Is Hidden Technology a Good Fit for Your Business?

Explore the Key Reasons to Hide Your Tech

We’ve explored the advantages of hidden technology for homes a lot in the past, but there’s no reason why you have to restrict this innovative tech to just your living room or bedroom. More and more often lately, business owners throughout Houston, Texas are choosing hidden technology solutions for audio/video installations.

It’s not a perfect fit for every application, but it could be right for your commercial space. Below, we break down the top two signs that you should consider hidden tech.

1: Aesthetic is an Important Aspect of Your Business

When you want to make a positive impression to clients and shareholders, the overall aesthetic of the space can affect a lot. Imagine walking into a boardroom and viewing a sleek, clean space. Perhaps the focal point is on a key piece of artwork or a view of downtown Houston through floor-to-ceiling glass windows. 

Now imagine that same room, but the focus of the space is instead on clunky equipment and cluttered cables. It doesn’t have the same effect, does it?

Hidden technology allows you to keep the minimalist aesthetic without losing any functionality. 

It can also add to that impressive ambiance by automatically transforming the room before your eyes, revealing silently and smoothly at the press of a button or voice command.

2: Space is Limited or Multi-purpose

For buildings that you’re not constructing from the ground up, it’s common to end up with areas that don’t have the ideal layout. Perhaps there’s not a good place for a teleconferencing system to live permanently or the room is too small for the equipment needed in the space. In these areas, it’s much easier for the technology to dominate – unless it’s out of sight until it’s needed.

Audio/video technology isn’t always the right fit for a room all the time. Multi-purpose spaces often struggle with an identity crisis – are they meeting areas? Waiting rooms? Training rooms? 

With hidden technology, you can have a primary and secondary purpose for each space. In a moment, the room can transition from one purpose to the next, simply by revealing the audio/video installation. 

Huddle rooms could have projector and screen hidden in the ceiling, for example, so that if a quick meeting with employees turns into a longer meeting, data can be easily displayed. 

Hidden or visible, when it comes to commercial audio/video installations, we’ve done it all. If you’re interested in more information about our AV upgrade or first-time installation services, reach out to us here or give us a call at (281) 907-9620.
