InfoComm is starting up. The show floor opens this morning but AV professionals began showing up in Las Vegas last week. Classes have been going on since Saturday, and Tuesday was a great day for them.
InfoComm calls it “Super Tuesday” because it is the one day of this week where there are more hours of training and seminars going on than any one person can possible hope to attend. There are classes on standards, IoT, and best practices. Then there was the one I was involved with – Future Trends.
My session was “What AV Tech is Already Dead.” Sort of the ying to the rest of the presenters’ yang. I stated that VGA, control processor boxes, and 4K are already dead. On stage to debate with me, and tell me why I am wrong, were AVNation’s own Josh Srago, Bradford Benn, and Dawn Meade. The reason for choosing those three were they represent consultants, manufacturers, and integrators respectively. Stay tuned as we recorded this session and will be producing it as an AVNation Special podcast.
Tuesday evening gave us the opening keynote and reception for InfoComm. The awards ceremony for this year’s awards took place during that time. Josh Srago and Kelly Perkins both are taking home Young AV Professional awards from Las Vegas, Jeremy Caldera instructor of the year, Hope Roth and Christa Bender the volunteer, and Ms. Shure the Women in AV Award.
