Some of you may have received the same mass email we received today from the president of Arrive Systems (we’ve posted it below). Like many of you in the ProAV market, we were also wowed by the so-called Arrive Corporation master plan that debuted at InfoComm 2009 and then again in 2010. But, so far it’s been, well, tagged asvaporware.
So, what do you think? Do you believe them or not? Max was a master-hire for them back at InfoComm. Max was well-positioned to bring awareness to Arrive unlike anyone else they have working there. And now, less than five months later, Max drops out. We continue to wonder.
