The Luck of the Irish - and A-V
“I find the harder I work, the more luck I seem to have.”
St. Patrick’s Day 2020 is upon us, & people of all backgrounds & cultures are once again proud to proclaim themselves “Irish for a day.” Along with all the green revelry associated with this holiday, it also brings LUCK to mind. Although the expression “The Luck of the Irish” was originally not meant as a flattering one when it was first uttered back in the latter half of the 19th century, it means only good things in modern times. In Gaelic, the phrase “Go n-eirí an t-ádh leat” is one of the many ways of wishing someone ‘good luck’ - with its literal meaning being, ‘That luck may rise with you!’
And speaking of luck - it seems that a good measure of it has been following the Audio-Visual industry for the past couple of years, as the increasing demand for tech solutions among both commercial & residential users has consistently trended upward. And Captus Systems is here to help spread “Audio-Visual Luck” to you & your organization!
Over the past decade, that which has defined the “meeting experience” has changed dramatically in order to fit today’s competitive business model - along with its economical, ecological, & technological requirements. And in today’s uncertain times, collaboration is taking-on a whole new form. Gone are the large gatherings of yesteryear when one presenter took the helm while all participants sat attentively within the same space. The modern meeting consists of many participants – all contributing in some way or another – coming together from many different locations. BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) & BYOM (Bring Your Own Meeting) have become the new buzzwords for collaboration, & video conferencing & telecommuting are fast becoming the standard protocols of today. Whether it’s for large, traditional boardrooms or smaller huddle spaces, Captus Systems is proud to offer the very best in AV Tools to its customers from leading manufacturers in the AV sector. Companies like LG & Planar – offer cutting-edge display screen technology that helps to facilitate the very best in collaboration productivity. From video displays, to control hardware, to interconnects, interfaces, & infrastructure – the tools of the trade from the AV industry make ANYTHING possible for today’s meeting spaces! For example, ceiling mics are highly desirable apparatus for any modern collaboration space, & they’ve come a long way, baby! Shure & ClearOne are among the top manufacturers who offer cutting-edge audio devices. And - with Cloud-based platforms like Starleaf, Cisco Webex, & Zoom - the need for meeting participants to fly thousands of miles to “be in the room” is no longer necessary. With more & more organizations making use of tele-collaborating, carbon footprints are being slashed, & that has great ecological benefits. The term “face-to-face” has truly taken-on a whole new meaning...Close Encounters of a Brand-New Kind!
Even though there’s not the usual parade-like fanfare taking place this year because of the current public health crisis, it’s still St. Patrick’s Day - & we hope you’re able to enjoy yourselves, no matter how you choose to celebrate! So…“Sláinte!” (Cheers) to you on St. Patrick’s Day 2020 - & beyond! May the road always rise-up to meet you, & may the wind ever be at your back.
Yeah. We’ve Got This!
