Walled Garden, Meet Steamroller
We’re here to bring you another week of the biggest stories from the commercial side of the AV industry. Joining us this week are a set of familiar faces, starting with Founder of Control Concepts & host of A State of Control Steve Greenblatt, IT Manager of Classroom Technology for Johns Hopkins University & host of EDTech Erin Maher-Moran, and Director of Client Services for Bates College Scott Tiner.
Google, perhaps playing to the month in slasher fashion, is killing their Jamboard whiteboarding app and display. This is not the first victim of Google, and going by a particular site cataloguing the cancelled or abandoned projects, it won’t be the last.

Finally, AV Technology had a preview of AMX’s latest control system called MUSE. According to them (and their chat with Harman’s Jeff Burch) it takes a steamroller to ‘walled gardens’ in control systems, being far from the AMX systems of yore. How does AMX come back ‘from the wilderness’ with this new product?
