Top 20 Audiovisual Companies - 2018

As a multibillion-dollar industry today, audiovisual (AV) technology has become a ubiquitous solution applied within thriving vertical markets such as retail, education, healthcare, hospitality, government, entertainment, business, and marketing. With the advent of digitalization, the overall experience of a film, concert, or even a corporate event has transformed into a much-evolved concept through AV technology. Manufacturers, dealers, consultants, programmers, and system integrators are essential to the creation, implementation, and the maintenance of AV products and services.

AV systems find their applications in collaborative conferencing, presentation rooms, lecture halls, command and control centers, and digital signage. New solutions have translated market demands for digital content, controlled systems, and teaching spaces into opportunities. Home cinema systems, media streamers, game consoles, speakers, and headphones feature the expertise of audio and visual media.

Organizations are implementing remote engagements through intelligent devices and services to reduce hardware clutters in collaboration spaces. Solutions like converged all-in-one computer-run systems, cloud-based technology such as Video-as-a-service, and VR promise huge leaps in the AV space.

In the last few months, a distinguished panel comprising of CEOs, CIOs and analysts, along with CIOReview’s editorial board reviewed and shortlisted the companies that are at the forefront of delivering turnkey AV solutions. We present to you CIOReview’s “20 Most Promising Audiovisual Solution Providers - 2018,” featuring the companies that are delivering enriched AV experiences.
