Sony Electronics has aligned with strategic partners across the AV industry to offer compatible software and hardware solutions that bring additional power, creative freedom and enhanced compatibility to its lineup of professional displays. This growing partner ecosystem, which launched last year, includes many of the leading solutions providers focused on digital signage, conference collaboration and mounting.
“Sony’s display solutions, including our professional BRAVIA lineup and Crystal LED video wall are chosen by the community because of their superior image quality, reliability and flexibility,” said Theresa Alesso, President, Imaging Products & Solutions Americas, Sony Electronics. “Since we formally announced our AV Collaborative Alliances Program last year, the reception from partners and the community has been extremely positive. By combining our collective strengths with those of our collaborators, we’re committed to creating more compatibility and integration and providing more value for our users in a growing range of vertical markets – giving them yet another reason to seamlessly deploy our state-of-the-art displays.”
With a focus on interactivity, certification and compatibility, the program supports businesses across the AV spectrum, integrating with software solutions and hardware that address digital signage, IPTV, device management, computer vision and AI, AV control systems and unified communications.
