Matt was looking to outfit two of his conference rooms with video conferencing so his users could conduct Zoom meetings. They had an existing, “conferencing system that lacked intelligibility, volume, and clarity to the point where we were not able to communicate effectively,” said Johnson. “We also had room configuration issues in that we did not have a conduit in the floor so we also wanted a clean looking room.”

Specific challenges included:

  • Complex configuration issues
  • Poor audio quality
  • Hiring a third party for installation


Matt Johnson, IT Manager at Sims Lohman, needed an audio solution that could be easily integrated into multiple conference room for high quality Zoom meetings. 

When Matt was looking around for a solution he came across Stem Audio and knew he had found exactly what he was looking for. He was able to guide his team in other office locations on how to install Stem devices and get them up and running all on their own.



Matt was able to install all audio components on his own and in no time at all. His rooms have great audio coverage from anywhere in the room and the quality of their meetings are better than ever. “Stem Audio has been excellent. Both the quality of the product and the quality of the people supporting the product! Stem Audio allows us to meet virtually with high-quality intelligible speech without the need for custom installers and certified dealers.”
