Welcome, Digital Signage #AVtweeps, to the first issue of 2021! Wow, glad 2020 is out of the way. That was a dumpster fire. Here is to hoping for bigger and better things for this next year.
— Speaking of all that, Gary Kayye starts his “Top 10 Stories of 2020” roundup by saying what we’ve all been thinking this entire time. “2020 sucked!” And that’s that about that.
— Continuing on, Nathan Haynes wrote a great piece on the evolution of AV over the years. He also ventures to talk about how the past can tell us a little about where AV is going. Technology is always evolving, people!
— The last column comes from yours truly. ICYMI, I started a new podcast series all about obtaining the CTS certification. It all started because Gary Kayye challenged me to get it, but I wanted to document my studies in hopes of helping anyone else who was also looking to get theirs. It’s going to be one wild ride.

Finally, check out some news from 22Miles — here’s a hint: The company has a new partnership with Cisco! Also, Sony has new B-Series and C-Series crystal LEDs.

There’s no doubt the audiovisual industry has progressed a long way since the advent of the gramophone and cathode-ray tube. Innovations over the last 50 to 100 years have turned AV devices into the primary content-delivery system for almost every human on Earth, and definitely a requirement for every human not on Earth. These innovations affect how we interact with each other; how we handle the day-to-day; and how we create, teach, learn, share and access knowledge, memories and moments — to name a few daily benefits.
It’s that time of year again where everyone makes ridiculous resolutions they probably won’t keep. Instead of doing all that this year, I wanted to make a resolution that would be achievable — no matter how hard it seems. So, I am studying to get my CTS! To keep me accountable, my co-workers at rAVe encouraged me to make a corresponding podcast. Hence, Study With Steph was born.
