You might be in the same boat as many of us where time has become something of an anomaly, days and weeks are shuffling by in no particular order. Let us help you find some semblance of normal structure by bringing you the latest news from the commercial side of the AV industry. Joining us today is Director of System Solutions for QSC Cory Schaeffer, Senior Account Executive for Diversified Joe Dunbar, and Design Engineer at Verrex Akintayo Adewole as we see what’s going on in AV.
Zoom has launched hardware as a service for their video conferencing software,
partnering with DTEN, Neat, Poly and Yealink on the hardware side. Zoom Rooms aren’t necessarily a new thing, nor is the concept of hardware as a service, but as Zoom has grown exponentially even outside of the current pandemic, how will it stack against the competition? Do we need an entirely separate system for Zoom and video conferencing solutions?
As the pandemic stays and people are stuck working from home, video engagement has become the way to communicate with your team. However, it has also slowly eroded us as we make it through this situation. Video conferencing fatigue is real. Microsoft has been aware of this, looking to add ways to fight this fatigue in Teams.
Is there something that integrators can do to aid in the fight?
AVIXA has released their report on the industry they call the Industry Outlook and Trends Analysis, or IOTA.
There are quite a few notes made worth looking at, but the big one is that the industry will expect to lose $20 billion in revenue. When are things expected to come back? Discussing the report and what integrators should be preparing for.
