Not so long ago no one could have imagined that AV & IT could soon be on the way to becoming one. AV has a strong background originating from the electronics world while IT has always been the industry that takes in information, manipulates and processes it to what we want. Today we have superior products that that land a plane with 300 people on board fully automatically and safely on to a busy international runway or a sophisticated robot performing a delicate surgery in life threatening conditions. The IT world is changing getting simpler faster and more productive.
We need to adapt, be innovative and improve ourselves always. The IT/AV field share so many platforms that are constantly bridging the gap between themselves. The AV field is fast becoming more sophisticated & intelligent every day. Products are simpler to use, some are plug and play and others are breaking down the frontier and truly becoming smart innovative devices. AV products are now able to send signals and content over CAT 5, 6, 7 through a normal RJ45 connector over an off the shelf standard gigabit switch. Many AV products are now cloud based & extremely secure enabling end users to access their control systems from anywhere in world from any device.
So lets embrace this change accept the new wave of technology and most of all protect and safeguard the human race.
