Divergence - What No One In AV is talking about
We hear a lot about AV/IT convergence - using IT technologies in AV systems is nothing new. But what about your skills?

IT systems are based on open standards and modern software development.  

To remain up to date and provide custom solutions with the latest technologies, AV professionals need to upgrade their skills beyond manufacturer training.

Learn AV Programming is here to teach you how to use advanced software, networking and the cloud to converge your skills with reality.
The New AV/IT Skill Set
  • Modern Programming Tools: The move to Software Defined Systems requires modern software development techniques and tools.
  •  Cloud Applications: Stop ignoring what the power of the cloud can do for your business. Better Support, Data Insights and new Business Models are waiting for you.
  •  Networking: AV/IT Engineers and Technicians need a laptop with tools like Wireshark installed - and you need to know how to use them.

About Me
My name is Patrick Murray. I got started in AV in 1995 building racks and pulling cables in and around New York City. After moving to Germany in 2005 I founded Controlhaus, an independent AMX and Crestron programming company.

With the release of the iPhone, Controlhaus began expanding its services to include mobile, desktop and cloud application development. 

Seeing a need to help fellow AV programmers upgrade their skills with modern programming, was launched in 2016. Over one hundred students have learned new ways to program AV and Smart Home Systems from the online courses offered on

As technology grows into every aspect of our lives, the comfort level and expectations of integrated systems has also grown. At the same time, the tolerance for complicated, inflexible and expensive solutions has waned.

My goal is to provide tools and training that make it easy for AV Pros to upgrade their skills and have a voice in shaping the future of AV.
