Insights on the status of the AV Industry Supply Chain

December 11, 2023


In a time when the AV industry supply chain faces unprecedented challenges, understanding its current status and future trajectory is crucial. In this week’s segment of “Dear Matt,” presented by Vistacom, host Matt Boyer, the Director of Technology at Vistacom, brings his over 30 years of experience in the audiovisual industry to the status of the AV industry supply chain.

Boyer acknowledges the significant impact of supply chain issues, noting how they have compelled Vistacom and its clients to explore alternative solutions and products. This shift, born out of necessity due to shortages in digital audio processing, wireless microphones, and AV over IP control systems, has unexpectedly led to positive transformations. Boyer highlights how this departure from traditional solutions has opened doors to innovation, resulting in breakthroughs and unique opportunities. While most manufacturers have normalized their stock levels, a few still need help with specific product lines. This insightful discussion sheds light on the resilience and adaptability of the AV industry in the face of supply chain disruptions.
