This month we are proud to announce that two Contributing Members of the SDVoE Alliance have been promoted to Steering Member status. Black Box and IDK Corporation will join Founding Members Christie Digital, NETGEAR, Semtech, and ZeeVee as the members who drive the future of the Alliance and sit on the board of directors. Grandbeing maintains their board seat, and represents the interests of all Contributing Members.
To commemorate the promotion of these companies, I sat down with each Steering Member for a catch up on the state of SDVoE. This blog series will bring you each of the interviews. Strap in and get ready to binge watch – there is a LOT to cover and I think we hit it all.
I have known Stephane Tremblay, CTO of the AptoVision product group at Semtech, since 2012. It was he who attracted me to eventually join the team myself. Steph and I share many views on how IT technology is reshaping pro AV, but we also have some subtle but strongly-felt disagreements. I hope our interview sheds some new and entertaining light on AV/IT convergence, and how that convergence makes interoperability and standardization more important to AV than ever before.
