When TEECOM established our Research & Development group ten years ago, it grew out of the need to address the number one question we heard from clients: What’s next for technology? “What’s next” is a primary driver in business, science, and culture. But how do we know that what we build today will be able to handle emerging technologies? At TEECOMlabs, we test products by putting them into real-world simulations, we push the limits of systems compatibility, we prototype our own hardware and software, and we provide consulting and thought leadership. We’re advancing understanding of how artificial intelligence, mixed reality, and other technologies change our relationship to the built environment.
As we all know, there’s an engineering talent shortage right now. In reaction to this, TEECOM has been raising awareness about low-voltage engineering as a career path through outreach to college students and our summer internship program, TEECOMuniversity. Recently, one of our former interns from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, introduced us to the Cal … Read more
Acceptance testing is a critical part of every audiovisual project.
