audio-visual meeting can really break down that barrier between in-person attendees and virtual attendees thereby creating a feeling of togetherness. Common platforms like Zoom, Teams, WebEx and Google Meet make it possible for a conference to be held anywhere, any time and with any number of participants.
Our recently renovated conference center comes well-appointed with high quality equipment. Along with on-site coordination and technical assistance, we provide you with a full-service experience. All our meeting packages include high speed wireless internet, ceiling mounted data projector(s), screen(s), handheld lavalier, podium microphones, flipchart and easels with the option of adding additional equipment like a laptop rental or confidence monitor. We can also provide an upgraded element to your event with things like risers, pipes, drapes and stanchions.
