Not a lot of people know what audiovisual is. Most people will relate audiovisual to concerts or fashion shows. Audiovisual (AV) means possessing both a sound and a visual component, such as slide-tape presentations, films, television programs, fashion show productions, concerts and church services.

Audiovisual service providers frequently offer web streaming, video conferencing and live broadcast services.
The professional audiovisual industry is a multibillion-dollar industry, comprising the manufacturers, dealers, systems integrators, consultants, programmers, presentations professionals and technology managers of audiovisual products and services. Commercial audiovisual can sometimes be a very lengthy process to get it right.

In a commercial world, boardroom audiovisual is usually installed for the executives who want to have meetings with colleagues or customers around the world. Both visual and audio quality has to be crystal clear. For example, with built-in ceiling microphones, no matter where you stand or you speak in the room, the participants on the other side should hear you clearly without knowing if you have changed the positions.
When creating an array of boardrooms for customers, it has been seen that you have to be able to balance the pattern from the audio and microphone, so there is no interruption in the sound quality for the individual/s listening in.

The application of audiovisual systems can be easily found in video-conferencing, audio-conferencing, web-conferencing and data-conferencing. Some will be installed in presentation rooms, auditoriums, and lecture halls; command and control centres; digital signage, and more.
Concerts and corporate events are among the most obvious venues where audiovisual equipment is used in a staged environment. We can see the significant growth in this industry for the past 15 years according to InfoComm International.
