    This article is provided by Commercial Integrator   AVB technology is another one of those great industry acronyms we all (should) know and love. It stands for Audio Video Bridging, and is technology based on IEEE 802.1 standards that have been developed by a consortium of experts in the professional audio industry. CI has asked an experience integrator, Fred Harding of distributor Capitol Sales, to define AVB and as a failsafe, Lee Minich, Marketing Work Group chair for the AVnu… View this story

    This article is provided by Commercial Integrator   Looking out to the future is an ambitious goal. Many weeks when you are leading an integration business you are just trying to make it to Friday. However, when we do lift our head from the day-to-day for even a few minutes it doesn’t take long to realize how fast things change. Remember when we made money selling projectors? It wasn’t that long ago, but today it’s almost impossible. Remember when proprietary… View this story

    This article is provided by Commercial Integrator   Since leaving InfoComm on my way to whatever is next I’ve had the opportunity to do some great things. I’ve gotten to speak at events, serve as a panelist, attend sales meetings, consult, and as a freelancer been both a tech and manager at some live events. These opportunities have allowed me to see a common thread, or challenge, and that is: planning for the future while balancing the business present. Following… View this story

    This article is provided by Commercial Integrator   Maybe no one has so profoundly summed up the essence of building brand loyalty than Simon Sinek in his Ted Talk, “Start with Why”. If you haven’t watched it before, I recommend it highly. There are many great Ted Talks, but this is one that has stuck with me ever since I saw it. But I digress… Simon notes people don’t buy what you do or how you do it, but they… View this story

    This article is provided by Commercial Integrator   When we discuss the ways that AV can become more IT, it is important to emphasize that the transition to becoming more IT is not one that should take AV away from its core competencies. I have had a lot of discussions lately with some of the best minds in AV and we seem to all agree that we (AV) need to continue to promote our value. This is to say that… View this story

    This article is provided by Commercial Integrator   I can’t even begin to say how great this year’s InfoComm was.  After a couple of decades in the AV industry, you would think attending the same show every year would wear on you, but it actually invigorates me. When I see so many friends, colleagues and clients in one place I end up so excited and optimistic about the year ahead, and especially about the future of our industry. This year… View this story

    This article is provided by Commercial Integrator   “You’re fired!” A phrase made famous by Donald Trump on the popular TV show The Apprentice, but also one of the more difficult tasks that a business owner has to perform. One of the popular mantras of today’s business world is effective company culture. How to build that perfect environment that allows all of your employees to work in a nirvana-like state of satisfaction is a question that many business owners wrestle… View this story

    This article is provided by Commercial Integrator   Hey integrators, what if I told you there is a question about your business that you have to ask yourself if you ever want to achieve your optimal level of success? Then, what if I told you I would be willing to bet that you don’t ask yourself this question today? Would you want to know what the question is? Of course you do ... and I’m going to tell you right… View this story

    This article is provided by Commercial Integrator   The integration business can be a fickle place. Factors such as seasonality, dependence on government spending and the way the overall economy can influence spending can present unique challenges for businesses. With the potential for such volatility, commercial integrators are faced with cash flow issues. Most CIs have accounting departments, but cash flow is a different animal. Cash flow is unique because an organization can be generating strong profits but have no… View this story

    This article is provided by Commercial Integrator   It only took the industry a few years to figure out how to utilize the iPad in a meaningful way to improve the user experience of audio-visual technology. This isn’t a knock on AV, its just a fact. Most of the early iterations of iPad control and integration left something to be desired. The good news is we have moved past that. Today, Android and iOS are part of our life. In… View this story
