What exactly is the NAVS and which areas are covered during the three-day seminar?

Course leader: Christian Eimann

In AV projects, which nowadays can involve several departments with different interests, competence and communication are essential.

The NAVS (Network Engineering in AV Systems) is a seminar on network engineering that was developed expressly for the needs of the AV industry.

There is often a lack of mutual understanding of what the other party needs. AV experts usually lack the knowledge to understand IT's way of thinking as well as the necessary understanding of the theory of communication in networks to gain acceptance and trust from IT.

On the other hand, IT departments are not familiar with many of the requirements for professional audio and video communication in networks. Last but not least, in addition to technical differences, language differences often present an obstacle to flawless project communication.

The NAVS imparts professional knowledge on how to correctly create AV networks, correct network errors and provides the necessary expertise to discuss the requirements of an AV network with IT experts on an equal footing.
