Headquartered near Washington, D.C., United States, AVIXA standards are in use in over 70 countries, with approximately 4,300 members spread across the world. The leading organization in its field, AVIXA promotes the AV industry with a wide array of events, publications and educational initiatives. Standards from AVIXA are available both individually, directly through the ANSI webstore, and as part of a Standards Subscription. If you or your organization are interested in easy, managed, online access to standards that can be shared, a Standards Subscription may be what you need - please contact us at: [email protected] or 1-212-642-4980 or Request Proposal Price.

Below are AVIXA's best-selling standards. To find additional standards, please use the search bar above.


Audiovisual Systems Performance Verification

This Standard provides a framework and supporting processes for selecting metrics, determining elements, and reporting procedures for an audiovisual system that needs to be verified.


Standard Guide for Audiovisual Systems Design and Coordination Processes

A successful professional audiovisual system installation depends on the clear definition and coordination of processes, resources, and responsibilities of the design and installation project teams. A properly documented audiovisual system provides the information necessary to understand and implement the system goals and project requirements in a logical and efficient manner. The documentation should complement and coordinate related architectural, engineering, and construction documentation. This standard outlines a consistent set of the standard tasks, responsibilities, and deliverables required for professional audiovisual systems design and construction

AVIXA A102.01:2017

Audio Coverage Uniformity in Listener Areas

This Standard provides a procedure to measure and classify the uniformity of early arriving sound from a sound system across a listener area.


Projected Image System Contrast Ratio

This Standard defines projected image system contrast ratio and its measurement. It applies to both permanently installed systems and live events. It applies to front and rear projection. This Standard defines four contrast ratios based on content viewing requirements. System contrast ratio refers to the image as it is presented to viewers in a space with ambient light. Practical metrics to measure and validate the defined contrast ratios are provided.

AVIXA V202.01:2016

Display Image Size for 2D Content in Audiovisual Systems

This Standard determines required display image size and relative viewing positions according to two defined viewing needs: Basic Decision Making and Analytical Decision Making. The Standard can be used to design a new space or to assess/modify an existing space, from either drawings or the space itself. It applies to both permanently installed systems and temporary systems. The Standard applies to the overall system and not the performance or efficiency of any component.


Audiovisual Best Practices:The Design and Integration Process for the AV and Construction Industries

AV Best Practices presents the answers to AV design process questions, from the initial planning or program stages through the design, construction, system commissioning and finally, client training. A wealth of practical resources such as checklists, contract relationship charts, project scheduling decision factors, sample agreements.

ANSI/INFOCOMM 4-2012 Handbook

AV Systems Energy Management Handbook

This handbook is intended for any organization or individual interested in applying ANSI/INFOCOMM 4-2012 Audiovisual Systems Energy Management. It is specifically designed to assist audiovisual professionals in the assessment of energy management needs, the design of an energy management system, and the implementation of such a system.


Audiovisual Systems Project Documentation Sample

"InfoComm Internationalr is pleased to offer a collection of audiovisual systems drawings and documents. The publication is a coordinated example of the unique documentation required for AV systems showing how the audiovisual systems documents relate to documentation from allied professions. In addition, the collection illustrates elements of the StandardGuide for Audiovisual Systems Design and Coordination Processes."

ICStan-ACU Design Guidelines

Design Guidelines for ACU

These design guidelines describe the processes involved in designing loudspeaker systems to the requirements outlined in ANSI/INFOCOMM 1M-2009, Audio Coverage Uniformity (ACU) in Enclosed Listener Areas. It is intended to help designers understand the complexities of:1. Identifying the intended use of the space and system(s)2. Identifying the listener area(s)3. Loudspeaker selection, placement, and aiming4. Modeling the design 5. Documenting the listening area and measurement locations. The book should be used in conjunction with the standard, ANSI/INFOCOMM 1M-2009, Audio Coverage Uniformity in Enclosed Listener Areas.


As the voice of the U.S. standards and conformity assessment system, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) empowers its members and constituents to strengthen the U.S. marketplace position in the global economy while helping to assure the safety and health of consumers and the protection of the environment.
