Each of the guests begin by introducing themselves and their companies as well as some of what they’ll be doing at ISE. Tim handles this round, how did he do? Pretty good we believe.

Next each guest gets more in depth about what the company is doing in terms of products, solutions and more. Garth talks about products and certain other companies (along with the SDVoE Alliance) ZeeVee is working with at ISE, he also talks about AV over IP and attendee expectations at the show. Peter talks about Shure audio and applications/environments that the products are used in – he focuses product discussion on Microflex Complete and Microflex Complete Wireless, also board room and huddle room applications. There’s a whole new brand experience, and a tag line – listen in for this.

Adrian talks about Nureva and live remote demos they’ll be doing (Adrian will be participating remotely), and discussing growth in terms of their products and the collaborative space. Aurangzeb talks about Altia Systems, whose year began at CES, and their Panacast camera technology – the new Panacast 3. He talks about CES, and the real differences between that show and ISE. Eric discusses Almo Pro A/V, the company as well as their global focus. He talks about Almo nobox and the new Watchdog solution. He also talks a bit about the E4 AV Tour, which begins in March and makes four stops over the year.

Then, it’s time for an Amsterdam quiz for all of the guests as they’re asked questions about the city and some of the goings-on. The winner may have been totally unexpected… and the prize? Anyone who has been in Amsterdam and craves for that favorite snack food when they return in February – that’s it.

Next some of the guests talk about special promotions at the show (or swag), and all will give reasons why to visit with them at ISE.

Sit back, plug in, and join the Crew and their guests on this first pre-ISE show (show #2 next week!) as we live…

As was pointed out in the previous ‘Welcome to the Mind Shift’ episodes, many types of discussions occur in the audio visual industry – including in-company and client meetings, panels and networking conversations at trade shows, and social media interactions. Over the last few years the AV industry has seen changes and enhancements in technology innovation, approaches and implementation like never before, to go along with these daily discussions.

On this episode, we’ve invited four guests from well-known manufacturers to focus on AV over IP and HDBaseT discussion based on these questions (after guest introductions):

What would you say that you/your company has achieved in terms of industry AV over IP and/or HDBaseT leadership in 2018?

Compare/contrast AV over IP and HDBaseT solutions – what are applications for which one is truly better to use than the other?

The AV over IP vs. HDBaseT wars – is it time to end the madness? Or is this still a true challenge?

And finally, AV industry predictions for 2019 provided by all participants in the podcast.

Sit back, plug in, Welcome to the Mind Shift III (and more to come in 2019) as we live…

Garth Leach – Director of Marketing at ZeeVee, inc.
Brad Price – Senior Product Manager at Audinate
Loren Shaw – Vice President, Marketing at InFocus Corp.

InfoComm 2018 in Las Vegas – what can we say (no, really)? Another big show, true innovation, outstanding events, and the first time for AVIXA. The exhibitors – we have seven of the many on the evening show (we had four on Part 1 of the evening show, along with eight on the daytime Episode 84).

And we continue… 

Garth Leach starts this one off talking about what ZeeVee did at the show along with what took place at the SDVoE booth as ZeeVee is a part of the Alliance. Kaleo talks about what members of the SDVoE Alliance are doing and what it means for the work that he’s doing at AVCO. Garth also talks about Audinate and what’s taking place with SDVoE and the company, and Brad adds some discussion here too.

Brad continues talking about what Audinate did at InfoComm, Dante, audio networking and working with the SDVoE group. He also talks about showing the Dante Domain Manager, network management software that enables user authentication, role-based security and audit capabilities for Dante networks, while allowing seamless expansion of Dante systems over any network infrastructure. He also adds discussion about their AVIO adapters. Michelle then “sets Brad up” here with a security discussion.

Loren finishes the show discussing “the InFocus of today” as he points to Jupiter, the company acquired by InFocus in late 2015, and talks about the new Jupiter PixelNet 2.0. Then, the discussion in what he refers to as “the traditional collaboration side of the house” turns to InFocus’ new wireless presentation system SimpleShare, and finally the company’s main product line – Mondopad. Loren and Corey have an in-depth discussion about the new products in the line.

All of the guests, including those remaining from Part 1 reveal what they “brought to the table” – Alan talks about an excellent conversation he had with AVIXA COO Heidi Voorhees, and the show closes with the remaining guests answering the question ‘how do you live the AV life?’

Sit back, plug in, and we hope you’ve enjoyed all of the pre- and post-InfoComm 2018 exhibitor shows (with your favorite beverage) while we live…
