Video conferencing allows team members to collaborate across different time zones and locations, fostering connections and better team cohesion in remote teams. It also allows businesses to offer flexible working options to its staff, knowing that they have an avenue to keep communication channels open.
Businesses that have implemented remote working know its success is largely dependent on the reliability of the solutions in place.

Every organisation has different goals and achieves them in different ways. At PB Tech, we strive to provide bespoke solutions that meet your objectives simply, effectively, and within budget.
Our solutions experts will perform a consultation to understand how the video conferencing solution will be used, your existing IT infrastructure, and key deliverables. Timeframes, success measures, and budgets are agreed upon for the project scope.
Most businesses are either looking to upgrade conference set up to something more modern and compatible with Zoom or Microsoft Teams, but we also seek a deeper understanding of the most important features a customer is looking for. These can range from screen mirroring, BYOD support, VoIP integration, One Touch join, or scheduled meeting rooms.
A conference space can have all the latest and greatest features built-in, but ultimately the implementation will only be considered a success if all the end-users can use it easily – which is why they feature heavily in our solution design phase.
We aim to help customers partner the right hardware with the appropriate video conferencing software to complete a solution with our knowledge. Newline empowers end users with ease of collaboration, Poly’s microphone AI produces crystal clear audio, and Logitech enables users to plug-and-play with its versatile hardware configurations.
Installation is performed to assure the seamless integration of the agreed solution into the customer’s environment. This includes troubleshooting and perfecting the settings on the solution. The installation achieves aesthetics, functionality and ease of use. Ongoing support is always available, and we’re always happy to assist with follow-up support enquiries or help with scaling the solution to other areas of the customer’s environment.
PB Tech has delivered video conferencing solutions ranging from small video conference solutions to 6,000 unit deployments of TV systems for large government organisations.

With a meeting room at each location, PB Tech’s solutions experts proposed a portable video conferencing setup featuring a Newline interactive display and Logitech video conferencing system. We provided all three offices with the exact same setup to ensure the experience using their video conferencing solution was uniform across all three offices, speeding up adoption of the solution and simplifying the troubleshooting process.
