In 2002 the InfoComm show announced that IT and AV were converging. Today, those two worlds have converged on a variety of levels; both technologically and economically. Out of this coming together AVNation created the IT AV podcast.
This monthly podcast is hosted by AVNation founder, Tim Albright. He gathers the brightest minds that cross the line between IT and AV. The stories that are covered by IT AV are ones that impact both the audiovisual industry as well as the IT networks on which they live. Those topics include security, AVoIP (audiovisual signals over IP networks), service based programs, remote access and monitoring, as well as network best practices.
Tim Albright hosts this monthly program. Albright is the founder and president of AVNation Media. He has taught InfoComm classes on AV over IP, control programming, and emerging technologies. He also hosts a number of other AVNation media podcasts. If you are interested in being a guest on IT AV email Tim Albright at firstname.lastname@example.org
