About the Contributors

Creating a book of this nature required a first-of-its-kind industry collaborative effort. Professionals from every aspect of the industry (in many cases, those who would be competitors outside of the conference room) sat together over a two-day period and planned this remarkable volume. Integrators, designers, and end users — typically coming to the project from differing perspectives — made a commitment that transcended their usual business interests. They joined forces, putting the best interest of the AV industry first. This book is the result of that effort.
