From the Technology Committee: Monitor Plans for Meeting Rooms and Plans for a Walk-In Tech Clinic

News from today’s Technology Committee Meeting

Firstly, in response to CEO Amy Harrison’s request for design input, we have established a group to analyze the needs and potential of putting TVs that can take computer inputs into the meeting rooms.  We understand that, as this Committee had suggested, money has been put aside in the just starting budget year.  We will try to come up with recommendations that are easy to use, flexible, and robust.  We see this as making it possible to show anything from laptops, as well at other sources.  There has been talk of including Skype video capacity, perhaps making possible joint meetings with other Kendal resident association groups.  Bessie Carrington is to convene the group.  Do please contact her with ideas or if you are interested in joining the group.

Secondly, we hope in a couple of weeks to launch an experimental “Tech Clinic.” The idea is that few of us self-announced “experts” will hang out in the Ivy room for an hour or so, and see if we can help folks who may have problems and issues.  We will try to help with laptops (all types), and smart phones.  No need to book, and the service is guaranteed to be worth at least what you pay for it (!).  If you would be willing to be an expert, please contact Bessie.  Watch this space for announcements.

  1. Having the big screen monitors in the rooms will be a terrific step forward. As we get crowded in the auditorium it will be important to make sure we can broadcast video and sound to these rooms from the auditorium to handle overflow when the auditorium is full. With the ceilings open for the A/C work it is the perfect time to think ahead and put video cables in place.
