It’s a blight that’s holding the entire industry back, regardless of which channel you’re in, keeping us all from reaching our full potential.
There’s a blight that affects every last segment and channel in the industry. It’s so prevalent, so part of the background that, like the sky, you take it for granted and stop really noticing it unless you step back and refocus your perception. It’s a blight that’s holding the entire industry back, regardless of which …

Wouldn’t NOW be the time to learn about what new products and tools will be available to you?
In case you have somehow missed it, Integrated Systems Europe begins in Amsterdam on February 10th.  The show is expected to draw a crowd of 50,000 people.  Compare that to the 37,000 that InfoComm attracts in the United States, and you quickly realize that ISE is a HUGE show.  Yet, because it happens on another continent, many …

Some people just can't stop texting, ever.

Texting While Driving: Why?
To those who know me it may seem a tad hypocritical for me to complain about how people today are too plugged in; too intimately and permanently implanted with their smartphones. Yet even I think there has to be a limit. Despite the fact that the province of Alberta passed a Distracted Driving law three …

Following an exciting keynote by Lars Thomsen, Gary Kayye caught up with ISE Managing Director Mike Blackman and talked about the 2015 show. Not only is it assured to be a record-breaking year for the event — we’ve predicted 58,000, but the world’s largest mega-AV show has more than 1,050 exhibitors, including more than 200 brand new exhibitors.

Story
Tagline
The Number One AV News Source. Period.
Introduction
rAVe [Publications], founded in 1998 by Gary Kayye, is a news organization that provides coverage of the commercial (ProAV) and residential (HomeAV) audiovisual trade industries via e-newsletters, blogs, video, social media, and a variety of other mediums.

The target audience for rAVe’s publications is what we call “AV Insiders” – AV dealers, integrators, consultants, designers, etc. that deal in the sale, specification, design and installation of audiovisual products. We do not target what most people call “end users,” though a small percentage of rAVe’s readers may qualify as such, especially on the ProAV side of things.

rAVe is an opinionated news organization, providing news and commentary that reflect the opinions of its authors. We believe that all news is heavily affected by the views of its author, so we state up front that ours is going to be. We are also heavily biased towards the AV integrator/dealer’s perspective since, well, that’s our audience. However, we do NOT get paid by manufacturers, or anyone, for running off our editorial mouth. We run what we run based on what we think, and that’s it.

So whose opinions are you getting? Want to disagree with someone? Check out our current list of employees and contributors here. Everyone’s individual contact info is listed, and we’d love to hear from you.
