SDVoE LIVE! Season 2 starts November 2 with “State of AV over IP at InfoComm 2021”

Special guest Gary Kayye will join host Justin Kennington to talk about hot new products and trends at the show and what that tells us about the technology and business climate for 2022

MONTREAL — Oct. 28, 2021 — The SDVoE Alliance® today announced the November 2 debut of “SDVoE LIVE! Season 2”. The 30-minute shows are scheduled for every other Tuesday and will be hosted by SDVoE Alliance president Justin Kennington from Cape Cod, Massachusetts and co-host Matt Dodd, SDVoE Alliance head of education from Tiverton, UK. Thought leaders from throughout the pro AV industry will join the hosts as special guests.

“We’re building on a very successful 16-episode schedule in season 1,” said Dodd. We’ve learned a thing or two along the way and surveyed our loyal viewers to find out what kept them interested, entertained and coming back for more. We promise an even slicker and more exciting season 2.”

“I’m excited by the episode line-up we have in store for season 2. Our viewers told us they loved the guest interviews and AV news commentary and that they also wanted more in-depth ‘under the hood’ looks at hardware and software that drive the SDVoE ecosystem,” said Kennington. “We’ll be delivering that and more, while expanding our reach with simultaneous broadcast in SDVoE Academy, as well as THE rAVe Agency’s LAVNCH platform. So who better to join us in kicking off with our first guest than rAVe’s own Gary Kayye?”
