AVWeek 416: Legally Sound

The back and forth between Shure and ClearOne

As AVNation reported this week, a U.S. Federal judge issued a temporary injuction against Shure. The manufacturer is prevented from selling or marketing their popular MXA910 ceiling microphone. Our panel discusses what this means for the industry. We get perspective about how patent disputes are generally handled. Boaz Shani provides a non-US vision of the effects of U.S. patent cases on the rest of the globe.

Josh Srago wrote a piece for Commercial Inegrator about the State of AV over IP. In the article, Mr. Srago says comparing AV over IP products is like correlating apples to oranges. Our panel discuses this match up, the state of the AVoIP market, and getting the IT department onboard with video on the network.

AVWeek started in late July 2011. It is hosted by Tim Albright. Albright started his professional life as a broadcaster in St. Louis. In the audiovisual industry, Tim has worked as a technology manager for Lewis and Clark Community College, control programmer, design consultant, and design engineer. 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.

Albright also taught radio and audio production for over 14 years, including introducing podcast production to his students in 2006. He resides on the Illinois side of the St. Louis, Missouri area where he and his wife raise their two children. AVWeek is based, in part, on the TWiT (This Week in Tech) model of podcasts where the host reads a news story and panelists provide their insight, analysis, and opinion on the subject matter.
