Corporate facilities, museums, government buildings, universities, shopping malls and places of worship that use the communications equipment of the modern age all present unique audiovisual (AV) technology challenges. Each type of project requires a range of sophisticated equipment, from computers and
screens to sound systems and digital projectors, all increasingly linked by complex networking systems. Architects are challenged to stay up-to-date on the latest AV technology, and to integrate this technology seamlessly into a building design.

Today, architects and audiovisual solutions providers (AVSPs) are partnering to design interior spaces that successfully merge aesthetics, functionality and technology.
