From today the Professional Audio Video market has its norm

On Thursday 5 November, the UNI 11799: 2020 standard was published relating to the integration services of audio, video and control systems. An important milestone for SIEC and for the Professional Audio Video sector.

Milan, November 9, 2020 – After many years of work and multiple discussion tables, on 5 November the long-awaited technical standard UNI 11799: 2020 was published relating to audio, video and control systems integration services – design, installation, configuration, adjustment, programming and technical verification requirements.

With this important milestone, SIEC, the Association that represents AVC System Integrators in Italy, has created the conditions for sector operators to finally see their professionalism recognized, with a view to increasingly qualifying the market in which we operate.

It is thanks to the commitment of the Association, in fact, that the operators of the AVC world can now count on a specific certification, the first to regulate this sector at national level.

Christian Pieretto, President of SIEC, states: We could say that we have “written history”, but instead it is only the beginning of a new path in a market that may not be the same from today.
Now all that remains is to spread it, share it and transmit the value that all this will represent for the market and for customers. “

The audio video sector is characterized by a very rapid development and often there is a lack of a structured and organized approach that can guarantee an effective integration of AVC systems. Furthermore, for the correct application of technologies, strong skills, adequate design and technical resources and constant updating are required to keep pace with the rapid evolution of technologies.

All users who intend to equip themselves with an AVC system with specific performance and contractual guarantees, can contact organizations in possession of the 11799 service certification, aware of establishing a contractual relationship capable of expressing and managing their needs, with the support of qualified suppliers.

A sincere thanks to UNI and to all the partners who have shared this long journey.

SIEC does not stop: on the UNI table there is now another ambitious project, the recognition of the professional figure of the AVC supplement, an indispensable step to increase the recognition of supplements and qualify this profession.
