Top Stories of the Week

Here’s What’s Happening Around Commercial Integrator This Week

  • New this year, CI broadens its offering of Deep Dive reports with a dedicated story on the performance-audio market. Thus, in our upcoming May issue, we’ll explore not only line-array speakers, immersive audio and power amps but also audio-over-Ethernet and audio-over-IP. The goal is to apprise AV integrators of burgeoning trends so they can deliver on client expectations and optimize their businesses. CI is asking you — our integrator audience — to take a short, five-minute survey regarding how your business designs, integrates and manages performance-audio products and technologies. Responses will be collected through Wednesday, March 29.
  • The Spring 2023 edition of Collaboration Today & Tomorrow explores the future of technology-infused offices, higher education, healthcare and other industries, and includes action items for integrators and collaboration pros to succeed in this ever-changing industry. Get your copy today!
  • With all the terrible news about layoffs and reductions in force in the commercial AV industry and related technology fields, Commercial Integrator and The IMCCA have partnered to create a “Available For Work” listing of AV/IT talent. We’ve invited affected individuals to share their name, experience, desired next position and contact details. If you’d like to add your name and details to this listing, please go to our webform.

The Commercial Integrator Podcast

The term “pro AV” doesn’t do justice to the whole integration crowd, so we at Commercial Integrator wanted to create a pro AV podcast that speaks to all the areas (and there are many!) under the umbrella of commercial technology integration.

The host, Commercial Integrator editor-in-chief Dan Ferrisi, is looking forward to providing listeners with an entertaining, informative forum for all topics affecting the commercial AV industry.
