6 Industries That Should Be Using Video & A/V Technology

If there is one thing we have learned during our 20+ years as an audio visual integrator, it’s that there is a use case for A/V and visual collaboration solutions in virtually any industry. Whether you work for a local manufacturing company, the federal government or a global media conglomerate, you need spaces to collaborate and share ideas – and the best technology to do so. We’ve seen how having productive, video-centric meeting spaces and the latest A/V technology in place benefits a multitude of industries, but today we’re highlighting six.


Some of our greatest client success stories come from our manufacturer clients, and for one simple reason – most require modern A/V technology to successfully run their operations and collaborate around the world. Manufacturing companies need spaces to collaborate with local and remote teams on everything from production initiatives to supply chain management. Whether these spaces include training facilities or conference rooms, having up-to-date audio visual systems in place drastically increases the efficiency and effectiveness of their meetings and processes.


In the media industry, meeting strict deadlines and collaborating with peers, sources and advertisers is critical to effective reporting and business success. Daily editorial and staff meetings are commonplace, and teams may be dispersed across the world. Video conferencing and A/V rooms quickly connect teams face-to-face to guarantee timely meetings and reporting. AGT helps one of the largest media companies in the world with audio visual design, integration and maintenance services – we’ve seen firsthand how modern technology and updated meeting spaces help enhance their workflows and communication.


Law firms and legal entities can use video conferencing and audio visual solutions to conduct onsite and remote client meetings, depositions and negotiations. In addition, litigation often requires interviews where the ability to capture and record verbal and non-verbal cues is paramount. In the midst of these important meetings, the quality and functionality of A/V systems is a top priority – high-tech systems ensure these moments are captured without technology glitches. Having up-to-date equipment and processes in place ensures meetings are secure, efficient and effective.


Hospitals, physician offices and research centers rely on support from multiple professionals and facilities that are not always local, making communication and the ability to focus on mission critical tasks challenging. By adding simple visual collaboration solutions to a healthcare environment, providers significantly increase the quality of their care with seamless face-to-face communication. Current and future-ready A/V systems eliminate problems associated with dated communication technology, such as dropped video consultations or connection issues. Telemedicine is expected to reach new heights in 2016, so it’s important for healthcare providers to stay on top of the latest technology trends in an effort to provide the best care possible.


Government entities use video conferencing and audio visual solutions to improve response times, increase productivity, minimize distance barriers and decrease costly travel expenses. Government operations require secure collaboration solutions that yield productive environments where mission critical communication, distance learning programs and real-time surveillance technologies are top priorities.


Educational institutions can enrich learning environments and distance learning programs by implementing presentation and collaboration solutions, such as interactive displays and touchscreen technology. When collaborating in educational settings, it is important to have consistent and dependable A/V solutions to ensure the learning environment is effective and properly used. With high-quality A/V systems, dated faculty meeting spaces, auditoriums and classrooms get a facelift, resulting in future-proof collaboration spaces that foster communication and scholarship.

Of course, there is a use case for state-of-the-art A/V technology and video conferencing in any industry, but we’ve seen a lot of success with these verticals specifically lately. Want to add to our list? Tell us below!
