Greetings and salutations, all!This is the first blog post for AVDawn – a place to learn about the wild, wonderful and wacky world of A/V Systems Integration. Wha?! You don’t know what that is? Well, let me tell you!A/V, as the initials suggest, stands for Audio and Video… or audiovisual. Systems are, well, systems. And Integration is tying it all together. Now that we’ve covered basic vocab, what does it mean? It means the design, installation and ‘making work’ of modern communications systems comprised of audiovisual equipment – speakers, microphones, projectors and screens, plasma displays, LCD displays, electronic whiteboards, videoconferencing units, audioconferencing units, control systems and all the necessary gizmos and doo-dads that make it all work (switchers, interfaces, scalers, mixers, amplifiers, etc.)
This is a place to geek out on the latest and greatest from the world of A/V. A forum to discuss new products and companies, to read current events and news reports that impact our industry, to generally learn all about A/V in its many forms, and for me to get up on my soapbox sometimes. Hey! It’s *my* blog!! ^_^
All comments are welcomed here, though flames and trolls will be dealt with appropriately! I hope everyone will enjoy this blog. Cheers, all!
