InfoComm International is offering a member-developed resource, which will provide owners, consultants, and integrators with comprehensive verification criteria to determine if the AV system achieves the client’s objectives and is performing in accordance with the system design. The Audiovisual Systems Performance Verification Checklist, which features 162 criteria, was developed in a consensus-building manner over the last year, by a global panel of subject matter experts representing the entire industry.

“By creating and distributing this checklist, InfoComm has met its longstanding goal of establishing verification guidelines to help industry professionals and their clients communicate effectively about mutual expectations for system performance,” said David Labuskes, CTS, RCDD, Executive Director and CEO, InfoComm International. “I urge the industry to adopt this list as a basis to foster better communication between the AV industry and the people who rely on our systems.”

The new checklist is a featured requirement of InfoComm’s Certified AV Solutions Provider (CAVSP) program. Diamond CAVSPs are required to show a completed Audiovisual Systems Performance Verification Checklist for one AV installation. Emerald CAVSPs need to indicate their commitment to adopt InfoComm International’s Audiovisual Systems Performance Verification Checklist for future AV installations.

InfoComm thanks the AV Systems Performance Verification task group for the creation of this list. The group will further refine the list in the months ahead and include it as part of an InfoComm standard, currently in development, to be submitted to ANSI for consideration of adoption. As part of this process, InfoComm will offer a draft standard that will be open for public review and comment.

Members of the task group include: Matthew Silverman, CTS, PMP, George Mason University, (Moderator), John Bailey, CTS-D, CTS-I, The Whitlock Group; Jason Brameld, BSc (Hons) ARCS, MInstSCE, Mark Johnson Consultants; Greg Bronson, CTS-D, Cornell University; Paul Depperschmidt, CTS, Cisco; Richard Derbyshire, CTS, Shen Milsom & Wilke; Dan Doolen, University of Illinois; Tristan Gfrerer, Google; Mike Izatt, CTS-D, Electronic Interiors, Inc.; Tom Kopin, CTS, ISF-C, Kramer Electronics; Richard Morrison, Prince2, CPENG, CTS, Norman, Disney & Young; and Mike Quinn, BEng, Ceng, MIET, CTS-D.
