The executive boardroom is no longer an island unto itself. “We no longer take a room or project approach,” says one AV integrator. “It’s more of a platform approach so it crosses the entire enterprise.” With more and more collaboration technologies incorporated into boardrooms, many organizations want to ensure investments impact more than board meetings.
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.

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.
A good AV professional’s work is really never done. Before you can hand off a system to its users, you have to test it and confirm that it works as expected. This set of tips, distilled from InfoComm International’s AV System Performance Verification Guide, explains how to check five items off your video systems verification report.
With Integrated Systems Europe 2015 right around the corner, we talked to AV professionals about the $17.5 billion European market for AV products and services. Which countries are growing the fastest? Which are growing the slowest? And which AV technologies and applications offer the greatest opportunities? Read about it in this InfoComm special report.
The humble house of worship is often a trailblazer in the use of audiovisual technology. From projection-mapping to large-scale LED videowalls, many of today’s modern churches are focusing on what members see in order to underscore what they hear. “We’re moving toward an environment in which we no longer have to be limited to conventional formats,” says one AV integrator. Read the special report.
As video technology grows more sophisticated and prices continue to drop, live events professionals have engaged in a race to create bigger and better video experiences.

Like peanut butter and chocolate before it, in retrospect it seems inevitable that social media and live-event AV technology would make for a cool mashup. Increasingly, we’re seeing pictures and video from Facebook, and images and comments from Twitter and Instagram leaping from users’ mobile devices onto 60-inch LCDs and 20-foot projection screens at corporate and other types of events. Dan Daley gives an in-depth look at this trend.
At the InfoComm 2013 show in June, 4K display was all the rage. But what could you realistically do with all those pixels? We survey AV professionals to find out how long, if ever, it will take the industry to embrace 4K.
