A Message From the Directors

Dear Friends,

We are looking forward to a great year of professional development and industry engagement in India. InfoComm International® is expanding the team that supports the India market, and already AV professionals in the region have been furthering their careers through InfoComm certification, as you will read about in this Update.

We are also thrilled to announce that in 2016, InfoComm will again partner with Broadcast Engineering Consultants India Limited to bring high-quality, hands-on training to AV installers all across India. Students will learn how to properly prepare, terminate and pull cable. They will also study circuit theory, conduit capacity, signal separation, earthing and loudspeaker installation.

InfoComm's relationship with BECIL has been valuable to AV professionals throughout India and we are happy to continue our affiliation in 2016. We hope you will take advantage of these and many other InfoComm programs this year. And it is never too early to mark your calendars: InfoComm India 2016 will be 12-14 Sept. in Mumbai. We will see you there!

Design Boot Camp Comes to Bengaluru

What exactly is InfoComm Design Boot Camp? It is three classes in one, taught over nine days, covering everything an AV designer or prospective CTS-D would need to know about the calculations, documentation and technology behind every great AV design. If you want a sneak peak at Design Boot Camp as it is taught at InfoComm International headquarters in Fairfax, Virginia, watch the video.

Design Boot Camp is coming to Bengaluru, 16-25 Feb. (there is no class 20 Feb.). InfoComm Staff Instructor Rob Brown, CTS-D, CTS-I, will meet students at the Fortune Park JP Celestial hotel and take them through three straight courses: AV Design 1: Environment, AV Design 2: Infrastructure and AV Design 3: Applied Design. According to one of your peers who has experienced Design Boot Camp, "Along with planning and design of AV for different applications, the training also covers various standards and concepts associated while working with other trades including HVAC, electrical, interior designer, lighting, IT and networking, and architects." Shailesh Shukla of Godrej & Boyce Mfg. Co. Ltd., said, "The training helped me to understand the various critical measurement requirements for AV designs."
