ANSI approves InfoComm AV systems performance standard

InfoComm's latest standard, ANSI/INFOCOMM 10-2013, Audiovisual Systems Performance Verification, has been approved by ANSI, a private, non-profit organisation that administers and coordinates the U.S. voluntary standardisation and conformity assessment systems.

ANSI/INFOCOMM 10-2013, Audiovisual Systems Performance Verification provides a systematic and practical approach to verifying performance of AV systems. This standard will provide practitioners the ability to produce a verifiable evaluation of the AV system based on quality assurance, testing, and acceptance, and will ensure the system conforms to the owners' operational needs, as established in the system/project documentation.

A one-page overview can be found at infocomm.org/standards.

David Labuskes, CTS, RCDD, executive director and CEO, InfoComm said: "In order for this standard to be a true success it must become integrated into the way the AV industry does business. I urge manufacturers to encourage their partners to use this standard, integrators and design consultants to implement the standard and technology managers to ask commercial service providers about it."
