InfoComm has opened the public review and comment period on the raft
Audiovisual Systems Energy Management Standard until June 4.
This Standard addresses power consumption management of audiovisual (AV)
systems. Although there is no requirement for a specific percentage of
energy reduction, the Standard requires preparation of an energy management
plan that will assist users in formulating their energy reduction goals by
requiring baseline measurements; automation; ongoing monitoring, measurement
and analysis; and education/training for owners and users of the AV systems.
The Standard addresses power consumption requirements of the AV system as a
whole, while allowing the user of the Standard flexibility in system design,
as well as selection of individual components.
This is a fantastic way to participate in the industry and help with the
development of a new standard. Commenting procedures and the draft standard
are available from the InfoComm website at www.infocomm.org/standards.
