Now that we’ve taken a breather with the holiday weekend here in the U.S., we can come back to work with fresh eyes and a little more energy. (Unless you’re me, rewatching the entirety of “Stranger Things” and staying up too late but that’s my own problem.) ANYWAY, now that we have a little more time on our hands with InfoComm 2022 over and maybe at least a few weeks before any other trade shows or events, we have some time to reflect! What better way to do that than by taking this quiz via LAVNCH [CODE]? Find out just how many iconic InfoComm experiences you had at the past show. If you’re missing a few, now you know what to look forward to for next year!
In other news, Mark Coxon has some really interesting thoughts when it comes to the “back-to-the-office-park” people. He says that many employers are getting antsy to send workers back to the office, but why? Because of the money the physical office space costs? That’s a reason for employers, not employees. Think instead about the work that’s hard to do from home — that should be what we send people to the office for. It seems silly now that we’re entering a new frontier of everything else but we expect people to work the same way! Let’s put on our thinking caps, people!
We also have a column this time from John Borns over at Exertis Almo. He discusses the idea of “good enough” and how in AV, “good enough” doesn’t always last. In terms of projection, he says “HD content and laser projectors have changed how we need to pair screens and projectors together. If you have an old Matte White screen, and you won’t use a 4K laser projector with it, you’re likely not to be getting the full effect of your new projector. Just as projectors have evolved, so have screens.” It’s worth it to consider what you want your technology to do so that you’re building solutions to last rather than to “just be OK for now!”
Anyway, I hope you all have a great rest of your week. I’ll be in touch next Wednesday (for your next newsletter)!
