The Importance of Collaboration Equity in Hybrid Workspaces: Video Displays

Collaboration Equity- Video Displays

Many technologies contribute to collaboration equity within a hybrid workplace. It’s a well-known fact that when project participants feel equally seen and heard, their productivity and effectiveness rises. For remote collaboration, the ability to interact face-to-face and to see what’s happening in the conference or meeting room is important. Video displays are the key to achieving that. When integrated into a hybrid meeting space, displays connect employees visually and in other, helpful interactive ways. 

Utilizing high-quality video displays to show remote participants’ faces gives them a greater and more equal presence in the room and a chance to interact and be involved in conversations. In-person attendees will feel more obliged to include remote participants and will give them equal notice when they can clearly see them. Large video displays also allow content to be shared with in-person attendees and remote employees, meaning everyone has equal access to the documents or content being shown. Having high-quality video displays allow in-room participants to clearly see and interact with remote meeting attendees. When combined with other technologies such as cameras and updated audio systems, the displays simulate a near-real meeting experience for users on both ends.

For flexible meeting spaces, video walls are the go-to solution to provide reliable, high-quality displays. Video walls have more contrast, sharper images and an overall better image. They provide more in the way of flexibility to move around when needed as well. Combining multiple high-quality video displays can create a seamless communication experience for in-person and virtual meeting attendees. In particular, in-person meeting attendees can sit on one side of a conference table with remote attendees being displayed on the other side of the table through vivid video wall imagery. Multiple video walls create a realistic experience for in-person and remote attendees to connect in an ultimate hybrid environment. 

Virtual whiteboards present an easy way to improve collaboration during hybrid meetings. Both remote and in-person attendees can add to these whiteboards, and they can be saved for reference later, creating a living document. In-person employees can add to the document either on a large touchscreen display or on their personal device, and remote employees can also add to it from home. Being able to save the content to use at a later date is beneficial.

Collaboration Equity Introduction

For close to 30 years, Planar has produced a wide range of high-quality video display products, from large video walls to virtual whiteboards. These displays, available from AV Planners, can be integrated into many different environments, including hybrid meeting spaces such as conference rooms and boardrooms. Planar offers both LED and LCD video displays in many different sizes and resolutions, and its LED displays have a touchscreen option.

There’s not a one-size-fits-all integration design for video displays in corporate environments. Factors such as lighting, cabling and room design can require specific technology to complement the existing room aesthetics. Each space will require its own design. An on-site survey can help determine the technology needed to create a high-quality experience for employees.
