How Do Hybrid Workers Affect Collaboration Designs?

Let’s face it, hybrid work and learning are here to stay. However, the shift to hybrid has put a strain on AV and IT teams; they now must meet new and growing needs in collaboration spaces of all sizes. Here comes a new challenge: Each space requires different solutions and infrastructure to accommodate remote participants, and the answer is not a one-size-fits-all solution.

Smaller rooms can accommodate plug-and-play tools, but larger collaboration rooms have historically required complex audio and video solutions. Designers and AV professionals must account for camera views, microphone pickup, display size, acoustics and more when building these large collaboration spaces. All of this creates a multicomponent, complex solution to meet the needs of remote and hybrid workers. With that in mind, we wanted to ask a few questions to understand how the hybrid shift affects the market and AV collaboration designs.
