When AI and AV come together good, and bad, things happen
On this episode of AVWeek, we start the conversation with a piece by Daniel Newman in Commercial Integrator. What began as a look at trends for InfoComm 2019 ends in a cautionary tale about AI in audiovisual. Our panel also gets into how to convince risk-adverse customers to make the jump, or at least step, toward the cloud. After all, there are significant features and benefits to cloud services over on premise ones.
Our panel then disucsses the new AIMS initiative. This group is looking to take the SMPTE 2110 standard and apply it as an open architecture in the AV world. It would be another open standard for AV over IP within the audiovisual community. The other is Avnu Alliance and their AVB/TSN/Milan platform. The difference is the underlying body. Where Avnu is a group under the IEEE, AIMS is under SMPTE. The IEEE are network engineers and SMPTE are television and broadcast engineers.
AVIXA is sending out “standards conformance officers ” to verify their classrooms and meeting spaces meet AVIXA standards this week at InfoComm. While that is a great thing to do, we began discussing other industries. AVIXA has been evangelizing the benefits of working with the commercial audiovisual industry for years. What will it take for hospitality, transportation, and retail to make AVIXA standards for AV common practice?
