Editor’s Note [by Cindy Davis]

STRAIGHT FROM THE SOURCE From full audio, video, and room control systems with far-reaching cloud applications, to solutions that offer control and monitoring of specific in-room systems, “AV control” has morphed, converged, and redefined what lives on the network. The AV Tech Manager’s Guides are more often written as analysis, but in this Guide to AV Control, we decided to ask AV/IT manufacturers and solution providers to share their insights, opinions, and product roadmaps. Businesses wouldn’t thrive if there were only two choices, two voices, or two valid opinions—or even two correct ways to achieve the same goal. Given the format of the Guide, we did not challenge the statements presented; instead, we want to provide some food for thought as you plan for your next refresh, retrofit, or new build project. We’re introducing you to each of our interviewees to provide context. If you haven’t met these folks, we recommend taking a moment to reach out, or book an appointment at the InfoComm Show, which is just around the corner (June 8–14 in Orlando). You’ll find you have a lot in common and have a great deal to learn from one another’s point of view. We hope you find value in these perspectives.
