Hi, my name is Steve Jenkins, and I’m a new account executive here at InGear. I’ve been in the communications industry for the past three years; however, I’m also a technology lover at heart with a history in IT and software training. At InGear, I get the exciting opportunity to combine these two worlds.
As the AV industry converges with IT, it’s creating a lot of opportunity in the space. There are already several different approaches for bringing the two worlds together. I love seeing that, because it means the industry hasn’t stagnated.
To get a better idea of what I mean, compare the AV industry to the smartphone market. What passes for innovation in a smartphone these days — a slimmer design, the removal of a headphone jack, or maybe a new Bluetooth standard? While previously there was a world of difference, iPhones and Android devices are now quite similar.
In AV, however, there is still so much to do and so many things to be excited about. I can’t wait to see what comes next as companies continue to innovate and refine their ideas. Every trade show seems to bring out better implementation and a clearer picture of the future of AV. From what we can see, its future is looking bright.
