Demystification of the Internet of Things

Dan Jackson, Creston's Manager of Research and Development, pulls back the curtain on the Internet of Things, exploring real-world applications from yesteryear and today. "The first projector that we connected to the network was in 1997 at the University of Wisconsin. Back then, we didn't call it IoT. It was AV monitoring and management, which really doesn't sell it as well as 'IoT' does," he says. Read the story.

Speak Up: Advice From Not-Your-Average VP

Lloyd Ranola, Vice President at the San Francisco-based acoustical, audiovisual and telecommunications consulting firm Charles M. Salter Associates, admits he doesn't look like your average VP.
