Top 20 AudioVisual Technology Companies - 2017
The Smithsonian Museum reopened ‘Malta’s Hypogeum’ to the public this month, equipped with audiovisual technology to enhance the experience of visitors. The technological makeover enables an additional 70 people to virtually tour the site on a daily basis from the Smithsonian lobby.
Audiovisual technology solutions have become all-pervasive across industries. Initially conceived for business meetings and conference rooms, today it stands as a multi-billion dollar industry itself, sustaining a variety of players—manufacturers, systems integrators, presentation professionals, dealers, and consultants. These players are not just proficient in audio and visual media, as implied by the name, but are required to show expertise in video quality, lighting, display and projection systems, and ambience as well. The applications span across corporate settings, education, healthcare, retail, hospitality, tourism, military, and government sectors.
The market demands vendors to adapt to venue architectures and deliver tailored solutions. IP video distribution and wireless presentations are swiftly eclipsing their predecessors, providing a wide expanse for innovation in this space. Virtual and Augmented Reality are definitely going to be at the forefront of audiovisual technology—in fact, already on the checklist.
In the last few months, a distinguished panel comprising of CEOs, CIOs and analysts, along with CIOReview’s editorial board reviewed and shortlisted the top companies that are at the forefront of delivering turnkey AV solutions.
