Now Is the Best Time to Buy

Article excerpt

RIGHT NOW IS THE BEST TIME TO BUY PROFESSIONAL AUDIOVISUAL EQUIPMENT for your institution. Yes, even when funding is being slashed on all levels. That's because today's AV technologies enhance classroom teaching, distance learning, and visual presentation, and have been shown to increase retention and learning outcomes.

The global AV market is strong. A $54 billion market in 2006 grew to $68 billion last year. This market, particularly in education, is showing growth in a number of areas besides projectors. According to ProAV Magazine, displays, AV conferencing, streaming media, and wireless communications lead the pack. There is also high demand for AV services, such as installation, design, programming, and training.

Today's AV equipment sets new standards in four key areas:

Quality--Today's audiovisual equipment is made better to last longer, footprints are smaller, lamps are brighter and more efficient, and software is more robust.

Value--New AV equipment does more than older equipment. Projects aren't "just projectors" anymore. Today's AV equipment is wireless, networked and internet capable. Digital signs are high- def. Audio equipment is smaller yet more powerful. Lecture capture technology allows virtually anyone, anywhere to record, edit and share content. And videoconferencing? With the networking advances of the last few years, it really is the next best thing to being there.

Savings--Audiovisual equipment is now more energy efficient than ever. That means less power used, and more money saved. And colleges and universities are discovering the benefits of campus-wide AV standardization.

Selection--As you'll see in the pages that follow, no matter what your audiovisual requirements are, you'll find a provider eager to customize a solution that's just right for your institution, matched to your needs--and your price point.

When you consider today's high standards of quality, value, savings, and selection, the logic actually becomes crystal clear.

There's never been a better time to purchase AV equipment than right now.
