Whatever happened to @madsoundguy Chuck Espinoza, CTS-D, CTS-I? He joined fellow CTS-I and new InfoComm International instructor Marcus Yarborough to help educate AV professionals about everything from AV design to project management. Join them, along with Net-AV's Dawn Meade, CTS, as they talk about getting your learn on -- in the classroom, online or at the InfoComm show.
Whether your InfoComm 2015 in Orlando kicks off with pre-show education or the Tuesday evening keynote panel on the Internet of Things with The New York Times' Nick Bilton, there is a lot to see and do June 13-19. Get a preview of the big show from a roster of InfoComm insiders, including Senior VP of Expositions Jason McGraw. Learn about the new drone pavilion, the latest courses, the role of Microsoft, and why you'll want to be on the lookout for something called Mobi at the Orange County Convention Center. Listen now.
In this episode of the InfoComm Today Podcast, we talk to technology managers in higher education, including two members of the InfoComm task force that produced the AV/IT Infrastructure Guidelines for Higher Education, to learn more about the types of systems that colleges and universities are installing and the challenges they face during design and integration.
InfoComm International volunteers have produced a definitive guide to integrating AV into 21st-century learning spaces. The 158-page document is free to download and includes everything from descriptions of education technologies, to design considerations for learning spaces, to best practices in project planning, budgeting, and coordination. Learn more and download this valuable resource.
Many in the AV industry equate InfoComm International with the annual InfoComm trade show. But InfoComm and the AV industry truly are international, engaging professionals across the globe in education, networking, member services and, of course, new technology. Pro AV continues to capture the imagination of people worldwide, and every market is unique and special. In this episode of the InfoComm Today Podcast, hear about the global reach of AV from people who’ve seen it firsthand.
The buzz around concepts such as distance learning and massive open online courses (MOOCs) make it seem as if media and higher education have suddenly and serendipitously collided, like some professorial version of chocolate and peanut butter.
Lync enables PCs, tablets and smartphones to double as both deskphones and videoconferencing endpoints. As a result, many companies are using Lync as a way to eliminate the upfront and operational costs of deskphones and specialized endpoints. That savings could free up more money for the AV budget.
InfoComm was privileged to sponsor and participate in the USA Science and Engineering Festival, held April 25-27 in Washington, D.C. Thousands of kids, parents and educators got to play with some of the latest audiovisual (AV) applications and learn more about careers and training in AV.
How does the pro-AV industry attract and educate the next generation of audiovisual designers, engineers, installers, operators, and more? The InfoComm Board of Directors has made workforce development part of its latest strategic plan. Join Jeremy Caldera, CTS®-D, CTS-I of Zdi Inc.; Barry Goldin, CTS, of Unified AV Systems; and Sarah Joyce of Electrosonic as they share their thoughts on apprenticeship, scholarships, AV curricula and more.
They’re your customers, colleagues and — in many cases — the ultimate judges of the AV systems you design, install and/or operate. Join tech managers Ernie Bailey, CTS, of the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences; Greg Brown, CTS, of UCLA; and Tim Albright, CTS, of Lewis & Clark Community College to find out what they think about AV integrators, which AV solutions they want the most, and what it’s like managing AV technology in an IT world. Tune into the latest InfoComm Today Podcast now.
Many live events and other AV professionals came into the industry through a side door. They went to a school to study graphics design, or TV production or some other specialty. There was a time these important AV technicians learned on the job, but today, is that enough to build a trained network of independent service providers?
Within a few short years, half of all employers will formally welcome employees to use their personal mobile devices on the job. It will be up to technology specialists to make sure all those devices can get on a network, join a videoconference or just beam content to a presentation system.
With just days to go before InfoComm 2013 in Orlando, InfoComm Senior Vice President of Education and Certification Melissa Taggart, IMCCA Director of Emerging Technologies David Danto, Marshall Electronics Director of Sales and Marketing Perry Goldstein, and InfoComm Senior Editor Brad Grimes discuss Super Tuesday, collaborative conferencing events, the Digital Signage Presentation Stage (Booth 5589), and CTS®.
To many, live events and installed AV systems are like apples and oranges. So why would a rigger, for example, want to acquire the skills necessary to become a Certified Technology Specialist™? It turns out there are many reasons, and today, more live events professionals are taking the time to broaden their knowledge base.

The roots of the AV industry are firmly planted in the K-12 education market, dating back to the formation of the National Association of Visual Education Dealers (NAVED) in 1939.
Look in any college student's room and it's a safe bet you won't find a Cisco E20 or a Polycom VVX 1500. Their absence is a major reason why it's challenging for schools to enable one-on-one and multiparty videoconferences between students and faculty.
Fiber-optic networks are showing up in AV installs at an increasing rate, driven by the need to transport a large amount of audio, video and data over a long distance.
For those new to the indutry, this setup guide will be a handy reference for troubleshooting, identifying unfamiliar connectors, or knowing when to call for help.
Prepare for the CTS-I with this complete study system covering AV systems installation and important exam topics.
