CEDIA certainly was all about adding Alexa voice control to custom-centric control systems and once-combative brands playing nice with the now more inclusive Sonos wireless audio system, but there were other collaborative arrangements that caught my eye at the energy-filled Dallas convention last month.
I had never met anyone from Cyprus, the tiny island in the Mediterranean Sea tucked below Turkey and above Egypt, where the spoken language is Greek.
The CEDIA show motto is Think Big. For Vin Bruno, that seems to be a personal mantra, as well.
My relationship with Alexa is complicated. On the one hand, she’s great at telling me the weather or setting a kitchen timer when I ask her for help, and she’s really responsive when I suggest that she raise or lower the lights in my family room.
The next time you bring a job candidate in for an interview, consider this: he or she is probably better trained at being interviewed than you are at conducting interviews.
Many of you built your businesses to cater to the needs and desires of Boomers. We’re at a critical inflection point now, however, and you need to start thinking about who your customers are now but also who they will be in the next 10 to 15 years.
Until now, the only “value” your systems really added to a home’s worth was in the smiles they put on your clients’ faces. Now your hard work has the potential of putting a little money back in their pockets, too.
CEDIA’s CEO has attempted to turn the conversation away from controversy, emphasizing the association’s solid renewal numbers for exhibitors and refuting Klein’s claims of CEDIA’s exclusionary policy.
Lately it seems like International CES is like a Powerball lottery, where you’ve got to be in it to win it, but in reality there are very few jackpots.
I’m fortunate to have grown up with parents who were great role models.
