Hang and BangIs this a market segment or just a slang thang?
So why do I feel a little queasy when I hear that phrase? Maybe its because, by in large, most of the people I know and work with make their very livlihood with "Hang and Bang" solutions. I guess another reason it bugs me is the way people say "Hang and Bang." It sounds as if they were saying "Spinach and Broccoli Milk Shakes". Their face contorts a little and they have this deep chill go through their body.
So what are we really talking about when we say "Hang and Bang?" I believe this refers to the simple, low cost, entry level installations. These installations are maybe one or two sources, a display device, and an interface with minimal distribution to tie it all together. Something like this would be "Hang and Bang:"
So whats my beef? Well, we know margins based on product alone are becoming slimmer and slimmer with the introduction of more and more manufacturers in this industry. Now couple that with how the margins are being affected by the advances being made on their production lines.
