The New Era in AV Control

Working with our experts affords me the opportunity to appreciate how talented they are, and how dedicated they are to their profession. In this case, I’m thinking of David Thorson, AVI-SPL’s senior manager of programming architecture.

David has spoken before about what companies should expect from an AV system and how they can protect their investment. In the paper “Simpler, Automated, IT-Friendly: The New Era in AV Control,” he explores advances in AV programming and what AVI-SPL is doing to make sure users of all experience levels can easily make use of a room’s AV and video.

Find out where AV programming is today and what that means for businesses that rely on audiovisual systems.

What to Expect From Today’s AV Control Systems

Audio-video control programming makes it possible to manage a variety of systems from a single touch panel. Simplicity remains the guiding principle as programmers expand their talents to accommodate BYOD, unified communications, and users with a range of technology comfort levels.

The following AVI-SPL tech paper explains how today’s AV control programmers are responding to the changing workplace by:

  • Helping IT staff manage AV equipment from a central location
  • Meeting the needs of network-centric environments
  • Empowering BYOD in the meeting space and beyond

This is a must-read for any organization that relies on AV and collaboration technology.
