scope, Purpose, and Application

This Standard defines requirements for labeling audiovisual system cabling in order to facilitate identification of each cable within an installed system. Planning for the use of this Standard should begin at the outset of the project and implementation shall be in conjunction with a fully-developed package of project documentation.

The audiovisual system cabling includes all ends of system cabling connected to all existing AV components or provided for future use (whether the cable is terminated or left unterminated) as defined in the project documentation. Typical use of the Standard applies to individual cables within the system. Any power cabling provided as part of the audiovisual system (e.g., within an equipment rack, desk, lectern) shall be labeled in accordance with this Standard. See Annex 1 for more information.

In the case of multi-core cables, multi-conductor cables, and cable harnesses, refer to the project documentation for labeling requirements for individual cables, cores, conductors, or harnesses.

This Standard can be used by all parties involved in the audiovisual system installation process including consultants, integrators, manufacturers, technology support staff, owners, and third-party verification agents to verify that audiovisual cabling in a system has been labeled and documented to enable ongoing support of the system.

This Standard also provides for improved ease-of-use and user experience through nomination of optional labeling requirements specific to cables with which users interact.
