Why Dallas Businesses Are Switching to AV as a Service

The Simpler Approach to Business Software & Hardware

Have you heard of AV as a Service? Also referred to as AVaaS, it’s a subscription plan that provides technology to your business for a monthly fee. So, whether you need conferencing displays, smart systems, digital signage, or touchscreens, it’s all part of the plan and can be swapped and traded out at any time. AVaaS also includes the installation, management, and technical support services with ongoing training for your team.

Traditionally, businesses would purchase all their hardware upfront. But as a new alternative, AVaaS covers all your needs within a monthly subscription. If you ever decide you don’t need equipment anymore, we’ll take it away and replace it with new hardware.

Some business owners ask us: why wouldn’t I want to own my technology? There are many reasons businesses in Dallas, TX, are switching to AVaaS and forgoing hardware ownership. You may find your company could benefit, too!

Want to learn more? Contact Texadia Systems for a no-obligation consultation about AVaaS. And continue reading to see why it’s worth making the switch to AVaaS!

The Benefits of Hiring a Professional for Cabling Installations

20220407-202631TEXSYS_FebruaryBlog6_CablingInstallation_PlanoTX-

For Everything from Networking to Security Systems, Here’s How Structured Cabling Makes a Difference

Is everything wireless today? We see wireless printers and wireless conferencing systems more than ever in office. In our personal lives, many of us own wireless headphones, wireless speakers, and even wireless phone chargers. But just because some technology can be accessed wirelessly, doesn’t mean that we still don’t depend on hardwired networks. After all, you can’t enjoy Wi-Fi without a router wired to the internet.

Cabling is an essential infrastructure for any business. Whether wiring supports a surveillance system, internet network, a POS system, or commercial automation, you need wiring to complete these operations.

Even so, many businesses still skimp on properly cabling these systems – until they run into a major problem. A professional cabling installation is crucial to keep your operations running smoothly.

As a commercial technology integrator, Texadia Systems understands the importance of installing all-encompassing cabling infrastructure for Plano, TX businesses.

Tabletop vs. Ceiling Microphones: The Best Solution for Conference Room AV

20220407-202224TEXSYS_FebruaryBlog4_ConferenceRoomAV_DallasTX-

Want to Make Your Conference Calls Sound Better? Choose the Right Microphone for Your Business

Is your business struggling to navigate the “new normal” of hybrid workplaces? You’re not alone. Modern meetings present new pain points when half the staff is in person, and the other half is working from home. Many business owners are left wondering: how do we handle meetings when only half the people are here?  

Some companies require everyone to call in from their computer, even if they’re in the office. But some find this method awkward and counterproductive. After all, why are we in the office if we’re not all meeting together?

Other businesses are taking a different approach. In-person staff meets over the same webcam at the conference table, and as a group, they join a video call. With high-quality conference room AV, the entire group can be seen and heard by a wide-angle camera and HD microphone.

But if you’re upgrading your conference room, that leaves you a choice. Should you use a tabletop or ceiling microphone? Both have their advantages, but which offers the best audio quality and experience?

Read on to discover the pros and cons of ceiling and table microphones. And to find conference room AV in the Dallas, TX area, learn more from Texadia Systems.

20220211-160600TEXSYS_FebruaryBlog3_LightingControl_UniversityParkTX-

Sleep Better & Live Well with Help from Tunable Lighting  

Do you wake up feeling groggy each morning, hitting the snooze button until you’re running late? Do you rely on several cups of coffee to get through the day? And by nightfall, do you lie in bed with racing thoughts, unable to sleep?

If that sounds like your daily experience, your circadian rhythm may be out of sync. The circadian rhythm is the internal clock that tells our bodies when to feel alert, sleepy, and even hungry. Our circadian rhythms are self-regulated but are largely influenced by the sun.

In this article, we’ll share how circadian lighting works, why it’s important, and how it will enhance your University Park, TX home. And if you’re interested in lighting control, contact Texadia Systems to get started on a new home system.
