What Defines 5-Star Service?
By Joseph Kolchinsky. Standards of what makes for excellent service shouldn’t vary from one industry to the next. An integrator's service should be equivalent to a hotel concierge.
Time to Dump ‘Installer’ or ‘Technician’ Job Titles
By Jason Knott. I propose changing the lexicon to eliminate the terms 'installer' and 'technician' from job classifications and help wanted ads if we want to attract top, young talent to the custom integration industry. 'Specialist,' 'network engineer,' 'tech specialist' and 'engineer' are more apropos job titles.

Brent McCall would win the Integrators’ Choice award.

Will device/silicon folk be enthusiastic about supporting this whole heartedly and in effect tie their growth to the whims of Google??? A look at the Android/mobile phone manufacturers relationship (then and now) will be instructive. …

Nice feature!  It’s nice to see the good guys succeeding.

Why do we need UL for testing of HDMI Cable? It will only increase cost of manufacturing on a commodity product and hence higher costs to dealers. I don’t have any issues with Key Digital HDMI cables, have been buying them for years.…

Brent is an invaluable resource to the industry.  Support those who support you! Brent, is that worth dinner at the next trade show?

The folks at Metra/Ethereal are the best. When it comes to HDMI products they are our only source other than Crestron DM switchs. Brent is an incredible wealth of knowledge in our field, even if he does drive a girly Miata…  I…

Here is the problem…no two clients/integrators/ projects are the same. What one person cares about doesn’t matter to anyone else. ccolwell mentions no hard or capacitive buttons as a negative. This is a positive for me.…
