After an electric, record breaking ISE 2018 show, the Crew is back along with guests who have returned from exhibiting at the show in Amsterdam. Alan and Justin have joined Corey and Lauren who were on the Part 1 show to talk with the guests about what their companies did at ISE along with their experiences at the show.

Joan Vandermate begins by talking with the Crew about the new SmartDock Flex.

Kordon Vaughn talks about a few product and news items: Triad One Streaming Amplifier, Pakedge Wireless Router with BakPak Lite and the recent acquisition of Ihiji.

Brady Bruce talks about Jupiter PixelNet 2.0 along with the new range of laser projectors. There’s also very interesting projection and screens discussion here as well brought by Alan.

Rich Ventura begins by talking about NEC’s partnerships and relationships which is always a major discussion for him. NEC brought a range of new technologies including RB Laser to the show and Rich discusses that (along with an award given to NEC). There’s also discussion of what NEC is doing with Raspberry Pi, a must listen.

The show wraps (as in Part 1) with the guests and Crew members talking about what’s upcoming for them and their companies in terms of trade shows and events (including ‘The AV Life’ coming to the DSE).

Sit back, plug in, and we hope you’ve enjoyed all of our coverage of ISE 2018 as we all live…

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.
