The Internet of Things (IoT) is impacting almost every segment of business today, and the AV industry is no exception. It’s imperative for the AV industry to prepare for an interconnected marketplace in the very near future. For AV integrators, learning how their new and existing technology can be used in combination with loT to enhance business functions, will provide a competitive edge. How? Let’s explore the IoT’s impact on the AV industry.
In business, data is king. According to the “Unlocking the Potential of the Internet of Things,” study published by McKinsey & Company, analysts project by 2025, data from connected devices will yield insights driving potential economic value of as much as 11 Trillion USD. This means that, as an integrator, the loT offers you new ways to share, store, and deliver this vital data—all in real time. Connecting the devices you work with to the loT will enable automated data analysis, which will provide you with more precise data, faster than ever before.
One of the examples of IoT usage in AV is the application of cognitive computing, like IBM’s Watson IoT platform. The Watson IoT platform’s cognitive engine can be used to develop customized, integrated solutions that pull data from connected AV devices. That data can then be used to optimize the user experience.
Sound crazy? It’s not. Multiple interfaces, sensors, connected devices, voice recordings, and textual interchanges all provide previous data regarding user preferences and can adapt without additional programming to engage with the user, as well as other loT devices. The loT using data to help you manage AV systems, learn from performance data, and improve your customers’ user experience is just scratching the surface when it comes to the potential benefits the […]
