Insights from the leadership at HB on technology and culture

Choosing Your AV Room Type

on August 15, 2019

Each collaboration room in an open floor plan office becomes integral for collaboration, meetings, and, sometimes, a quiet place to work. Here, we break down the different rooms at HB Communications in order to help you get ideas for your own space.

Small Rooms

Small rooms are great for one-on-one, individual, and small group work. In these small spaces, consistent user experience is crucial. From meetings, to content sharing, to video calls, these little rooms allow your employees to work in whatever way they need.

    and working sessions

Big Rooms

Large rooms are great for, obviously, large gatherings. But, as with the Hub, they can also be utilized as a social area and as smaller, breakout spaces. 

The Hub

  • A large, open area
  • Serves as an event venue, café,
    and social space
  • Immersive technology for event
    mode and environmental ambiance
  • Corporate communication

The Hub Collaboration Nook

  • A breakout space within the Hub
  • Perfect for ad hoc meetings, casual collaboration

Tech-Heavy Rooms 

Technology should help, not hinder your work. Rooms that are outfitted with more technology, than say, a huddle room, can help you to create content and power internal and external communications. 

Content Studio

  • For internal and external communication
  • Production-capable: marketing videos to company announcements and broadcasts

Customer Support and NOC (Network Operations Center)

  • Used to monitor customer environments
  • Home to HB View monitoring

Spaces need to be flexible and variable so that your employees can snag any kind of room to suit their work. Communication is key to any good organization and having different rooms available allows your employees to work together or individually to the best of their ability.
