If You Build It, They Will Come
Tim is on location at Legrand’s Roadshow in Vegas, which surely won’t cause any problems for our editor. Please send help. What we will send back is the latest stories related to the commercial side of the AV industry. Joining us this week is Vice President of Sales and Operations at Nationwide AV Brock McGinnis and Senior Manager of End-User Business Development Sales for Harman Haley Tuohy.
Roland Hemming writes for AV Magazine talking about what integrators can do in the midst of this supply chain shortage. You are most likely aware if you’re in any technical field, but the supply chain shortage rages on in 2022. What started in 2021 is expected to impact all manners of business in some reports as far as 2025. But we still have businesses to run, projects to complete and customers that need product.
The 8K Association has published a new performance specification for their certification guidelines. This includes decoding requirements for promoting broader 8K streaming, new metrics on image quality and the addition of game mode. Certifications like this ensure that products that are forward-facing to the customers are to a certain standard. We discuss the importance of standards like this and what 8K means for verticals like AV over IP.
Lastly, you might have noticed by the video (or that we told you at the top of the page) Tim is not in the regular studio. He is in Las Vegas, checking out Legrand’s Roadshow event. It seems like in the last two years, when the larger trade shows get pushed back or cancelled outright, the conversation goes to regional events and their merits. Today we sit at one of those regional events and essentially have the same conversation with the knowledge of regional events that have transpired such as Crestron NEXT, Almo’s E4 and Legrand’s Roadshow. What do regional shows do for the AV industry, and does it add or take away from those larger shows like ISE or InfoComm?
