The 2021 Pro AV Technology Outlook moves a step closer to its full release next week, as Installation today unveils the Audio Focus chapter of the report, which is now free to download.
The annual report curates expert commentary from across the AV community on the state of audiovisual technology/systems adoption and deployment across our major industry verticals, and the trends and technologies that are driving innovation.
The Audio Focus section features insight from Futuresource Consulting’s James Kirby, who guides us through the consultancy’s observations of a pro audio sector hit immeasurably hard by pandemic conditions. The live sound sector, with particular emphasis on rental and touring, were among the hardest hit but with vaccine levels on the rise and restrictions in countries beginning to lift, there is growing confidence that there is a clearer path to recovery emerging for most market segments.
We also gather perspective on the pre-, during-, and post-Covid state of the market for pro audio installations from a panel of experts and revisit our analysis of how audio is shaping the sound of the new normal for professional workspaces.
