The Influence of Modern Entertainment on Commercial Installations

In this episode of Pro AV Today, host Ben Thomas explores the intersection of modern entertainment and commercial installations with John Steinhauer from Solotech, a company at the forefront of live events and commercial AV integrations. John shares his insights into Solotech’s journey, emphasizing their role in high-profile worldwide projects. The discussion reveals that beyond live events, a significant part of Solotech’s business is systems integration, often overlooked but crucial in enhancing various commercial spaces.

The conversation then shifts to the broader impact of entertainment technology across industries. John highlights how immersive experiences, once confined to arenas and concerts, are now integral to sectors like transportation and retail. He points out that the drive for engaging human experiences is reshaping how technology is used, from airports featuring LED displays to retail spaces offering interactive fitting experiences. The dialogue underscores the importance of creating environments that not only draw people in but also make their experiences more memorable and engaging.

As the episode concludes, three key takeaways emerge. First, the influence of modern entertainment on commercial installations is profound and growing, driven by the desire for immersive experiences.
