Morning Keynote: Perspective on the AV Economy

A fireside chat with AVIXA’s senior director of Market Intelligence, Sean Wargo, and AVNation’s Tim Albright. From global supply chain issues to labor shortages, there isn't an industry that has not felt an impact since the pandemic began. The AV industry has benefited from the world learning to collaborate via video, translating to the need for more advanced enterprise-wide unified communications in every vertical market. Remote deployment, management, monitoring, and data collection have become essential in this new era. Wargo and Albright will bring all of this and more into perspective as it relates to the AV economy now and in the future.

The State of AV and IT

For more than 20 years, the industry has been chanting convergence. While some say AV and IT have fully converged, for others, neither the physical infrastructure nor are the AV or IT departments there yet. This panel of subject matter experts will dig into where networked audio, video, and control are today and preview where they see AV over IP headed in the next two to three years and what challenges the industry faces.

The Future of Work and Learning

Collaboration is the cornerstone of workplace and education environments, and it's the charter of the audiovisual industry to provide solutions to enable the next-gen experience. From cameras, microphones, and speakers to a myriad of displays and content distribution, workplaces, schools, and universities rely on a unified approach to deliver an easy-to-use and truly equitable in-person and remote experience. This panel will discuss today's technology, work culture, pedagogy, and workflows and what is coming next. Learn about the systems you will be using and installing next year.
