May the Fourth be with you! We are here in our brand new studio, but the content we provide stays the same. Today we’re looking at the latest news for the commercial side of the AV industry, and discussing it with some leading experts in the field.
Our first story covers the expansion of touchless sensor solutions amidst the current pandemic of COVID-19 as covered by AV Magazine. NEC, Fujitec, Toshiba Tec and more are developing interfaces with touchless technology in mind. Is merely a gut reaction technology breakthrough because of the pandemic, or has this technology always been in our grasp? Is this is the next step for control interface? Looking at where this technology could go in the market.
Next, after a terribly failed segue by Bradford, we discuss L-Acoustics and Electro Acoustics’ part in bringing Texas Christian University’s Amon G. Carter Stadium to an exceptional standard. This $118M expansion features a new video board, the K1/Kara loudspeaker system and more. We discuss The scope of arenas and stadiums in the time following people returning to games and live events, and how it could change the way designers approach these buildings.

AVWeek started in late July 2011. It is hosted by Tim Albright. Albright started his professional life as a broadcaster in St. Louis.

The first episode of AVWeek, episode 0000, was recorded via Skype with two AV pros Albright met via Twitter and a long-time friend. Since that first episode in July 2011, AVWeek has produced a weekly program missing only one week in the first year.
