Corporate South Africa’s demand for AV solutions is growing rapidly, but training and professional standards are not keeping up with the market expansion. The result is that there are too many companies who don’t have the technical skills to deliver the complex solutions that clients are looking for.
Panavision Evolve has been in the AV and automation business for 20 years, and in that time have kept at the forefront of technological developments in this fast-moving industry. As a leader in their field they continue to deliver great solutions to commercial and residential clients, equipping conference centres, boardrooms, auditoriums, training centres and hotels, as well as home lighting, climate control, audio distribution, home theatre, HD distribution and complete AV control systems.

Recently Kramer Electronics joined forces with Valens, the brains behind HDBaseT. The HDBaseT technology was originally developed by Valens, who formed an HDBaseT alliance (with Samsung Electronics, Sony Pictures Entertainment, and LG Electronics) to contribute to the development of the technology.
The ultimate accolade for any lighting, sound and image control installation is to see the users instinctively operating the systems, without any training. After working three days solid to install audio-visual and control systems at Samsung's head offices in Bryanston, Corporate AV Integration arrived to hand over to the client. They were chuffed to see that the four training rooms they'd kitted out were already being used and that trainers were taking to the technology like a kitten to milk. Perhaps this had something to do with the elegance of the technical solution.
