Projection or Flat Panel: The Dilemma

In a Wall Street Journal article it was claimed that on average we spend 8 hours a day in front of some type of screen each and every day. If we think about it and consider our smart phones, tablets, computer screens, televisions at home, digital signage, digital cinema, and even throw in the ubiquitous GPS for good measure, the claim seems not out of reason. To say the very least, displays are at the center of our lives and warrant an in-depth look at the types of displays that are so central to what we do and in some

Do It Right, Not Over: A Mount is a Mount, But a Mounting Solution Delivers ROI

Conventional wisdom says that a display mount is just a mount, so taking the path of least resistance–buying a mount based on price– is the shortest distance between two points. After all, hanging a single flat panel monitor on the wall isn’t that hard and it doesn’t require a whole lot of pre-planning, special equipment, or significant technical expertise. The mount just holds the TV to the wall anyway, so cheapest equals best and on to the next project. However, things aren’t always that cut and dry. Suppose you have a retail window space to fill with a large video

It has evolved in short order from a basic telecommunications device to a full-blown computer, portable videoconferencing device, and lifestyle “necessity” that everyone is seemingly

Written By: Alan C. Brawn CTS, DSCE, DSDE, DSNE, DCME, ISF-C In the wonderful world of commercial AV, one of the battles we face every day is commodity thinking and finding ways to differentiate ourselves and add value in the marketplace.

Most of us who have been around for any period of time know that this is not the way it really works and in many cases a plug and
