We’ve covered collaboration solutions here at CI pretty extensively lately, but something we’re wondering about is why there’s no one-size-fits-all, or one-size-fits-most at the very least, collaboration solution for customers.

While it’s an exciting time to be a collaboration and workspace integrator, there are so many competing ideas about what today’s workspace clients actually need and see as necessary. The whole “single ecosystem” that huge companies like Microsoft offer doesn’t always work for many clients.

Today, we’ll hear from representatives of two collaboration names you should know: InFocus and Crestron.

On Episode 24 of AV+…

  • Glenn Jystad, director of product marketing for InFocus, and Crestron’s director of cloud solutions Nic Milani weigh-in on on the trend from larger collaboration solutions manufacturer’s trend of providing “single ecosystems” and where that’s both effective and ineffective

Stories Mentioned in this Episode

The Commercial Integrator Podcast

The phrase ‘pro AV’ doesn’t do justice to all of the integration crowd, so we at Commercial Integrator wanted to create a pro AV podcast that speaks to all of those areas (and more!) under the umbrella of commercial tech integration.

The host, web editor Adam Forziati, has a background in radio and is looking forward to providing listeners with an entertaining, informative audio forum for all topics affecting the AV industry.

AV+ Podcast Release Schedule

We plan to release a shorter, single-topic episode once every week or two on Fridays (just like this episode). But at the end of each month, we’ll also drop a longer, in-depth episode of the AV podcast with features like Editor’s Desk, CI Monthly News Spotlight, CI’s Project of the Month, and more.

We hope you’ll share your thoughts on Twitter using the hashtag #AVPlusPod !
