Latest headlines: Morgan Lawrence on AV and motorsports, Gary Kayye on streaming services and how you can utilize them and more
December 8, 2020 | Volume: 6 | Issue: 23
Hello! Happy Tuesday! Welcome to the first December issue of Buyers.Club! This has been one hell of a year, to say the very least. I can confidently say I have no idea what is going on. But we are going to keep pushing forward and figure this year out together. And if not, maybe we’ll have better luck next year.
Enjoy the two blogs for you at the very top of this newsletter — one from Morgan Lawrence on the AV in motorsports. If you think those two things have nothing to do with one another, boy do I have news for you. Get it? News? Because this is a newsletter? I’ll see myself out.
The second column is from Gary Kayye — and it’s likely about something you’ve all experienced during this year: streaming! Nearly every social media platform offers some type of free streaming service now, so how are you utilizing that? Gary’s advice: Don’t assume that the journey begins and ends with YouTube or Facebook. Streaming is only getting better and more robust. Keep an eye out!
In other news, check out the Viking Electronics door entry speaker phone, Renkus-Heinz has new products within its Iconyx Compact Series, Sharp/NEC has new large format MultiSync ME digital signage displays and more.
P.S. One more thing before I leave you to the rest of your day: Please join us TODAY starting at 11:00 a.m. EST (so now-ish) for D=SIGN: The Digital Signage Conference, hosted by AVIXA and the Digital Signage Federation (and powered by LAVNCH!). It is sure to be a good time — and before you say, “but Steph, that sounds like it’s for integrators only.” It’s not! There are a TON of sessions, so I hope to see you there! Well. You’ll see me. I won’t see you. But you catch my drift.
Racing is more than just putting a driver in a car and hoping they cross the finish line first. The drivers and the car certainly play a massive role in the success, but racing has become a data-driven sport. Technology has become a requirement for teams to have a competitive advantage.
Let’s face it, in March and April of this year, the best we could expect to deliver was very reactive. Unless you were already streaming services each weekend, it’s unlikely you had time to respond proactively to COVID. And, this summer, as states and countries started partially reopening, adding streaming via consumer platforms like Facebook, YouTube and Vimeo were considered big wins. Affordable, simple and effective.
