The Latest From the 2018 InfoComm in Las Vegas
InfoComm is the premier conference in the United States focused on audiovisual technology. The event includes many exhibitors, a diverse group of attendees from 110 countries and thousands of products for audio, video, home automation, security, and more. Fearing’s VP of Engineering, Ehren Tresner, recently attended InfoComm in Las Vegas and we sat down with him to talk more about it.
Q: Overall, what technology was everyone talking about at Infocomm?
Tresner: Video walls are even bigger than they’ve been before. They have been at the show for years, but this year they were everywhere you looked and the resolution and picture keeps getting better and better!
Also, a lot of big companies are implementing device management software platforms for larger corporate rolls outs. As these solutions roll out, it will become very helpful in proactively managing company’s devices. They are mostly cloud-based, which a lot of customers are asking for. It’s a good way to manage all the devices (meaning all of the audio and video components) across all corporate environments in multiple locations. This makes a way to manage a company’s hardware and software more effectively from a central location.
Q: Where is Fearing’s hitting the mark with what’s trending?
Tresner: One of the popular trends over the last several years has been video over IP. IP networks are capable of handling more than just internet using existing network infrastructure and Fearing’s is already completing a lot of projects in this area.
In addition to video over IP, Fearing’s is very experienced with video walls – we’ve done a lot of commercial design and installs over the last few years. We’ve highlighted some of these projects on our blog.
