STEP: Insight from Allen Weidman

On November 2, at the first ever GovComm, InfoComm announced the launch of the STEP Foundation website.  Project Green AV sat down with Allen Weidman, InfoComm International Sustainability Officer and Executive Director of the STEP Foundation, to offer the industry more clarity about what this program is and what it means for our AV industry.  Allen shared his insights on STEP, its evolution and plans for the future as an environmentally responsible rating system for the AV industry.

STEP, once an InfoComm initiative, has grown into the STEP Foundation.  The Foundation is a collaboration among InfoComm, BICSI, CompTIA, and TIA.  Together, the four trade associations "work in unison to focus on value for all members" in service to environmental responsibility and opportunities.  The STEP Foundation is comprised of two representatives from each member association, with Scott Walker and Ray Kemp representing InfoComm.

Energy management figures into STEP prominently.  Thirty percent of STEP is dedicated to Smart Building Technologies (SBT).  SBT is intrinsic to Green AV because it “humanizes the building” beyond materials used.

Product Green: Arrive Corp's RoomPoint TM

Following its international success, Arrive Corp is entering the US market with a series of products that bring high functionality and environmental responsibility to the AV space.  Rakesh Ranchod, Product Manager, brought the company to InfoComm Vegas this year.  He offered a sneak preview of products due out by year end that were "extremely well received."

Arrive's new products are part of its NX.GEN.AV, a combined hardware-software-service model that consolidates on-premise applications and flexible online services for scheduling, collaboration, resource management, and signal management.

RoomPoint Product Green Project Green AV

NX.GEN.AV products are designed with space reduction, energy reduction, and cradle to grave lifecycle responsibility in mind.

Arrive's RoomPointTM, a NX.GEN.AV product, is an "Intelligent Media Processor" for use in classrooms, conference rooms, boardrooms and theaters where users need high functionality and seek cost savings and environmentally responsible solutions to energy consumption.

RoomPointTM is made of 100% recycled unicast aluminum and "shrinks the AV rack" into an eye appealing, small form factor unit that connects over the existing IT infrastructure to manage AV in education, corporate and other environments.  Its power management capabilities deliver zero-watt draw upon shutdown, enabling organizations to reduce AV equipment energy consumption.

Its compact, fan-less design lends itself to natural aeration and heat dissipation.  In addition to Green AV functionality, RoomPointTM boasts a versatile blade-based design that allows customers to upgrade and scale cost-effectively as switching requirements evolve.

LynTec Circuit Breaker Panels Offer Convenience & Energy Efficiencies

Every once in a while an opportunity appears in the AV industry which didn’t exist a year ago – and we look around and say “that product now meets this new need.” This is exactly the case with regards to the LynTec RPC Series Circuit Breaker Panels. Their controllable, networkable motorized circuit breaker panel meets many of the electrical power monitoring & control required for an energy efficient installation. The LynTec RPC circuit breaker panels include web enabled control and monitoring making remote access easy.
Take for example any medium – large scale AV system where multiple AC circuits are required.
Typical AV dedicated circuits would include:

  • Projection Screens
  • Video Projectors (or large Flat Panels)
  • AV Equipment Cabinets (multiple circuits)
  • AV Consoles
  • Control Rooms

Now it’s simple - specify (or tell the M/E/P Consultant you need) a LynTec RPC panel and you want all AV circuits to originate at this dedicated panel.
This makes managing all AV power circuits simple. It also provides a dedicated circuit breaker panel, located within the AV control room (so the breakers are readily accessible) which can be isolated from other building circuits to avoid noise and interference from motors, compressors etc.
