    This article is provided by Commercial Integrator   Having been around the AV integration industry for some time, I have witnessed a lot of change—from rapidly eroding product margins to CRT becoming Plasma becoming LCD becoming LED and so much more. We are, without question, in a time of constant change and with that constant change comes both opportunity and challenges for integration businesses. Back in the day when profit margins on hardware were a little more lucrative, our industry… View this story

    After repeatedly retraining a young apprentice on the same task, I discovered myself rapidly losing the grasp of whatever social skills I had retained. We had been working together for weeks, yet he still refused to follow my simple directions. He insisted on doing a routine task in any way other than the one I had shown him. Nearing the end of my rope, I attempted to redirect his efforts one last time. However, he interrupted my coaching with two… View this story

    Roland Professional A/V, in cooperation with its southeast regional rep HWPco, recently took over two rooms at the SoundCheck Nashville rehearsal facility for two days of hands-on demonstrations of its audio and video production solutions. A bit of snow and freezing rain was slowing Nashville traffic but encouraged early arrivals, with the first of a steady stream of A/V professionals arriving from two states away well before the official start of the first day. Across both days, over 50 media… View this story

Skills of this type are great for musicians who sing or play an instrument, but can they help a sound mixer? Mixing live and/or recorded sound requires a different set of critical listening skills - skills that are often acquired from many years of experience, by trial and error, or from being… View this story

    This article is provided by Rane Corporation.   Wye-connectors (or “Y”-connectors, if you prefer) should never have been created. Anything that can be hooked-up wrong, will be. You-know-who said that, and she was right. A wye-connector used to split a signal into two lines is being used properly; a wye-connector used to mix two signals into one is being abused and may even damage the equipment involved. Here is the rule: Outputs are low impedance and must only be connected… View this story
