AV Community Reflects on Steve Jobs’s Legacy

On Thursday, October 6, the audio video industry converged in Tampa for the AVI-SPL Technology Expo. Less than a day after the news broke of Steve Jobs’s death, the visionary of Apple was on everyone’s mind. Talking with FOX Tampa Bay, AVI-SPL’s CEO John Zettel reflects on the impact Jobs’s left on business communication technology – making video conferencing convenient with Apple’s FaceTime. Cisco’s Ashley Tokotch and AMX’s Brion Hanlon also talk about how their lives run more efficiently because of Apple.

Apple’s New Tablet, the iPad, for AV

iPad The technophiles, especially Apple groupies, have been eagerly waiting for (and speculating about) the official announcement about Apple’s new tablet computer. Today, Steve Jobs, along with a slew of Apple executives and developers, unveiled the iPad. With a starting price of $499, this sleek tablet could make a big impact on the AV industry.

A few uses:

  • In conference rooms instead of significantly-more-expensive touch panel displays (with the right software- perhaps with the newly released Crestron XPanel for Mac?)
  • In classrooms replacing textbooks, scientific calculators, pocket translators, calendars and desktop computers with one device
  • For presenters, iWork – Keynote allows users to present natively by connecting to a projector

What other uses can you think of?
