Tim, you’re looking an awful lot more Canadian this week… Even so, we are committed to bringing you the latest news from the commercial side of the AV industry on a weekly basis. And here to help us discuss these topics is Founder of The Loop Lab Chris Hope, host of our own AVSocial Dawn Meade, and Marketing Manager for USAV Brittany Board.

We start with a topic that was just going to be a nod, but turned into an interesting discussion all its own. LG’s OLED technology was honored at the Annual Technology & Engineering Emmy Awards. This comes from their innovations with OLED TVs in the production space. We discuss what this means for our industry and how we can point to it as a sign of what this space is doing for companies.

Next we have a pair of acquisitions, first Pearl Technology acquiring Peoria-based IAS Technology, as well as Solotech in the stages to acquire Morris Light & Sound. After just talking about how we’ve “made it” with the Emmy nod, is this another sign that the industry is growing? Looking at how this will affect our industry and the involved companies moving forward.

Lastly, we look at a extraordinary meeting room recently installed at the Prince Mohammed Bin Fahd University in Al Khobar, Saudi Arabia. It is something else in terms of scale and technology being put into the space. We look at the room and if this could be what the future of meeting and boardrooms look like, and what that means for our industry.
