Webinar: Trends and Best Practices in Interactive Displays

Join us live, Wednesday, December 13, at 1 p.m. EST to learn what key buzzwords such as “collaboration,” “mirroring,” “touch” and “sharing” really mean in the modern touch-screen environment. Saundra Merollo of Sharp will  discuss applications, industry trends, and best practices.

In an age of IoT, interactive displays are prevalent nearly everywhere. They can be found in a classroom as teaching tools, just outside an elevator as an interactive directory, and even in hospital lobbies, where they can be used to check in patients. Touch displays surround us, and the need for these displays continues to grow.

AVI-SPL Tops the 2017 List of AV Systems Integrators

Near the end of each year, Systems Contractor News puts out a list of the top 50 AV systems integrators based on revenue. And each year, AVI-SPL is at the top of that list. That holds true in the 2017 edition of the SCN list, which AVI-SPL leads with $720 million. Acquisitions of Anderson AV and VideoLink contributed to that increase. Those acquisitions represent AVI-SPL’s commitment to expand its ability to serve companies around the world with the solutions they need to work smarter.

For companies that are seeking a solutions provider to guide them through the process of designing, implementing, and supporting the technology that improves the workplace experience, a number like $720 million may not be at the top of the list of criteria. But AVI-SPL sees that number as validation of its work and proof of trust from companies wanting to work with the most experienced integrator of AV and collaboration solutions. It represents the positive experience of those who are working with AVI-SPL for the first time, and those who have returned to AVI-SPL as their organizations evolve and needs change.

If your organization, regardless of the industry or market focus, is embarking on a project that involves better collaboration systems or advanced AV technology, connect with AVI-SPL at or 866-559-8197.
