AV Design 3: Applied Design

This six-day, instructor-led virtual classroom course will focus on the inter-device communication aspects of system design.

In this course you will focus on the communication aspects between devices in a design, exploring different topics including digital video, audio, networks, and more; plus the necessary security considerations. You will finish with a critical eye that will help you design better systems for your clients, knowing how to communicate design intent throughout the process, developing AV designs and documentation, and determining system specifications and parameters (bandwidth, EDID, HDCP, BYOD, etc).

This course is aimed at all professionals who need to read, create or work with AV designs including: AV designers, end-user engineers (schools, universities, companies, etc.), design managers (construction companies, integrators and architects, among others).

In this course you will learn how to:

  • Determine bandwidth requirements for digital audio and video signals
