A lot has been made of the convergence of AV and IT and its implications for the AV solutions and experiences that power narrative, enhance collaboration and more – but is it all just one big buzzword?

Mad Systems thinks so, at least in terms of the phrase’s relevance to the current AV landscape.

Mad Systems has been working on this integration and on computer-based systems for more than a decade, meaning the innovations that company is delivering today are evolutions of that concept.

However, that doesn’t mean there aren’t challenges and things to work out regarding service and maintenance. If possible, customers should look for an AV integrator and partner that supports its solutions with a long-term commitment to service and the uptime of their solutions.

It’s not about complex contracts – it’s about ensuring every system works as intended and delivers results.

As the world of AV moves toward a totally computer-based infrastructure, solutions will need to evolve to handle that shift. DrinkMe software, for example, allows customers to lay out their space and AV solution the way they want it and receive a working strategy and plan for its implementation.
