Audience
This course is designed for sales professionals and managers to help them understand the dynamics of AV/IT convergence and how to respond to them. 

Prerequisites
Although this course may be taken as a standalone course, it is strongly recommended that students first complete Essentials of the AV Industry OnlineAV from A-Z for Sales Professionals Online or have a general CTS designation, followed by Audio-Video and Control System Networking sponsored by Crestron e-Control.

CTS Renewal Units
This course provides 16 renewal units (RUs) towards InfoComm certification renewal.

Course Description
Selling and Integrating Networked AV Systems is a two-day course focusing on the practical approach to selling, designing, and programming audiovisual presentation systems using IT infrastructure. Networking is playing a significant role in the infrastructure of today's presentation systems, and IT managers are quickly becoming one of the most influential decision makers in the purchase of audiovisual presentation systems. It is designed and delivered by Kayye Consulting, Inc. InfoComm International supports this course with other key pro-AV industry leaders (Biamp, Crestron, Da-Lite, Sanyo, and Sound & Communications magazine).

The key difference between this course and the Networking for the Commercial AV Professional course is that the Networking course has a hands-on portion providing the steps of designing and building a simple network and incorporating networking appliances from the AV industry. This course is much more sales and business oriented.
