CEDIA Expo 2018 is in full effect, honoring a cast of integrators for their professionalism in the field and Joel Silver for his lifetime of work and dedication to the custom integration industry.
Founder of the Imaging Science Foundation, Silver has been a stalwart in the industry regarding video calibration in the consumer electronics arena. His contributions have reached every corner of the earth, setting a standard for how the dealers and manufacturers alike think about color calibration.
Nominated among his peers, the CEDIA Lifetime Achievement Award is one that focuses on the “outstanding, creative, innovative, and visionary leadership in the growth and advancement of the residential technology industry.” Silver has accomplished this by introducing the Imaging Science Foundation in 1994, teaching generations of dealers the nuances to a perfectly calibrated television.
Silver reflected on his time spent with his peers, simply noting that it has been an honor to work along so many likeminded individuals but if you love your job, it never feels like work.
