InfoComm Renames Certified AudioVisual Solutions Provider Program

Other changes to the program will be made effective 1 July

FAIRFAX, VA - March 1, 2012 - InfoComm International® is changing the name of its program designed to recognise companies that invest in certification and education for its employees.


The Audiovisual Solutions Provider program has changed its name back to the Certified Audiovisual Solutions Provider® program. Other changes to the program will be made effective 1 July.

"In addition to new logos, there will be a greater marketing investment to promote the designation to key purchasing and end-user communities, and a new Audiovisual Systems Performance Verification Checklist that companies can elect to use," says Duffy Wilbert, CTS, CAE, Senior Vice President, InfoComm International.

The checklist is intended to provide owners, consultants, and integrators with a comprehensive and singular source of tests to determine if the audiovisual system achieves the client's goals or objectives and that the system performs in accordance with the best practices of the industry. By providing this list to the audiovisual industry, InfoComm is establishing a set of guidelines to help industry professionals and their clients communicate effectively about their expectations for system performance. InfoComm plans to obtain ANSI accreditation of the Checklist in 2012. At that time, the Checklist may be modified for current best practices.
