One Voice: New Year, New Look
You hold in your hands the evolution of print! There is a great reason that this and future issues of Technology Integrator are re-sized to enhance the demand for the on-the-go experience through Augmented Reality (AR) technology.
We launched the AR capability as provided by the free Layar app (www.layar.com) in our October issue. The easy step-by-step is outlined below. Simply download the app and go enjoy our 2014 Letter from our President on page six where Layar provides the power to bring printed content to life via your smartphone or tablet.
We’ve also enhanced our cover stock to improve the tactile experience of reading the printed publication.
Our look and feel may be changing, but our mission remains the same: to provide custom installers and integrators with the insight and news they need to increase profits, drive sales and bring more customers through the door and to their website.
We also want to congratulate all of our “Young Turks” recipients. The Technology Integrator Young Turk recipients are not based on age, but rather on those individuals who have distinguished themselves by blazing trails in all facets of our industry’s businesses, these rising professionals share the passion, drive, and distinction of Young Turks. Congratulations to all!
