Asia and Oceania
To better serve the nuanced local needs of InfoComm International® member communities, we created new advisory groups in Hong Kong and Singapore last month, following successful initiatives in Australia and India.
Members of these new groups represent diverse sectors of the industry, from consultants, systems integrators, distributors, and in-house technology directors to manufacturers, such as Biamp, Christie, Crestron, Kramer and Samsung. Together we work to explore new ways to address local challenges in the AV communities, and provide resources to nurture member engagement and support.
It's truly wonderful to see such busy members of InfoComm devoting their time and putting their heads together to drive our industry forward. We look forward to learning from their first-hand insights and bringing more effective local programs to better serve our members.
Overheard at Asia's First InfoComm on Campus Event
The recent InfoComm on Campus event welcomed close to 90 technology professionals to the University of Hong Kong campus to explore how new classroom technology can be optimised and seamlessly integrated into an increasingly dynamic learning environment. Read a recap of some of the lessons shared by our esteemed speakers who each play a different role in classroom design, but are all at the cutting edge of learning innovation. They include professors, IT and AV directors, curriculum innovators, and instructional environment designers, sharing their experiences from across Hong Kong and Australia.

University of Hong Kong Adds Eight CTS-Certified Technicians
To ensure its technical teams are properly trained to provide top-notch support to teachers and students, the University of Hong Kong (HKU) now requires all technicians to become InfoComm CTS®-certified.
At the recent InfoComm on Campus event in Hong Kong, seven HKU technicians were awarded their CTS certificates. They are Wong Yue Kit (Chris), Chan Hin Wai (William), Kwan Man Kin (K), Kwan Ho Ming (Patrick), Lau Ka Ming (Albert), Chee Yiu Ming (Ming,) and Lam Lee Po (Ricky). In June, Wong Chin To (Tim) also passed his CTS exam.
Congratulations to these new CTS-certified professionals!
Corporate Technology Services' Staff in Australia Joins the Ranks of Certified Technology Specialists
The company's initials coincidentally match, but as of this month four employees from Corporate Technology Services Pty Ltd in Australia have successfully earned their InfoComm International Certified Technology Specialist™ (CTS) certification.
Congratulations to Ryan Gomes, Reinhardt Sosin, Daniel Sobkowski and George Azzi for this achievement. All four now get to add the CTS designation after their names.
"Being more service based, we see the InfoComm CTS certification as a great tool to not only demonstrate that our technicians are some of the best in the industry, but it forms a solid part of our internal training program to develop all staff, as well as acts as an indication of those who take their career more seriously," said Duncan Lugstein, Managing Director. Corporate Technology Services specialises in full AV managed services, such as installation of audiovisual infrastructure.
