The start of 2014 saw a monumental change in the AV industry. The developing digital solutions of the last five years are now today’s standards. Advanced Access Content System rules eliminates analogue outputs on electronic devices. These rules require that manufacturers cease selling any devices capable of analogue video output after 2013. As well the Digital Millennium Copyright Act criminalizes the act of converting an HDCP encrypted digital output to analogue.
Basically this signals the sunset of anologue signaling and the emergence of a long awaited digital platform. Life made easier.
Prior to the move toward an integrated IP driven digital solution, audio visual analogue systems consisted of various standalone devices for each application requirement (presentations, training video, speakerphones) with labour intensive complex connectivity and controllers.
With the advent of digital audio visual it enables us to incorporate all of a client’s meeting room needs into a cohesive integrated system. Incorporating high definition digital audio, video, data and voice via the I.T network to provide video conferencing, presentations, e-training and collaborative meetings.
Reflective of this is a statement from InfoComm 2014.
“IP based AV applications are forcing the move into the I.T. space, therefore moving the budget and control into I.T. by extension it is also moving into the IT systems Integrator field of expertise and away from the traditional audio visual supplier.”
