In this episode of My TechDecisions Podcast, host Jonathan Blackwood interviews Dustin Campbell, President and CEO of Adtech Systems. Adtech systems is a premier professional AV integrator in the Greater Boston Area serving much of New England. Dustin Campbell and Philip Muscatello purchased a majority interest in Adtech Systems in March of 2015 and have been running the company ever since.
Dustin discusses considerations around meeting room technology. We speak about how the meeting room has evolved in the past decade, and some of the reasons why that evolution has taken place. We also speak about what type of technology fits best for meeting rooms of different sizes. We talk about the importance of making meeting room technology work together, whether the onus for that falls on the integrator or the manufacturer, how end users can better convey their need to integration partners, and more.
Finally, a call to action:
TechDecisions and Adtech Systems has partnered for a series of roundtable discussions with end users in the Greater Boston Area. We choose a group of end user tech decision makers, bring them together, and discuss considerations around their job. We discuss how integrators can better serve them, and how TechDecisions can bring them better information.
For our next discussion we’re looking for corporate end user tech decision makers to discuss meeting room technology. If you’re interested in participating in a roundtable discussion, contact TD Managing Editor Jonathan Blackwood (JBlackwood@ehpub.com).
