From digital signage, to lecture capture technology, to videoconferencing through telepresence, the impossible is happening before our very eyes. Experience the radical developments in the world of audio visual technology, and witness the innovative solutions that top vendors and service providers are offering to help keep your institution abreast of today's dramatically changing A/V market.
