  1. Wireless collaboration solutions

    Technology is an integral part of our daily lives, whether it's at home or at work, entertaining us, keeping us connected and informed, helping us to communicate and complete tasks. But technology can also be frustrating sometimes: devices not pairing or connecting to the wireless network, cables in a tangled mess, difficulties with sharing content and having to swap cables between colleagues etc. Nobody likes wasting half of a meeting or sales presentation trying to get the tech that is supposed to help us to simply work.

    In home entertainment there is little more impressive than a large image that is sharp, vibrant and with high contrast.

    While OLED televisions lead the way in terms of dark blacks and vibrant colours, it is not always easy to achieve a truly large image, either because of the space available – not everyone has a lounge large enough for an 85" diagonal TV - or simply the cost.

  4. How to protect employees and customers as the country opens to a new normal?

    The government have reviewed social distancing rules and reduced the 2m-rule to 1m allowing more schools, businesses and the hospitality industry to consider re-opening as soon as possible.
    As some schools have started to welcome more pupils and businesses see customers and staff back, the safety of everyone is a main concern.

    How do we limit the risks of spreading viruses and put adequate measures in place to protect employees, visitors and pupils?

    Along with self-isolating if you have symptoms and practicing good respiratory hygiene, to protect yourself and others the World Health Organisation (WHO) recommend:

    • regular hand cleaning with alcohol-based hand rub or water and soap
