InfoComm opens public review of energy standard

InfoComm has opened a public review period for a standard that is designed to help owners and users of AV systems cut energy usage.

The proposed draft standard - INFOCOMM 4: 2012 DSI, Audiovisual Systems Energy Management – address power consumption management of AV systems.

It does not require a specific percentage of energy reduction but requires preparation of an energy management plan that is designed to assist users in formulating their energy reduction goals. It requires baseline measurements; automation; ongoing monitoring, measurement and analysis; and education/training for owners and users of the AV systems.

The public review process is being administered in accordance with the ANSI Accredited Standards Developer process.

Commenting procedures and the draft standard are available from the InfoComm website. Comments are encouraged from InfoComm members and all interested parties, internationally. The review period will remain open until June 4, 2012.
