Apples, Oranges, Grapefruit
Whether you are outside enjoying the end of summer or in the office, it’s time to get the latest news coming out of the residential side of the AV industry. Joining us this week is Crestron’s Executive Vice President of Residential John Clancy, ‘The Dude’ from Just Add Power Taft Stricklin, and Vice President of Business Development Joe Whitaker.
We start off by looking at the story of Pair Electronics and how they mean to leave a lasting legacy for their business. Many businesses, not just ones inside the AV space, start off as family businesses. Such is the case of Pair Electronics as told by Jason Pair as the family business went to him in the mid-1990s. As companies grow and continue to persevere, there are some places where control needs to be delegated and spread out. How do businesses bring the right people in to ensure that there is a place in the future? With the prevalence of streaming platforms and new services cropping up every day,
Anthony Savona writes to ask if integrators are the new Stream Police. Streaming is one of the major home theater trends in the last few years, but building a dedicated space that can host every platform easily is a challenge. So is there a holy grail solution waiting to be found? How can integrators navigate this to get what their clients are looking for?
And while he’s with us, we take a minute to talk with Taft Stricklin about his upcoming guitar giveaway at CEDIA Expo 2022. During the show from September 29 – October 1, attendees will have the chance to win one of three Epiphone Slash Les Paul guitars in a drawing. This is in conjunction with the Guitars for Vets nonprofit organization that seeks to provide relief to veterans through music lessons. We ask him how this got started and what those coming to the show can do for G4V.
