How Everyone is Connected Through User Experience

User experience (UX) is quite the buzz word these days in the AV industry. User experience not only describes the seamless operation of an AV system addressing needs and pain points of users, it also captures the emotion a user feels when utilizing the space and interacting with technology. User experience is built upon a user interface that is inviting, modern, consistent, reliable, and easy to operate. However, user experience also takes into consideration the entire process that a user undergoes when working with technology, appreciating the finer details of the installation and room aesthetics, and feeling of comfort in the environment. Care, consideration, high quality, and attention to detail are the underlying factors that contribute to the feel that a quality user experience embodies.

The Importance of Introducing Young People to the AV Industry

While attending several AV industry events this year, I have been witness to some consistent remarks that particularly resonated with me. All were constructive in their intent, yet the associated emotion ranged the gamut of curiosity, concern, and alarm. Each of these instances stemmed from a basic realization that there were no new faces in the room and the average age in the industry is increasing rather than decreasing each year.

Simply put, where are the young people in the AV industry?

Engineering AV Control Like a Software Developer

With the growing belief in the diminishing value of custom AV systems, control system programming and control system programmers are finding their place in the industry being seriously challenged. Despite the fact that the AV integration industry can tailor and personalize solutions to offer a user experience that addresses specific user needs, many technology managers are opting for the consistency, simplicity, value, and ease of deployment found in configured or even closed systems that involve limited or no customization. What is behind this shift in mindset from custom to standard solutions?
