CEDIA View: Now Is the Time
CEDIA membership: You’ve probably considered it at one point or another. Maybe the discounts members receive during CEDIA EXPO sounded really appealing, or you thought about how nice it would be to download each new white paper at no charge, but for whatever reason you have not become a CEDIA member yet.
2013 is the year to pull the trigger. We’ve taken some of our most prized training, e-learning and other popular benefits, and packaged them exclusively for new members and those members who are renewing their membership for 2013.
Training Highlight Videos
Now you can view highlights from 10 of the most highly-attended CEDIA education courses. These videos highlight some of the industry’s best instructors and address topics critical to the success of your business. Topics include:
Selling Your Expertise: Contract comparisons with Michael Maniscalco
This short video discusses using service contracts, one of the hottest topics in the industry. Just like some customers pay annual fees for other services, such as lawn care, Maniscalo suggests integrators sell service contracts. As integrators are making less on product sales as they did in the past, revenue from tiered service contracts can fill the gap.
Security Systems: Selling the upgrade with Steve Sumners
Security systems can be a nice addition to your service menu. This training video covers some suggested security add-ons such as heat detectors, low temp detectors, water leak, and light sensors.
Video Formats: 4K & and the future of television with Dave Pedigo
4K video is the next generation in high definition, offering approximately four times the resolution of an average 1080p. How did we get here? Find out in this video that covers the evolution of video formats and compares the amount of pixels in modern devices with HDTV.
