Watch That Ship Sail
We gather some AV professionals (and Matt) together and talk about the latest news and insights within the AV industry.
Theatro, Cisco and Honeywell join forces with the intent to change the future of retail with deskless workforces. Thinking about the design of an open workspace, and utilizing data from products to make the next generation of offices.
VuWall and LG create a partnership for a fully integrated control room solution. Discussing the benefits and detractors of companies coming together for large-scale solutions.
Finally, we look at AV as a service for the future of AV. Why aren’t more integrators getting into a recurring monthly revenue model? How many times do we have to teach you this lesson, old man?

AVWeek started in late July 2011. It is hosted by Tim Albright. Albright started his professional life as a broadcaster in St. Louis. In the audiovisual industry, Tim has worked as a technology manager for Lewis and Clark Community College, control programmer, design consultant, and design engineer. The first episode of AVWeek, episode 0000, was recorded via Skype with two AV pros Albright met via Twitter and a long-time friend. Since that first episode in July 2011, AVWeek has produced a weekly program missing only one week in the first year.
Albright also taught radio and audio production for over 14 years, including introducing podcast production to his students in 2006. He resides on the Illinois side of the St. Louis, Missouri area where he and his wife raise their two children. AVWeek is based, in part, on the TWiT (This Week in Tech) model of podcasts where the host reads a news story and panelists provide their insight, analysis, and opinion on the subject matter.
