Using validated sound-therapy techniques applied to dynamic tinnitus tracking, iTinnitus Solutions can improve the degree of perceived tinnitus. It helps users pinpoint the frequencies of their tinnitus. Once done, the frequencies can be tracked on a graph and emailed to a specialist or insurance company. The program also uses that dynamic information to guide users on how to mask and even inhibit the irritating noise they experience so they can find periods of quiet relief.
As a tinnitus sufferer himself, Dr. Robin LeBlanc created iTinnitus Solutions to help the many people who seek help for the affliction. The doctor has put the sound-therapy package into a private application that users can take advantage of anytime from their iPhone or iPod touch. Of course, the application is not recommended as a substitute for a physical exam to rule out medical causes of tinnitus, nor should it be considered a proper hearing exam.

Meet Phillip Cordell, alter ego: HiPhi. By day, heâ€™s an AV integrator at Multimedia Masters in Nashville, Tenn. By night, heâ€™s a techno rapping phenom with his own record label, HiPhidelity, and a video producer in conjunction with the production company I Love Betty.
Rapping for almost 12 years (itâ€™s in his blood, he tells me), Cordell is best known within the industry for his rap â€œA/V Professional,â€? which is approaching 9,000 views on YouTube. Standing in a warehouse full of Crestron, Extron, and Pesa boxes, he raps his day job and the wonders and frustrations of wielding the BNC crimper, waiting â€œa whole weekâ€? for the PC to boot, and catching up on his CTS.
â€œSignal ran through it/The man he can do it/Trying to hide wires as I grab the Panduit/If and only if and I cannot fish the wall/Iâ€™m sorry, I was on a ladder when I missed your call.â€?

At InfoComm 2010, a sustainability rating system for AV and electronic systems will be announced. It is the product of work done by the Green AV Task Force and the current AV Sustainability Task Force.
In 2009, the InfoComm board of directors authorized the creation of a Green AV Task Force. The mission of the group was to create a body of green AV knowledge and associated best practices. While a lot of good work was performed, the group was unable to meet its mandate because there was/is no generally accepted definition of what a green AV system is, and there is no clear way to measure or compare a green AV installation against a standard nongreen AV system.
As a result, the InfoComm board of directors has decided to de-emphasize the associationâ€™s pursuit of LEED innovation points for green AV and instead create its own AV sustainability rating system.
