Whether your internet is going through a blizzard uphill both ways, we are here to give you the latest news in the commercial side of the AV industry. Joining us this week is Event Technology Coordinator at Otterbein Univsersity Willie Franklin, Host of ResiWeek & owner of Omega Audio Video Matt Scott and host of AVSocial Dawn Meade.
CES 2022 was last week, and while it was in person some considered it a “Zombie” show. But our very own Tim Albright was there in his first physical outing to the show no less, so we have some firsthand experience on the floor. Since CES is also the show for innovation in the tech sphere, we go around the table and discuss the biggest things that we found in the news that came out of the show. And of course, it wouldn’t be a Matt Scott appearance if he didn’t have to say something that would warrant sending hate mail.

They are now able to distribute video to numerous screens throughout the entire venue. So, what other places could AV over IP provide a lasting value compared to other solutions? Looking at what verticals would be worth looking into for AV over IP.
Finally, as of January 4, BlackBerry ended support for their devices. Although it’s coincidental we have our resident Canadian on the show as we discuss a Canadian company ending their services, we instead use this as a jumping off point to discuss end of life in products. Even in technology time makes a fool out of all of us, but there are some technology still in use that are just hard to work around. What’s that one thing that needs to go?
