In some respects, cabling has become less of a hardship for IT and data center managers in recent years when it comes to installation,
usage, and management.
The big buzzword when it comes to AV integration in museum-type venues is "immersive." The idea is that, as patrons become younger,
they'll be tougher to impress. They'll be so accustomed to looking down at digital content on their phone that they might not be impressed
by the non-digital wonders of the world right in front of them.

Buyer beware - in terms of safety and performance, cheap cable is no bargain. When you see CATx and fiber cable priced significantly
lower than Black Box® cable (or other name brands), put up a red flag. The cable is probably counterfeit or very cheaply made, even if it sports
a brand name, UL® number, or ETL logo.

The integrator's intro to sucess in the fastest growing AV market.
It wasn't too long ago that traditional AV integrators were called upon to satisfy the
majority of video- and audio-related projcts. But as digital signage evolved from the
simple distribution of broad-cast video to software-based data network communications, so
did the complexity and confusion. Considering all the knowledge, parts and pieces involved
in today's scalable digital signage solutions, it's no wonder that AV integrators and VARs
looking to get into this rapidly growing market segment are scratching their heads and
wondering where to begin or how much of the digital signage ecosystem they can support.

businesses," or customers that have only a small number of screens or deployments.

long-tail market, but the economy has no doubt lead even the big players in the
digital signage industry to reconsider their target customers.

Whether you're focused on equipment protection or power monitoring, environmental
monitoring systems can be helpful tools. But differences in data center size,
configuration, and complexity mean that managers don't all want to monitor the same

to video tracking of each door, while others only need to keep an eye on the temperature.
The AlertWerks II system from Black Box Network Services is a series of monitors that data
center managers can rely on whether they want to keep track of everything or just one thing.
