BYU Museum Tour for AV Week

Listen Technologies Corporation increased awareness of the AV community both within the company and the community through its InfoComm AV Week activities.

AV Week is an annual event sponsored by InfoComm International, intended to promote the audio-visual industry and its importance in the daily lives of consumers. AV Week was held this year from October 19 through 23. To prepare for AV Week, Listen obtained proclamations of “AV Week? from the Utah State Governor as well as the Salt Lake County Mayor; the company then announced a series of events to take place throughout the week.

A webinar hosted by Listen was held on October 20 and featured Frank Culotta, the head of InfoComm’s Independent Representative Council, with Alan Geer, Principal of Audio Geer in California. “We had attendance by 35 representatives in the USA and Canada,? reports Kristin Rector, Listen’s Director of Marketing Communications, “and at least one rep joined InfoComm as a result of the webinar.?

A public event on Friday, October 23 featured a tour of a new exhibit at the Brigham Young University Museum of Art. The exhibit, titled “Mirror Mirror: Contemporary Portraits and the Fugitive Self? included several displays utilizing AV technologies. The tour was conducted using Listen’s portable tour group listening system. Museum curator Jeff Lambson, who had never used a portable tour group system before, was delighted with its ease of use. “It was nice to have everyone be able to hear me no matter where I was,? Lambson said. “I could even talk while I was walking from exhibit to exhibit, and I didn’t have to look back at the group or talk loudly in order to be heard.? The tour also picked up some last-minute attendees who were planning to visit the exhibit and were curious about the tour system being used. “These end users who had never seen a portable audio system were also impressed with their ability to hear everything that was said by the tour leader,? reported Ms. Rector.

Other activities conducted by Listen during AV week included a lunch-and-learn session for employees, with a report on the Syn-Aud-Con conference and a lesson on sound reinforcement technologies; an employee “game show?, AV Jeopardy, was also held during the week.

“Through our activities, we were able to provide some education on the AV industry not only to our own associates, but to people in the community who might not otherwise have thought about AV technologies,? said Ms. Rector. “We strongly encourage other companies in our industry to participate in next year’s InfoComm AV Week.?
