AV Stakeholders Unite! A Standard for Architectural Drawing Symbols
Finally, one set of AV symbols for infrastructure drawings that will streamline communication among AV professionals, architects and other trades. Now open for public review, CEA/CEDIA J-STD-710 Audio, Video and Control Architectural Drawing Symbols, answers three vexing questions:
- Where is it? (How is the AV component integrated into the building?)
- What is it? (How do I know what the symbol represents?)
- How big is it? (Does it appear to-scale on the drawing?)
Review the standard before Nov. 11.
