Part of The Conversation
Even though the weather is out of control this week, the news does not stop. And since we cover the residential side of the AV industry, neither will we. Joining us this week is Chief Strategist for KMB Communications Katye McGregor-Bennett and Senior Nerd at Backstage AV Mosey Levy.
We start off looking at the possibilities of “invisible audio” in the residential space. Sometimes you want to see those huge speakers that dole out the sound, but in more cases of commercial and even the dreaded (at least to Matt) resimercial areas having that sound without knowing where it’s coming from is a higher priority. Which came first, the designer wanting to hide the sound or an intergrator looking to make a deliberate choice in the build? Looking at the utilization of invisible speakers and what makes sense for the right project.
CEDIA has announced their election of David Weinstein as the new Chair. In addition, it has appointed new officers that serve as their 2022 Executive Committee. This includes Jamie Breiesemeister as vice chairperson, Michael Sherman as secretary and Alex Capecelatro as treasurer. What does this mean for CEDIA members, and even those not a member but still in the residential space?
Apropos of CEDIA, the cybersecurity brand guardDog.ai has been added to their Propel Partner program. This connects CEDIA members to discounts and service plans for their clients. We are no stranger to cybersecurity and its importance to the residential space. How can we talk to our clients about that importance and the impact that ignoring it can have?
