Cloud, mist, fog — nope, this isn’t about the weather, it’s about these terms as they apply to computing. Alex Capecelatro (Josh.ai) and Mike Maniscalco join CEDIA’s Dave Pedigo, Walt Zerbe and Ed Wenck to discuss the concepts. Plus, CEDIA’s David Meyer calls in from Down Under to clue us in on the White Papers on HDMI he’s just finished for our members.
“Go listen to live music. I think it will really help you when you’re installing and calibrating your systems.” – Geoff Meads
CEDIA companies seem to include a pretty high percentage of people who’ve been involved in music and/or live sound. How does this inform one’s career as an integrator? What perspectives do those experiences bring to the gig? Our guests include accomplished guitarist/recording engineer and ESPA Executive Director Jeff Gardner, and Geoff Meads, who’s a singer/songwriter/gigging guitarist and web developer (Presto AV) who’s extremely active in the CEDIA universe. (NOTE: We want to hear from YOU about this one, so please take our super-quick survey HERE.)
