As Gary Kayye mentioned in the intro last time, our summer has been anything but slow. We’ve been busier than ever, from a busy early summer trade show season to directly hopping into prep for LAVNCH WEEK 6 and CEDIA Expo. By the way, registration for both is totally open so click on either link to find out more!
On top of that, we’ve been traveling all over the place in between shows! Gary spent some time with an integrator a few weeks ago; I traveled to spend time with and learn more about a manufacturer last week (story coming soon) — all I can say is that the busy summer seems to have translated all over our industry.
With everything being so busy, do you think companies have had time to be innovative?

Finally, our friends over at Futuresource look into whether there is a place for large sensor video acquisition in live production.

Enjoy and happy Wednesday!
