New Ideas on Display with USAV
USAV, a group of integrators, manufacturers and service providers with a shared passion for the audio-visual industry, gives ScanSource the platform to collaborate with partners at events throughout the year. After being purchased by PSA Security Network in 2017, this year’s Spring Integrator Meeting offered a crossover and convergence of the audio-visual and security industries.
The show floor was lively, loud and packed full of exhibitors and integrators eager to learn more about the latest industry offerings. With over 100 exhibitors, there was something for everyone in attendance. From seamless video walls to facial recognition software and even robotic security sentries, the future of AV and security integration was on full display. As a trusted advisor to our customers in both the audio-visual and security spaces, ScanSource is at the forefront of offering our partners fully integrated solutions to meet end-customers’ needs.
There was no shortage of lively discussion, speaking sessions and industry panels during the week, but one theme seemed more prevalent than others – the idea of “AV anywhere”. A thriving market exists around high-end custom AV applications for board rooms and conference spaces, but customers are looking for similar experiences throughout all their shared meeting spaces. Constant access to technology has shifted customer needs, and there’s a growing expectation that all members of an organization should have access to tools like video conferencing, wireless screen sharing and real-time collaboration. With several solutions offering lower total cost of ownership for customers, meeting these demands is now within reach for partners of all sizes.
As always, the show provided valuable industry insights, expert input and partner networking. We participate to bring this knowledge into the channel and leverage our relationships to bring best-in-breed solutions to our partners.
