InfoComm Opens Public Review Period of Draft Energy Management Standard

This review public review process is being administered in accordance with the ANSI Accredited Standards Developer process

FAIRFAX, VA - InfoComm International, the trade association representing the audiovisual and information communications industries worldwide, is opening the public review and comment period for the proposed draft standard, INFOCOMM 4: 2012 DS1, Audiovisual Systems Energy Management.

This Standard addresses power consumption management of audiovisual(AV) systems. Although there is no requirement for a specific percentage of energy reduction, the Standard requires preparation of an energy management plan that will assist users in formulating their energy reduction goals by requiring baseline measurements; automation; ongoing monitoring, measurement and analysis; and education/training for owners and users of the AV systems. The Standard addresses power consumption requirements of the AV system as a whole, while allowing the user of the Standard flexibility in system design, as well as selection of individual components.

This review public review process is being administered in accordance with the ANSI Accredited Standards Developer process. Commenting procedures and the draft standard are available from the InfoComm website at Comments are encouraged from InfoComm members and all interested parties, internationally. The review period will remain open until June 4, 2012.
