The IP Roadshow: A Technology Education Tool for the Media and AV Industry
Jason Kornweiss, Vice President and General Manager, Emerging Technology & Solutions, Diversified and Karl Paulsen, Chief Technology Officer, Diversified, joined this episode of the Pro AV podcast to talk about Diversified’s IP roadshow.
The roadshow is a portable IP media lab that serves as an educational tool for the media and AV industry. Kornweiss said there is a massive educational need within media companies today to handle the rapid changes in technology.
“It is difficult, if not impossible, for media companies to be able to refresh their engineering expertise at the rate that technology is moving,” Kornweiss said.
While the IP roadshow began in 2017, for 2020, Diversified plans to make it available, on-site, at customer locations to better help bring people through the new technology standards.
“We’ve done several of these sessions, largely tied to project work,” Kornweiss said. “Customers warmly embraced them and continue to ask for more training and assistance.”
Kornweiss noted that his team would work with customers to provide an IP roadshow tailored to their specific needs.
The roadshow kit now includes materials, demonstrations and hardware from up to 15 different technology vendors. This in-depth approach gives a customer a full understanding of how all of the media technology integrates, and this two-day curriculum is as hands-on as one can get, according to Paulsen.
