Activity Based Working: Enterprise Adopts Collaborative Models From Education

In today’s new global economic state, many companies are looking to improve their bottom line through efficiency gains, productivity tools, and collaboration as opposed to more traditional models of market growth. Large companies are now seriously re-thinking just about everything in their business processes. In the quest to make a workspace more productive, almost nothing […]

One Simple Rule For Being Happy

One Simple Rule For Being Happy

There are rules to live by, and mostly they’re pretty universal. Some our parents teach us, like that touching a hot stove is a bad idea. Others are taught to us as part of the Social Contract, like signaling before changing lanes (To be honest, where I live, an alarming majority of drivers haven’t heard […]

A Proposal

A Proposal

A few months ago I wrote a column, and a subsequent blog post about how manufacturers don’t reach out to technology managers. It is all still right here on the rAVe site if you need to get caught up.  I called out the manufacturers and blamed them for not being the best possible salesman.  I […]

On Golf, Prospecting, and Chutzpah

On Golf, Prospecting, and Chutzpah

I recieve a lot of emails. I also recieve a lot of spam emails, mostly product pitches from overseas manufacturers. I actually do read (okay, skim) them all. While most of them are tedious and uninteresting there is the occasional gem hidden amongst all the dross; the odd interesting new product that I think worth bringing […]

Virtually Limitless

Virtually Limitless

Very recently, virtual reality has finally grown out of the ridiculous spectacle of the early ’90s into a legitimate display peripheral.

When AV Devices Attack Croak

More often than not the inspiration for my editorials and blog posts come from recent events/incidents/disasters in my life. Invariably, in these incidents (and disasters) I have to fall back on my training as an installer and designer. To quote Al Pacino from The Godfather: Part III: “Just when I thought I was out…they pull […]

The Soccer Save – US Style

The Soccer Save – US Style

I feel the need to post about soccer — excuse me, fútbol. The soccer-craze has hit the U.S., finally, after decades and decades of “them” telling “us” that soccer would, one day, be the hottest sport in America and compete for our attention like basketball and football do. My middle school coach said, “You need […]

Infocomm Wrap-up, Part the Fourth — Hits and Misses

Infocomm Wrap-up, Part the Fourth — Hits and Misses

A week past my return from InfoComm, I’m finally getting to write my overall reflections on the show and what technology I saw there. For further perspectives, visit my esteemed colleague Alex Mayo, who offers his own perspective. Alex is a bright man and a very talented designer with whom I’m quite fortunate to work. […]

Calibration is Back

Calibration is Back

I’ve been told that given the cost and time involved in careful commercial display calibration, there was a lull in integrators offering calibration services for the bulk of display installs. With the increasing popularity of video walls over large projectors the market pressure for calibration services is on the rise. When displays are that close, […]
