This was a GREAT article! 

Should the answer be to change the industry as a whole? The idea would be to start including these concepts as one. When folks are learning about routing protocols, perhaps they should be learning about video transport protocols? I think the shift into more of a mindset that these disciplines are more similar than they are disparate makes the most sense in my mind. 

I guess the other alternative is to make everyone an absolute specialist which is also an extreme. 

Interested to hear thoughts on this!

This couldn't be a more hot topic for me. Every UC company tries to capture all of the business they can by making their ecosystem work flawlessly with itself. Additionally, they can be slow to add features that allow compatibility and integration. These two factors really play a role in making the move towards agnostic systems much more difficult. Does this really just make the case for the integrator?

Recently, I just highlighted on these KSA's that AV will have to become more dynamic.  AV has been fighting with IT about this shift since, 2008 - well it's here!    

Hey Guy, thanks for the comment! I am trying hard to get AV and IT to work together in perfect harmony. Hopefully, roles like this will help the industry shift focus to a more 'personal' AV/IT experience for all!

This is great insight! I wonder how much of those "interim" technologies that were meant to supplement during COVID have made there way into the pre-pandemic broadcast strategies. What comes to mind to me is the cameras... Traditionally you see cameras in broadcast environments that you wouldn't see elsewhere - size, capabilities etc... but in my ignorance I'm starting to think; Are the smaller more capable cameras becoming so useful that they will displace those bigger traditional cameras that you see everywhere? If not, what is the hold up? Investment? Learning curve on the new devices? 

If I use a news team as an example, the mobility that some of these devices (and price I would imagine) offer would seem to be a huge selling point. Am I way off base here?

Awesome! Thanks for that!

Wow this is super cool! It's somewhat like the idea of Bluetooth wayfinding. From what I'm gathering here, it would actually be interesting to see the two in tandem. For example, when the person finds the item on the kiosk that they need, they would then use the walmart app on their phone to have it "guide" them like a gps, to the exact location. This would also open up the a highly-specific revenue stream for the Walmart. If you think about how you are now guiding people to a location, you then know what they also pass to get there. Using that "path" you could send the customer ads and deals on products that they will surely see on their way to make their purchase. Cant wait to see what comes of this!

Lulia, Institutions have come a long way when it comes to cybersecurity. I remember when my friends at college first got a high-speed shared connection in the dorm rooms. We were all abusing the heck out of it, bandwidth throttling, DDOS’ing others on the network and just causing general chaos. Why? Because no one was protecting the network! It’s interesting now that we have come so far to include AV devices on that network as well. This makes me wonder if there are a group of folks, just like I was, doing the same thing to the AV devices. I wonder what sort of measures these institutes are taking to ensure the students themselves don’t take control like I did with these AV devices.

I love this marriage of eSports and live streaming! I do have a question about the 1ms lag times for the stream though. To me, this is problematic because since the early days, think 1990’s we were introducing a much-needed delay to the streams. This is because of cheating and “screen sniping”. Obviously this is much more difficult in a live setting but it still needs to be there for the aforementioned potential issues. Is this still the case or are the streams being sent in realtime? 

Thanks!
