If time is of the essence and you’ve got to pick and choose what to consume in this week’s issue, I highly suggest you choose this story: It’s Alexis La Broi’s latest, “Awards, Recognition and Spotlights, “and it is very, very important. La Broi’s own personal experience helps illustrate what we must all be prioritizing in the new year to champion diversity and inclusivity. We have a long way to go, and the conversation must continue on in full force; read La Broi’s story for her insights.
On the product side, I bring your attention to this story on Meyer Sound’s patent-pending Ultra Reflex. It’s a solution for movie theaters bringing audio quality that complements the newest image technologies (e.g., LED displays). Basically, with Ultra Reflex, audiences throughout the viewing space experience accurate and stable sound localization, more crisp dialog, etc. How does an audio company bring LEDs into its conversation? I found out it is happening through a partnership: For the initial launch period, Ultra Reflex will be paired with Sony’s Crystal LED, a modular and scalable system incorporating MicroLED. What do you think about the efforts Meyer is making? An interesting read for sure.

Several years ago, I won an award. I was so happy and proud that I was emotional upon hearing the news. I felt that I’d represented my industry, my colleagues, my company, and myself well enough to have even been considered. My colleagues at my company were happy for me, and my manager asked that I assist in writing a press release about the news. We wrote it up and all was approved. I asked about it weeks later, and found out that a decision had been made not to send it out, because “someone ‘might poach me.'”
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.
