Imagination Engineered: Leveraging AV Technologies in Classrooms and Offices


With students and teachers returning to the classroom, and as businesses debate bringing employees into the office in permanent or hybrid workflows, one thing is sure: safety is still the primary concern. What strategies can schools and businesses use to leverage audio-visual technologies to make these spaces as engaged, interactive, useful, and safe as possible? The good news is that today’s AV technologies offer many great solutions. Anthony Cianfarano, Product Manager for Professional Bravia Displays at Sony, and Todd Alinger, Senior Design Consultant for Audio Visual Environments at Diversified, joined Imagination Engineered to share some fantastic AV strategies and ideas and solutions with host Daniel Litwin.

Cianfarano said that Sony’s found the hybrid environment for both work and school will continue to be the trend.

“Sony is doing it in our own corporation,” Cianfarano said. “We have limited people in the office, and so I think the needs for both are going to be a separation of space in the office and high-quality remote learning, or remote collaboration, experience. At Sony, we offer the displays or cameras that can produce those high-quality images.”

Allinger noted the pandemic created a fluid situation where it is next to impossible to predict a time and place for a total in-person return to school and the office. “It’s not only about having the flexibility to work in an office environment as working from home, but inclusive. That’s a word that we’ve heard a lot now. And that’s making sure that the people working remotely feel like they’re actually in the work environment with those they’re collaborating. So, we leverage technology to bring that real-time inclusiveness to the table with our clients.” And Diversified works to match the AV solution that works best for them.
