Igniting education for a networked world

InfoComm International introduces three-day intensive course on Networked AV Systems in London

London, UK - 9 October 2013 - InfoComm International®, the trade association representing the commercial audiovisual technology industry, announces its very first three-day in-depth course on Networked AV Systems for UK audiovisual professionals at the conveniently located Hilton Green Park Hotel, London, UK from 29 to 31 October 2013. The Networked AV Systems course will be presented by InfoComm International senior staff instructors, Rod Brown, CTS-D, CTS-I and Paul Streffon, MBA, CTS-D, CTS-I, Network+.


Chris Lavelle, Regional Director, UK & Ireland said: "Without a thorough understanding of IP networks and the way AV networks operate within them, it is likely that what the customer expects to experience won't match what they ultimately see or hear. The AV world has changed and if you are not knowledgeable about IT you are at a distinct disadvantage."

Knowledge transfer

Over a number of years, InfoComm International has worked with the IT industry pinpointing what an audiovisual networking professional should know about IP networks. This valuable knowledge is incorporated into the course using a mix of theory and practical exercises.

The class explores the impact of audiovisual applications on enterprise networks, addresses client needs, trade offs between quality and bandwidth and how to navigate conflicts between network policies and customer demands. Remote monitoring and management, streaming, conferencing, and other software applications will also be addressed.

"Audiovisual professionals will walk away from the course with demonstrated practical knowledge of the AV/IT cultural divide, and how to agree, document and adhere to the shared expectations of networked systems," added Lavelle.

Interested participants are encouraged to register early, as space is limited. For further information, please contact Ben Barnard at bbarnard@infocomm.org, +44 14423 45100 or visit: http://www.infocomm.org/cps/rde/xchg/infocomm/hs.xsl/38269.htm
