MULTIROOM AV

WITH ALL THE INROADS made over the past few
decades by integrators in terms of diversifying their
category mix, audio and video are still clearly the kings of the
custom installation industry. And with technology advancements
such as IP-based distribution, integrated control
solutions, and wireless transmission now making it so much
easier for CE pros to deploy multiroom solutions, the AV
distribution market continues to be healthy coming out of
the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to the 2021 CE Pro Multiroom AV Deep Dive
Study, nearly half of all projects (44%) over the past 12 months
include some form of multiroom signal distribution. According
to the most recent CE Pro State of the Industry Study,
the typical custom integration company did 55 residential
installations in 2020 and 11 commercial projects. So this new
multiroom AV data equates to about two multiroom residen40

tial installations per month, and one multizone commercial
installation every other month during the year.
Meanwhile, integrators predict a 4% increase in their multiroom
AV installation revenues in 2021 compared to 2020.
Overall, about 15% of custom installation companies expect
their multiroom AV business to be curtailed over the next year,
while nearly one-in-four (24%) expect business to be fl at. The
remaining 61% of integration fi rms are expecting business to increase.
That includes nearly 2% who expect business to double.
Only about 4% of integrators report that they did not
perform a single multiroom AV installation over the past 12
months. On the fl ip side, 8% of integrators report that every
single project they designed and installed over the past year
include some form of multizone audio/video.
According to the study, the typical multiroom AV system
installed has four zones of audio (with eight loudspeakers),
