Meet the First InfoComm 2016 Registrant
Tom Zimmerman, Design Engineer for BT Conferencing, first attended InfoComm in 1993. Now he’s
the first to register for InfoComm 2016

and solutions and what he has planned this year. Hint: His CTS certification is up for renewal.
Rockin’ the Rack

Europe, they were busy working on another AV industry standard to complement the recently released
Cable Labeling for Audiovisual Systems.
In the All Voices Blog, InfoComm Director of Standards Ann Brigida, CTS, offers a preview
of the upcoming rack-building standard.
