Understanding the User Experience

David Thorson, AVI-SPL Senior Manager, Programming Architecture

What makes technology user-friendly? You can improve the use and productivity of integrated systems through thoughtful user experience design. This session will explore specific ways to improve user experience with technology. We'll examine good and bad user experiences, looking at automation programming, graphic design, and system design. Along the way, we'll dispel common misconceptions about user interface programming and discuss how to leverage existing behaviors to create seamless user experiences.

Workplace Transformation, UC & Collaboration Spaces

AVI-SPL advocates for workplace transformation – the kind of transformation that evolves offices from isolated cubicles to open spaces, huddle rooms, and similar areas that inspire collaboration among coworkers, and that turn meetings into sessions where real work gets done. We’ve designed and deployed more meeting spaces than any other integrator. Manufacturers on the tour: Crestron, ClearOne, Polycom, Oblong, Cisco, Microsoft

Examining better UC metrics for better results

Few organizations actually gather the details about how they collaborate (number of meetings, number of participants, number of calls, etc.) Even less of them examine these numbers to look for opportunities for service improvement. New, automated systems that gather and examine these metrics are available, and are a gold mine of data that can be used to identify problems, right-size deployed technologies, and reveal good trends that should be encouraged and bad trends that should be addressed. This session and panel discussion will detail how these systems and services work, and highlight areas where they can be used to improve both collaboration services and users' perception of them.

UC Managed Services in an IoT world

Additionally, every device that's on the network can and should now be managed, redefining what it means to offer managed services in the first place. Join us to hear a panel of experts who will detail the new offerings and processes that are available, and that can help secure and protect your endpoints and systems.

Control Room Environments and Video Processing Technology

We’ll take your project from start to finish: design, build, integrate, and support. We understand and apply the best practices for command and control centers, including those related to room use, the right displays for your content, and ergonomics.

The integrated systems we provide are built to mission-critical specific design, while adhering to environmental standards. That dedication to rigor is why we’ve led over 400 control room installations across all markets. Our extensive expertise and experience allows us to create industry-standard systems that are scalable and unite all of the technology utilized within the modern control center.

AVI-SPL works with the manufacturers in this tour to create solutions that help process and distribute high-quality video signals so they can be windowed across a display wall and distributed over an IP network. Manufacturers on the tour: Mitsubishi, Crestron, Barco, Samsung, RGB Spectrum

UC Ecosystems and the Millennial Workflow

In recent years collaboration technologies have begun to move away from discrete tools and toward the support of seamless workflows. Applications such as Slack, Cisco Webex Teams and Microsoft Teams not only require the users to understand the technology, but require a change to the way one works- supporting this workflow BEYOND the meeting. At this presentation and discussion find out exactly what this will mean for your organization.
