Integrated Video and the Connected Office

Since the release of the first iPhone back in 2007, the prevalence of live video, 24/7 content and remote collaboration in our lives has changed the business landscape in ways we could not have imagined. Despite this fact, many offices throughout the country lack the necessary technology to adequately compete in today’s modern economy. We’ve already discussed in this blog how financial institutions use automation to stay ahead of SEC compliance. Today we will be talking about how distributed content and video conferencing can help you and your business stay ahead of the curve.

Distributed Content

The ability to for you and your employees stay up-to-date with a rapidly changing world, simply put, could drastically affect your bottom line. Using Crestron Control systems, audio and 4K video content can be distributed to an unlimited number of HD displays throughout your office. This provides you and your team the tools to stay up to the minute with information relevant to your industry, which allows you to make more informed business decisions.

One of the ways we bring this distributed content to the next level, especially in the financial industry, is through our one of a kind trader desk audio solution. This tool gives every trader or analyst in your financial firm access to tune into any potential audio/video source in the office utilizing a desktop screen with speaker and built-in headphone jack. This means everything from tuning into the latest financial news on Bloomberg Television to collaborating with other team members on a project without having to step away from their terminal.

Video Conferencing

Thanks to advances in technology, the live video experience is becoming increasingly seamless, and continues to enable employees to communicate in a much more effective way.

Leveraging our relationships with video conference software leaders, as well as ClearOne video conferencing products, GMI is able to integrate the latest and greatest live video technology directly into a Creston Control system for distribution throughout your office. This allows for face-to-face remote meetings from any room or desk in your office. Psychologists argue that face-to-face communication helps to ‘sync’ our brains, and live video conferencing makes that connection possible by overcoming the distance barrier and allowing for a truly collaborative environment.

Taking such a quantum leap in your office technology is not without natural fear factor for managers and employees alike. This is where GMI separates ourselves from the competition. We make sure that every member of your team has the knowledge and confidence they need to use the system to their desired level. No matter the complexity of a control system we work to make it’s use second nature, making it manageable for all the end users.
