AVIXA has announced the 2018 recipients of its annual awards. Honorees will be recognized in a ceremony at InfoComm 2018’s Center Stage at the Las Vegas Convention Center on Wednesday, June 6, at 4 p.m.

Each year, AVIXA recognizes outstanding AV professionals for their contributions, leadership, and commitment to excellence. In 2018, the AVIXA Awards Committee received a record number of nominations from across the AV industry.  This year, we are especially pleased to announce that the winners of the Adele De Berri Pioneers of AV Award are Pat Quilter, Founder and Chairman of the Board, QSC, and Barry and John Andrews, Founders, QSC.

What started 50 years ago as Quilter Sound Company became QSC under founders Quilter and the Andrews brothers, leading technological advances across several audio product categories. One of the honorees’ lasting legacies, since the time Quilter personally led QSC’s original development team, was in the advancement of power amplifier technology. QSC also drove innovation in powered loudspeakers, and recently, the founders saw to fruition their almost-20-year vision of software-based processing.

To Pat, Barry and John, we offer our profound gratitude and congratulations on a job well done.
