About InfoComm iQ
In addition to being the largest, most comprehensive, single source of audio visual equipment, service providers and case studies in the world other benefits incorporated into the AV-iQ solution include common categorization and common data presentation to simplify research, news, videos and a monthly recap of all new products entered into the database sorted by manufacturer’s name and category. InfoComm AV-iQ also serves another very important role in the Audio Visual community. They define one of the core values brought to the market by resellers and integrators; the audio visual equipment that they are authorized and trained to sell and support. While it is true that many products are now available through distribution, just having access to audio visual equipment for inclusion in projects and systems cannot be the only consideration in choosing products and their providers. Critical to the long-term investment is the proper installation, service and maintenance that is available from the provider to ensure maximum up time and full performance.
