How do you give everyone in an event space the same experience, no matter where they are? “Object-based audio lets you deliver both direct and ambient sound that’s fully immersive,” says one expert. Highly directional, 3D sound stands to reset the bar for live events. Get the lowdown.
With the annual conference of the Consortium of College and University Media Centers (CCUMC) on the horizon, we asked participants from higher education how their jobs have evolved — or not. “We still have one faculty member who insists on using a VCR,” says one. Still, the convergence of AV and IT has meant big change and opportunity in higher ed. Read about it in this special report.
When it comes to video, you can’t just hang a screen on a wall and expect viewers to get the picture. The visual principles of AV design are about more than technology. Here are four things to consider when determining the perfect display environment.
In March 2015, InfoComm published "Modern Approaches to Control Systems Design," which was the product of a collaborative effort by different AV industry professionals. It sought to offer a framework for designing AV control systems in light of technical change and evolution. Hear Dave Silberstein, Director of Technical and Sales Education at Crestron Electronics, and Brad Grimes, Director of Editorial Services at InfoComm, discuss today's control systems with contributor and InfoComm Today host Tim Albright, Director of Operations at Innovad.
Even if your AV system sports an impressive amount of flash, a poorly considered design could ruin it. For example, if a display's too small or placed in an awkward position, it can detract from your message. Addressing such factors requires experience in a key component of AV design: ergonomics.
Modern Approaches to Control Systems Design, an InfoComm International white paper, explores the ways that industry professionals today approach AV control systems in the context of enterprise AV and mobile, smart devices.
If sound is the stepchild to picture, then acoustics is the junior partner of sound. At least that’s how it seems sometimes. But the practice of acoustics design in spaces used for AV is more important than ever, especially as recent trends make it more challenging to communicate content effectively. Read about it in the InfoComm International® special report.
When you design an AV system, the idea is to streamline the process and ensure the system delivers on the customer’s expectations. Does your AV design go through these phases?Designer

This InfoComm International whitepaper analyzes the impact that UCC is having on the AV industry and how AV professionals can play a significant role in UCC success. It outlines the business and end-user challenges of UCC solutions and how they can be overcome through the design and integration skills of AV pros.
How do you make sure that the AV system you designed and integrated meets the client’s expectations? (And if you’re the client, how do you make sure you get what you pay for?) By continually verifying the system’s performance against established, documented criteria. Listen to members of the InfoComm task force that published the AV Systems Performance Verification Guide discuss what makes it an essential tool for AV professionals who deliver exceptional experiences and raise the bar on quality throughout the industry.
Event spaces that come with notable provenance, like Alcatraz, the former federal prison in San Francisco Bay, may find that their names are a feature subject to interpretation. But in the case of the TimesCenter, its distinction tends to attract exactly the kind of client it wants: corporate, upscale and occasionally whimsical. But they still expect a show, and they usually get one. Dan Daley reports.
The American Bar Association now lists the AV/IT Infrastructure Guidelines for Courts as one of its member resources. The document describes the design guidelines for architects, AV/IT specialists, judges, court administrators, and others concerned with courthouse and courtroom construction and renovation.
