Your new June edition of Installation magazine is available now in print and digital formats, and it’s a doozy – even if I do say so myself! For access to the digital version, see below.
Post-Covid, AV is, seemingly, the tech tonic every sector requires, administering an electronic energy boost to help alleviate any residual pandemic pain. The hospitality and retail sectors are certainly demanding their doses of AV remedies, with high-end, future-proofed tech helping to revitalise bars, clubs, restaurants, and bricks-and-mortar shopping outlets. Check out our two lead cover-story hospitality features from page 20.
This issue, we also preview InfoComm 2023, and visit Sony’s recently launched Digital Media Production Centre (DMPC) at Pinewood Studios near London. In addition, we’ve features on the ongoing supply chain crisis – our fourth look at this important subject since the start of 2022 – and the dark art of soundproofing. In our expanded installations section, Samsung’s The Wall wows Dubai resort visitors, Harman elevates a new Yokohama location, and AV Stumpfl servers drive Indian Republic Day celebrations. Our Movers & Shakers two-pager highlights picks for Absen, PPDS, Nanolumens, Samsung and Vioso, amongst others.
We have Q&As from Peerless-AV EMEA MD Keith Dutch, who answers questions on his transition from pro cricket to pro AV, whilst looking at company growth and future developments; Graeme Little, head of display UK, Samsung Electronics, who replies to our queries on changes to, and challenges in, the display market; and Blake Augsburger, founder and CEO, LEA Professional, who discusses offshore fishing and new technology.
Insights come from Dave Spence, director of customer and technical services for Datapath, who explains why technology support services are crucial in control room environments; Bang & Olufsen’s global head of enterprise & B2B, John Howard, discussing why the rise of hybrid workers requires truly hybrid work tools; and Martin Izzard, head of media tech at PR and marketing outfit Red Lorry Yellow Lorry, who says we should all stop gatekeeping technology, and come together, in tech-rich creativity. Amen to that!
Enjoy the issue.
