According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, healthcare employment is expected to grow 14 percent from 2018 to 2028. Telehealth is up 53 percent, and is growing faster than any other place of care. In fact, according to Massachusetts General Hospital, 79 percent of patients say that a telemedicine follow up is more convenient than in-person visits.
As we delved into audiovisual technologies for higher education last month, we thought it would be fitting to interview a well-known thought leader in the higher education setting. On Thursday, Jan. 31, I had the pleasure of interviewing Joe Way. Way is the Director of Learning Environments at USC and a co-founder of the Higher Education Technology Managers Alliance. We talked about his career, connecting with others and trends in this dynamic industry.
At Conference Room Systems (CRS) and our Phila.-area integration company, Haverford Systems, our technology experts have been focused all month long on getting back to school. With the December holiday season behind us, and most college students beginning their spring semesters, we thought it was the perfect time to showcase a variety of audio visual solutions that are helping the higher education market.

Popular building-design and workstyle trends are raising office noise levels, and the results often negatively impact staff productivity and businesses' bottom lines.
The push toward increased “daylighting” in building designs, often in pursuit of Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification, presents office noise challenges. Increasing a building’s natural light coverage means more glass, both in terms of external windows and interior partitions. Glass performs poorly as a noise blocker, thus contributing to an increase in overall office noise.
Welcome to 2020! We are in a new decade, and we're all going to see technological advancements and changes in the years ahead. Of those technologies, the audio visual industry will continue to make great strides for a variety of markets, including higher education.
During December's Higher Education Technology Managers Alliance (HETMA) virtual conference, Joe Way and BC Hatchett during the keynote talk spoke about the diversity of the higher education market. With conference rooms, classrooms and auditoriums peppering college campuses throughout the country, we can all agree there will undoubtedly be a lot of questions concerning audiovisual technologies for higher education. Student-centric higher education, including student retention and higher education affordability, are all affected by integrated technologies that enable student learning. Way and Hatchett emphasized that audiovisual is simply the medium that can impact lives in this realm in such positive ways.
As we wind down 2019 and look ahead to the new year, many of us are making renewed commitments to our business objectives. As next year's expected business trends typically get highlighted at the end of the year, you may find yourself wondering what will really have staying power in 2020. Terms like AI and other tech abbreviations are filling the pages of business magazines and blogs. Some trends are showcased because they’re innovative and exciting or because tech giants with huge advertising budgets are pushing their message. Did you see the recent hype around Tesla's Cybertruck? The AV industry may not quite have as splashy of an approach, but this industry will be critical to providing meaningful ways to enhance your 2020 business practices.
Have you noticed the buzz around telemedicine? It's a growing field that's getting a lot of media attention...and for good reason.
Kayne West and Joel Osteen are inspiring millions. If you're a church leader or involved with church production, you can too!
Despite our Conference Room Systems name, a bulk of the customers we serve are houses of worship using live streaming cameras and technologies to reach their congregants. Live streaming technologies are popular solutions for churches who wish to engage all the members of their community, many of whom are unable to attend weekly services due to illnesses or location constraints.
Greetings! You may have seen me give a studio tour on YouTube, highlighting some of the products we use to create a live stream for CRS "Tech Talk" each week. But if you're just starting a live stream or even thinking about it, you may need something a bit more in depth.
Look no further than the upcoming StreamGeeks Summit, coming to New York City Friday, Nov. 8 to the Dream Downtown Hotel.
Recently, CRS caught up with Phoenix Audio Technologies to talk about some of their audio technologies that are helping colleges and universities meet their distance learning objectives.
