The nation’s largest AV product and integrator conference was held June 4th-10th in Las Vegas, Nevada. InfoComm is the largest, most exciting event in the Western Hemisphere focused on the pro-AV industry, with more than 1,000 exhibitors, thousands of products, and nearly 40,000 attendees from 110+ countries. The InfoComm show is a once-a-year opportunity to see the latest audiovisual technology, learn skills that will advance your career, and grow your professional network.

CCS Presentation Systems had representatives from around the country attending the conference and everyone was able to take some unique experiences home to their teams, along with inspiration for new project types and new products to introduce to clients.

From the CCS Southwest office, Rod Andrewson, Manager of Technology and Quality Control and a seasoned Systems Engineer with over 30 years of experience in the professional AV field, gave some key conference takeaways below:

What were some of the newest AV innovations showcased at the conference?

Was there a solution you found at the conference that targeted a specific challenge currently in the AV industry?

From a specific LED display manufacturer point of view, all the big manufacturers have jumped on board the LED band wagon, either with their product or acquisitions. Leyard and Planar, NEC, Christie, Silicon Core, NanoLumens, Samsung and I know I am leaving several out. I really liked the Absen products and the partnership approach they have. Their products are well placed in the 2-4 mm range, they look great are easy to install and the company has priced the products right, they have stock on the shelves in the states and are easy to work with.

This is not a fad, LED displays are viable replacements for large displays in auditoriums, classrooms, house of worship and of course retail and corporate applications. So the time is now to jump on board.

What market sector do you think currently has the most demand for AV innovation?

What was your favorite part of the conference overall?

My favorite part of InfoComm is usually the Exhibit Floor. This year that was really the case. I spent three days with wall to wall meetings all designed around specific needs and opportunities.
