 Raise the Bar

When 98 percent of AV professionals in an InfoComm International Market Research survey say they’d recommend InfoComm standards to industry colleagues, the advantage is clear. Here’s what one of your peers has to say:

“InfoComm International's audiovisual standards are a great resource for a country like India. Measuring the performance of the deliverables in an AV system can be a challenge in the Indian infrastructure industry. Adopting and following AV system performance and verification standards will help AV professionals provide consistent, measurable quality at a reasonable price. It will benefit the customers and will create a level playing field for providers.”
— Ratnesh Javeri , CTS®-D, Managing Director, Innovative Systems & Solutions, Mumbai
