To collaborate effectively in today’s hybrid business climate, audio technology must address the real problems faced every day by end users, IT professionals, and AV integrators. Innovations in audio quality are proving essential for conducting meetings by enhancing the meeting experience for both remote and face-to-face participants.
Even before the recent shift to virtual meetings, a 2019 survey conducted by Shure with Illuminas found that two-thirds of business professionals believed their company lacked proper conferencing technology. A third of company meetings have technical issues and users often encounter difficulties when working with conferencing technology. But better audio doesn’t have to be complicated.

Shure Stem Implementation
One implementation of the Stem Ecosystem can be found at Azusa Pacific University in Southern California. To make a rapid transition to online learning, the university selected Stem Ecosystem products to equip 217 classrooms across 7 campus locations with video conferencing, just in time for the Fall 2020 semester. These devices provide students with the best online learning experience while at the same time remaining compliant. budget and allow their team to do the installation themselves.
“With a team of two full-time employees, six students working part-time, and four IT department employees working part-time, we needed a solution that we could install ourselves without the need for CTS certification or formal installation engineering training,” said Jonathan Lord, Classroom and Events Technology Manager at Azusa Pacific University. “Stem Wall and Table really surprised everyone who had used it. Obviously, the Stem Wall and Table has a great look, besides, this product fits almost any space and is a good price.”
