The Metaverse and the Future of AV

By Marcella Walsh

It’s the latest buzz word – metaverse. But what is the metaverse and how does it relate to AV? We asked Akintayo Adewole, Creative Technologist at DRKR PXLS and Senior Design Engineer at Verrex; Ivan Collins, CEO and President at Innoface Systems; Ed Haravon, Co-Founder at Get Real XR; and Lyndsae' Peele, Founder & Principal Consultant at Kingdom Vision Consulting and Co-Founder at Zubachee to discuss this topic with moderator, Deborah Jones, AV/IT Sales Manager at the Queen Elizabeth II Centre. Here are some of their thoughts:

  • The metaverse today is in a similar position as the internet was 30 years ago. It’s in its infancy. Now is the time to learn about it to prepare for the future.
  • It will create a sense of connectedness, immersion, and empathy through the use of technology.
  • It will be a path for improved training and education, marketing, healthcare, conferences and more.
  • It will be an enhancement to current solutions, not a replacement.
