Is WOW the Right Word? The Lack of Innovation at InfoComm 2015
Dan Newman, an independent marketing/strategy consultant for several integration firms and manufacturers throughout the industry offers his less-than-sunny position on this year,Aeos InfoComm. Though there was record attendance, incredible engagement and usable technology to fill needs, Newman decided to focus on what wasn,Aeot there.-* There are also some very well thought out and well written comments in response to this article offering the other side of the coin for Newman,Aeos claims; including one from AVNation.tv,Aeos own Michael Shinn.

Where the industry will wind up in a few years who knows for sure, but right now many feel projection has run its course for the average end-user. That may be true. One thing that was clear from this year,Aeos InfoComm was that projection is a long ways from being completely dead.
