The first time I heard the word convergence being applied to what I do, it was in regard to information technology (IT) being used to manage the operation of and deliver content to installed audiovisual (AV) systems. In its simplest form, the convergence of AV/IT (or is it IT/AV?) meant sharing wires. More importantly, it meant two silos of human knowledge agreeing on a lot of important issues like protocols, bandwidth, and control. Live events are a lot more complicated than meeting rooms.
