Overview & Goals

A Focus on Strategy

When we decided to renovate our corporate headquarters, we saw it as a great opportunity to reimagine how we applied AV technology throughout our own organization. With this in mind, the Audiovisual Ecosystem concept was created: a holistic approach to applying AV technology in ways that truly impact the business. This microsite will walk you through that approach.
