The first member of the board will be AVS' Chief Technology Officer, David Raden. "I will bring a technical perspective to the board, based on industry trends, financial growth goals and expansion into emerging markets," says Raden. "Working with AVS management and the rest of the board to help develop financial and business strategies for the future will be exciting, as there is a tremendous opportunity for growth in this industry."

Raden has recently decided to leave AVS and start his own company, where he will be pursuing various interests. In addition to being on the board, he will continue to work as a consultant for AVS on a part-time basis. Raden, who has been with AVS for more than 12 years, has played a critical role in overseeing AVS' resources, by providing technical applications assistance to the company's sales, engineering, integration and installation departments.
With more than 25 years of industry experience in systems design, engineering and integration, Raden has facilitated the deployment of custom solutions for numerous federal, civilian, defense, and intelligence agencies as well as commercial customers. Some of his recognized accomplishments with AVS include project engineering support for the Naval Command Center (NCC) -- pre- and post-9/11 -- and the Air Force Operations Group (AFOG), both as part of the Pentagon Renovation Program. He also provided command center support for the Office of the President of the United States and design and implementation support for a corporate conference center and auditorium systems for Booz Allen Hamilton.
"The opportunity to continue working with AVS, while also being able to pursue my own interests, is an ideal situation for me," says Raden.

Resolution has a myth attached to it, according to Dave Raden, CTO of Audio Video Systems, an AV integrator based in Chantilly, VA, that concentrates in the federal space. "A lot of people think the more resolution they have the better," he explained.

"We have very low turnover here," said David Raden, chief technology officer for AVS, who holds the honor of being the third employee hired.

...
The AVS process involves, as Raden explained, getting to know the customer and what they need, not just what they think they want, then nurturing that relationship from the design process through the building stage, and then following through with maintenance for the lifetime of the system.Everything from concept, design, integration, test, installation, and life cycle maintenance is done in-house.This focus on being able to conceive, design, and build the entire project from the walls-in puts AVS in a unique position in the industry.
"We really take the beginning-to-end process seriously," said Raden.
...
"We've identified the need for access to places you can't go without clearances," explained Raden, "so we've pursued people with high-level security clearances when building up the staff."
Since the terrorist attacks of September 11, there's been heightened focus on the being able to communicate, respond, and be ready for new disasters, leading to a greater amount of involvement for AVS in places such as the National Military Command Center's Continuity of Operations site, U.S Department of Homeland Security, CIA, FBI, and the White House."This heightened focus on communicating and sharing information has driven the government to invest more heavily in their infrastructure and their capabilities that had not been improved for years," said Raden.
While working to enhance and streamline command centers and network operations for the military, AVS, he continued, creates integrated AV systems solutions that allow people to easily collaborate and make decisions.
...
"It's beneficial because you don't need to double up on the equipment you're using," said Raden.
Beyond the importance of gaining new clients, AVS emphasizes customer satisfaction by following through and having a contact available after the completion of a project.With a dedicated project management staff, clients can be assured that their projects are on track, on budget, and that they've got a contact who is concerned solely with their needs, and not working on sales and marketing at the same time."Our strength is our people.We take the project management portion of the business very seriously, as a way to make any job we do successful," Raden concluded.


Once just a way to cut costs videoconferencing expands to continuity planning and telework

"The room and the [audio/video] system that the system connects to are just as important as the videoconferencing hardware itself," said David Raden, chief technology officer of Audio Video Systems Inc., a Washington-area integrator.

Raden said that while most codecs come with echo cancellation and noise reduction, and can handle conferences of two or three people, rooms for larger conferences may have to be fitted with distributed microphones and sound-absorption panels.
The most sophisticated rooms even have sound mixers like those used in recording studios, he said.Anyone seeking to construct or convert a room for videoconferencing should also look for quiet air handling, and even dimmable lights that can also be angled for proper lighting of faces.
As for network bandwidth, Raden said standard 100Base-T Ethernet is fine, thanks in large part to recent advances in video compression, including the widespread availability of the H.264 standard.
