Top 10 Audiovisual Consulting/Services Companies - 2020

The technology sector is growing more dynamic by the day, even as more efficient tools are replacing numerous devices and legacy technologies. In the same vein, the audiovisual (AV) industry has come a long way from CRT television. With the advent of digitalization, AV technology exploded on the scene and transformed the overall experience of concerts, films, and corporate events. As a multi-million dollar industry, AV is being applied in industries such as retail, education, healthcare, government, and entertainment, among others.

With the demand for AV technologies skyrocketing, AV services providers are rigorously engaging in testing new AV devices and tools to meet consumer needs. The providers offer not only the equipment but also the software and manage the entire setup. Their range of services includes sound management, recording, projection, display of exhibits, and much more. In the age of IoT devices, service providers need to stand out from the competition. To that end, there is greater adoption of technologies such as plasma displays that can help improve the visual and auditory experience. New solutions have translated market demands for digital content, controlled systems, and teaching spaces into opportunities. Besides, cloud systems integrated with AV software are being increasingly adopted today.

In another developing trend, the cloud-based AI-enabled models are immensely benefiting the AV service providers. These models simplify the collection of data through sensors. Leveraging AI, the future can be predicted effectively to avert system failures and reduce energy consumption. Organizations are implementing remote engagements through intelligent devices and services to remove hardware clutters in collaboration spaces. Besides, the market demands vendors to adapt to venue architectures and deliver customized solutions. IP video distribution and wireless presentations are driving the future while providing a vast expanse for innovation in this space. That said, AV technology will continue to bolster new possibilities in visual experience.

To make the most of their technology investments, companies need the help of experts who have in-depth knowledge and experience in guiding their clients toward adopting efficient AV devices. The same ought to hold for the service providers: the ability to deliver service that aligns well with customer requirements.
