Here in North Carolina, we all survived Hurricane Florence (thanks to those of you who called, emailed and Tweeted!), but not all parts of our state were so lucky. Wilmington, where my parents lived for more than 20 years and where I finished high school, is facing one of the most difficult hurricane recoveries the city has ever seen. If you’re so inclined, please consider making a donation. Here is Charity Navigator’s guide to donating for victims of Hurricane Florence. For any of the other #AVTweeps here in the Carolinas, we hope you fared well.
Today we have a couple columns from Dr. Fred Ampel — one on really listening to your clients and one on the importance of using certified professionals when it comes to rigging, with a column aptly titled “Gravity.” We also have news from Zoom, Extron, Atomos, DPA Microphones and more.
Finally, if you’re in the Boston area, we’ll be at Almo ProAV’s E4 AV Tour on Friday, which is being held at the Boston Marriott Newton. It’s free and will have classes going on all day that offer CTS RUs, as well as a trade show floor with more than 40 Almo AV vendors. Gary is also the keynote speaker again and he’ll be going over the ins and outs of AV over IP. Register here if you want to go.
