“SDVoE LIVE! Tuesday Talk with AV Pros” Debuts

Pro AV’s only edutainment program will feature training on a variety of important pro AV topics, illuminating case studies, panel discussions and more

MONTREAL — November 10, 2020 — The SDVoE Alliance® today announced the December 1 debut of “SDVoE LIVE! Tuesday Talk with AV Pros”, a new edutainment program featuring pro AV news commentary, training on a variety of important pro AV concepts, illuminating case studies, panel discussions and more.

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 SDVoE Alliance head of education Matt Dodd from Tiverton, UK. Special guests will take part in many episodes.

“You’ll have a know-it-all Brit and an opinionated Texan facing off on controversial topics in pro AV,” said Dodd. “There are bound to be sparks and that will be part of the fun.”

“Yes, we’ll have fun, but we will also provide the high-quality education that system designers, integrators and tech managers have come to expect from the SDVoE Academy,” said Kennington. “No one else in pro AV is doing this and it’s about time. Different to other prominent Americans, I am leveraging my presidency into reality TV stardom.”
