Professional AV has seen unprecedented change over the past few years due to many factors, including a global pandemic, supply chain constraints, reduced reliance on technology advancements and, of course, network convergence. The result is that professional AV has been flipped 180 degrees, from delivering low-volume, highly complex proprietary solutions to high-volume, low-complexity, non-proprietary solutions.
