Real-Time Media is Changing the Way We Create and Manage Content
What we used to call “interactive” is now something more like inter-reactive. Where previously gestures or touch would trigger specific, pre-programmed reactions from content, now we’re in the “real-time” era. What does that mean? That means the content is “generative,” or it grows and morphs in response to various sensor inputs, which can include motion, heat-mapping, and other analytics, sound, video and light.

Research Shows Plenty of Treasure in Pro AV
If AVIXA’s Industry Outlook and Trends Analysis (IOTA) report were a treasure map, it would have “X” inked all over it. Global revenue is rising quickly and while some solutions and verticals are more dynamic than others, pro AV stands out for the many different high-growth niches it has to offer.
Market Minute: What do Pro-AV Companies Need to do to Stay Competitive?
In this episode, we are joined by AVIXA Economic Analyst Peter Hansen, to learn what AVIXA’s Macro-Economic Trends Analysis (META) found about larger trends in the AV industry, and how even small AV companies can compete in this market. Quality and customer service are the best ways to differentiate from the competition.
