InfoComm releases AV Systems Performance Verification Checklist

InfoComm International’s checklist provides owners, consultants and integrators with verification criteria to determine if an AV system achieves the client’s objectives and is performing to design. InfoComm International, the trade association representing the commercial audiovisual industry, has issued a member-developed resource which will provide owners, consultants and integrators with comprehensive verification criteria to determine if a AV system achieves the client’s objectives and is performing in accordance with the system design. The Audiovisual Systems Performance Verification Checklist, which features 162 criteria, was developed in a consensus-building manner over the last year, by a global panel of subject matter experts representing the entire industry. “By creating and distributing this checklist, InfoComm has met its long-standing goal of establishing verification guidelines to help industry professionals and their clients communicate effectively about mutual expectations for system performance,” said David Labuskes, CTS, RCDD, executive director and CEO, InfoComm International (pictured). “I urge the industry to adopt this list as a basis to foster better communication between the AV industry and the people who rely on our systems.” The new checklist is a featured requirement of InfoComm’s Certified AV Solutions Provider (CAVSP) program.  Diamond CAVSPs are required to show a completed Audiovisual Systems Performance Verification Checklist for one AV installation. Emerald CAVSPs need to indicate their commitment to adopt InfoComm International’s Audiovisual Systems Performance Verification Checklist for future AV installations. In order to continue the industry dialogue on quality, InfoComm has convened a Standards Task Group to publish an InfoComm standard based on this list that will be submitted to ANSI for consideration of adoption by the second quarter of 2013. As part of this process, in the coming months InfoComm will offer a draft standard that will be open for public review and comment.  InfoComm International will present a seminar on the checklist at the ISE show in Amsterdam. AV Systems Performance Checklist: Deliver What Was Promised will take place on 30 January 2013 at 15:00 – 15:50 in room D203. www.infocomm.orghttp://www.iseurope.org/home.php?navi=35&conference_sfid=a00D000000ObCqkIAF
