ModulIT and AVTEQ at ISE 2014

February 11, 2014 by AVTEQ No Comments

Over the last 12 months, we have seen our international sales grow.  This is due, in part, to our amazing European distributor, ModulIT.  In February, ModulIT exhibited at the Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2014 show in Amsterdam showcased several of our AV carts and collaboration solutions. Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) combines CEDIA and InfoComm under one conference, which drew 47,000 attendees.  The European market is somewhat different than here in the states where we differentiate commercial versus residential.  ISE is all about AV and doesn’t differentiate between markets.  This is good for AVTEQ since many of our products can cross the lines between office and home. ModulIT has definitely seen a pick of business in recent months.  They have recruited new distributors in France, Denmark, Germany, UK and Finland.  As these new partners come up to speed on the AVTEQ product line, we have seen an increase in interest.

Videoconferencing Opens New Doors to Learning

December 10, 2013 by AVTEQ No Comments

Harnessing children’s energy and attention, given the traditional classroom structure and curriculum, has challenged educators for years. But today, videoconferencing is enabling savvy educators to open their classroom doors and transport their students across the time and space continuum to exciting interconnected, technology-filled worlds. In fact, videoconferencing has eclipsed the physical limitations of the classroom, inviting and encouraging teachers and children to imagine, engage and think with amazing results. Videoconferencing provides live learning, which allows students to ”‘walk” through the Amazon rain forest with a Naturalist, talk with Scientists and compare life with other kids in far off places. The moment children “step into” a hospital laboratory, stroll through an art gallery or talk with an athlete in the locker room , the real-time conversations spark imagination and intellectual development. Referred to as “virtual field trips”, students learn and interact dynamically and multi-dimensionally with presenters, each being able to see […]

Welcome to the Huddle Room

November 5, 2013 by AVTEQ No Comments

The office landscape has really been changing over the last few years. Open spaces, cubicles and huddle rooms are now the norm in many companies.  Where once there were large conference rooms to accommodate 20 people, we are now seeing smaller rooms where three or four people can have impromptu huddles to work collaboratively. A few months ago, we had one of our largest customers in for a planning meeting to discuss our TeamSpace furniture. They were converting a number of their offices into huddle rooms.  Their vision was to provide small collaborative workspaces throughout their office where teams could meet.  Each huddle room would be equipped with a table, chairs and A/V equipment to support virtual meetings. Because our client’s huddle rooms were relatively small, they were excited about the compact size of our TeamSpace furniture. TeamSpace combines a worktable, screen mounting system, equipment storage and videoconferencing camera shelf […]

Highlights from NeoCon East

October 29, 2013 by AVTEQ No Comments

AVTEQ attended NeoCon East for the first time this year. Armed with our TeamFlex chairs and select A/V collaboration furniture, we took to the show floors with full force. Despite the government shutdown during the same time, attendance was only down 5% from last year.  Many of the people walking the show floors were key decision makers and had specific projects they were working on.  We were pleased at the over whelming response to our products.  Here are some of the highlights. Top Three Takeaways NeoCon East was the official launch of our TeamFlex chairs and an introduction of our A/V furniture to this market.  Here’s what we learned: The TeamFlex chairs were a huge hit — especially the red demi-glaze, which was a real show stopper. The furniture reps were very interested and excited in how they can expand into the A/V space with our products. Our TeamSpace with […]

Powdered Coating Steel – Why should you care?

May 21, 2013 by AVTEQ No Comments

Do you ever wonder how we produce the steel components of our AV carts and videoconferencing furniture for maximum quality and durability?  One component is our beautiful powder coating finish. So what exactly is powder coating, and why should you care? Powder coating is a dry finish applied to metal parts that can be both functional and decorative. It is applied as a dry powder. The result is an attractive finish, similar to that of liquid paint, but much more durable. How it works Powder coat is most commonly applied using an electrostatic gun, and does not require a solvent. The gun creates a positive charge to the powder, which is sprayed on and adheres to a grounded metal part. After the powder has been applied, the part is cured in an oven. The high temperatures melt down the powder, creating a film or “skin” for a smooth, protective finish. […]

Best AV Carts for Mobile Videoconferencing

May 7, 2013 by Marjie No Comments

The videoconferencing landscape has changed dramatically with the introduction and evolution of mobile technology. While some companies continue to utilize dedicated videoconferencing rooms, many have shifted to mobile solutions, allowing virtually any space to be transformed into a videoconferencing room. If you are creating a mobile videoconferencing solution that can be used in multiple rooms, traditional fixed videoconferencing furniture won’t do the job. You need to consider mobile AV carts that were designed for transition and transportation from one room to the next. Mobility Mobility is the primary consideration when looking for a cart for your mobile videoconferencing technology. The AVTEQ RPS Series AV carts vary in range from high-level videoconferencing carts that support dual 70-inch monitors to basic steel roll-about carts that hold a single 32-inch screen. You’re not simply looking for a “cart on wheels.” The best AV carts are designed specifically for AV use and are made […]
