Thankful For AV
By now you might still be recovering from the aftermath of Thanksgiving, or just waking up from your food induced coma. We’re here to bring you the latest news from the commercial side of the AV industry. And with us to do so is Design Engineer for Verrex Akintayo Adewole, Technologist Victoria Barela and Associate Director of Global Marketing for Shure Peter Herr.
It was announced last week that Shure had acquired Midas Technology, also known as Stem Audio. Their specialization is in many different setups of microphones as well as loudspeakers and hubs. These are all solutions well in Shure’s wheelhouse. But since we have someone here from Shure, we might as well dig right into it. We discuss what this acquisition means for Shure, why it made a good fit, and what this means moving forward.
The online event production marketplace Prozaar has gone live, offering work for events in both the virtual and physical space. Sites with online postings such as this isn’t entirely new, but it has yet to be this specific to the live event space. And with live events being hit as hard as they have been in 2020, it is something worth looking at. Is there other places that this service could grow out to? Are there potential conflicts with unions and other outside interference?
Since we are recording this right before the Thanksgiving holiday break, we take a step back and look at the things we are thankful for in this year. It’s been a rough road, and a very peculiar year to say the least. But even in the face of everything going on it has shown some very innovative technology, and given AV a strong foothold in the market through video conferencing and more. We go around the proverbial dinner table and ask our guests what they are thankful for this year.
