It was not that long ago that I visited Crestron’s world headquarters in Rockleigh, New Jersey, and wrote about my experience on a behind-the-scenes tour of the company’s multiple facilities. At the time the company’s massive Experience Center was still under construction, so I couldn’t say anything about that in my

I’ve never been a big fan of the outsourcing trend in our country. Yet, the notion that electronic systems contractors can offer more efficient services and better quality products to their customers by outsourcing time-consuming programming chores is something that I’m learning to accept. One such independent progra

I don’t review a lot of AV products in my day-to-day role as editorial director, but when a product offer is particularly intriguing or of a certain "size" (shipping freight is such a pain), I’ll sometimes agree to test out “a loaner” for a few weeks.

The theme of next week’s IPRO Conference is “Survive and Thrive,” which couldn’t be any more appropriate than it is right now as members of the CEDIA channel’s sales representative community and its new IPRO Manufacturers Group learn to cope with new economic challenges and an industry in transition.

I had the unique opportunity to sit down and talk, face-to-face, about CEDIA’s Management Conference plans for March 3-6 in New Orleans, when CEDIA’s volunteer Content Action Team members were in Indianapolis recently. Among that group were several of the volunteers responsible for creating the structure and selec

One of the new recurring themes in the CEDIA channel involves the development of software to remotely diagnose and monitor residential AV systems. Some have been more successful than others. The most recent of these to come to my attention is from eServices in Hollywood, Florida.

When I spoke with Russound’s new VP of sales and marketing, RJ Hirshkind , about his company’s pending acquisition of Colorado vNet , I found out that the deal came together quite quickly. He called the deal “opportunistic,” rather than a long-term strategic plan by Russound . Apparently Russound CEO Charlie P

It’s good to see more manufacturers embracing the ever-important retrofit market for electronic systems contractors. Litetouch , the lighting control company out of Salt Lake City, began shipping its Hybrid Technology products back in May and made a big splash with the first public introduction at the recent CEDIA EX
