Brawn’s volunteer work cited by InfoComm

September 28, 2011 by Dave Haynes

The pro-AV trade association InfoComm International has cited one of the more omnipresent names in this sector – Alan Brawn – for his volunteer efforts.

The consultant and educator (he and his son, among many things, do those Digital Signage Experts Group sessions that seem to be part of most sector trade shows) has been presented by InfoComm with the Harald Thiel Volunteer of the Year Award. The award makes particular note of Brawn’s contributions to the creation of the new ANSI/INFOCOMM 3M-2011, Projected Image System Contrast Ratio Standard.

You will have, of course, read that cover to cover with a nice glass of single malt.

Randal Lemke, the Executive Director and CEO of InfoComm, says: “Alan Brawn has been a tireless champion of the AV industry and InfoComm International. From his service as chair of the Task Force to his stellar teaching at InfoComm shows and events, Alan is a gracious and enthusiastic InfoComm volunteer.”

Thiel, by the way, ran the big AV integrator firm AVW Telav. Now retired, he has a winery in Ontario’s Niagara region.
