CEDIA Day One: Insights, A/V and New Partnerships

CEDIA Day One: Insights, A/V and New Partnerships

The point driven home in CEDIA’s opening keynote is a widespread mindset amongst attendees—the velocity of data is increasing and will always continue to increase.

This idea was expressed by Shelly Palmer, a strategic adviser and technology consultant known for his speaking engagements and television work with major networks such as Fox and NBC Universal.

“Think about this,” says Palmer to a packed, attentive crowd. “You are experiencing the slowest rate of technological change that you will experience in your life.” Palmer’s keynote speech kicked off this year’s CEDIA, a trade show event for integrators that zeroes in on the rapid rate in which technology accelerates.

Stunning home theater projection systems, exemplary audio solutions and strategic automation partnerships dominate the show floor, proving the future has already arrived and will continue to break down barriers for years to come.

TecHome is exploring various innovations at CEDIA and sharing them with you, our builder audience, most notably in the A/V realm.
