Room’s Gotta Work
In the past few years, the viability of control systems have greatly expanded. Instead of just remotely controlling soltuions and providing functionality for users, we can now monitor systems, collect data and detect problems in the background. On this month’s State of Control, we discuss effective ways to introduce automated testing to provide value to technology managers and clients, the requirements to make these automated tests, and the potential of predictive maintenance solutions.
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. Greenblatt is heavily involved with AVIXA, serving on multiple committees and helping write and facilitate several white papers.
