Remember when Dave, our other AV guy, attended the Digital Signage Expo in Las Vegas just a few months ago? Well, he brought back some amazing resources and publications. And we’ve had a lot of fun reading through them to generate some new blog content. Read more »
“Notice: To Preserve Confidentiality Please Wait Here for Service”
I am certain that every one of our readers has seen this type of sign. It is called a “Confidentiality Compliance Sign.” And most likely, you have read a similar sign while in line at the pharmacy, the doctor’s office, the hospital waiting area, etc. And even though you may be standing five feet behind the person in front of you, chances are that the sounds of a conversation have traveled and you actually are able to hear their private dialogue. Did you know that this is potentially considered a breach of privacy law? Read more »
At AV Bend, we like things that ROCK! Our Team rocks! Our goal is to treat each of our clients like Rock Stars! We only ask for one autograph on paper too!
So, when it comes to Digital Signage, we ask, “What is the purpose of the sign?” Screens are nothing but a communication medium. However, content has the power to shape experiences and inspire action.

“Sign, sign everywhere a sign.” In 1970, the “5 Man Electrical Band” recorded a song that knocked “signs” for their “do this, don’t do that” tone. The song made The Billboard Top 100 charts (rating every song in popularity of times played by radio stations and singles purchased at record stores). That awesome rock song made it to Number 3 on the National Charts! It was also re-recorded by Tesla in 1990. Maybe you heard that version instead? (still awesome). Alright Dave aka Casey Kasem…enough about music trivia.
Today, more than ever, signs are used for good…that’s if they are designed right. Read more »

I just love conference rooms. These rooms have such power in them and strengthen the attendees with a sense that “I am safe to share my ideas in private, with people who want to be here.” Then there are times I enter one, and I see all the possibilities of a space that could host greatness.
To transform your room into conference room greatness, ask yourself these questions: Read more »
We had a lot of fun last week researching the AV demands of Generation Z, especially as those demands related to higher education. Now we are going to address the overlap of three of those demands as they relate to business success. Read more »
The January/February 2017 CAMPUS TECHNOLOGY issue is fascinating, thought-provoking, intriguing, and overwhelming. Do you realize that the current generation, Generation Z, is now entering their college-age years? Soon, this group of approximately 60 million young people will be future employees, home owners, entrepreneurs, and economic decision makers. For those of us in the AV industry, we are wise to analyze the current AV trends in higher education in order to forecast the business needs in the coming decade. But first, we must take a moment to understand the characteristics of a stereotypical Generation Z member. Read more »
It’s about time we got what we asked for. Residents in Central Oregon are tired of hearing the words, “home theater” and “stereo.” One local home owner stated, “I will go to the theater if I want to see a blockbuster on a 20-foot screen. And if I want a stereo, those are at Goodwill. But I come home to an Integrated Audio Visual System.”
Integrated Audio Visual System – What does this mean for the new home owner? Read more »
