What questions do I need to consider when choosing an AV solution?
Some things to think about include the following:
- Do you have any equipment or technologies you would like to reuse?
- What elements of your network infrastructure need to be integrated? Will they be capable of handling the increased demand?
- What are the acoustic properties and ambient light levels in the areas where you will install your AV solutions?
- How many rooms or areas do you need to be equipped? Do they need to be connected as part of a single system, or will they each operate independently?

What services does Activo provide for audio and visual solutions?
Analysis: We start by dispatching a team of specialists to interview key operational personnel from your organization. This investigative process aids our understanding of your core business – your technical, logistical, and capital needs, communications obstacles, and future visual delivery plans.
Design: We bring accomplished designers, specially trained representatives, and highly skilled audio and video engineers to make your ultimate goals a reality. Through this collaboration, we work to overcome engineering challenges with design modifications that maximize end-user satisfaction.
Project Management and Integration: According to your needs, systems are cabled, connected, rack-mounted, documented, and field-tested by factory-trained and industry-certified technicians before delivery. Once complete, we coordinate and manage the on-site installation to seamlessly integrate a finished product into your facility. Our integration technicians will then conduct a comprehensive system performance analysis and certification.
Documentation: We provide comprehensive “as-built” signal flow drawings, system documentation, and project and equipment manuals to better orient you with your system. More sophisticated and comprehensive integrations may warrant equipment inventory and wire-run databases with client-approved mnemonic schemes in various electronic formats.
Service and Maintenance: We staff technical services departments comprised of engineers, field service technicians, and service support personnel committed to effective, long-term service and maintenance that extends beyond traditional warranty protection. Our service and maintenance agreements protect your investment with on-site diagnostic and field service support and assist with predictable and controlled maintenance fees. We leverage our position with suppliers to obtain the best support and training to maintain our distinction among our competitors as the benchmark for quality post-sale support.
Equipment Procurement: Activo has long-term alliances with many leading visual communications and data networking manufacturers. This affords our specialists access to a vast pool of equipment and technologies.
Long-term Solutions: Our systems are designed to grow with your organization’s changing needs, offering technological innovations as hardware and software upgrades are delivered to the market.
What are the most common types of video systems available?
The three most common kinds of video systems are:
- Projection Systems
- Display Systems
- Video Wall Systems
Each has its advantages and drawbacks surrounding costs, quality, and other factors that need to be considered when choosing the AV solution best suited to your needs.
What are some of the pros and cons of each type of video system?
Projection systems are the most cost-effective option per inch and can be hidden when not in use. However, they require lower ambient light levels, and focus needs to be set to work effectively.
Display systems provide some of the clearest images and do not require ambient light, though they have a 90” limitation.
Video wall systems offer high-quality images, do not need ambient light, and can be used to create one extensive display system. They are also the most expensive option (on a cost-per-inch basis), and only LCD type can be used for videos.
Can my AV solution be integrated with other components of my network infrastructure?
Not only can your AV solutions be integrated as part of your network infrastructure, but we recommend they are to ensure you’re maximizing the performance of your system as a whole.
For example, suppose you are a business that uses conferencing. In that case, you may need physical equipment and endpoints connected to collaboration tools and powered by sufficient bandwidth, which in turn relies on solid structured cabling. For your infrastructure to work effortlessly, each component within it needs to work seamlessly together.
