ResiWeek 179: Electronic Lifestyle Craftsman

Feel The Power of the Sun

After surviving both Canada and America’s national holidays as well as a west coast earthquake, we take a look at the latest news for the residential side of the industry.

Andrew Nichols from CE Pro writes about different ways to bring a display to a room, comparing Ultra Short Throw (UST) projection and flat-panel display screens. Is there a clear victor in this race? Discussing the pros and cons of each system and where they fit in a modern home.

Speaking of putting things in the right place, we discuss Residential Tech Today’s article on Smart Home design and the steps to a sound smart home.

Lastly, we discuss putting solar panels onto houses. Is it something integrators should be looking into? Are they right for every house in every area?

Scott has been involved in the audiovisual industry since he was 17 years old. Matt started servicing houses of worship throughout the Ontario area and moved into residential. Scott has served on the CEDIA board of directors since 2018. His opinions are his own and should not be seen as reflecting or representing those of CEDIA or its board.

Matt is an accomplished lighting designer, audiovisual systems designer, and marketing expert. Scott created the original website for AVNation and continues to direct the marketing and art assets of the organization. Scott is part owner of AVNation Media, Inc and has been involved with the organization since shortly after its creation. Like AVWeek, ResiWeek is modeled after This Week in Tech where the host will read news stories of the week and panelists aim to provide context, analysis, and their opinion on why the stories matter to the residential AV industry.
