Common AV Misconceptions: 4 Mistakes to Avoid

Are you familiar with the most common AV misconceptions? Audiovisual systems can instantly transform your facility. They provide a combination of auditory and visual elements to enhance communication, entertainment, and overall user experience.

Installing an audiovisual system in your business or facility allows seamless collaboration and creativity for everyone. If you are considering investing in an audiovisual system, clearing any misconceptions about the AV industry that may concern you is essential. 

Common AV Misconceptions to Avoid

AV is Only Useful For Large Events

One of the biggest AV misconceptions is that these systems are only beneficial for events with a large attendance. This is not the case. AV systems can be installed in various facilities with varying population sizes.

AV systems are meant to be an innovative solution that enhances communication, whether that is in a visual or auditory way. Installing an AV system for a conference room with five people or a stadium with 3,000 fans will have the same impact. It will immediately enhance communication!

I Should Install My Own AV System to Save Money

Making your own pizza at home can be fun and harmless, but making your own AV setup is not. Installing your own AV system is never a good idea if you’re not an expert. Wires, coils, and electrical circuits could go awry any second.

Some believe that they can save money by creating their own DIY solutions. In the long run, you’ll have to spend more money to fix your homemade audiovisual system within a few years. We recommend saving time and energy and talking to an AV consultant before making significant changes.

Newer is Always Better

The term “newer is always better” has been used plenty of times but has never been proven accurate. People must remember that the most recent AV equipment does not always guarantee the best quality. There is no reason to discard equipment that has previously worked for you for the latest version of a technology trend.

For example, if you love your webcam that was gifted to you ten years ago, keep it! You can upgrade it with speakers and a monitor, and now you have a different AV setup. Don’t let this common AV misconception stop you from leveraging technology that works for you. 

I Don’t Need a Warranty  

Often, people may believe they do not need a warranty for their AV system. This is a huge misconception. Warranties protect the buyer and should be a significant factor when choosing an audiovisual consultant.

A warranty often provides for a specific remedy, such as repair or replacement, if the equipment or technology fails. Most AV companies have up to a 1-year warranty policy. At CSAV Systems, our team offers a three-year warranty policy that states CSAV Systems will repair or replace any defective equipment or workmanship.
