Steve Greenblatt Hosts A State of Control, New Show for AVNation

State of Control takes an inside look at AV industry with focus on control, led by Steve Greenblatt, President of Control Concepts

Fair Lawn, NJ—April 23, 2013

On February 27, AVNation debuted the pilot episode of “A State of Control”, the newest in the AVNation suite of audiovisual industry podcasts.  “A State of Control” is a monthly show that focuses on the control side of the AV industry.  The show discusses the technical, relationship, and business side of control system programming along with related topics that include user experience, hardware/software interaction, future trends, and more.  Episodes are hosted by AVNation founder Tim Albright and Steve Greenblatt, President of Control Concepts, a leader in audiovisual systems control since 1997.  Each one hour podcast brings guests from across the industry together to provide insight into both current happenings and evergreen topics concerning the world of audiovisual control systems and programming.

A State of Control fits in with the AVNation portfolio of shows and Tim Albright’s vision for a network that is about the individual voices in the industry.  For Greenblatt, who has been a frequent guest on the AV Nation show, AVWeek, A State of Control is a chance to share his passion for control and his insight and experience working as a programmer, entrepreneur, and leader in the industry.  The show was born out of the idea of sharing knowledge with others inside and outside the industry by creating conversation.

Albright says the show is “a good platform for certain segments of the industry to voice concern, complaints, but also praise for the rest of the industry… for people who deal with systems to flesh out ideas.”  Tim cites the pilot episode, which addresses the Crestron CSP program name change, as an example of how control technology professionals have a unique perspective on an issue that helps their industry colleagues and partners understand the impact of changes within the AV industry.  For Albright, the way that this segment of the industry affects others parallels “how control affects a system.”  The show speaks to that balance, making it appealing across industry segments.

A State of Control, co-hosted by Tim Albright and Steve Greenblatt, has recorded three episodes.  Episodes of A State of Control are available on AV Nation and iTunesSG.
