Comprehensive Sustainability through Manufacturing: A Look at US Manufacturing of AV Products

Environmental responsibility is a whole system process that coordinates design, sourcing, implementation, use, end of life management, supply chain management, packaging, shipping and fair labor.  Environmental responsibility is an architect of comprehensive sustainability founded on corporate social responsibility and future-focused commitments.

To delve deeper into comprehensive sustainability at work in the audiovisual industry, Project Green AV is starting closest to home with a look at US manufacturing of AV products.  As we continue our research and commitment to industry-wide global environmental responsibility, we look forward to featuring advancements in responsible production and distribution throughout the Americas, in Europe, Australia and Asia.

From the local point of view, manufacturing products in the US for distribution to the US and the Americas minimizes carbon impact, increases efficiency and reduces cost. But US manufacturing practices and standards provide more comprehensive positive environmental impact than just carbon reduction.

 The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) publishes The Facts About Modern Manufacturing that outlines advancements in US manufacturing, including the environmentally responsible features of domestic production.  In the eighth edition of the report, NIST states that “U.S. companies are among the global leaders in developing the technical innovations that can enable countries to become more energy efficient while also achieving the economic growth so essential to improving the living standards of their citizens.”  Further, the report explains that “continued technical innovation by U.S. manufacturers will be one of the keys for a successful global response to the problem of climate change.”

Mitsubishi Projector Lamp Replacement Instructions

Mitsubishi designed projectors offers uniqueness in their functionality and the Projector Lamp used for Illumination is considered as a heart of their design. There are various series of Projectors available in market ranging from EST, ST, 200, 500, 700, 3000, 7000 and 8000 which use Mitsubishi Projector Lamps as Light source

This Lamp is a consumable item, so when you feel that the Lamp is not working properly or its illumination is decreasing day by day then you must look for solution for Replacement of Projector Lamps. You must make sure to replace the used Lamp with the new one which is sold separately by Mitsubishi for a particular Projector.

We would advise certain instructions which would help you Replace Mitsubishi Projector Lamp in convenient way. It is advised to replace Mitsubishi Projector Lamp after using it continuously for 5000hrs while Lamp is at Low Mode at the time of Installation or 3000hrs if kept at standard mode.

There different indications for Lamp Replacement. For example when the lamp has been used for approx.3750hrs, you will get a message of replacing lamp after every minute from the time you use the Lamp. In case, it exceeds 4750hrs; then message for Lamp replacement will be displayed after every 25 hrs. In worst case, when the Lamp is used for more than 5000hrs, then your projector will shut down automatically for further use .You should avoid this situation because it may cause your Lamp to explode.

Spotlight on Lockheed Martin: Bringing New Life to AV Equipment

Da Lite logo

Joseph Julian, Multimedia Products Analyst at Lockheed Martin, saves the brackets from the walls.  He saves every piece of AV equipment and ancillary equipment from installations, rooms and offices in an "AV graveyard" and manages them through a complex database that guarantees none of Lockheed Martin's equipment- whatever size- will end up in landfills.

For Julian, who manages the database that links existing equipment to new projects and “dispositioned” equipment to AV electronics recycling, environmental responsibility is a key value.  Since the efforts began, nearly 100,000 pieces of equipment and ancillary equipment have been saved.  Julian started keeping records of his group’s sustainability efforts in January 2008 and the amount of responsibly recycled AV equipment continues to grow. 

When Lockheed Martin took over a new building in Bethesda, Maryland and underwent a renovation, Julian managed the project and made reuse and recycling a priority.  The building’s previous tenant had left sound masking and other AV equipment throughout the building.  Instead of tossing it, Julian added it to his collection and readied it for future re-use, recovering forty-eight Atlas M980 sound-masking speakers and using them in a new construction project.

AMX Enova DVX-3150 – An All-In-One with All the Right Stuff

Equipment that fulfills multiple functions not only saves space but is generally more cost effective. Specifically for AV, reducing the number of devices in a typical rack offers a variety of benefits that translate into financial, material and energy savings as well as responsible procurement.  This is especially true for the new Enova DVX-3150 from AMX.

The Enova DVX-3150 is an all-in-one switcher which replaces up to 10 different rack components. There is an obvious financial benefit to removing that many devices from a typical rack. However, beyond the financial benefit is the energy savings (think: even MORE financial benefits).   When active, the DVX consumes about 80% less energy than a standard rack configuration- that’s a mere 90 watts. With the amplifier, expect it to draw 95- 110 watts.  In standby, the DVX crushes both a competitive product and a standard rack by using only 10% of the energy- 30 watts.  The Enova DVX-3150 is a single device about the size of a desktop tower; the reduction in the amount of heat that it gives off, and therefore the amount of additional outside cooling required,  can also be calculated into the energy savings.  The DVX is a great option to help further your client’s green initiatives and offer a visible reduction in the electric bill.

LynTec Circuit Breaker Panels Offer Convenience & Energy Efficiencies

Green devices should take into account more than energy savings. Design, procurement, materials, assembly, social responsibility and shipping are all part of the overall environmental impact of a product.  AMX understands this and has designed a device that moves beyond efficiency. By replacing up to 10 components, the DVX reduces the amount of materials required to manufacture all those devices (being shipped from manufacturers around the world). It eliminates 9 devices worth of packaging and overall shipping carbon footprint, especially for our readers in North America; the DVX is designed in the US and manufactured in Mexico at a plant which has established environmentally responsible manufacturing practices.
