Join Host Corey Moss as he welcomes his guests:
Dan Jackson – Director, Enterprise Technology at Crestron
Wayne Driggers – Channel and Alliance Development at Zoom Video Communications
David Schweer – Director Product Marketing at Prysm
(Devan Gillick of Prysm also joined us).
Corey Crews this one solo, starting the conversation with discussion of Ruben Romero’s Buzz Term of the Week on the last show “AV/IT convergence” and Dan Jackson begins what turns out to be a very insightful discussion along with the other guests. Discussion focuses on work, technology tools, innovation, the experience and more.
Next is discussion of the enterprise end user workforce, the remote worker and how collaboration can reduce geographic boundaries. There’s also mention of that major enterprise corporation that recently brought their employees back to the office, even with all of the enhanced unified communications and collaboration technologies that exist.
Wayne begins the company discussions as he talks about Zoom from their start to now, focusing on the Zoom experience, their user community and the CEO’s very important mantra. Corey makes a couple of mid-show announcements (including some of what The AV Life Crew will be doing at the show), and then continues with Dan Jackson who talks about Crestron Mercury (which launched at ISE) and mass deployments of the product. He talks about how Mercury makes the end user more agile, and how an organization can standardize on the solution. He also discusses a Crestron Mercury announcement that will be made at InfoComm, along with building enterprise meeting rooms with the product. David focuses discussion on the new Prysm Go, which transforms any meeting room into a multi-purpose collaboration room. David also talks about visual collaboration, digital workplace and innovation.
David also discusses presenting at InfoComm Center Stage (“Six Realities Disrupting the Workplace”), along with co-presenting with Dr. Thomas Osborne (“We ARE Saving Lives Here – How the Future of Healthcare Depends on AV Technology”). Wayne talks about the market verticals that Zoom focuses on along with corporate, with focused discussion of healthcare and higher education. Dan talks about Crestron’s flexibility in serving any vertical, and discusses the products and solutions being showcased at the booth, along with a focus on enterprise room solutions at the showrooms which will be at the booth as well. Dan is also presenting at Center Stage (“Voice Control Sounds Better and Better”).
Finally, there’s always some fun that goes on at the show and the guests discuss this as well some of the activities going on at the booth (and of course that after-party which many want to attend).
So sit back, plug in and join us for an excellent conversation on UC, collaboration and InfoComm 2017 as we live…
The AV Life.
