Technology Integrator featured an article about one of our NYC installations. The client is an avid art collector and audiophile so we had to make sure our design took both of these factors into consideration.

Innerspace Electronics Inc. invited teenage students from the Northern Westchester Boys and Girls Club (BGCNW) to their facility in Port Chester, NY for an opportunity to learn more about possible career options in the technology industry. The students visited the company on November 14 and company executives and staff offered presentations and led group discussions designed to be both thought-provoking and educational on the technology industry in general, and on possible careers options with which they may have been unaware.
The teens started their visit at Innerspace by taking a personality quiz, designed to help them better understand who they are – an awareness that can greatly aid them in their assessment of potential career options. The teens were then asked to vocalize what topics or tasks that they currently enjoyed studying in their classes. As the students shouted out subjects such as Math, Science and Art, IEI co-founder Barry Reiner explained how each of those skills are needed and used in a company like Innerspace Electronics.
The group was then treated to a demonstration of the sophisticated technology products in IEI’s showroom, something the entire group really enjoyed. Drawing interest from the group were technologies such as the “invisible” Stealth loudspeakers, as the teens sought to understand just how the technology works. Each of the students was also allowed to independently operate an iPad controller connected to a Savant home integration system, letting them directly experience the effects of the different settings with which they experimented.
“This event was designed to help students learn about, and potentially consider, various career options in the technology field,” said Andrea Reiner, Innerspace Electronics, Inc. co-founder and Chief Financial Officer. “All of the students were deeply engaged in each of the sessions offered, including demonstrations, experiments and classes. We even built time into the agenda to allow the students the opportunity to listen to some of their favorite music on a system that included the top-rated Bower and Wilkins 804 D3 speakers…and they were just blown away with the quality of sound which many of them had never experienced.”
IEI employees took time to share with the students their own individual career journeys leading them to Innerspace Electronics, starting with their days in high school, something with which the teens could really relate. The youngsters were very engaged and asked a lot of questions as to how these stories might relate to their future.
Capping the day with a fun dinner of pizza and soda, IEI employees presented the young attendees with a goodie bag filled to the brim with products donated by Innerspace Electronics’ manufacturers and sales representative firms. The company would particularly like to extend their gratitude for the generous contributions of Bowers & Wilkins, URC, RTI, Sony, Audio Control, Atlantic Integrated and Ultimate Integration.
This Innerspace career day event was a huge success with both company presenters and the Boys and Girls Club attendees enjoying spending time with, and learning from, each other. Innerspace Electronics plans to hold a fund raiser this spring to collect money for the benefit of the Boys and Girls Club of Northern Westchester.
“The Boys and Girls Club is an amazing, life changing organization where 100% of the high school seniors go on to college or technical schools,” said Ms. Reiner. “Not only that, but they also serve 80,000 meals a year so children don’t go hungry, and they teach over 1,000 children a year to swim – which is really important when you consider that the number one cause of death in children under six is drowning. We hope everyone joins us in supporting this important organization.”
As custom AV integrators, it’s not always about just selling a product. Many times it comes down to educating potential and existing clients about the pros and cons of the most current technologies available.
