Anyone any ideas on this abbreviation? It is one of a range of services offered by a documentation/printing/translation company. Others include desk top publishing, copy editing, text conversion etc.

Audiovisual


Explanation:
This is a common abbreviation used in the publishing and media industry. The acronym database below and many other sources will tell you the same.

The company is trying to advertise their multimedia capabilities, saying that they can produce audiovisual materials of sorts.

Cheerio,

Arbeitsvorbereitung; Production Planning


Explanation:
Julie, sometimes "AV" stands for Arbeitsvorbereitung, which I usually translate as Production Planning, at least in industrial contexts. I don't think Production Planning would work here, but maybe this will spark some other ideas.
