Hello and happy Thursday! The good news is, it’s almost Friday — we’re getting closer and closer to InfoComm. Who’s excited?
Speaking of InfoComm, one of our columns offers a firsthand look at InfoComm 2021 attendees. We asked businesses and companies why they were attending, what precautions they will be taking and their fears and excitement about this year’s show. Check out some quotes and advice from those who are going to the show in person. P.S., if you don’t get to attend the in-person show, register for rePLAY 2021 — a recap of innovations and products from 2021 that includes coverage from InfoComm!
Our other column this week discusses things to consider when setting up your audio and video control desks. Even in rental or temporary installations, we need to make sure our control desks are set up with safety and usability in mind. This piece offers written and visual examples of different types of setups and their advantages and disadvantages. Go back to the basics and learn the best ways to be mindful when setting up control stations in any installation.
Well, I think that’s it for today, #Rentaltweeps. Don’t miss other case studies, news and updates below. I’ll see you next time!

However, no client of mine who has gone ahead and bought an excellent console has ever expressed regret.
After a year and a half of living on video calls and turning guest bedrooms into home offices, signs of a return to pre-pandemic working life are finally upon us. With InfoComm 2021 approaching, many have chosen to make the pilgrimage to Orlando to learn about the latest AV technology, trends, and of course, connect with other industry members, something we have all missed out on during the pandemic.
