AVer Europe, a leading manufacturer of video conferencing solutions, is enabling small businesses to survive and thrive during lockdown. Surrey-based personal training company Marek’s Fitness has taken to Zoom and is utilising the premium quality and wide angle capability of AVer Europe’s CAM 340+ camera to provide training and group classes, which has enabled the company to maintain and grow its client base internationally.
Marek’s Fitness made all personal and group training classes virtual a few days before lockdown, the priority being the health and wellbeing of clients. The firm decided to use Zoom but it quickly became apparent that a laptop camera or a typical USB web camera was insufficient, both for sound and vision. Feedback from clients was that the video quality wasn't good enough and the trainer would need to keep repositioning the laptop and camera for different exercises. For the business to survive, it needed a high-quality camera with better audio.
Marek’s Fitness purchased an AVer CAM340+ huddle room conference camera to use for all classes. The team did not mention the new camera to clients but they all commented immediately that the picture quality was far better and the sound was clearer, with little background noise. The wide-angle camera enables the trainers to showcase a range of movements and activities on the camera without disruption.
The plug-and-play AVer CAM340+ offers a professional performance quality and a deep focus. With an ultra-wide 120° field of view, the camera is perfect for groups of individuals joining a call together or showcasing activities or content in a larger space.
Founder Marek Ocelka comments: “We loved the fact the AVer CAM340+ is plug and play. It is so easy and simple to set up, which is great for non-technical people such as ourselves. The AVer CAM340+ has really helped us transition to our virtual offering, almost seamlessly. We are even able to offer more personal training sessions and group training classes. Due to lockdown more people are aware that they need to keep moving and we are actually busier than before! I believe that having a good quality picture video stream certainly helps this.
“We have a client retention rate of 99.5% which is incredible, and consider ourselves extremely fortunate. We have even taken on more clients. Previously we were restricted by geographical location but now we have clients from further afield including, Devon, Wales and Slovakia. There are also talks of starting up a class for a group in Dubai. I believe having such a great camera, the AVer CAM340+, has helped us achieve this.”
Rene Buhay, AVer Europe Vice President of Sales & Marketing, comments: “AVer Europe is delighted to be able to support small businesses like Marek’s Fitness adjust to the new reality of home working by enhancing their video conferencing experience. In addition to CAM340+, AVER offers multiple cameras for video conferencing solutions from sole business to enterprise.“
