by SUMMIT on September 30th, 2014

Today, governments at the local, state, and federal levels depend on high quality audio/video (AV) technology. Whether it is efficient workstations, conference facilities, projectors, or briefing rooms, government agencies require professional grade AV systems that will help them deliver the quality of service that the public expects and demands. The following are 5 must have AV solutions for government agencies:

1)    Unified Communication/Phone Systems: Simple, efficient, and reliable phone systems are an essential component of any successful government agency. In today’s world, phone systems must offer a complex array of features – voicemail, desktop faxing, teleconferencing, call reporting, music-on-hold, and unified communications – but integrate these diverse applications seamlessly. For now and foreseeable future, phone communication will remain the primary method most citizens use to connect with government agencies and public servants. Therefore, it is imperative that government agencies utilize phone systems that meet today’s highest standards.

2)    Video conferencing: Video conferencing has become an essential tool for both businesses and government agencies. The ability of government leaders and decision-makers to meet and discuss matters from remote locations is a powerful tool that saves time and money while enhancing productivity. Video conferencing can improve communications within government agencies, between government agencies, and potentially between ordinary citizens and the agencies that serve them.

3)    Audio/Video and PA Systems: Government agencies at all levels require PA systems, projectors, and other audio/visual systems. These systems are useful for training purposes, presentations, and other forms of communications. Having systems that are simple to use, yet flexible, reliable, and up-to-date can greatly improve the efficiency and effectiveness of government agencies.

4)    Wireless Communication: Wi-Fi has become essential to our increasingly mobile world. Wireless technology and communications greatly enhances operational and employee efficiency and flexibility. With Wi-Fi, government workers and leaders can be more connected, in-touch, and productive than ever before. They can interact and communicate with their peers from remote locations and from a variety of devices, thus enhancing accessibility and collaborative potential. As always, secure communications are a paramount concern when it comes to Wi-Fi.

5)    Cable management: Today’s top-speed communication depends on a network infrastructure that includes high-bandwidth fiber optic cables, copper wiring, and the like. Conference centers, press briefing rooms, and agency work stations all require the cable wiring and maintenance programs that will keep these systems operating smoothly.

Today, government agencies need AV systems that are secure, flexible, efficient, reliable, and up-to-date. At the Pentagon, commanders utilize video conferencing technology to communicate with troops on the frontlines. Needless to say, high-quality communications are a priority in all areas of government. Similarly, secure conferencing and wireless communication is also essential in government. Leaders need to be sure that that the systems and devices they utilize can provide the confidentially their job requires. The demands on government agencies and workers have never been greater. However, AV systems are helping public servants do their jobs more efficiently and effectively.   The public expects government to match the private sector when it comes to delivering services and getting results. The right AV solutions can help government agencies deliver on those expectations.
