THE GIANT LED SCREEN, THE FUTURE OF OUR MEETING ROOMS?
The covid-19 crisis has transformed our work habits and our relationship to digital. Indeed, with the confinements, telework has taken on a greater role as well as the use of videoconferences. In addition, digital tools have become essential in the daily work of many of us. We are therefore increasingly looking for qualitative and ergonomic solutions to optimize our daily tasks.
However, at the same time, giant LED screen solutions are becoming more democratic and innovative to correspond to the Indoor market and to compete with LCD screens. This is why more and more companies are using these solutions for their meeting rooms. We take stock.
Screens are more and more present around us. This is as valid in our daily lives as it is at work. This is due in particular to the digitization of work and the preference for computer media. Indeed, technologies fascinate and play the role of facilitator. Thus, letters have become emails, accounting books have become spreadsheets and communication has become increasingly digital and social media.
Screens at work, therefore, promote exchanges and play a role as communication media. They also allow the use of visuals as work support or to exhibit creations or results. They thus facilitate access to and understanding of information.
This is why they are investing more and more in meeting rooms. During these, they can be used not only as a broadcast medium but also for life and more interactive note-taking between the participants or even for the videoconference.
EVOLUTION OF THE USE OF VIDEO CONFERENCING
Videoconferencing has become an essential communication tool in business. Some experts even agree that the health crisis would have saved 5 years in the use of this tool. Like, for example, Zoom, saw its turnover jump 326% during its last financial year. Indeed, in the space of a year, videoconferencing has established itself in business meetings.
A study conducted by Owl Labs indicates that 60% of workers surveyed say they attended meetings more often in 2020 than in 2019.
Video meetings have many advantages. They promote the integration of remote employees in discussions in a more user-friendly way than by simple phone calls. They also have a positive economic and ecological impact by reducing travel in particular. In addition, it has often been demonstrated the positive effect on the productivity of meetings by adding a more interactive dimension to them.
Finally, this greater use of videoconferencing is also correlated with the development of telework. A trend that is also one of the consequences of the health crisis. Indeed in 2020, they were 31% of employees, i.e. almost 1/3 to use telework with an average of 3.6 days per week. The fact that companies are increasingly using external service providers for development missions also contributes to the greater use of video meetings.
WHY THE GIANT LED SCREEN IS INCREASINGLY USED IN MEETING ROOMS
As mentioned above, the need for visual support is increasingly important and is part of our daily lives. The rise of videoconferencing is also favorable to screens. But as users, we are more and more demanding vis-à-vis the screens. We are looking for a quality image with often larger and larger formats.
Giant LED screens offer more format flexibility. Thus, unlike the LCD, they can adapt to the space available in the meeting room. Indeed, LED screens are completely modular in both shape and size. Plus, thanks to advances in LED technology, they now deliver superb image quality even up close with deeper blacks and vivid colors.
Similarly, they are easier to use than a video projector and allow you to easily connect several sources and especially to divide the display.
Finally, LED solutions are becoming more democratic. Indeed, technologies are evolving and making it possible to offer high-quality indoor solutions affordable to companies with lower consumption. Using the giant LED screen also creates the wow effect when you receive partners in the meeting room. Thus, the company affirms its positioning as modern and qualitative.
THE GIANT LED SCREEN IS THE SOLUTION TO MEET THE NEEDS OF MEETING ROOMS
Giant LED screens are therefore investing more and more meeting rooms. This observation can therefore be explained by a favorable context for digital media. Indeed, more and more work tools are going digital and the health crisis has reinforced remote work and the use of videoconferences.
LED screens are therefore responding to a need for digital support and are gradually supplanting the previous solutions used, the LCD and video projectors. Indeed, these solutions offer great installation flexibility for better image quality.
Admittedly, this solution was for a long time positioned as top of the range. However, LED solutions are becoming more democratic and so are their prices. This, therefore, suggests an increasingly massive use of giant LED screens in corporate meeting rooms. This should make video conferencing easier.
