 Biamp Systems has announced AVConnect.org, a website that promotes collaboration between AV consultants, integrators, IT professionals, and end users, to ease the transition as the AV and IT fields converge.

AVConnect.org is an online platform that will help expedite the convergence of the two fields by enabling AV and IT professionals to connect, increase their understanding about the other discipline, and, ultimately, partner with one another to grow the entire industry by sharing information. “One of Biamp’s philosophies is to provide tools and resources to industry professionals, ensuring they have the best information available. With the convergence of these two industries, information was lacking. AVConnect.org helps close that gap,” says Steve Metzger, VP business development, Biamp Systems. The site features news articles that span both industries, identifies upcoming educational and networking events, shares tips and tricks for AV and IT specialists, and highlights successful cases studies from around the world.

Additionally, the site features a locator tool, enabling industry-professionals to easily find qualified integrators in their area. “My biggest hope for AVConnect.org is that it might bring together AV and IT professionals to work on appropriate standards for AV technology on networks,” says Tom Stimson, CTS, president, The Stimson Group, and creator of the AV Matters blog. “AV folks might come to better understand the demands of the unified communication networks being implemented in the IT world. And IT folks can better understand how AV can present the ‘face’ of communications in a more user-friendly form factor than a PC.”
