Robert Kennedy


I am the the Media and Control Systems Engineer at The University of Scranton. Within this role, I am primarily responsible for the conceptualization, design and programming of classroom audiovisual and control systems. Along with more than 30 years of professional experience, I hold multiple industry certifications from Extron, Crestron and AVIXA. As a true A/V enthusiast, I am always looking past the horizon to prepare for what is coming next.

I am a lifelong learner who loves sharing knowledge and ideas with anyone willing to listen. I have authored multiple feature and opinion articles in the IT/AV Report (by Sound and Communications) and have been invited to share my opinions and ideas on Extron’s Technical Advisory Council five times.

Over the past two years, I have spent much of my free time developing voice control for classroom A/V systems. Along with simplifying operation, I believe the Alexa Classroom Control Skill will offer greater accessibility to those who need it. This skill has been recently featured in both the IT/AV Report and AVTechnology magazine.
