As end users become more dependent on and infused with communication technologies, the demand for applications integrating AV and IT is growing. For instance, IT networks, servers and compression technologies are utilized to share and distribute audiovisual messaging throughout a building or across the globe.

As the demand for video content to be stored, transferred and shared continues to grow, the convergence of these technologies grows. And as the global AV industry is slated to grow at 4.3 percent from 2018 to 2023, synergies between AV and IT will certainly translate to corresponding growth in the IT industry.


When IP Empowers AV

Network bandwidth used to be a stumbling block when it came to distributing large volumes of multimedia content over LAN infrastructures. No more. Networked AV now distributes content from a single source to hundreds of displays. In fact, according to market research firm Futuresource Consulting, sales of AV over IP products have been increasing by 130 percent year-over-year.

Take Microsoft Production Studios, a 65,000-square-foot facility, with 17video edit rooms, three sound stages, two insert stages, two production control rooms, and five audio rooms which handles all of Microsoft’s corporate communications. Up to 2,800 projects are undertaken every year. AV and IT teams work closely together to design, deploy and scale the AV network, while IP-based audio and video equipment allows teams to work on productions anywhere on the extensive campus.

"I used to dream of the day we could talk across cities and continents to our colleagues and partners as though they were right in front of us. Today, thanks to pro-AV systems and Info-Comm Technologies, virtual meetings have become the norm. We can share documents and visuals, and see one another, without leaving our offices and even homes. It’s my dream come true."
