AV-iQ Expands Into Video & Broadcast Markets with Vdeo-iQ

NEW YORK, NY (April 18, 2016) — AV-iQ, the industry’s most comprehensive pro-AV resource, is introducing Vdeo-iQ — an expansion of the service that brings the power of AV-iQ’s extensive equipment catalogs to the video, broadcast, and entertainment industries. The new service will launch in June, and a preview of the site can be found at preview.vdeo-iq.com. AV-iQ and Vdeo-iQ are both produced by NewBay.

Members of Vdeo-iQ will be able to take advantage of the product data comparison tool, check out the case studies library for cutting-edge video and broadcast inspiration, and locate nearby service. Manufacturers and service providers will be able to reach industry buyers at a crucial time — as they are spec’ing out a project or researching the latest gear prior to purchase.

“I am very excited for video and broadcast professionals to experience Vdeo-iQ,” states Mark Loftus, Operations Manager, AV-iQ. “Our detailed database of product information creates a space for everyone in the business to thrive by saving time and money through a single site that communicates the latest in broadcast and video product information. It is the ideal destination for manufacturers to meet and inform buyers.”

By creating a site that has hundreds of manufacturer’s products and marketing material on it, a user can come to one website to find everything he or she needs. A search on Vdeo-iQ will quickly provide all of the relevant information in one location. A user can search the list of companies, find results using a keyword search term, or browse through the comprehensive list of broadcast and video product categories.

With all the information at buyers’ fingertips, they can then choose products to view in a side-by-side comparison tool or place them into project lists. Free registered users of the site can have an account where they can save those projects and add to them later, share them with colleagues or clients, and set a customized list of preferences to make your research as efficient as possible.

Vdeo-IQ will market this vital resource to the industry by leveraging the knowledge and reach behind such NewBay brands as TV Technology, Digital Video, Broadcasting & Cable, and Multichannel News. These venerable brands will bring this product research tool to an audience of end users that operate at all levels of the industry.

“Product research is an important element in today’s marketplace,” states Carmel King, Executive Vice President, NewBay Video Group. “Having a single resource that presents product information for all of the key manufacturers in our space creates tremendous efficiency in the day to day task of making purchasing decisions.”
