Consumer Electronics Association Announce Software for Architectural Drawing Symbols for Use in Microsoft Visio, AutoCAD and More

The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) R10 Residential Systems committee announced the availability of software versions of the symbols defined in the publication of ANSI Standard J-STD-710 Audio, Video and Control Architectural Drawing Symbols announced in April. This new standard defines a common set of floor plan icons that represents all facets of pre-wire and installation of electronic systems, products and devices in residential and commercial environments. Standardized symbols on plans allow architects, designers, builders, and electronic systems contractors (ESC) to share information, making home technology planning and design easy. Layouts designed with Symbols help minimize miscommunication among all parties involved by easily identifying the locations of installed technologies, whether they are equipment, devices, sensors, control interfaces or cabling. Software file formats for symbols are in black and white and include: .dwg for use with AutoCAD and compatible software, .vss stencils for use with Microsoft Visio, .png graphics with transparent backgrounds, .jpg standard graphic format with white backgrounds, .gif graphics with transparent backgrounds and .tif graphics for printing, non-transparent .
