In a blur of motion, lights, sounds, and badge scanners…we emerged to find our booth each morning.   This was the norm of InfoComm 2015.  From a tech perspective, I was a kid in a candy store while walking from one end of the Conference Center to the opposite end each day to find the latest and greatest of the A/V world.

In case you didn’t see the product offerings we brought with us, or just can’t remember the names of all those products, I’ll bring a little description of them to you quickly.  A hotspot attraction for us was the Epson All in One board.  This was an Epson BrightLink 1430, which utilizes any standard flat surface for touch annotation and display, attached to a Conen Whiteboard desk.  Most everyone had seen the BrightLink in play, but very few had seen the motorized table turn into a drafting board.  Between this, and the people stopping by to color the large resolution car we put on the board, our booth became crowded with onlookers.

Barco Video Wall was on display with our current products dancing across the screen.  Attendees were asking all sorts of common questions that I’ll address here.  Can the unit take a cable TV feed?  Yes, you can use a 4way HDMI splitter and run a single HDMI into all 4 panels for a large display.  Can I use a video controller to make 4 different images and still blend? Yes, Barco also manufactures a very robust Video Controller line.  Will the Barco video walls work well with video conferencing?  Absolutely!  In fact, most of the attendees were interested in using the 4 panel we had on display for that very thing.

Polycom and Avteq teamed up in two different spaces on the outside of the booth.  Both were high-traffic and interactive areas.  Avteq displayed their  Slim TeamSpace tables for our huddle room solutions.  The difference between these tables and what customers normally see is that these table tops were full whiteboards!  We had dry erase markers out with the invitation to write and doodle.  A Polycom Group 700 connected to 2 Elo touch panels, with a Barco ClickShare, and a Revolabs Executive Elite wireless microphone solution rounded out the “boardroom” suggested solution.  The second Avteq table was mounted to a Panasonic display, while running a Polycom CX 5500 Roundtable camera.  We were demoing all the Polycom units and their Lync connectivity.  By joining them all to Lync, all invites/meetings were on the display of the codec, simply awaiting a user to hit yes when the meeting needed to start.  We also had a full wall of Polycom Voice products inside of the booth for any questions around audio and integration.

If you missed this year’s InfoComm, I’ll encourage you not only to attend next year, but to get in touch with us about any products you’ve read about in this post.  We’ve worked really hard to gather the industry’s leading solutions, all while displaying them exactly how they could look in your  environment.
