What can you expect from the hardware you receive as part of your Vizual Shield experience?

The hardware is an essential component of the Vizual Shield managed services program. Business owners are well aware of how expensive audio-visual hardware can be. As part of this unique AV as a Service (AVaaS), you will receive the latest, state-of-the-art equipment included in your solution bundle. Our experienced Vizual Symphony team is continually learning everything we can about the best products on the market. We are proud to be AV hardware experts and work hard to utilize that expertise to benefit your organization.

The type of hardware you will need depends greatly on your industry and your objectives. We know there are no one-sized-fits all hardware bundles for companies and organizations, which is why the VS consultancy is so vital to the process. We will work with you closely to assess your facility and your goals to identify the perfect hardware to meet your organizational needs.

Below are the five primary clients we serve and how the right hardware bundles from VS enhance what they do:

Corporate

Corporate hardware needs tend to revolve around conference rooms, video conferencing, and presentations. They need the hardware to look just as great as it functions, so we focus on providing sleek, high-tech hardware that will meet the specific goals of the company.

These clients also want the hardware to be very user-friendly. They don’t want to waste time trying to figure out where cords go or how to get something to work. They simply want to get down to business and have everything run like a well-oiled machine—as it should!

At Vizual Symphony, we connect clients with audio-visual solutions that will meet all of these needs. We are in the business of making our corporate clients’ lives easier and their companies more productive.

Education

Educational institutions require a higher level of technology for their classrooms. With each and every classroom application, we adhere to our tagline: “ideas in focus.” Our educational clients include high schools, colleges, and universities that understand their students deserve the best of the best in AV to optimize learning.
