Clark Wire & Cable is a leading supplier of cable products and solutions covering a wide range applications for the delivery of audio/visual content. Clark will bring solutions for HD and 3G applications to the higher education segment of the A/V systems integration market with emphasis on solving problems unique to the higher education market.
Institutes of higher education are often the backbone of emerging technologies. From IT technologies to advancements in audio visual systems, systems integrators and suppliers must have the technical knowledge in a number of areas to support and educate institutions on upandcoming trends.
For example, IT professionals historically handled network infrastructures and computer network systems. Advancements in technology such as video transmission over network cables means that these same professionals must have a working knowledge of audio and video integration as it pertains to network systems.
Why Institutes of Higher Education?
According to the InfoComm International® Economic Snapshot Survey, October 2012 1, the InfoComm demand index 2 forecasts a six month increase in demand for AV products in the higher education segment of 1.8% (65.2% to 67%).
Companies like Clark Wire & Cable are perfectly suited to jump into the mix and start providing this growing segment with state-of-the-art products and solutions to problems that are unique to the higher education market segment.
For the past 20 years Clark has formed a close bond with a number of universities. Having institutions that are comfortable with a supplier creates a bond between the integrator and the university that may have not been there before.
The bottom line is the higher education market segment relies on long standing, reliable companies who can keep up with emerging technologies. Having the combination of a supplier and integrator that meets those requirements is essential in this segment.
