Talking Turkey
Talking Turkey

With the Thanksgiving holiday upon us, so begins a period of reflection, gratitude, and thankfulness. As we gather with family and friends around the turkey, these thoughts run deep among us on a very personal level. But when you think about the other big portion of your life – your work self – do you have any thoughts about gratitude in that arena? Maybe it’s feeling thankful for your co-workers…your “second family.” Or perhaps, you’ve received a new title, promotion, or raise this past year. Or maybe – you’ve even started a brand-new job, setting your career path on a completely different course! The science of gratitude & its positive effects on the brain has been an intensely-studied hot topic in recent years. More specifically – the purposeful use of gratitude as a tool in business has been proven to be both beneficial and essential to all high-functioning organizations. “People work harder if they feel that what they are doing has meaning. Having a clear sense of purpose gives people a stronger sense of meaning, and improves their satisfaction at work,” says Jennifer Aaker, Stanford Graduate School of Business General Atlantic Professor of Marketing. “One large-scale study, which included 12,000 employees across a broad range of categories…showed that the employees who did derive meaning from their work were more than 3x as likely to stay with their companies, had 1.7x higher job satisfaction, & were 1.4x more engaged at work.” Globoforce – a leader in the study of the impact of gratitude on the workforce - has been conducting research in this field in over 50 countries worldwide Their studies (among other institutions studying this topic) have proven that the benefits of practicing gratitude in the workplace leads to a multitude of improvements on many levels. These positive gratitude by-products include both cost & performance-related components, such as productivity, profitability, loyalty, attendance, quality of work, & many others. These types of studies contend that the importance of recognizing & celebrating the contributions of a company & its team members is paramount to a business becoming the very best version of itself. Chief among these findings as related to the office setting are as follows: - Gratitude facilitates better sleep, which makes for a more alert, productive, & creative staff. - Gratitude reduces excessive entitlement: A person who feels entitled is grateful for nothing, which can lead to a toxic work environment. Grateful employees produce a higher frequency & level of positive emotions among their peers & management, which fosters an overall feeling of enthusiasm & optimism – which ultimately leads to a higher quality of work output, & to caring more about the company in general. - Gratitude drives workers to contribute more to their organization: Gratitude promotes innovative thinking, creativity, flexibility, curiosity, openness, & a true love of learning. As is stated by Catherine Stantus of Gelbgroup Consulting, “You literally cannot overplay the hand of gratitude; the grateful mind reaps massive benefits in every domain of life that has been examined so far. Gratitude is the ultimate performance-enhancing substance.” We at Captus Systems are grateful for many things, including…having a terrific year watching our company grow, our business partners – both in the field & in the office, our dedicated staff, & last but not least – our clients. We are thankful to have had a good, strong beginning to our journey, & look forward to continuing along this path as we grow ever more. Captus Systems hopes that you & yours have a Happy, Safe, & Delicious Thanksgiving Holiday. We wish you great success with your businesses & beyond - & also, that your gratitude list grows throughout this holiday season, & beyond!

Technology is ubiquitous – it’s all around us! Today, we’re going to talk about the ways in which tech is transforming communication and collaboration for seamless connectivity. Fully Adaptable platforms Gone are the days of having to travel halfway across the globe for a face-to-face meeting. Fully interoperable platforms are among the most exciting technological advancements in the commercial AV sector. Today, you can use any number or combination of devices to collaborate with people. The Cloud extends that relationship to virtually any place on the planet - at any time. No matter what device(s) you and your colleagues use for collaboration - desktops or laptops, iPhone or Android, Microsoft Surface Hub, or WebEx TeamBoard (formerly known as SparkRoom) - the platforms of choice available from Zoom, Cisco, Skype for Business, StarLeaf, and others meet your collaboration needs seamlessly. Connecting and meeting with your team and partners around the country - or around the world - is easier than ever before! Modernized Conference Rooms Showing-up for a meeting well-prepared is a given, so naturally, you want to be sure that your material will be seen and heard by everyone - no matter where on Earth they’re actually located. With all-in-one conferencing solutions by Crestron, meetings are a breeze to execute. All of your content can be wirelessly shared using AirMedia, making it effortless to manage and present your information. To be seen with crystal clarity, a Captus Systems fully-engineered and designed conference room will include 4K PTZ cameras from companies like AVer and Vaddio, which will focus on individual speakers. This type of technology makes all participants feel like they are literally in the same room where a meeting is taking place, without having to actually be there. These kinds of tools have forever changed the collaboration world for the better! Going, Going, Gone to 4K 4K is now the standard in the commercial conference room space. Using 4K technology for meetings means that it is no longer a struggle to clearly see what is being presented on screen. Say goodbye to squinting! Dante and AVB Audio is now an IT discipline. Dante & AVB extend the performance of highly sensitive IP-enabled microphone systems, exponentially. BiAmp’s Tesiraforte and Tesira Server are the brain that allows for all callers to be heard with the same clarity, whether they are on via Cloud Conferencing, VoIP, or a traditional phone. This ensures that no one has to strain to hear what is said, ever again. One-Touch Solutions We know that nobody wants to touch the AV in the room! For this reason, one-touch solutions are not only preferred, but highly sought after. Rooms designed by Captus Systems using products from Crestron, QSC, BiAmp, or Atlona – just to name a few – allow for users to have the confidence to operate the AV technology with ease. A Captus Systems designed solution will streamline conferences, and eliminate all possible confusion.

Keeping up With Collaboration Trends
Keeping up With Collaboration Trends

October 16, 2018 – New York City, NY: Gerald Abualy, CEO of Captus Systems, was one of many industry leaders included in this by-invitation-only "Maverick Connect on the Road" event, sponsored by Tech Data. Thank you to Steelcase for the terrific venue, and opportunity to tour their state-of-the-art showroom.

The CEO Goes Back to School…
The CEO Goes Back to School…

October 30, 2018 – Molloy College, Rockville Centre, NY: Gerry Abualy, CEO of Captus Systems, LLC, got a chance to pay it forward. At the request of Professor Steven Kent, PhD, of the Molloy College Business school, Mr. Abualy was asked to speak to a group which included business students who are members of Molloy’s Entrepreneurial Club. The well-attended intimate “Fireside Chat” setting provided the unique opportunity for Professor Kent, Mr. Abualy, and the students to have an in-depth conversation about the benefits and challenges of entrepreneurship. After Professor Kent’s introduction of Mr. Abualy, the presentation grew out of an informal “Q&A” format, with Professor Kent asking Gerry specifics about his career experiences. The floor was also opened-up to the students, who were encouraged to ask questions of Gerry. Some of the topics covered at the event were…best business practices, the importance of putting processes into place, controlling one’s destiny in the workplace, infrastructure and distribution, the pros and cons of “owning” vs. “leasing” business tools, the Cloud-based technology available to today’s companies, the advantage of predicting future trends, and of course - sales. When asked by one of the students about what NOT to do when embarking on an entrepreneurial journey, Gerry gave this sage advice: “Never be afraid to try new things early in your career. “Mistakes” should not define a person as a failure, but instead, they should be considered a valuable learning experience from where one can grow.” Another very significant tidbit shared by Gerry, was that “One should always understand the customer’s experience from their point of view. This is an important cornerstone upon which any successful business is built.” All in all, this experience was beneficial to everyone in attendance. The students gained invaluable knowledge culled from Gerry’s years of business expertise – and in turn, Gerry was excited to mentor young entrepreneurs at the beginning of their careers. Thank you, Professor Kent, Dean Mackenzie (Molly College’s Business School Director and MBA Program Professor), and of course, Mr. Abualy.

The Fundamentals of Good AV Room Design

Architects and designers of AV spaces focus on the aesthetics and optimization of room usage and space. At Captus Systems, we focus on the principles of AV project optimization, with the technical aspects of our clients’ needs in the forefront. Below are some fundamental best practices that we at Captus Systems always adhere to, in order to ensure the success of our clients’ AV projects: The Placement of Screens – Big & Small A positive AV experience is driven by the visuals of the room – and that includes the placement and size of the screen(s). When a screen is too small or too high on a wall, its effectiveness is lost because screens are obviously the focal point of any AV-enabled room. Products from company’s like Planar LED Displays can be set-up in either single-screen or video wall applications, which can then be used in conjunction with Peerless-AV or Chief mounts - and tools such as Chief PAC 525-AV boxes - to create world-class, impressive visual displays. When video screen placement is done correctly, the audience can’t help but be immersed in the experience. This is true for large or small rooms. More specifically - for a large room display, products like RP Visual’s Custom Mounts can be utilized. These types of mounts make it easy to move screens into their proper position, which ultimately makes the viewing experience a more comfortable one for the audience. Modern Tools Optimize the AV Experience Cloud-based video conferencing is a huge component of today’s AV business, so designing rooms that are able to connect easily to Cloud-based applications is essential to the modern meeting space. For optimum functionality, it’s best to use the most updated technology - like Cisco Webex - to deliver video conferencing between users across the globe. Products from Polycom, Starleaf, Cisco, and Zoom also offer great flexibility - and when the right tools from these manufacturers are chosen, it makes for the very best AV results. Audio is of Vital Importance Because Cloud-based video conferencing is integral to today’s AV industry, it is imperative to not only get the video part of the equation right - but the audio quality has to be outstanding as well. The audio component cannot be overlooked, so it is of vital importance that the right DSP technology is in place for the best possible sound outcome. Sound technology from BiAmp, QSC, or Clearone are all equally good choices when planning for optimum audio solutions for AV-enabled conference rooms. When the very best audio tools are used, they are sure to deliver crisp and crystal-clear audio in concert with vibrant and vivid visuals – and that makes for a winning combination every time! We at Captus Systems know that all of these points may seem obvious to industry insiders, but sadly, that’s not always the case. We take great pride in making sure that the AV solutions we design for our clients consistently hit on all of these fundamental best practices – which are essential to making every Captus Systems project a great success.

Critical Collaboration Trends

Today’s modern workplace has changed dramatically from the days of 9-5, when button-down shirts and ties were the norm, and your manager’s office was just steps away from your desk. Today’s workplace is more casual and flexible, and the work/life balance is an important part of the equation. These days, the workforce is made up of mix of freelancers, contract workers, stay-at-home parents, and full-time staff – many of whom are working remotely. Millennials are willing to forego the traditional security and benefits of a full-time job for more freelance opportunities, allowing for complete control over their schedules. According to Forbes Magazine, (from January 26, 2016), freelancers will make up 50% of the workforce by the year 2020. As a result of the changing workforce dynamic, companies have no choice but to collaborate on a higher, more innovative and intuitive level, in order to compete in the global economy. Collaboration Technology is making that possible. Innovative business collaboration techniques can vastly improve your company’s productivity, as was recently sited by the global management and consultant company – McKinsey. They worked with a multinational software company, whose challenge was to collaborate effectively with team members in different time zones and continents. A key finding in this particular case was that the group had too few tools to competently engage in this type of knowledge-sharing. This problem was resolved after implementing innovative business collaboration tools and processes, which allowed the company to eliminate up to 30 percent of wasted time. Technology companies are continuing to develop cutting-edge Collaboration Tools to meet the demanding needs of today’s business environment. Cisco’s WebEx Teams (formerly Cisco Spark) can make working remotely more intuitive with easy-to-use collaboration tools. It unifies voice, video, data, and mobile - allowing people to work from virtually anywhere. Meetings can be conducted with teammates, partners, vendors, and customers - in various locations via video conferencing, real time messaging, and file-sharing. Companies may require cross-functional collaboration where disparate groups need to come together in order to react to real-time information, requiring a command/control center environment. To that end, system integration technology can be designed, which may include conference rooms linked to a primary LED display or video wall, featuring Planar screens and Peerless-AV or RP Visuals’ custom mounts. This type of technology promotes integration, collaboration, and streamlined communication between departments and groups. Cloud video conferencing is one of the fastest-growing areas in collaboration and unified communication, and comes in several configurations. Meeting-room video conferencing, AV enabled rooms, desktop conferencing, and mobile connectivity are primary examples. Hallmarks of a well-engineered audio video conference room – such as no visible wires, perfect camera angles, and flawless audio – are key, so that all of the meeting participants appear to have a seat at the same table. With these elements correctly in place, every person on the call can be heard with crystal clarity. To further the ease of operation - calls can even be scheduled to connect based on a calendar invitation. Whether implementing a standard video codec, (using cisco, Polycom, LifeSize), or a PC-based solution, (using Skype for Business “S4B” – soon to be Microsoft Teams, Zoom, Vidyo), or just calling-in to an audio bridge – every user experience should be the same. Global manufacturer, StarLeaf, provides an affordable, easy-to-use, and reliable video and voice communication system. Its messaging, video conferencing, and video calling services allow organizations to communicate and collaborate easily, seamlessly, and with zero interoperability issues. StarLeaf’s business collaboration products enable people to message, meet, and call anyone on any device - at any time. For example, their Group Telepresence 3351 – Enterprise Room System, is specifically designed to facilitate rich, immersive, and engaging meetings in larger conference rooms and auditoriums. Designed for professional AV integration, this system supports multiple screens, microphones, and cameras, so that your attendees can experience every single detail - just as if they were literally in the room. There are an infinite number of options available. Fill-out a request now, for a free quote to determine your Collaboration Technology needs.

Audio, Lighting, HD Video, and AV Control Systems Design

Audio, Lighting, HD Video, and AV Control Systems Design A common characteristic of the modern economy is disruption. Disruption is defined as “the taking of an established industry with its inherent advantages, and breaking-down barriers for the masses.” While we’ve all seen the effects of this when we hail a ride from Uber or make a purchase from Amazon, it is also very true in the way which technology has been made available for all organizations. Small, Medium, Large, and Enterprise organizations now have many of the same tools available for them to both compete with, and grow their businesses. Many of these commercial tools - like their consumer counterparts - invite collaboration, promote ease of use, and typically use audio and video systems to increase their adoption. Networking companies like Cisco use WebEx Team and compete with Zoom and StarLeaf for the best of breed cloud performance. Audio Visual equipment from industries leaders like BiAmp and Shure have turned the corner to integrate Audio and the Network, using standards like DANTE (Digital Audio Network Through Ethernet), in order to provide for the next generation of connected devices. This new age of technology exponentially expands the performance and reduces cost for those experts on both audio and networking. While complexity seemingly may grow when you scale-up your solutions, audio and visual systems no longer need to be difficult to manage. Ease of use is now the primary objective and requirement. Creating Scalable Solutions Let’s say you’re a small startup that’s looking to grow and improve your office in preparation for client visits: One of the first things you’ll need is a meeting or conference room where you can present your latest projects to your investors and clients. Doing so often requires a very capable LCD projector from a reputable company like Christie Digital. However, the products they offer can vary in both price and use, which is why it is so important to create scalable solutions. As you add more AV devices to your business - be they audio interfaces in a studio, touchscreens for classrooms, or even a building-wide PA system - Captus Systems can help you design and build the perfect solution for your needs. What’s even more important than simply using the system, is the ability to CONTROL IT. That’s where companies like Extron come-in handy with their audio and visual control interfaces, switches, and other user-friendly systems. Enterprise Presentation Rooms Our specialties are in both conference and presentation rooms. Not only can we help you design a smart and comfortable room in which to hold your meetings, but we can also provide you with the correct AV control systems and technologies in order to make it practical as well. We know the importance of making that good first impression to your clients, because you don’t get many opportunities to do so in the world of business. We work together with industry leaders such as Planar Systems, Extron, and QSC in order to deliver high-quality digital AV control system solutions. From all-in-one tabletop solutions such as the Crestron Mercury, to systems like the Crestron NVX that can manage and distribute digital AV and control signals across your entire office - we’ve got scalable solutions to meet your exact needs no, matter how large or small your operation is. We specialize in offering high-end solutions for architects and designers, facility managers, general contractors, and also IT and media services managers. We serve several different types of industries, including those in the corporate, legal, financial, healthcare-related, and educational fields. With all that said - whether you’re in need of a service to help you to renovate existing lecture halls at your college or university, to create a brand-new AV control system to assist patients in your healthcare facility, or you’d like to design a luxury conference room to impress your clients - we’ve got the perfect solution for you!

Inspire your audience with a sophisticated, top-notch technology enabled Auditorium with Multimedia Presentations

The Modern Auditorium Inspire your audience with a sophisticated, state of the art technology enabled Auditorium that’s capable of delivering any Multimedia Presentation with power and ease. Capturing the attention of people in an auditorium has never been easy. By definition the auditorium is a large space where the presenter and the audience are separated, by design. Challenge 1: draw everyone's attention to the front of the house. Often you have only one person taking control and commanding the attention of the entire room. Other events are driven by several presenters; sometimes from a dais. Whether your auditorium is in an educational institution or a corporate facility, the goal is to get people to listen and participate. Often this has as much to do with the technology and tools, as the content and delivery. Auditorium technology has come a long way in recent years, and sophisticated technology can do a lot to transform your space and events. The modern presentation is multimedia by definition and incorporates lots of different techniques for a captivating experience. The Modern Multimedia Experience With an auditorium enabled with the latest technology, you can conduct more than just an effective event for your audience; now your event will be memorable. The very least that many people will expect from a presentation today is a PowerPoint slideshow projected on a large screen, perhaps with the help of an interactive board. But with a fully equipped auditorium, the event and presentation will be transformed in ways that was just dreamt about a few years ago and no longer requires deep pockets. Easily bring the multitude of visual content, together with crystal clear audio to captivate and engage the audience. With conferencing capabilities, quality has never been better, nor has the ability ever been easier, to conduct a state-of-the-art interactive presentation, remotely, from anywhere in the world. So whether you're trying to engage donors, get students to pay more attention, or simply to inspire the audience, now the tools are readily available and cost effective. Interactive Experience People don’t want to just sit and be lectured to. Just watching a presentation can be a daunting task in some organizations. The modern experience wants to bring people in. Engagement is becoming more of a priority every day. The connected, modern auditorium enables people to contribute from their seats, adding to the experience of all attendees. Lecturers, presenters and now anyone else can be a presenter and broadcast their information (or opinion) to the wider audience. BYOD / Personal devices, such as phones (IOS, Android) laptops and tablets can all be managed to become part of the event. Microphone technology is now an IP network discipline; allowing for greater flexibility, and clarity with fewer touch points. Dante Audio (digital audio through ethernet) is a combination of hardware and software protocols has changed the game for those professionals trained to deploy its benefits. Participants are able to make contributions, speak up and join in with conversations (sometimes from apps on their own devises) that are heard in the room and on the far-side. Audience engagement available to everyone with ease. Unshackle your auditorium from the confines of the 19th and 20th century’s footprint into a shared collaborative space; where the format, presenters and content is as varied as the topics. Assisted Listening - Audio Induction Loop System - ADA Mandated People with a hearing disability are increasingly using hearing aides capable of a T-coil (Telecoil) setting. Spaces available to the public are required by the Americans with Disability Act (ADA) to have access to the audio systems within the public space. While many spaces make assisted listening headsets available by request, the modern experience allows the user to be in control. Spaces designed and engineered, early with induction loop systems, taking into account the physical infrastructure (walls, steel beams, reinforced concrete, wireless interference etc.) can include everyone in the space without unsolicited attention or stigma sometimes associated with having to ask for assistance. Control - Video, Light, Sound & Experience Control is King. Ease of use is paramount. Control is available to every aspect of the technological experience: Video and audio systems, lighting, emergency systems, HVAC, window treatments, acoustical wall coverings, occupancy sensors, all of it. While the control of all of the assets may feel like you’ve been bestowed with power of the wizard behind the curtain, the purpose is to your remove distractions, focus attention, and enable engagement. Captivate, inspire and make it memorable more easily with preset control scripts that perform dozens of commands with a single button push, triggered from an occupancy sensor or by schedule. Captus Systems provides electronic window treatments and shading control which is especially important in a room with an abundance of natural light. Depending on the final architectural layout, Sound masking can be added. Sound masking allows the people in rooms adjacent to an auditorium (or loud space) to focus on the task at hand. Connected Spaces Making your auditorium as connected as possible allows your audience to interact with you and each other. It also ensures that they have access to essential information that they might require while attending a lecture, lesson, talk or presentation. Ensuring that IT and AV elements are smoothly connected is essential for a modern technological auditorium. The tools are available, the technology is sophisticated and scalable and Captus Systems Design and Engineering Team are prepared to design the best solution for you and your auditorium within your budget confines. Captus Systems designs ensures that the technology will work well and the experience will exceed expectation for years to come. Captus Systems brings you technology from Cisco, Crestron, Christie Digital, Planar, Extron, BiAmp, and QSC.
