As AVI-SPL is a  partner with Tannoy, I headed over to its booth at InfoComm earlier this month to learn about its newest audio products. The appeal of its sister company Lab.gruppen’s just-launched LUCIA (Localized Utility Compact Intelligent Amplification) is that it takes a decentralized approach to distributing audio. LUCIA provides high-quality audio designed for  small lecture spaces, classrooms, boardrooms, and bars and restaurants. Some of its features:

  • 4×4 mix matrix
  • 2 × 60 W (LUCIA 120/2) or 2 × 120 W (LUCIA 240/2) into 8, 4 or 2 ohms
  • Fail-safe operation

AVI-SPL has the expertise to bring your audio project to light.  To learn more, or ask questions, speak with an AVI-SPL representative at 866-559-8197 or fill out our contact form.

AVI-SPL and Bosch Showcase Campus Security Solution

At InfoComm 2013, the AVI-SPL booth featured Bosch Praesideo,  a digital public address and emergency voice evacuation system that addresses the need for improved security in a variety of environments, including K-12 and higher education.

In addition to demonstrating Praesideo, AVI-SPL emphasizes the need to be prepared before, during a natural disaster or unexpected event. Using products from partners like Bosch, AVI-SPL can create physical security solutions that share messages through different channels, including text message, digital signage, and audio announcement.

Meet the AVI-SPL Medical Group

Operating roomLast week, I let you know that AVI-SPL’s medical team won two of 37 awards handed out by Commercial Integrator magazine at InfoComm 2013. Those wins are a validation of the effort the group has put into creating solutions that improve the delivery of care in healthcare facilities.

What makes AVI-SPL Medical so special among other solutions providers? Expertise and dedication are a couple of the reasons that spring to mind. For over a decade, the team has specialized  in audio and video  solutions for:

  • Integrated operating rooms
  • Intraoperative MRI surgical suites
  • Specialized procedure rooms
  • Interactive medical collaboration

AVI-SPL Medical helps remove silos that separate surgical services, IT departments, and telehealth outreach programs. With the ongoing analog-to-digital conversion taking place in forward thinking hospitals, we’re helping hospitals embrace the efficiency of IT/AV convergence, so that healthcare providers can benefit from networked audio and video in places like the OR.

In future posts, I’ll  look at how the medical group is addressing the needs of different healthcare constituencies, including hospitals, practitioners and IT.

Go to the AVI-SPL Healthcare page and take a look at the audio visual solutions that improve clinical care and information sharing.
