October is a BUSY month for ProAV — always has been. In fact, the month is only halfway over and I’ve already taken five business trips.
And, probably the biggest two events of October 2019 are happening simultaneously this week — and we have teams covering them both: Zoomtopia (Zoom Video Communications annual hurrah) in San Jose, California and New York Digital Signage Week (NYDSW) in New York City. Our NYDSW coverage, for now, is all on social media — Instagram
— check it out! Later next week, you’ll see articles, columns and new product videos from NYDSW on our website
But, for Zoomtopia, we have the industry’s BEST and most-comprehensive coverage – and some inside scoops no one else has. We’ve wrapped it (and linked it) all inside of one column here
. So, start with that and, of course, you can also follow along on social, too, as news is still trickling out. But, all of it will be hosted, originally, here
And, it’s worth reading as Zoom
invested in a control system company, added a bunch of room management features and even doubled-down on its digital signage integration inside the platform. In true Steve Jobs-like fashion, Zoom founder, Eric Yuan, took a shot at his former employer and biggest competitor, Cisco
, during the big Zoomtopia 2019 keynote yesterday — and we posted his quote here
— just scroll to the bottom! It’s hilarious.
