No change from last week. Operations as normal.

Extron

Currently fully operational

Chief, DaLite, Middle Atlantic, Vaddio

Supply channels CURRENTLY good through April and into May.

Only change since last week is that VADDIO is no longer shipping out on Fridays – they use that day to deep clean the warehouse.

Barco, Polycom, Lifesize Hardware

Currently operations as usual. Lifesize, Barco, Polycom in stock and shipping out quickly.

Shure

No change from last week:

Due to the Illinois shelter in place from Friday March 20th, Shure regional distribution center in Illinois is closed until April 8th. No staff will be on site to ship or receive product for the duration of this time. This is the current date and may be subject to change.

Sharp, Samsung, NEC Displays, Projectors

Crestron

No change from last week. Crestron has not YET been impacted by the virus. Inventory levels strong.  

Extron

Extron remains fully operational in all respects, including product delivery, manufacturing, technical support and engineering. At this time, we anticipate no reduction in our capacity to deliver product or in our ability to provide the world-class technical support that you have come to expect from Extron.

Chief, DaLite, Middle Atlantic, Vaddio

Supply channels CURRENTLY good through April and into May. Our sales manager said there will only be an issue IF warehouses and/or factories are forced to close.

Barco, Polycom, Lifesize Hardware

Our supplier currently has enough Polycom and Barco stock for the next month or so and is awaiting an update on the lead time for even more stock. Lifesize units have been shipping out as usual – no delays.

Shure

Due to the Illinois shelter in place from Friday March 20th, Shure regional distribution center in Illinois is closed until April 8th. No staff will be on site to ship or receive product for the duration of this time. This is the current date and may be subject to change.

AV Solutions Note: We can still purchase Shure through wholesalers right now, just not Shure directly

Sharp, Samsung, NEC Displays, Projectors

No concrete answer on future (60-90 days) but supply is still arriving at warehouses from factories. Current supply is low due to a lot of resellers buying up products for future just to make sure they have it available when they need it.
