Happy 2019! What’s New on the AV Horizon?

The AV experts have spoken! Here are some of the trends that are at the top of the list for 2019 which we, at CAPTUS SYSTEMS, are following:

AV-Over-IP (Audio Visual Over Internet Protocol):  The transmission of audio-visual data over the internet is slowly but surely replacing traditional AV infrastructures. As the more advanced content of today’s 21st-century digital presentations become more & more prevalent, AV-over-IP solutions are an easy way to give audiences more engaging content. Full HD with near-zero latency & the ability to use dynamically changing content are just a few of the advantages of modern AV-over-IP appliances. With that in mind, Brian Rhatigan, Director of Business Development at Almo Professional AV, comments that the need to be on top of this technology for our clients is of vital importance, when it comes to staying relevant with the growth of the AV-over-IP method of signal distribution. (And – being on the cutting-edge & keeping-up with the ever-changing & growing AV industry is something that CAPTUS SYSTEMS does best!)

Video Walls/Signage:  The days of looped content on large video displays are becoming a thing of the past. Businesses are developing new & creative ways to make their signage more interactive & engaging to collaborators & customers alike. “The need for more affordable, easy-to-use signage will continue to grow strongly,” as is predicted by Brian Rhatigan. “The demand for video walls will continue to increase, as display costs decrease,” says Devon Wright, Senior Product Line Manager of Jupiter, by InFocus. Wright also adds that “There’s a shift in video wall technology from Large Format 4K Displays to LED, because they are efficient, cost effective, & long-lasting with minimal maintenance.”

AI (Artificial Intelligence):  According to Scott Wharton, VP & GP of Logitech Video Collaboration, AI will become mainstream in conference rooms with “Smart Meeting” technology becoming the norm – not the exception. Adam Cuzzort, CTO of Prysm agrees that “Smart Everything” will gain traction, including tools like Voice Control & Space Identity Management – which enables an employee’s profile & preferences to automatically appear on displays & other equipment as soon as they enter or leave a conference room.

Augmented/Virtual Reality: Using augmented/virtual reality for meetings brings the sharing of ideas to a whole new level. This tool enables its users to have a more immersive experience, thus greatly enhancing overall meeting participation. As is stated by Adam Cuzzort, CTO of Prysm, “Exceptional Experiences create interactive, content-centric adventures as a way to spark creativity, accelerate decisions, & propel organizational ROI.”

It looks like 2019 is shaping-up to be an exciting one for the AV Industry! 

We hope that the New Year brings you & yours great happiness & success!


Thank you!
