This issue comes with a heavy heart as, this weekend, I learned that another industry friend, and digital signage guru, Lyle Bunn, passed away. Lyle was arguably the digital signage industry’s biggest advocate and fan. His industry influence will be missed and it left us with a passing message — I hope you’ll read my column below, and read what he said. Even in his last moments, he cared for our industry. Rest in peace, Lyle.
This issue of rAVe ProAV includes two awesome columns from Christopher Jaynes and Scott Tiner and are followed with some exciting news about the growth of AVIXA’s Women’s Council. Kudos to them. On the product front, a lot of cool new gear from Extron (new pendant speakers include both tension wire and sound through the same cable — FINALLY!), QSC debuted an AV-over-IP network switch, Optoma came out with new large venue projectors and Draper’s new SmartTrim is purpose-built for the Barco UniSee. I love all of these! I am hopeful you will too.
