Innovations in digital technologies in 2012 marked this year as one of remarkable progress. Businesses, government centers, education institutions, hotels, bars and casinos – all of these organizations found a need to upgrade or launch new audiovisual solutions in their operations.
The advancement of touch-screen technology, coupled with smarter software packages and hidden cables behind the scenes, is a major factor in extending communications, visual graphics and digital displays like never seen before. More rapidly, customers are seeing digital signage everywhere. Flat-panel monitors running 2D or 3D content on color-filled LED or HD screens brighten up restaurants and bars, libraries and schools, business auditoriums and cafeterias, casinos, entertainment outlets and more.
In the last three years, growing demands for video conferencing, streaming media, signal management, digital displays and more helped grow sales of audio-visual solutions to reach 11 percent growth between 2009 and 2012. Estimates vary, but growth is staggering. Intel has suggested that the growth in digital signs will reach some 22 million signs by 2015.
And it’s not only in retail establishments or in business rooms. Teachers and students in high school, college and university classrooms are seeing the innovations, too. Digital content is being displayed nearly as fast as it’s being created, and those who are receiving the content have clear, unfiltered access to data. This teacher-content-student interactivity is making for new ways of learning in classrooms. Audio-visual systems are helping to change the way that students and teachers interact with the coursework and programs.
In business, it’s obviously important to invest in audio-visual technologies, not only to stay on top of current innovations, but to maintain leadership edge against competitors. Top audio-visual systems integrators are working closely with corporations and large organizations to inform and design new A/V systems, amazing capabilities and more.
There are many opportunities to use audio-visual components in business practice. Audio-visual technology lets companies bring everyone into the meeting. Integrated sales meetings let more people be involved, and help reduce travel expenses. Video conferencing technology also helps to create closer bonds between managers and employees, as well as employees spread out in different countries. This is how the world of audio-visual is helping to change environments.
The top global customers for audiovisual products and services are in corporate, education and government markets. These are the leading users and innovators for AV goods and services. By focusing automation processes and operations with AV systems, integration and technologies, these organizations are helping to create and nurture increasing communication and collaboration practices.
If your company has not yet invested in technology screens and systems in its offices, engineering centers and distribution facilities, it may be the right time to seek out an integrator of audio-visual systems to bring your management up to speed on the latest state-of-the-art needs for growing businesses.
