MOUNT VERNON, NY, July 13, 2021 – The timely “Your Table Is Ready: Restaurants and Bars Reopening, Retooling” is the most recent episode of the Key Digital® monthly webinar series Unlocking AV with Mike T – now available for online viewing. The episode is hosted by Mike Tsinberg, Founder and President of Key Digital, as well as an award-winning pioneer in DVD and HDTV and holder of 40 patents. He is joined by industry experts Steven “Butch” Thomas (Advanced Network Engineer at Virtuous Systems), Kirsten Nelson (Writer, Podcast Host and Content Strategist), technologist Frank Wells (Senior Account Executive, Clyne Media) and DeWayne Rains (VP of Sales for Key Digital).
As pandemic-driven restrictions on public gatherings relax, restaurants and bars are retooling to compete for their share of pent-up demand. The following topics (among others) are discussed in the webinar: the needs of indoor and outdoor facilities, AVoIP, bandwidth, compression protocols and the business climate for AV.
“It’s all about perception, expectation and experience,” said Nelson. To amplify the experience, she elaborated, “Let’s make that restaurant, that bar stand out even more with media. That’s what we do as an industry.”
In such establishments, infrastructure is key to the experience for the guest, but also for the staff. “How simple is it for you to just change the channel on one TV and not change the channel on 30 other TVs?” asked Thomas, adding that AVoIP has provided the answer to providing sophisticated solutions that are easy to operate. “They always want to go with the simplest route.”
