How AV is transforming unlikely industries

Written by Sarah Bower, Marketing Coordinator

Enterprise-level companies, mid-sized businesses, universities, and the medical profession get a lot of the attention when it comes to AV Integration. But there are so many other avenues and growth opportunities for AV pros to enhance services and transform industries. Here is how AV is transforming a few industries that might become your ideal clients.

Order in the court

You might not think of the judicial system as a place for AV technology to take on a more prominent role. Infrastructure and tech spending are not what one often associates with the calm and old-fashioned feel of many courthouse environments. But there are so many ways AV can assist and enhance the judicial process.

For instance, AV has a role to play in the presenting and storing of evidence. With a simplified process for managing this crucial element of the law, the courtroom caseload can run more smoothly.

Another area the judicial system can benefit from AV integration is videoconferencing. By integrating video conferencing systems into the court, remotely located experts can contribute to the case. Additionally, videoconference capabilities allow for video arraignment, with the defendant held in a more secure location.

Some questions to ask as enhancements to courtroom AV is considered:

  • Can everyone who needs to hear the proceedings well?
  • Is the courtroom ADA complaint?
  • Can laptops and other devices be connected to the evidence storage system?
  • Can video and audio of the proceedings be streamed to an overflow room?

Houses of Worship

AV in spaces where people of faith gather is all about enhancing a live experience. Music and oral communication have played an important role for centuries, but now video is playing an ever more vital role as well.

High definition live broadcast of services is becoming more accessible. In the recent past, there was no middle ground between consumer-level cameras and more professional-grade equipment. Now, what used to be a $100K or higher outlay for professional lighting and video production equipment is much more in reach.

Multi-venue and multi-campus churches are making high res, low lag video a high priority. In these scenarios, on-site audio and video equipment are needed for music and other aspects of the worship service, along with live-streaming of a sermon from one location to the multiple sites where attendees gather.

For the same reasons large displays are crucial to communication in any gathering with large numbers of people, video displays are a great means of keeping worship attendees in tune with upcoming events and what to expect next in the service.

Getting Service Right at Fast Service Restaurants

Order and pay from a touchscreen kiosk. Clear communication in the drive-through. No more a far-off dream, these are elements that more and more fast-service restaurants are making the rule rather than the exception.

And even though fast service also usually means a fast visit, sound, and video design should not be an afterthought. Industry leaders in fast dining are beginning to take notice. New buildouts and refurbishments are creating ways to order on your own, and watch a bit of the news or sports as you down that salad, wrap, or burger.

Nobody wants to endure lines in a fast service restaurant. But the right audio lines are essential. Installing balanced lines—positive, negative and ground—eliminate external noises such as radio frequencies, WiFi, cell phones, along with restaurant equipment utilizing high voltage compressors, and motors.

AV in spaces where people of faith gather is all about enhancing a live experience. Music and oral communication have played an important role for centuries, but now video is playing an ever more vital role as well.

If you are looking to explore some new niches, AV is making some transformational impact on industries you might want to keep an eye on.
