Webinar Recording: Audio Basics for Meetings and Conferences

AV is about adaptation and being able to support legacy meeting and conferencing equipment while designing systems for the ever- changing workplace environment. During this webinar, learn how to ensure good sound quality in typical business situations by bridging the gap between your own technical background and the world of professional audio. Gino Sigismondi, Shure’s Associate Director, Technical Support and Training, covers:

  • Basic components of a sound system, key audio concepts, and the differences between digital and analog audio.
  • How room acoustics and noise affect the intelligibility of the audio, what feedback is and what causes it.
  • Basics of microphones – how they work, the use and placement for different microphone types and the pros and cons of selecting and using either wired or wireless microphones.
  • How different-sized rooms relate to the sound system that would be selected and how to distinguish between a discussion and conference system.

AVI-SPL Makes SCN’s List of Installs of the Year

Systems Contractor News highlights its “Installs of the Year” in its November 2018 issue, and AVI-SPL’s work is among them. AVI-SPL recently integrated AV-over-IP systems that help the U.S. Air Force monitor and control its Test and Training range at Eglin Air Force Base.

Personnel at the 96th Range Control Squadron at Eglin AFB select visuals from test-range cameras and display those feeds to a control-room video wall. Operators select the feeds they want to display and group them together for intelligent, live viewing. Using this information, they track and control aircraft and weapons that are in flight.

RGB Spectrum‘s Zio codecs are at the core of this installation. Twenty-four Zio units decode and display over 150 live visuals from the field. RGB Spectrum has an excellent overview of this project.

AVI-SPL engineers and technicians design, test, and install systems that distribute audio and video over any size network.

Five Best Practices for Adopting UC and Video

Unified communications and video collaboration tools improve the user experience when they align with business goals AND are used throughout an organization.
