Episode 66: Living on the Edge of AV and Exponential Experience



Join the Crew host Corey Moss, Alan Brawn, Justin Rexing and guest member Christina Engh as they welcome their guests:

Kyle Davis – Global Marketing at Harman Professional
Adrian Doughty – National Sales Manager at Nureva 

While ISE 2018 is taking place at the RAI in Amsterdam (Crew members Katye McGregor Bennett, Michelle Loret and Jared Huet are there), Corey, Alan, Justin and Christina are back in the U.S. talking with their guests about some of what is taking place at the show, and much more. 

Toward the beginning, you’ll hear part of an interview Michelle conducted with Shure (focused on their Microflex Complete Wireless system), and later on in the show you’ll hear Corey talk with Katye about some of what she observed at ISE, including discussion about AVIXA’s presence there. 

Kyle begins the guest discussion by talking about Harman (and Samsung), products, and the excitement of where the company is going in 2018. Adrian talks about new products Nureva brought to the show including the brand new Dual HDL300.* Alan then begins with discussion about “2018 as the year for audio visual,” and Justin joins in with perspective of educating the end user.  Corey, Justin, Alan and the guests continue to extend this conversation, talking about industry companies, technologies, integration, the customer –  also talking about the experience. Christina known by many as a drones expert (who has worked with Stampede) brings perspective concerning experience as it alludes to being better educated, which led to education discussion with Alan and Justin who are educators in the industry. 

All then talk about those in PR and marketing (Alan begins by talking about Katye and her role in the industry), and Kyle of course gets deep into the discussion as a global marketer in AV. Corey talks about working with global PR and marketing people in AV as well. There’s also discussion of ways of getting industry information and social media.

Excellent closing comments on this show about AV, education, information and the experience (with of course a closing note from Alan Brawn) so make sure you keep listening for those. 

Sit back, plug in and experience the AV as we live… 

The AV Life. 


Episode 59: Holiday Party Edition II – Bringing a Year of AV Cheer (Part 1)



(See episode with pictures on convergentav.net)

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.

The guests joined in four separate groups, here in Part 1 you’ll hear those in groups one and two.

In group one we have:
Randy Pagnan – President/Owner, and Brandy Alvarado – Marketing and Business Development Manager at rp Visual Solutions 
Penny Sitler – Marketing Manager at Draper, Inc.
Adrian Doughty – National Sales Manager at Nureva
Apryl Lamberti – Director of Business Development – Hospitality at Almo Professional A/V

Corey hosts the first group as Adrian Doughty begins by talking about some of the big things taking place with Nureva, Randy and Brandy (who were re-named for the show) talk about the business as well as a recent big project, Apryl Lamberti discusses a number of things happening in Almo Professional A/V’s Hospitality Division, and Penny Sitler talks about some of the big occurrences for Draper, from the rebrand to the launch of their new website. An “unplanned guest” joins in, and the group gets to answer a trivia question about a company that has been in the industry for a very long time.

Group two brought us two InfoComm 2017 Award Winners, 4 CTS-Duals, and a woman who flies drones professionally and may have qualified as a wiring nightmare.

Bill Nattress (CTS-D, CTS-I) – Director of Channel Strategy – Paging at Biamp Systems  (CTS Holder of the Year)
James Maltese (CTS-D, CTS-I) – President at Audio Visual Resources  (Educator of the Year)
Paul Zielie (CTS-D, CTS-I) – Manager, Enterprise Solutions at Harman Professional
Jake Corlett (CTS-D, CTS-I) – Regional Manager – North Central at Biamp Systems 
Christina Engh – COO at UAS Solutions Group

Katye takes over hosting group two (after keeping her dog Jackson from grabbing her antlers) talking with all about how they are, what they’re doing and why Christina is dressed the way she is. Last year’s ugly sweater winner Jake Corlett decided to let someone else win this year. Paul talks about what he had to leave to join all on the show, James might be looking to go for the contest wins, and brings a very good AV and data conversation to the show. Bill discusses how he’s winding down for the year, and talks wine and music too. A true AV and drones trivia question for this group, listen in.

Sit back, plug in, and enjoy Part 1 of The AV Life holiday show!
