The Human Touch
With so many stories about control this week, you might believe you’ve stumbled into A State of Control by accident. But no, it’s time to take a look at the latest stories coming out of the commercial side of the AV industry. Joining us to discuss the news is Install Empress at Allen & Heath & host of the Church Sound Podcast Samantha Potter and Higher Education AV Field Solution Architect for CDW Jimmie Singleton.
AtlasIED and RTI have announced compatibility with AtlasIED’s own Atmosphere audio solution. Through this partnership, RTI customers will be able to manage Atmosphere directly through their control systems. It’s always interesting when companies come together like this for the sake of their products, reaching a greater audience than they would by themselves. But it’s just a business strategy. What do partnerships like this mean to integrators in the space?
Next we look at the future of virtual control. It’s a topic that we have spent plenty of time here at AVNation, not only talking about its applications with programmers on A State of Control but with manufacturers like Extron to see the potential power in a corporate space. Part of the rise of virtual control might stem from supply chain issues and focusing on software rather than hardware. We no longer have as many of those black boxes in stock. We discuss where virtual control is going in different parts of the industry.
Huddly has premiered their Huddly Mutli-Camera Experience with the world’s first AI-directed multi-camera system. It features three networked cameras capable of adapting to many different applications and setups. Meeting equity is one thing, but the purported artificial intelligence angle is interesting. So simply put, how do we feel about AI in our meetings?
