The COVID-19 pandemic has forever altered the workplace and learning environments, catalyzing a transformation in how we collaborate. As a result, commercial AV stakeholders must grapple with a series of questions: How are companies pivoting? What technologies might attract people back into shared spaces? How can we make collaboration spaces more intuitive for users.

In this webcast, collaboration experts from leading global integrator AVI-SPL and display solutions leader Sharp/NEC offer insights into the latest trends, ranging from BYOD connectivity, to the move away from “walled garden” solutions and toward interoperability, to the growing power of interactive displays to create effective collaboration experiences.
