If done well, the event, like this system, can be a huge success. No one will even realize the amount of planning that went into the project, how many changes, or how long it took. They will only remember the experience.

In CEDIA World, we still can’t agree on a standard chart of accounts, workflow, or even the best way to run a service call.

So, you’re lucky enough to live in a place with a fantastic view. Now it’s time to design your living room. Around what do you arrange your furniture? Your breathtaking views, or a wall with your TV?

My business partner and I were very frustrated with the current inventory situation for several Sony 4K televisions. And if you are a Sony dealer, then I’m sure you’ll understand what I’m talking about. The reply he received from the company’s VP of audio/video specialty/custom integration, Frank Sterns, goes a long way toward alleviating that frustration.

as an industry, sometimes we stick with the same old songs because they’re familiar and we know all the words: word of mouth, yard signs, truck wraps and a dicey dabble in ads or an open house once a year. But have we really tried a new tune? Maybe now’s the time to be the champion of change in your market and take it.

InfoComm was definitely an interesting show to attend, but I guess I’m a residential guy at heart and always will be. While the products were cool, it just didn’t get my heart pumping like CEDIA EXPO does.

Unfortunately the whole HDCP 2.2 thing is looming out on the horizon for all of our jobs, a little like a mega asteroid off in some distant part of the galaxy. It’s an asteroid that is slowly spinning and rotating its way toward us in an inevitable death orbit that the guys down at Arecibo just know is gonna plow into the planet…someday.

Apple does simple (one of the hardest features to deliver) really well. So does Sonos. I would love to see the two figure out how to work together natively. Our job is to deliver simplicity to our customers and figure out how to best design a revenue model around that promise.

From a technology standpoint, InfoComm is my favorite show. Not only is it a trade show, but also a buying show for universities and government, which equates to some crazy budgets and booth design.
