Attending InfoComm is essentially a rite of passage for any AV professional. The latest products from major contenders in the AV world come together, bringing out the most innovative technologies from the manufacturers. Meeting new people, observing cutting-edge technology, and getting a feel for where the industry is headed were the high points of my first InfoComm experience.
There were definitely a few stand-out moments of the show. One impressive highlight was the unveiling of LG Electronics’ industry leading Full HD Video Wall display. This product has the world’s slimmest, bezel to bezel design at 1.8mm which, combined with their existing IPS and Shine-Out technologies, makes it a perfect fit for window displays and exhibition. These characteristics maximize the viewing angle while reflecting away ambient light for best image visibility and clearer display under direct sunlight.
Also, Barco’s latest line of laser projectors was an intriguing feature of InfoComm. These projectors deliver exceptional image quality with outstanding brightness, contrast, and superior color performance; they did not disappoint. Associated benefits also include significant reduction in operating expenses (no more lamp replacement and maintenance), energy efficiency, and a lower total cost of ownership.
Last but certainly not least, Almo exhibited the ADTI SkyPanel outdoor digital LED display, a recent addition to their product line. This product is interesting not only from an innovation standpoint, but also from a solutions provider’s perspective. The ADTI SkyPanel is a modular outdoor digital signage product that offers a turn-key solution to any integrator looking to delve into that market. This is an ingenious modular design that reduces energy consumption, dissipates heat efficiently without fans, and is available for shipping and installation within one day. I was (and continue to be) impressed!
My first InfoComm trade show event with Almo Pro A/V was a very exciting and enjoyable experience. It was an honor to be part of the team that fabricated and exhibited the Almo booth at InfoComm 2015. I was able to become well acquainted with my new team and learned a tremendous amount from them. Aside from meeting all the great people that make up the Almo team, it was an amazing event that provided me the opportunity to view the latest technological advances from our vendors. I am looking forward to InfoComm 2016 and the new innovations to come.
