The Challenge

When NCJUA’s remote audience increased from two to ten, and the in-person board member needs adjusted around the “U”-shape setup, Joanna and her team knew adapting their technical support would be crucial to deliver a seamless production experience. 

A seasoned technician, Joanna understood the customer’s needs, from the distance of the in-room split screens and different views, including a robotic camera that caused switching complexities and readability issues, to elevated internet requirements and the right in-person table-top microphones to handle private side-bar conversations during live presentations.

The Solution

Passionate about solving challenges, Joanna anticipated needs the customer hadn’t originally expressed! She and her team recommended customed solutions to set NCJUA’s event up for success:  

  • In room, they included everything from a 55-inch confidence monitor and versatile push-to-talk microphones for the adjusted head count to hard-wired internet for secured speed and stability 
  • For the dual-audiences and seamless board meeting, Joanna partnered with NCJUA’s IT Coordinator to build confidence and trust as she stepped in to cue up and advance content for a dynamic, switching production experience.
