If you’re reading this on Wednesday morning, great! That means I scheduled the newsletter properly while I’m on the way to CEDIA Expo. (Knowing myself, I’m doing this on approximately four hours of sleep because sleep is for the weak.)
While I won’t spend as much time telling you all about this newsletter — I do want you to take a look at the columns this time. Mark Coxon writes about a few overlooked AV design considerations, especially as you’re putting together collaboration systems for different clients. Are you taking all the proper design considerations into account? Also, Michael Katz writes about the benefits of using a consultant. He interviews a few different ones and talks about the lessons he learned from the conversations!
Enjoy all that — take a look at our CEDIA Expo microsite to find out more about what we’ll be up to this week. Also, be sure to scroll down and check out the roster for LAVNCH WEEK 6. It’s going to be great!
Finally, check out this survey (in partnership with Nureva). We’re taking a look at the shift to hybrid work — how has that been going for your team? Has this shift affected your collaboration designs? Check it out here and do fill it out if you don’t mind! Have a great rest of the week!
In the current market, we see a lot of products being kitted together and marketed based on the size of the room. A small room kit, a medium room kit, a large room kit, etc. In other cases, service providers design something once in a way that they can sell it multiple times without modifications, but not without compromise.
There are many different types of consultants, such as Telecom, IT, environmental, audiovisual, business services, etc. and different reasons to hire one (or more). Many focus on different vertical markets, such as broadcast, financial services, higher education, hospitality, medical, sports and others. I spoke to several consultants from various regions and slightly different focuses to better understand their businesses.
