Pete Putman, President, ROAM Consulting L.L.C.
Peter H. Putman, CTS®, ISF, is president of ROAM Consulting LLC in Doylestown, PA. A 37-year veteran of the AV Industry, Pete provides consulting, training and product testing/development services to manufacturers, dealers, distributors, and end users.
Once again, Pete Putman traveled to Las Vegas to see what's new in the world of consumer electronics. 8K TV, connected appliances, faster WiFi, autonomous pizza delivery, conscious bathrooms, blinking robots, the US Postal Service, and roll-up televisions were all part of the craziness. Is CES getting to be too big? Have 4K TVs become disposable commodities? Do you really want to have conversations with your refrigerator? Are Amazon and Google the 800-pound gorillas in CE now? What was it like to experience The Great Power Failure of 2018? Are we starting to feel "Gadget Fatigue?" Are instant photo prints making a comeback? All of these questions will be answered (or cleverly ignored) in this presentation.
Pete has written extensively on digital video and display technology for numerous consumer and trade magazines, and is a frequent speaker at major trade shows and technical conferences, including the Society of Motion Pictures and Television Engineers (SMPTE) annual technology conference, the National Association of Broadcasters trade show, the Hollywood Post Alliance Technology Retreat, and the InfoComm International trade show in June in the U.S.
Pete holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in communications from Seton Hall University and a Master of Science degree in Television and Film from Syracuse University.
Pete received the 2008 Educator of the Year Award and is a Senior Academy member of InfoComm University™ faculty, as well as a former Education Director for SMPTE.
