LONG ISLAND, N.Y. -- CMS Innovative Consultants announced its participation in a three-year, $1.2 million industry awareness campaign designed to promote the contributions of audiovisual solutions providers who bring sights and sounds to millions of people around the world through sound systems, digital signage, video- and webconferencing, staged events and interactive exhibits, among many other AV applications.

The campaign, branded “AVolution,” showcases the AV industry as “evolved” and integral to the success of any sophisticated communications project. Produced by the International Communications Industries Association, Inc.® (ICIA®) through its foundation, the campaign includes firms that commit to honoring 10 standards of excellence:

  • Complete AV solutions
  • Informed advice to clients, architects and engineers
  • Best value — cost-effective AV systems design
  • Ongoing technical support
  • Reliable and compatible AV systems design
  • AV systems scaleability
  • Clear definition of all related scope of work
  • Proper project documentation
  • Expert technical staff
  • Training and ongoing client support

CMS has always embraced these standards, thereby exemplifying the model of the AVolution campaign — placing the customer first while offering quality AV design and consulting services.

"CMS is proud to be a charter member of AVolution," said Christopher Maione, principal of CMS. "We want to support the campaign by creating a greater awareness of the role of AV professionals who work with clients, architects and engineers in the design of sophisticated audiovisual facilities. The continuing goal of CMS is to apply the most advanced technological expertise and creativity in a cost-effective manner to every project."
