    NOMINATIONS ARE OPEN

    by logging in and voting here
    Thank you!

    Will’s Nomination Statement

    I have been within the AV industry for nearly 10 years. Prior to AV I was an Officer in the RAF, starting as an accountant and then transferring to Intelligence; I therefore know my way around money, leadership and hitting targets (quite literally) in adverse conditions.

    My vision for CEDIA is simple; a brand synonymous with outstanding service delivery and protection of its members against undercutting and sub-standard workmanship. Clients should only ever look at employing CEDIA companies; they would only ever employ NICEIC (or equivalent) electricians as they know they are qualified; the same should apply to CEDIA. We need to achieve this collectively.

    Finally, I believe that Board Members should promote CEDIA and not their company within CEDIA.

    CONTROL4 OS 2.8

    CONTROL4 have ‘reimagined’ security integration with their control system. Operating System version 2.8 features a new user interface across all touchscreens, remotes and mobile devices. This brings together all the security zones in your household for simple access and management.

    Control4 have also developed Mockupancy
    This is a system which learns your household routine, such as when you turn on and off various lights. It can then mimic this routine when you are away, making your house appear occupied.
    Learn more here.

    Finally, the new Control4 DS2 Door Station completes your home security with keycode or touch screen access and in-built cameras to remotely view who is at your front door.

    The top of the range Sonos PLAY:5 wireless speaker has been overhauled to “deliver a richer listening experience” with precision and “crystal-clear clarity” in every voice and instrument. The PLAY:5 completes the range above the PLAY:1 and PLAY:3 systems, which offers a complete solution to home audio.
