From Video Conferencing to Digital Signage, How Can AV/IT Convergence Affect You?

Among technology buzz words, AVI/IT convergence gets high rankings. From exploring PC-based platforms for distributing messaging across corporate campuses to processing digital audio signals for stadiums and theaters, the worlds of audiovisual technology and information technology have merged into a field of common ground.

AV/IT convergence is an essential ingredient to making meeting room technologies work smoother, faster and more efficiently. It’s a vital means of improving communication and collaboration across all industries – from the IT team working to implement a plan for distance classroom cameras to the house of worship technicians helping to enhance the quality of a Sunday morning sermon broadcast over a network of churches.

With a move towards comprehensive communications technologies, no longer is it just an “AV” or “IT” responsibility to get an advanced presentation system up and running, and stay up and running. In order to get the desired end result, AV and IT specialists now need to work together to collaborate and unify the intricacies of infrastructure and maintenance.

As organizations move to streamline costs and increase their competitive edge, advanced video communications such as IP-based video conferencing, telepresence and digital signage have become necssary solutions. AV/IT convergence means the merging of system control for these solutions, eliminating the isolation of separate buildings and separate networks. This is especially important for companies working on a multi-location strategy for increased ROI and growth. It means a coming together of AV and IT professionals to reach the best outcome for an organization’s communication needs.

Tell us, what’s your take on AV/IT convergence? How is it impacting your organization?
