In Japan, there is a prevalent concept of self-mockery towards the working population, which is corporate slave (しゃちく). The main characteristics of such groups include an inability to maintain a work-life balance, a feeling of anxiety at work, the possibility that they will find the conference room boring, and the facilities in the room challenging to operate. Well, one effective way to improve motivation is to transform your company’s boardroom, bringing new improvements to the boardroom through digital means, such as intelligent Networked Presentation Switcher NPS100, to increase employee productivity and give them a strong sense of self-achievement.

1. 4 Ways to upgrade your conference room

Suppose you do not upgrade your conference room on time. In that case, employees are likely to become tired of their work, avoid meetings, and bring negative changes to the nature of the meeting. After all, conferences aim to maximize efficiency through communication and cooperation. A chaotic conference room that cannot keep up with the times makes it challenging to promote the effectiveness of collaborative partnerships and bring substantial economic benefits to your company.

Here are four dimensions that you can consider when innovating your conference room.

1.1 Artificial intelligence technology

Today is an era where everyone can leverage the power of artificial intelligence to maximize their potential. Recently, OpenAI also announced its decision to offer all users ChatGPT with voice as a voice conversation feature for free. All users need to download the corresponding service application on their phone and quickly click on the earphone icon to facilitate voice conversations. For conference rooms, leveraging the power of artificial intelligence while ensuring data security and establishing information protection mechanisms can also elevate your conference experience to a new level.

Wireless presentation systems and Networked Presentation Switcher enable seamless content sharing among laptops, tablets, and smartphones without the need for physical connections, helping to enhance the convenience and flexibility of collaboration between meetings.
