Proving that the company is making quite the splash in the AV industry, Advanced, Canada’s premier AV & IT integrator, today announced that it has won awards in three separate ProAV award programs at the recent InfoComm 2013 show in Orlando, Florida, for its design and installation of AV solutions in 55 rooms of GE’s $40 million, 200,000-square foot facility in Markham, Ontario.
Advanced was acknowledged by Commercial Integrator and TechDecisions Media in their “Integration Awards” program, Sound & Video Contractor in its “ProAV Spotlight Awards” program, and was declared, by popular vote, a winner in the first annual “People’s Choice Awards” which was sponsored by InfoComm International and NewBay Media. The company won in the Best Corporate Solution category in each of the three separate award programs.
“It feels incredible to have our hard work recognized by three of the ProAV industry’s most prestigious award programs,” said Mark Mulford, Co-President at Advanced. “When GE selected us to design and install AV solutions in their new center, they gave us the opportunity to show the AV industry what makes us stand apart from other AV & IT integrators, and our work in the new facility speaks for itself. We’re excited to be honored with these awards, as we continue to integrate the best AV & IT solutions in Canada’s commercial environments.”
The installation at GE’s Grid IQ™ Global Innovation Center encompassed 55 rooms including the Customer Experience Center, executive offices, boardrooms, training rooms, and meeting rooms, all of which utilize state-of-the-art AV equipment including video conferencing systems, interactive touchscreens, in-ceiling speakers and microphones.
