The Audiovisual Systems Performance Verification Guide is designed to serve as a companion to the ANSI/InfoComm International Standard 10:2013. It describes how to implement each verification item through theory and sample test sheets. It also includes information about functional-based testing and performance expectation review. It also explains how to use the Standard as an assessment tool and provides a sample completed verification list.
The Standard and the Guide are intended for all parties involved in the audiovisual system installation process including consultants, integrators, manufacturers, technology support staff, owners, third-party commissioning agents and architects to verify the performance of audiovisual systems throughout the integration process.
In case you didn’t know, the ANSI/InfoComm International Standard 10:2013 defines 160 items to verify an audiovisual (AV) system’s functionality and performance in accordance with the system’s project documentation.
The Standard identifies audiovisual system performance-evaluation requirements for the following 13 functional categories:
- Audio Performance (AP)
- Video Performance (VP)
- Audio/Video Performance (AVP)
- Cable Management, Termination, and Labeling (CABL)
- Control Performance (CON)
- Electrical (ELEC)
- Information Technology (IT)
- Operations and Support (OP)
- Physical Environment (PHYSE)
- Physical Installation (PHYSI)
- Serviceability (SERV)
- Wireless (WL)
- System and Record Documentation (DOC)
Out of the total number of verification items, 16 require a measurement in addition to pass/fail to validate performance. Further, 11 items should include a measurement in addition to pass/fail to validate performance.
The verification reporting process can be customized to the needs of any AV systems integration project. The framework outlined in the Standard is intended to be used with the organization’s existing project and quality management processes, and existing organizational verification processes can be adapted to conform to the Standard.
