Going To School For Technology
What you might not normally realize is that a long weekend makes for a short week, throwing all the regularly scheduled parts of said week into disarray. Thankfully we still endeavor to bring some consistency by looking at the commercial side of the AV industry. Joining us this week is Group Head of Technology for the Midwich Group Jenny Hicks and NerdyGirlAV herself Jennifer Steinhardt.
For some, summer is the closing of a chapter in the education space. But for faculty and tech mangers in higher education, it is just the start of the next semester. But we are currently at an intersection in the education sector as remote learning becomes less of a requirement and classes come back to physical spaces. There was a lot of impromptu innovation for conferencing and AV due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but what will become of this tech as we slip back into the old ways? We discuss this and further evolve into a discussion about the impact of remote learning for campuses and how they can incentivize students to join them in the physical space.
DVEholographics has announced a hologram experience for conferencing technology that requires no dedicated produciton studio or projector to make holographic images of presenters. If you were looking for bleeding edge science fiction technology made true, this is one of those stories. Holograms and projection mapping are not entirely new concepts, but the ease of access being reported by this is a step up. That being said, will it have a place or is it too early to tell? Looking at what this means as we move forward.
ISE 2021, previously set to take place solely in Barcelona only to split into four locations across Europe (and have two of those events cancelled due to changing safety procedures) finally kicks off the Live and online at Barcelona. German audio company d&b audiotechnik showcased a variety of solutions for online and in-person attendees, but that’s really just a jumping point to discuss the future of the show in general.
