Last week Kaleidescape introduced a new product, the Cinema One, that I and many others in the trade and consumer press felt was pretty big news. For a company known for making systems for the luxury market costing as much as automobiles, breaking the $4,000 barrier was a major move to capture a much broader segment of the market. That is good for them as a company, and good for Kaleidescape dealers because they finally have a way to overcome the one major hurdle that killed most sales.

With the fall “selling season” still a few months down the road, competition is already heating up in the UHD/4K display arena with today’s introduction of the first 50-inch Ultra HD TV priced under $1,000. Scheduled for availability in August, TCL will join Seiki in the low-cost end of the UHD market, setting a new line in the sand as the first such model to be released at $999; the MSRP for the Seiki model still shows on their web site as $1,299.

Maybe it is due to running a company, raising two kids, blogging weekly for you fine folks, or something else. Yet, no matter how tired I am at the end of the day, I lay down and my mind refuses to land. Over the years, I have tried many things to alleviate this issue.

A lifetime achievement award is a tough call. At what point has a person truly accumulated a “lifetime’s worth” of achievements deserving enough for recognition? And how long do you wait before honoring them?

Demonstrate a Kaleidescape system to 100 people and I bet you’ll have 100 people that would love to own one. With its world-class user interface, near instantaneous access to a vast library of DVDs, Blu-rays and CDs, automatic bookmarking of the most iconic scenes in thousands of films, and the world’s only way to download and own movies in exact Blu-ray quality, Kaleidescape systems are one of the easiest products to get people excited about.

I’ve been holding off on writing this blog because every time I think of the word, “alliances,” I can’t help but picture the TV show Survivor. And, when I think of Survivor, I think of my fellow blogger John Sciacca. He is, in his own words, the “foremost AV authority on Survivor.” Yet, the show is a primal example of how forming alliances can get you to the finish line. In the business world, this is a must for companies that aspire for growth and strength.

“How many custom installers does it take to change a light bulb?”

The answer: “Just one. But it takes several hours to first research the bulb type and load, compare it to the list of approved bulbs, replace and reprogram the new dimmer, and then change the bulb.”

I recently had maintenance done on my car at a new repair shop, replacing the alternator and water pump. The interior of the car was a bit of mess when I brought it in, the detritus of two young kids littering the floor and the back seat. You can image my shock when I got the car back and it was spotless—the shop had completely vacuumed the interior, leaving it in better shape than I gave it to them. When I checked under the hood, I found that they did the same there, cleaning up the dirt and stains that inevitably occur.

A few years ago, we installed all the AV in a new building for a client. The building housed a high-end conference room (with a hidden screen and projector—the projector actually dropped down from the ceiling panel), a large training room, and a small training room. A Crestron touchscreen or keypad controlled each room.

Back in my 20’s, I was a Budweiser drinker. It was affordable, light, and I liked it. As I’ve gotten older and begun to appreciate having a beer for the taste, I’ve matured and been ordering more IPAs, craft beers, and imports. My tastes have changed and my product selection has changed along with it. Plenty of my friends have stayed with Bud or other American lagers. There’s nothing wrong with that, and I don’t begrudge them anything.
