Spring Has Sprung!


It’s finally here! With Spring officially arriving on March 20th – & now, with April 1st upon us – it’s time again to look at what’s new in the AV World. Let’s dust-off the cobwebs of old-man Winter & dive into all things shiny & new. For this April Edition of “What’s New in AV”, we are referencing the Sound & Communications article posted on February 28th, 2019. In this story, the NSCA announced its winners of the 5th annual “Excellence in Product Innovation Awards.” FYI – to be eligible to receive this honor, manufacturers must produce low-voltage products for installation by integrators in commercial spaces. Other judging criteria includes end-user experience – taking into consideration scalability, versatility, deployment cost, ease of use, ROI, ADA compliance, energy efficiency, etc. This year’s panel of judges included Mike Abernathy – NSCA’s Director of Business Resources, the Editor of Commercial Integrator, & a panel of AV Integrators from around the U.S.
