InfoComm 2014 Recap

We recently attended the InfoComm conference in Las Vegas, and we’ve taken away many positives from the experience.

InfoComm is an international audio visual show, targeted toward commercial applications (rather than residential). Attendees included small to large system integration/install firms, as well as IT and AV managers working directly with an end-user segment, such as a corporation, higher education, government, and healthcare.

Many new products were showcased this year, and MilesTek is proud to distribute many of them. This confirms our goal of keeping up with industry standards and AV technology.

Attendance was strong at this year’s conference, with many products being showcased, although there was nothing “earth shattering” as far as new technology being presented.

Distribution of HDMI and 4K x 2K Resolution

The main focus of this year’s show was on distribution of HDMI and 4K x 2K resolution. HDMI over IP was also emphasized, which allows for an extension through a LAN network of Ethernet switches/routers.

The other main product that was showcased was the HDBaseT, which allows extension of 4K x 2K resolution up to 330 FT or more. MilesTek should receive stock of our new HDBaseT extenders by the end of the month.

Other highlights included:

  • HD Video Conferencing products, allowing for better interactive collaboration
  • Digital signage creation and distribution systems
  • Large scale video matrix switching equipment—8×8 and larger, over CAT5E/CAT6
  • More and more platforms allowing AV system control and collaboration between smart phones and tablets
