Being Seen, Heard and Understood

When it comes to audiovisual technology, it’s all about sight and sound. To make the most of both, InfoComm estimates companies, governments and educators invested USD $114 billion last year alone.

Got Videowall? Now, May be the Time!

Do you recall the first videowalls? Well, they weren’t really video. And the wall? Not so much. They were large screens with banks of slide projectors clicking and whirring away. With a ton of slides and some clever programming “virtual” movement was created on a grand scale. For all the progress large-scale projection technology [...]

Your Conference Room is Like an Aircraft. What else?

When you take a look at your conference room, I’ll bet you’re looking at it in the same frame of mind as you would if you were looking at an aircraft. The aircraft? It flies. What else would you expect it to do? And the conference room? Hey, meetings are held in there. What [...]

Rocking Your AV Like It’s 1999

If you have ever gone out looking at homes and stopped by an open house, maybe you can relate. You go through the front door and find yourself in a time warp. The home’s furnishings, decor, appliances, paint, etc. instantly take you back a decade or two (or three). We often experience the same [...]

Going Beyond Digital Assistants to Get Work Done

Amazon’s Echo and Echo Dot and their voice alter-ego, Alexa, pretty much reached star status over the holidays. The voice-activated devices are very good listeners, and as long as you say the right words, Alexa will carry out your commands for everything from answering questions and playing music to buying stuff off Amazon...or even [...]

Mixing and Matching Your Way to a Fully Digital Courtroom

In early January, tech geeks and gurus headed to Las Vegas for the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). Pretty much the epicenter of what’s new in the consumer electronics market.

Digital Recording

As ubiquitous to the courtroom as judges and their gavels, the court reporters and their steno machines busily recording every word spoken to create a trial’s official transcript. At least they used to. Even as revered as court reporter transcripts are, thousands of courts in the United States and tens-of-thousands of courts throughout the [...]

Not All Sounds Are Created Equal

Think of it as PhotoShop® for sound. Sound equalization is a process used to strengthen or weaken the energy of audio frequencies, maximizing what we want to hear and minimizing what we don’t.

Why the Temperature of Light is a Big Deal

You liked the paint color in the store. Got it home. Not so great. Seems like the same thing happens when it comes to rugs, furniture and even clothing. Looks great here, but not so much there. Relax. It’s not you. It really is the light. Or to be more precise, it’s the temperature of [...]

Managing Projector Image Distortion

Take a look at the image above. Do you see the stone at the center of the arch? You know, the one with the arrow pointing right at it? Well, in the world of architecture, which is several years older than the audiovisual world, they call that center stone (as you can tell from the [...]
