Audiovisual systems administration is complicated and challenging. Deployments rely on several different technology providers to assemble the complete solution, each with its own requirements, software tools and management approach. With the proliferation of AV systems over the last several years, a new challenge is being presented to the AV community: how do we monitor and manage these systems through their lifecycle at scale? While updating firmware on one device by hand is fine, what happens when you need to update 100's or 1000's of devices remotely all over the world. How will you know if there’s an issue with these rooms and how that issue impacts other parts of the system? And how can you make this simpler through specification and standards? Explore these topics and more. This course is designed for anyone who is responsible for the technical management and support of AV systems post-installation, but will also benefit design engineers, programmers, and manufacturers. Register for this course as we explore the future of the AV industry!
You will learn to:
Identify the core challenges with AV systems management
Explore standard technologies that can enable powerful management capabilities
Examine how prioritizing management capabilities during specification can save time, produce better results, and avoid costly mistakes
Demonstrate how we can utilize open-source software to monitor and automate AV systems

Is there a replacement company or enterprise certification program in the works, or will individual certifications be the only ones offered? I have been including certification requirements and preferences in our enterprise AV SOWs for a while now, and need to know whether I should simply append with "or equivalent company certification" or just remove the section on company certs...
