Architects/AV – Best Practices Q: How can architects design with AV in mind? A: Have AV in the project from the very beginning. Due to the length of time and scope the PACC addressed their AV needs from the beginning, but delayed naming specific products/technology as long as possible to assure the latest proven technology was implemented. Q: What Best Practices for incorporating audiovisual in Architectural Designs would you recommend? A: Knowing the needs of the customer and being familiar with CURRENT technology. This includes HD video conferencing, audio conferencing and telepresence Video wall technology, digital signage and more.
