    Rants and rAVes — Episode 918: Did You Know ViewSonic Made Projectors and Collaboration Boards?

    Rants and rAVes — Episode 918: Did You Know ViewSonic Made Projectors and Collaboration Boards?

    I have to be perfectly honest with you. Before deciding to do a podcast with ViewSonic’s Ryan Strayer, I had no clue that ViewSonic even made projectors or had a line of interactive flat-panel displays (aka Collaboration Boards). Maybe I am too occupied at shows like InfoComm, ISE and DSE to do and see everything, but today I did some research and then called Ryan. And, what I learned is that ViewSonic is one of only two display manufacturers that makes everything — monitors, projectors, interactive flat panels, wireless collaboration devices and collaboration boards. Did you know? Listen up!

    Rants and rAVes — Episode 917: What, Where, Who and Why is Stem Audio a Thing?

    A start-up from a bunch of audio engineers debuted at InfoComm earlier this year under the moniker, Stem Audio Touting an ecosystem approach to solving audio quality, connectivity and usability in UCC spaces, Stem launched a family of 5 products, a wall-mount, table-top and ceiling-mount mic/speaker that connects via USB or “the network” a touch-screen controller and a Hub. It’s secret-sauce, if you will, is its RoomDesign management software platform that lets you design, build, quote, guides you through set-up and even certifies room sound quality. And, it became available yesterday, via any web browser, for you to use to build, spec and order a Stem Audio system.
    With that news in mind, Gary reconnected with Stem’s CEO, Jacob Marash, to explain their launch plan. Listen and give it a try yourself: https://www.stemaudio.com/roomdesign/

    Rants and rAVes — Episode 915: An AVaaS Videocast

    Rants and rAVes — Episode 915: An AVaaS Videocast

    AVaaS isn’t new; in fact, we’ve been writing and talking about it here at rAVe since 2016 — it’s just new in AV. What?

    Ok, well, aaS (as a service) is the ecosystem of the entire software world — nearly nothing is purchased anymore, its’ “rented” but, it’s rented with the understanding that that it (the rental fee) includes upgrades, improvements (bug-fixes) and compatibility/scalability. But, in AV, we don’t do this. Systems are installed/integrated and then, we walk away. Well, sort-of. The good AV integrators walk away but sell RMM (remote monitoring and management) or, at the very least, service contacts to keep it “up-and-operating.”

    But, the promise of AVaaS — something that’s just around the corner – is that in addition to managing the system, remotely, and, as such, setting up data analytics to predict likely system problems, we also offer the client the ability to upgrade it, indefinitely – as long as they pay the monthly “aaS-fee.”

    Don’t understand this? Or, want to learn more, here’s one opportunity. Gary was joined with Legrand AV’s Scott Lowder and Mark Tracy to talk about RMM, AVaaS and what the opportunities are for both the integrator and the client. And, if you still want more AVaaS, register for Gary Kayye’s FREE Webinar on Monday, November 4th at 2PM EST here — it includes 1 AVIXA CTS RU too.
