ANSI Approves InfoComm AV Systems Design Standard

Standard Complements, Coordinates, System Documentation for Allied Professions
FAIRFAX, VA – May 25, 2010 – The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the InfoComm International Board of Directors have released InfoComm’s second standard, ANSI/INFOCOMM 2M-2010 Standard Guide for Audiovisual Systems Design and Coordination Processes.
The purpose of this standard is to provide a description of the methods, procedures, tasks, and deliverables typically recommended or applied by professionals in audiovisual (AV) systems design and integration projects. The Standard enables clients and other design and construction team members to confidently assess whether the responsible parties are providing the expected services.
A successful professional audiovisual system installation depends on the clear definition and coordination of processes, resources, and responsibilities of the design and installation project teams. A properly documented audiovisual system provides the information necessary to understand and implement the system goals and project requirements in a logical and efficient manner. The documentation should complement and coordinate with related architectural, engineering, and construction documentation. The Standard Guide for Audiovisual Systems Design and Coordination Processes outlines a consistent set of the standard tasks, responsibilities, and deliverables required for professional audiovisual systems design and construction.
“Modern AV systems have become increasingly complex and interconnected to other building systems such as network, electrical, HVAC and building automation/energy conservation,” said InfoComm International Executive Director and CEO, Randal A. Lemke, Ph.D. “Because AV systems provide critical operational functions for the owner, an organized approach to commonly accepted planning, design, and integration procedures is essential. This standard provides a practical guideline for defining the audiovisual system requirements and a clear accountability structure for the development and execution of the system design components. It provides a consistent reference for the project team, including architects and other trades, from the initial design phase through construction, project completion, and building occupancy.”
The Standard Guide for Audiovisual Systems Design and Coordination Processes was developed in an open process with consensus and transparency, in accordance with ANSI requirements. In addition to the Standard, InfoComm has developed an Audiovisual Systems Project Documentation Sample, a 175-page set of sample plans and documents which provides a coordinated example of the unique documentation required for AV systems, clearly illustrating how the audiovisual systems documents relate to documentation from allied professions. The collection also illustrates elements of the Standard Guide for Audiovisual Systems Design and Coordination Processes.
“InfoComm thanks InfoComm Standards Planning Committee and Chair, Richard Derbyshire, and members of the Standard Guide for Audiovisual Systems Design and the Coordination Processes Task Group, moderated by Brian Huff, CTS-D, LEED® AP, ISF-C, for their dedication to developing this standard,” said Lemke.
Copies of ANSI/INFOCOMM 2M-2010 Standard Guide for Audiovisual Systems Design and Coordination Processes and the Audiovisual Systems Project Documentation Sample can be purchased from ANSI at webstore.ansi.org. Copies will also be for sale at the InfoComm 2010 Show Store in Las Vegas, Nevada, June 9-11, 2010. For more information, please visit www.infocomm.org/standards.
