Why I Get Dressed Up For A Wedding

I hate wearing a tie!  No…I REALLY hate wearing a tie.  Recently I was getting dressed up for a wedding.  My wife told me I had to wear a tie.  I reminded her that I was not the one getting married. So who cares what I am wearing?  I was comfortable.  She reminded me that we don’t get dressed up for ourselves, but for those around us.  What we wear sets the tone of the event, and reflects on ourselves.  It actually does nothing for the individual, it’s for the others around us that we get dressed up.

Basic Room Audio Conferencing Solutions Design – one extra question to ask…

As an AV products manufacturer we are asked by end-users and AV Integrators to help provide input and design assist the best audio conferencing solution for conference rooms.   Of course there could be more than one individual solution or several options, depending upon certain preferences (e.g. wired vs. wireless mics, etc.) and budget considerations.  But, let’s put budget aside for now and assume the user simply wants the best possible audio experience for a conference room.

The ClearOne Philosophy – Customer Satisfaction

Today’s society is always on the move.  People expect, react, and plan everything on-demand. In recent years we have watched phones, tablets, laptops, and wearables get smaller, faster, and more abundant.  We are no longer a society wishing to access our online conferences, web videos and other information thru a terminal in a small, cramped cubicle. Today, we want to use our smartphones, tablets, and laptops to communicate and interact. We want to send and receive emails, edit documents, take care of finances, and take pictures of our cute children.

The Many Faces of Streaming

It seems that every few years, there is a new “Word” that makes its way into our vocabulary.  Back in the 1970s, it was the word “Disco”.  Every nightclub and bar suddenly became a Disco.  In the 1980s, it was “Camcorder”.  Everyone was talking about buying and using a camcorder to document their lives’ events.  These “Words” seemingly come out of nowhere, and suddenly explode into our lives.  You see and hear them everywhere, on the TV news, in advertisements, at parties.

The One Brand System – A Consumer Electronics Concept Makes Its Way To Video Conferencing and Media Collaboration

We are all familiar with the “Home Theater In A Box (HTIB)” product.  Many of us own them ourselves.  The idea was born of the desire to make it easier for the consumer to buy and operate a home theater system.  In an HTIB, the components are prepackaged, which means they are all designed to work together and look the same.  End users are confident in what they have purchased is the best system for the price.
