Wireless presentation systems are becoming more and more popular in schools and offices worldwide. They are easy to use once you set them up and they allow you to eliminate the endless amount of wires and cables that are usually necessary when connecting your device to a projector system in a classroom or boardroom.
Presentation systems are also on a list of ways to impress clients, as we have mentioned in a previous post on techandtrends.com. The article mentioned an idea from an engineer at Videonations that stated that companies who choose to use things like presentations systems and other technological advances have more of a chance of winning over big-contract clients.
In this piece we are going to focus on the many benefits of wireless presentation systems.
Easy Content Sharing
The most well-known and espoused benefit of using wireless presentation systems is sharing content with others easily. You can easily display data and rich media content from a mobile device like a tablet or even a smartphone, with the press of a button. You no longer have to hook up your device to a number of cables in order to do a presentation in a boardroom; you simply have to connect to the wireless network and stream your content.
Besides sharing presentations and content you can also use wireless presentation systems to receive presentations and other pieces of content from others in the room, or remotely. If you are present in a meeting and want to be able to refer back to the information, you can have the presenter send the data to the device of your choice. This can make people more productive, too, since it’ll give them the opportunity to follow up on info presented in a meeting.
There are times when several people will need to collaborate on a presentation in order to tackle a specific task or issue. Sharing information between team members can be a hurdle but the aforementioned ability to send presentations from one device to another can help.
Wireless presentation systems also offer easier ways to present collaborative work. Before this technology each team member would have to connect their individual device to a monitor or projector in order to share their data. This would take up time since other devices would have to be disconnected when switching between presenters. The only other solution was to use the same Master device, rarely practical when stakeholders have been working from different locations, or on different areas of a problem. The wireless presentation systems allow people to switch from one device to another without having to fiddle with wires and cables and without stopping the presentation. This makes the collaborative presentation process seamless and faster.
Archiving Presentations for Future Use
Finally, you can also choose to save and share presentations, and annotations/notes, in order to refer back to them in the future. If the presentation has important data that needs to be constantly referred to, your presentation system can allow you to record and save the data. This can allow team members to access the data at any time from their own devices. This will allow everyone to stay informed on a given subject. This concept can also be used with training materials. In this capacity your new employees can refer to training materials as they begin work. This also eliminates the need for producing training materials over and over again since it’ll all be saved in one location.
These are just a handful of uses for wireless presentation systems in an office setting. There are a number of other uses and benefits in the corporate world and a number of others in the academic world, too. Consider adding a wireless presentation system to your office or classroom and start reaping the benefits of this popular technology.
