AVI-SPL’s Dick Tollberg Named a 2018 AVIXA Award Winner

AVIXA has named Dick Tollberg, senior design engineer for AVI-SPL, a 2018 winner of its Harald Thiel Volunteer of the Year Award.  The recognition was part of AVIXA’s announcement that it would recognize its 2018 winners at InfoComm in Las Vegas.

From the AVIXA press release:

One of AVIXA’s most widely accepted standards is AVIXA V202.01:2016 Display Image Size for 2D Content in Audiovisual Systems (DISCAS). One of DISCAS’ earliest developers and ongoing champions is longtime AVIXA volunteer Tollberg. He played a critical role on the task group that created the standard and spearheaded the creation of the DISCAS “calculator” — an online tool for crunching the numbers necessary for creating an optimal viewing experience.

Tollberg and the other winners will be celebrated on InfoComm 2018’s Center Stage at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Wed., June 6, at 4 p.m.

If you plan on attending InfoComm 2018, you can register using AVI-SPL code AVI159.

It also includes a Q&A with Tracie Bryant-Cravens, AVI-SPL VP of Sales for State/Local Government & Education.
