Understanding Tariffs and the Effects on the A/V Industry

By: Brooke Walters, Corporate Marketing Manager at Ford Audio-Video We have a potential mess on our hands, and it falls under the specter of imposing tariffs. It is no secret that the AV industry sources products and components from overseas and the largest supplier of those is China. Manufacturers who source products from China have already been hit by tariff increases ranging from 10 percent to 25 percent. But the looming tariff proposed for February 2019 is yet another 25-percent increase and that would hit a much broader swath of Chinese-sourced products. File this under “breaking news”.  As I am writing this

LED on a Global Scale

By Alan C. Brawn CTS, DSCE, ISF-C It’s safe to say that we live in the day and age of LED on a global scale. This tiny illumination technology has evolved and replaced more conventional means of visual mechanics in our lives. In the wonderful world of AV, LED is most noticeable in displays. It gained fame as a backlight for ubiquitous LCD displays, but today the most visible application is direct view LED (dvLED). While dvLED technology has been around since the late 1990s, it is only over the last few years that we have seen its popularity explode.

Classic Cars Converge with New LED Videowall for Museum Goers

One of our latest projects was a newly constructed museum showcasing the passion of a small town in Central Texas– classic cars. To complement the collection, Taurus Technologies enlisted the assistance of Premier Mounts in order to find a solution for a unique accent wall.

This was incredibly significant as the wall is nearly 20 feet off the ground. Whereas a typical wall would normally let gravity align the mount itself, our Convergent Series features multiple points of adjustment for easy

6 Considerations When Making a Mounting Solution Purchase Decision

In terms of purchasing, to buy or not to buy is not the most important question; since in most cases, that decision has already been made. The real question is “what to buy?”, and more importantly, why a product was chosen. If all things are equal it logically becomes a simple issue of price and availability, but that is an erroneous assumption and proper product evaluations are needed, especially in the world of AV (and mounts in particular). Ultimately it boils down to the old adage, that you get what you pay for. The truly cheap mounts lack key attributes

Some individuals will say that the experience alone, being at the right place at the right time, justifies the ticket prices individuals pay to attend such grand events. As a member of the AV community, we strongly believe that the behind the scenes crew involved with professional audio-visual services are justifying said ticket costs. When you
