About Cristiano Mazza, CTS

For the past 20 years, I have been actively involved in this dynamic Industry, witnessing its incredible evolution firsthand.   I started my career as a salesman, working to understand the intricacies of audio and video market. Through education, I climbed the ranks and am now proud to be a partner and Director of Products at Discabos Group Brasil, a leading value-added distributor that supplies products and services to audio and video integrators. My responsibilities are relationships with manufacturers, forecasting, logistics, and product development.   In addition to my role at Discabos, I have been an active member of Avixa for the past decade, immersing myself in this vibrant community of professionals. In 2018, I earned my Certified Technology Specialist (CTS), further solidifying my expertise in the AV industry. I am very proud of it. Four years ago, I received a humbling invitation to join the Avixa Foundation as a Director. Today, I proudly serve as its President, a position that fills me with immense pride and a deep sense of purpose.  For those unfamiliar with the Avixa Foundation, it is a non-profit organization dedicated to encourage the talent pathway and to fostering the careers within the AV industry. We are here to create the futures leaders of our industry. To achieve this, we have assembled an extraordinary team of staff and directors who work to develop activities and programs aligned with our strategic goals.

In July 2023 I began to command the operation of DUCaaS, an AV technical services outsourcing company that is part of the Discabos Group. I am concerned about the future of the AV industry regarding two important topics: Education and Sustainability.

In November 2023 I started my role at SAVe, as Ambassador for Brazil. I feel a deep sense of purpose in being part of SAVe.

I am marathon runner for pleasure, currently live in São Paulo, Brazil, with my wonderful wife Patricia and children Luca and Bianca.

Excelente artículo.
Tenemos muchos desafíos por delante. Es importante resaltar que nuestra industria se basa en la tecnología lo que presupone avance tecnológico e intercambio de equipos. Por tanto, la preocupación o responsabilidad no es sólo del fabricante, sino también del diseñador o integrador que diseña la solución para su cliente. ¿Estamos siendo responsables en nuestras acciones? ¿Recomendamos productos que tengan una vida útil más larga o sean capaces de actualizarse con el tiempo? Esto evita el desperdicio de equipos y materias primas.
Necesitamos sentirnos responsables de los problemas para poder buscar soluciones juntos.
felicidades amigo @Juan Carlos Medina, CTS

I was very happy to read this post. It is a subject that I really like and I dedicate part of my weekly hours to it. I understand that an apprenticeship program is the future for us to maintain the grow and development of workforce in the AV market.

I have a history of learning within Discabos Group, where we sponsor an audiovisual course within a community school for low-income people in a region of São Paulo, Brazil. The course lasted 3 months and it was very interesting to see the dedication and interest of the young people. In the end we had 90% approval with a positive evaluation of 85% of the participants.

Finally, for those interested, we opened 1 apprentice position within the Discabos Group. There were 5 candidates and we ended up hiring one of them, Isaias.

Excellent boy, very dedicated (Every day he took 3 buses to get to the company, spent almost 5 hours a day on public transport). After about 6 months he got a steady job close to home and ended up leaving the company. We were very happy and rooted for his development within the market.
