5 Years of HETMA

There’s no April Fool’s to be found here. If anything, higher education is all about getting further from fool status. Unless you’re Plato talking about Socrates. Joining us in the latest news surrounding higher ed AV is Scott Tiner from Bates College, Ernie Bailey from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, (some of) Rob Rasberry from Drexel University and Kevin Chan from the University of California, Berkeley.

A Webex conference call was intercepted between German officers discussing the war in Ukraine. We had a similar conversation about this topic on an episode of AVWeek, but we take this to the higher education side.

AV Magazine asks a question concerning Microsoft Teams Rooms. Do they belong to AV or IT? The convergence conversation has been ongoing as long as AV and IT has existed. Is AV IT? Are they one and the same? Surely by the end of this discussion we’ll come up with a definitely definitive answer and we’ll never have to have this conversation again.

HETMA is celebrating their fifth year of being an organization. But rather than ask what you’re supposed to get for this anniversary (it’s wood?) we want to take a second and congratulate our host Erin for taking leadership of HETMA as their Chair. We talk about what’s changed in these past five years of having the organization around the AV industry.
