Tukans – your technical audio visual partner.
UC & VC, or unified collaboration and video conferencing, is the art of communicating remotely using audio visual equipment. It allows individuals to communicate efficiently and effectively, without needing to be in the same place.
It comes in many different forms, from huddle rooms, meeting spaces and boardrooms to your home office or your desk at work. They key to making UC & VC work is professional, high-quality A/V equipment.
Here at Tukans, we have decades of experience working with integrators, consultants and end users on their unified collaboration & video conferencing projects.
Streaming enables businesses and public sectors to communicate with a large number of people remotely over popular platforms like YouTube, Facebook and Panopto, as well as their own personal sites.
University seminars, corporate training sessions, church services and conferences are all applications that are reaping the benefits of streaming. It allows them to reach overseas and home-working students, employees across numerous branches, people unable to attend services and much more.
The streaming market is one which has grown considerably in recent years and has become a key business area at Tukans.
Through simple yet powerful digital signage solutions, organisations can bring their story to life with creative and dynamic content. Today, digital signage is visible everywhere you go. Whether it’s a menu at a local cafe, an advertisement in a shop window, a welcome message in an office reception, or wayfinding on an arena totem.
Different environments utilise digital signage in different ways, however they are all equally effective. Universities and higher education use it to communicate with staff and students, corporations welcome clients and speak with their employees, retail advertises its products and promotes offers.
The projects we work on alongside our customers come in all shapes and sizes and cover a multitude of applications – each with its own set of aims, objectives and challenges. Case Studies give an insight into how integrators have deployed products and solutions from Tukans in the real world.
While Tukans offers a vast array of products and solutions, case studies also offer the opportunity to show case the art of integration and for others to see some of the amazing projects our customers complete for their clients. Sometimes even resulting in innovative new ways to use and deploy the products and technologies we distribute.
