No Touching

When you have multiple last-minute cancellations, you get an interesting way to recruit people for our show. But whether we have four people or are just alone yelling into the emptiness of the internet, we are still committed to bringing you the latest news out of the commercial side of the AV industry. Joining us this week by invite is Pro AV Product Marketing Manager for NETGEAR John Henkel and by way of right-time-right-place twitter callout is Porduct Manager for QSC Mike Brandes.

We start off with the discussion of the convergence of AV and IT. It’s not a new situation, but as technology marches on there’s much more crossover between the two spaces. Can we work together? According to one Frank Padikkala, “AV and IT are like a married couple; you might hate each other but you gotta keep at it for the kids.” But does it really have to be just friendly enough to get things done, or is there a chance for interoperability? Looking at the point of contact for integrators with AV and IT.

Uber has installed a new digital art experience in the lobby of their Mission Bay campus in San Francisco. The installation combines lighting, sound design and interactive content to give guests & partners a dynamic experience. Will we see more companies leverage AV like this to enhance their spaces? Do integrators need to make that push to show companies what they can do with AV?

Shure has released their Microflex Complete Wireless Conference System, now with a Handsfree Mode. It allows for free-flowing conversations and is opportune for those less formal situations. Handsfree solutions were quite the rage back in 2020 when we needed to keep clean and touch less things. Now that we’re starting to see a downturn in the pandemic, what’s going to happen to the touchless solutions?
