English translation:audit or inventory
Explanation:
If the audit is of the catalog of works in the context of a sale or purchase, I would say inventory.

Would the rest of the document give you any more info on what this company actually does?

If not, an "audit audiovisuel" is more like a critical review to identify bias or misrepresentation, in which case audit in English might work.
