The 2006 Education Buyers Guide to Audio-Visual Systems & Solutions.

The 2006 Education Buyers Guide to Audio-Visual Systems & Solutions has been developed as a service to the purchasers of AV products and systems for education institutions. The guide is brought to you by District Administration magazine and University Business magazine, the leading publications for K12 and Higher Education, respectively, and co-producers of the annual EduComm Conference at InfoComm.

The 2006 Education Buyers Guide to Audio-Visual Systems & Solutions is also available on our websites in PDF format for downloading and distribution to your colleagues. The online version is a 'living document' that will be updated with additional information and listings throughout the year.

In addition, interactive versions of the guide can also be accessed online through the Digital Editions of District Administration and University Business magazines. Simply go to www.DistrictAdministration.com or www. UniversityBusiness.com and click on the animated magazine image.
