CMS Develops New Green AV Energy Management Module

New York, NY, January 30, 2009 — CMS Innovative Consultants announced today that it has developed a new AV Energy Management Module in accordance with LEED criteria that it has begun integrating into all of its audiovisual designs. The energy-saving control system module enables users to pre-set times to automatically turn the system on and off to conserve both energy and cost.

“Our new CMS Energy Management Module is a natural evolution of our ongoing commitment to incorporate innovative approaches to green audiovisual design with each client’s unique requirements,” explained Austin Parker, a CMS Project Engineer. “CMS’ involvement with LEED projects impels us to stay at the forefront of green technology.”

The new program has the ability to sense if conference equipment is not being used for a predetermined amount of time during the course of the workday. It will then issue an alert prior to commencing an automatic shutdown. In addition, the program can send a command to turn off lights and lower shades, if applicable. This shutdown process can also be set at a different inactivity time interval for after-business hours.

According to Howard A. Nunes, President/CEO of PepperDash, a leading control system programming firm, “Energy management has become one of the defining issues of 2009. The AV industry consumes more than its fair share of power, so we need to be looking for ways to reduce energy consumption. One quick and effective solution is to take advantage of control systems that are already in place or specified. By adding energy-sensitive logic to the programming, significant reductions in energy consumption can be attained.”

“Developing this module just made sense, especially at a time of heightened environmental awareness. The result is a system that reflects CMS’ high standard of expertise and creativity in producing AV design solutions that are technically superior, cost-effective and user-friendly,” said Partner Christopher J. Maione.

Client response to this module is extremely enthusiastic. CMS will continue to refine current AV technology applications and explore additional options which will further energy conservation.
