A brand new season of The AV Life begins with the new Crew III – Katye McGregor Bennett, Justin Watts and Megan Powers (all a part of Crew II) are back, along with the new Crew members (they’ll be joining us next time). The show begins with Margot and Megan who joined us to discuss the AV industry organization (InfoComm International) re-branding news announced on June 13th about the new organization AVIXA, the AudioVisual and Integrated Experience Association. Listen in for this discussion.
Corey and the Crew then talk with the guests Rich, George and Elizabeth about what’s taking place in their world. Elizabeth talks about what she does, Rich talks about a few things taking place at NEC Display Solutions of America including his new role at the company, and he also talks about NY Digital Signage Week coming up at the end of October. George talks about numerous developments at FSR, including technology that the company offers in-line with the latest Apple phone announcement. George also talks about a special delicacy that was discussed on another podcast a while back, some of you may know what that is.
