Happy Tuesday! Things have slowed down here at the office, but we’re already discussing plans for ISE 2022. I’m hoping to get to go — it would be my first in-person show with rAVe! Will you be going to Barcelona for ISE?
Our columns this week include a technical piece about room acoustics. As we know in the HOW market, the performance of a sound system depends on the acoustics of the room it is in. So, how and why do we test acoustics, and what tech works best to get an accurate reading of acoustic levels in any given room? Pat Brown from SynAudCon gives some great advice and answers the question, “Sub or no sub?” Get a look into what type of kit is needed for testing and how you can create one too.
Our second column this week tells us to look into the past to see the future. The AV industry has had the equipment and software needed for hybrid connection all along, and we can use these tools to look at the future of AV. Murphy Daley’s piece, “Looking Back To Go Forward – We Had the Keys All Along,” discusses why customers and clients need to know about our tools and solutions as we continue to figure out the future of hybrid work and events (such as worship services). Murphy says we have the keys to the future, so now is the time to get informed and inform our customers about what is possible.
I think that is it for today! Don’t miss exciting news and updates below. I’m off to pack InfoComm 2021 T-shirts … so I’ll see you next time! Bye!
Prior to designing a sound system, room acoustics testing needs to be done. Pat Brown answers the question, “Do I need a sub when testing the acoustics in the room?” You will also learn what Pat uses in his test kit.
Our AV technology suite had the conferencing tools and hardware from the beginning of the pandemic. But there are also occupancy sensors and room usage tools we can supply. Customers need to know about these tools and be provided with a vision of how they can be used. There are savings to be realized for the customers and retention strategies to begin in this office and WFH hybrid reality.
