Another hot topic with floor-wide Infocomm solutions is remote device management. We saw amplifiers with built in software configuration pages and deployment software in the Lea amplifier booth. We saw many other device monitoring platforms as well for web conferencing, like Lenovo’s device management and Liberty’s CX Unify platform that can provide remote management along with insight into device health, conferencing reliability, network status and much more! There was so much to see with platforms like Crestron Xio cloud, QSC’s QSYS Reflect, Xyte and more!
Appspace dazzled us with their growing platform. They’re branching out in ways that make their solutions your entire workspace management platform! Through Teams integration, digital signage, room reservations, hot-desking, company messaging platform, virtual receptionist, APIs along with tie ins for 3rd party devices like Cisco, Crestron, Mersive and Poly and a recent acquisition that will soon allow them to provide wiki-type pages, Appspace has the ability to tie all of your messaging and teams together!
Speaking of amazing digital signage, Brightsign’s booth didn’t disappoint! We saw a new player that is coming soon with (4) 4K built-in video outputs! This could be used to run a 2×2 video wall and deliver 8k video across or feed 4 different displays. For example, an entire menu board at a restaurant can be controlled by a single device!
In the end, we were grateful for the opportunity to meet tons of new people and reconnect with many we already knew. It definitely was an impressive show, but man did our feet hurt from walking so much! In fact, we barely found the strength to make our way to the strip and brave the 108 degree weather to get a glimpse of the glitz that is Vegas! To our current and future partners, we look forward to sharing all the amazing new technology from Infocomm 2022 and being able to offer you the most advanced AV solutions!
