It May be time to take a look at the latest news coming out of the commercial side of the AV industry. Joining us this week is Director of System Solutions for QSC Cory Schaeffer, Executive Editor for Commercial Integrator Craig MacCormack and Advisist himself Bradford Benn.

What can manufacturers do to make sure their clients are aware of the situation and can work around things? Talking about the impact of this shortage on our industry.
