What is AV equipment?

AV equipment, or audio visual equipment, is the combination of sight and sound through technology devices, bringing to life anything from the conference call to communication of information within transport arrivals and departures. The world demands these capabilities in our digital age, now more than ever.

Why is AV essential?

Found in premises ranging from schools and hospitals to small enterprises, shopping centres and large global businesses, AV equipment is critical for effective communication and collaboration. 

Interactive AV allows people to connect, meet, work and learn with each other in real-time, with enhanced video conferencing and interactive displays, touch screens, and whiteboards.  

And it’s not just businesses that benefit. 

Hospitals and medical centres can display up-to-date information on wards, bed availability and doctors’ waiting times with digital signage displays. Schools and educational establishments can teach, inspire and engage with ease, through interactive presentation functionality and educational gaming with interactive touchscreen tables.

AV equipment is an essential component for many organisations, helping them to keep things moving day to day. Examples include digital signage and video walls found in environments such as; 

  • reception and waiting areas 
  • transport hubs 
  • retail spaces 
  • design studios 
  • healthcare and educational facilities 
  • corporate buildings and meeting spaces 
  • and more - delivering information, directions and critical messaging for countless purposes. 

For marketing campaigns to reach the masses with vivid imagery and quality sound, a video wall in a retail outlet is an ideal digital solution with options available for 24/7 displays, UHD, 4K and even 8K displays.

What AV do you need?

Quality AV equipment allows for multiple options and configurations and comes in a range of sizes to meet your needs and budget. From more compact screens to impactful video walls, there is a solution for you. 

When looking at the best display option for you, consider; 

  • Size - What are you displaying and where? Data-heavy text will be harder to see on a video wall, and a compelling campaign may get lost in translation on a smaller screen.
  • Connectivity - With multiple ports and inputs, WiFi requirements and mobile technologies, ensure you have the correct setup to connect your display. 
  • Interactive or touch technology - Does your content need it? Will you get a better ROI with it? Interactive whiteboard or display?  
  • Operating hours - Do you need 24/7 capability? If so, commercial-grade, high-quality AV is recommended. 

There is AV equipment to suit every need, with various ranges to suit budgets and requirements across all industry sectors. Explore our AV equipment as well as AV software and accessories to find your perfect solution.
