Rants and rAVes — Episode 591: InfoComm Special Podcast: Nureva to Focus on Adding Integrators at InfoComm 2017

Rants and rAVes —With their third appearance at InfoComm, Nureva hopes to add more ProAV integrators focused on large room deployments. I had a chance to catch up with Nureva’s CEO and co-founder, Nancy Knowlton, yesterday on my Rants and rAVe’s podcast and she told me that, in addition to focusing on new features for their Span system at InfoComm 2017 next month in Orlando, Nureva will be proactively expanding their distribution in the US and Canada. As you may know, the SPAN is a cloud-based visual collaboration system that’s meant to immerse users in a more collaborative environment and lends itself well to large spaces.

Listen to this podcast as Nancy explains that initiative as well as their other InfoComm plans – they will be exhibiting in booth 2981. And, of course, Nureva is at http://www.nureva.com.
