Make sure you listen to Part 1!

Join co-hosts Corey Moss, Katye McGregor Bennett, Megan Powers and George (Santa) Fournier as they welcome their guests for the second annual holiday episode on The AV Life.

We continue the show with group three:

Maria McKinsey – Director of Business Development at Brown Innovations
Bill Cherne – Sales Engineering Manager at Sonic Foundry – Mediasite
Jen Cole – Owner at Backspace Media LLC

Megan Powers takes over hosting this group and begins talking with her social marketing co-host on ‘Making a Marketer’ on what’s going on in her world. Maria is next taking about what Brown Innovations does and some examples of the markets that they’re working in, projects as well as the experience including their partnership with NEC. Keith follows up by talking about working with Brown Innovations as well as the experience. Bill discusses working with higher ed with lecture capture and global expansion, video and he also talks about conferences and the corporate space. 

The show closes with group four: 

Jon 9 – CEO at Holonyne Corporation
Marika Aquino – Managing Partner at Tier PM AV/IT Workforce Solutions
Elaine Shuck – Director, Communication & Development at i2i Technologies 

Corey hosts the final group on the show and begins talking with Jon 9 about VIRTULARIUM® – he discusses what’s taking place now, talks about his partnership with NEC and Green Hippo, and using multi-image technology as a storytelling device (and details this technology project as well). Jon also talks about his new development in video wall programming, a combination of hardware and software, which he hopes to bring to InfoComm this year. Along with this, he talks about starting a non-profit foundation to bring video wall technology to education and arts institutions.

Next Corey talks about first getting to know Elaine along with education, which is a big part of her technology career. She talks about working with students in the U.S. to connect with other students across the world (Ghana for one), and how they will use technology in the future. She also mentions two teachers in Alaska who have done very big things with videoconferencing. Marika finishes the show talking about Tier PM and what the company does that has set them apart from other recruiters in AV/IT, along with her background in the IT industry. Corey and Marika talk about how they met, how they’ve worked together in podcasting and have been doing the Hot Jobs for all that time. 

Sit back, plug in and have a very happy holiday!
