The Last Word
As to the question of whether I use any commercial AV
gear in my personal home office, outside of my PreSonus
audio interface and Shure mics, I do have a few high-end PTZ
cameras in my setup, but I've actually removed most of the
" commercial AV " components. It just didn't make sense to
me when my scope of work is largely surrounding day-to-day
operations and virtual-event production. Having my Zoom
Room online over the pandemic was cool, but it required
more power, networked devices and real estate that I simply
did not care to dedicate. My switcher sits mostly dormant,
and I only set it up per event. Previously, it was set up 100% of
the time.
There's also something to be said for manufacturers that
target video-game streamers. Elgato is one company I admire
for its vision. Elgato's Stream Deck turned funky mouse clicks
into button presses for easy productions! Poly is another company
I am keeping a close eye on.

It's a loaded question to ask if there's a
market for commercial AV in WFH. The
short answer is yes. The long answer is this:
It depends on what constitutes commercial AV.
Commercial AV for those working in AV means a very
thoughtful, oftentimes overly designed system with a lot of
moving pieces. For users of commercial AV, it means an overly
complex system that, often, isn't worth the trouble when you
consider that they believe they can now get the same experience
with off-the-shelf equipment. Arguably, that makes
off-the-shelf commercial AV.
I use commercial AV gear in my home office. At first, it was
for testing; then, it became for personal enhancement of my
video calls. I use the Shure MXA910 and the IntelliMix P300;
the Q-SYS Core 110f; the AVer VB342 and the CAM520; and
the Blackmagic Design ATEM Mini Pro. I don't use all of them
consistently, but I do use them.
There is definitely a market for commercial AV in WFH. It's just
a matter of commercial AV evolving and seeing the opportunity.

I don't see a market for commercial AV
companies to work on residential installations.
There is too much risk from an inconsistent
user base. In an office environment,
the company can control who uses the room and the purpose of

We're starting to approach three years of virtual meetings
and video calls. More WFH employees than ever are realizing
that just a little commercial AV gear could go a long way.
the room. In the home, everyone wants everything all the time.
I use a Poly Sync 20 and a Logitech webcam. I guess that's
more prosumer than professional. I have had some issues with
syncing the Poly to my devices, but I'm technical enough to
make it work.

When asked, " Is there a market for commercial
AV in the work-from-home world? " ,
I think in terms of the pandemic. Will the
market for commercial AV be as large as pre-COVID-19? Likely
not. Is there still a need? Absolutely yes! During the past two
years for remote WFH employees, there have been many hybrid
internal meetings where just a little commercial AV would have
gone a long way. Simply opening a laptop in a room with 10 employees,
while 20 watch remotely, does not make for a
successful meeting.
With regard to using commercial AV gear in a personal home
office, the question is this: How can the commercial AV market
deliver a product that I can use seamlessly with Microsoft
Teams or Zoom? As a pre-sales engineer, I need to be able
to present quotes and drawings, and sometimes live camera
views of products. There are workarounds for all these needs.
However, a simple integrated product that would give smartboard
functionality over a screen and seamless switching
between sources as a presentable window would have a place
in my home office.
