IOT Impact of the IoT on AV Commissioning and End-User Training
The idea of connected devices has been around for years. But now it's exploding. In this webinar, Cisco's Gary Hall, CTS®‑D, CTS‑I, and Yorktel's Vishal Brown talk about the impact IoT has on AV, how to commission it, the social and cultural impacts, and managing the end-user experience.
Whitlock's Julian Phillips Chats With InfoComm
During InfoComm 2016, we sat down with Whitlock's Julian Phillips, who wears many hats within the AV industry, from his executive position with one of the largest integrators, to board director of the Global Presence Alliance and InfoComm International® Secretary.

CTS Badge InfoComm Today Podcast: Badges of Honor

Smart City  

One Box to Rule Them All. Then What?

The industry trend of assimilation continues as more features are embedded into a single device and manufacturers compete to provide a breadth of technology. So what will the industry look like when hardware becomes commonplace and the installation is down to a few devices? AVI-SPL's David Thorson explores this movement and some AV devices leading the way. Read his blog post.

Jesse Scarborough  

Young AV Professional Jesse Scarborough Shares his Experience

A year into his AV career, 24-year-old system design engineer Jesse Scarborough, CTS, chair of the new Young AV Professionals Committee, talked to InfoComm about his entry into the AV industry and his thoughts on how the industry can appeal to millennials and the next-generation AV workforce. Read the interview.


Call Out the Drones

Drones allow access to higher heights and tighter spaces. When a disaster hits, insurance agencies are using drones to inspect the damaged area. On the entertainment side, filmmakers use them to capture new cinematic shots. InfoComm Director of Market Research James Chu takes a look at the latest developments in drones, a tech trend to watch, according to the 2016 Environmental Scan Report. Read the blog article.

AV Magazine  

How Does The Internet of Things Affect AV?

AV Magazine Editor Clive Couldwell talks with a panel of industry experts — The Clarient Group's Michael Carter, InfoComm's Brad Grimes and AVI-SPL's Danny Rogers — about how the pro-AV community should engage with IoT. Watch the video now.
