Control and automation makes the audiovisual world go ‘round. When commercial integrators and residential AV dealers talk about integration, the glue that makes it possible for various products to work together seamlessly is the control platform. Control programmers are typically one of the last AV pros to leave a job site. They are also one of the technical trades that interact with the clients.
Steve Greenblatt created and produces AVNation’s monthly look at the control and automation space. Greenblatt has been in the AV control and automation space for over 25 years. Steve has taught programming for a major manufacturer. Today he helms his own independent control and programming company, Control Concepts, out of New Jersey.
