Education Is The Key
It is getting so cold that even Tim’s video is freezing. And that doesn’t make sense! But what does make sense to us is the latest news coming out of the commercial side of the AV industry, which is why we bring it to you and discuss it with some amazing people in the business. Such people like Global Service Manager for Verrex Charmaine Torruella, brand new from RoomReady Vice President of Technology Dave Hatz and for Matrox Executive Vice President of Research & Intelligence David Chiappini.
Premier Mounts is in the final agreements to be acquired by Gamber-Johnson. Gamber-Johnson is a supplier of mounting systems for mobility applications such as forklifts, semi-trucks and more. What will this mean for our industry? What does it mean when two companies from different sectors join forces like this and bring forth their strengths? Looking at where this might take us in the coming months.
Cybersecurity is a topic that has generated much discussion in many shows across AVNation, including this one. But now the FBI is warning organizations about security measures with remote access after a Florida water system was allegedly hacked earlier this month. Especially now that most people aren’t in the office, remote access is everywhere. So how can we keep this secure for our clients and even for our own businesses? Why you need to have these conversations with clients and instill the importance of this threat.
Finally we discuss AV and waste, which according to the Global E-waste Statistics Partnership is being caused by old equipment. So what can the industry do to push back against waste? Looking at how AV can bring this issue to light and how old equipment can be repurposed rather than tossed aside.
