In the works for more than two years—and released last September—UL’s 2802 Performance Testing Standard for Camera Image Quality defines a method to assess video image quality through a series of performance-based tests that are conducted on production digital cameras.

I kept hearing the arguments from industry colleagues that Sonos was so great and that I had to give it a shot. I knew it didn’t sound as good as it could and because I take pride on educating myself and staying open minded about products and technologies, I decided I had to give it the ol' Pepsi Challenge.

Perhaps other than Sports Illustrated or Hooters, no industry is as proud of their racks as ours. (OK, that will be the only rack double-entendre, I promise!) The delivery and trimming of the AV rack often indicates nearing the job’s completion, and a clean, tight rack is a mark of pride for many installers.

If you’ve followed any of my posts on our company’s Mega Job so far, you’ll know that we’re neck deep in the largest project we’ve ever done.

Sometimes when I read about people talking about social media for their business and needing to embrace social media to be successful, it makes me think of that Steve Martin quote. It’s like saying: you want some more surefire, can’t miss business advice? Be successful and hugely profitable.

Combining CEDIA and InfoComm into one big happy family, Integrated Systems Europe took place last week in Amsterdam. After my first visit to this show, I took away a lot about the European market that seemed relevant for our readers who are mostly here in North America. It’s a fantastic show that I highly recommend anyone interested in visiting Europe in the winter make time to drop by for the experience.

Everyone wants your attention. Your employees want it. Sales people certainly want it. Customers want it, and no matter what you do, you can’t add hours to your day. And yet, I’m going to tell you another thing you need to be doing.
