This instructor-led webinar is built specifically for IT professionals looking to explore the latest AV concepts and techniques.  

Today’s AV technology managers are responsible for hundreds if not thousands of meeting spaces, and the biggest pain-point for most of them is this: their users know about meeting room issues before they do. In this session we’ll discuss monitoring best practices, industry trends, and the current market of monitoring tools. We’ll lay out a series of practical steps towards single panel of glass monitoring, explore benefits of centralized data collection, investigate why AV monitoring is so hard in the first place, and discuss what we can do as an industry to fix it.
