The January 2021 edition of Installation is available now – right here. Boasting 60 pages of essential features, interviews, viewpoints and news – including a 36-page education supplement – the issue is the first of our hybrid publication schedule digital editions (for further info *see below). As this is a digital-only edition, we’ve also made it easier for you to read content ‘off-page’, with links to web-based versions of articles, some of which are more comprehensive write-ups where the available page space wasn’t sufficient.
The education supplement is packed with education sector commentary, articles, case studies and news. We’ve assembled a who’s who of industry talent, with commentaries from the University of Portsmouth’s Pippa Bostock on the institution’s soon-to-open XR centre; Mark Perrett, PTS account manager, on the sector’s potential; plus further insight from Shure’s Chris Merrick, Promethean’s Jim Wallis and ProAV’s Shannon Brooksby.
In addition, we’ve spoken to leading manufacturers, integrators, consultants and stakeholders for three key education-focused features: 2020’s legacy; BYOD and security; and the importance of AV tech for the sector. Plus, there are case studies from Crestron, Shure and Sennheiser. Elsewhere, we hear from AVIXA and Cedia, with additional commentary from AV consultants Octavius RE, Mimi Hearing Technologies, and Stefanie Corinth, senior VP EMEA sales at Sharp/NEC.
Finally, as part of our mission to ensure we’re covering all things audio-visual, we look at the rise and rise of discrete AV, and how it’s migrating from residential to commercial. Enjoy!
*There are now eight standard Installation publications per year, with one print / digital publication and one digital-only edition in each quarter. Our digital-only editions bring you the latest projects, tech, and solutions being deployed in specific vertical markets, with supplements dedicated to the key sectors. As quarterly publications, the print editions offer deeper and more expansive coverage of the AV marketplace, focusing on specific technology areas such as digital signage, collaboration, and projection. Our next print edition, cover dated February 2021 (also available digitally, of course), will be available later this month, and is a digital signage special, with a bonus residential AV section.
