Figure Out What You Do
Even though we’re frozen as our editor’s food left in the back of the fridge, we are still dedicated to bring you the latest news coming out of the commercial side of the AV industry. Joining us this week is Senior Designer at Verrex Akintayo Adewole, Director of System Solutions for QSC Cory Schaeffer and Managing Director of Cavlo Mike Brown-Cestero.
We start off looking at Logitech’s RightSight 2 autoframing technology that uses audio and video intelligence to detect the placement and voices of in-room participants. It is looking to provide equity for those employees in the office and those working from home. Remote work is not going away any time soon, but there still seems to be a divide between the two parties. What can AV as an industry do to bridge that gap and provide equity for workers in any situation?
BBC Sport has created a virtual studio space to cover the Beijing Winter Games through the company Virzt. Extended Reality is something that has only in the last decade been viable enough for consumers, and now we can look at where it belongs in the AV space through companies like Modus VR and Vizrt. Where could it go from here?
Xilica has announced their commitment to decrease carbon emissions throughout its business to net-zero, to achieve a Climate Neutral Certified status. It’s a good stance to have especially in our modern world, but does it have an impact on customers? Will they back a brand specifically for their commitments, or does it take more than that? Can other companies in the AV space lower their emissions and really embrace that green AV?
