Highlights from the InfoComm shows

InfoComm is famous for their huge trade shows.  You can see all of the newest AV and related technology showcased and learn just a ton of new things.  I couldn't go this summer since I was on vacation but I heard it was excellent.

Essentials of the AV Industry

Started taking the Essential of the AV Industry class from InfoComm.  Will be working to get my CTS certification.  That's Certified Technology Specialist for those of you who are not tech nerds.  :-)
