BYOD – Bring Your Own Device in Conference Technology

In conferencing and media technology, Bring Your Own Device is the term for using private mobile devices as both receivers and senders of content. Areas of application are: Trade shows, conferences, factory tours, museum tours, lecture halls, cinemas or theaters. Users download an app onto their private smartphone, with the help of which they are offered various opportunities for participation.

 

At PCS, we – As of summer 2017 – experience that BYOD systems have not (yet?) become established on the rental market. Especially for large conferences, it still makes sense to leave the logistics for receiving devices and their quality assurance to a specialized provider. Participants do not have the time to download apps and use them safely. In case of uncertainties, the consulting effort is very high, questions and excitement arise, which must be minimized in the run-up to a conference. Today, the smartphone is used primarily as a receiving device: Data on the conference is retrieved via a website or app, and replies are made via services such as Twitter.

 

The situation is different for media technology installations. In cinemas and lecture halls, demand is high – especially for barrier-free listening via WLAN. Users can get and install the apps in advance, with enough time. Use becomes practiced and increasingly easier through repeated visits.
