A/V Integration: Best Practices for Design-Phase Planning and Budgeting
Audiovisual technology enhances the workplace with ever-better tools for collaboration, public safety, employee engagement, and acoustics. In fact, most clients will have some type of A/V needs within the commercial facilities you design and plan, from simple digital displays in reception areas to complex wireless collaboration systems in training rooms. Early planning and especially budgeting are paramount to successful implementation: Your clients cannot wait until FF&E to discover what the investment in these types of spaces will need to be in order to get the functionality they want and need to run their businesses. In this course, you will learn best practices for achieving optimal A/V integration during design-phase planning.
Audiovisual systems in commercial facilities can be used to improve the health, safety, and welfare of all building occupants. Using digital screens to provide wayfinding and emergency notifications, sound masking to create privacy and improve productivity, and video conferencing to improve collaboration are just a few applications that create a safe, positive workplace. Planning and budgeting effective A/V solutions must be part of design development in order to create the functionality demanded of today’s work spaces.
This is a hybrid event with in-person and online options available. Lunch will be provided for in-person attendees.
