A virtual press conference from Sound & Video Contractor


September 5, 2007 – HAUPPAUGE, NEW YORK – Electrograph Systems, Inc., one of the nation‘s largest display technology distributors, today announced it has teamed up with CEDIA, the premier trade association for the residential design & installation of electronics systems, for its all-new Display Technology Experience (DTE) reseller events. Coming to New York and Ft. Lauderdale this fall, Electrograph‘s DTE training and networking programs have been enhanced with home automation content to accommodate professional resellers serving the residential market.

According to Sam Taylor, president of Electrograph Systems, Inc., “The reality is that almost half of our reseller partners are selling into both the residential and the commercial markets. And Electrograph is committed to helping resellers grow their businesses with the best products, training and services for these industries.” He continued, “We are so pleased to have the leading residential electronics systems organization on board to augment our DTE programs. The wealth of knowledge offered through CEDIA will be invaluable to our reseller community.”

“We are very supportive of Electrograph‘s dedication to the high-end residential market,” said Don Gilpin, executive director of CEDIA. “The DTEs provide an excellent forum to properly educate the current and upcoming workforce about the latest trends and products for home automation. Consumers are asking for these products because they are lifestyle-changing. Resellers must stay ahead of market and installation advancements in order to keep up with these demands.”

The new DTEs, which will debut in New York, NY on October 10 and Ft. Lauderdale, FL on November 7, include a full day of reseller training and education, as well as an exhibit hall full of the newest commercial and residential A/V products and technologies. Resellers will now be able to earn CEDIA continuing education credits and NSCA University Learning credits, get a first-hand look at the freshest new product and accessory solutions and delve into the latest trends in both industries — all at the same event and all free of charge.

The fall DTE programs have been built upon the success of Electrograph‘s DTEs held earlier this year in Dallas, Chicago and Seattle. They incorporate all-new training topics led by some of the biggest names in the business so that resellers can walk away with insider knowledge that can immediately be put to use. Sessions include:

Networking Skills: More than Just a Stop on the Information Highway. Gary Kayye, Gary Kayye‘s rAVe and Gary Kayye‘s Home Edition e-newsletters
Multiple Dwelling Units: Trends, Technologies and Tips to Work Successfully in this Emerging Market. Victor J. Cypher Jr., EVtek, LLC
Do You Run a Business or Shop? Relating Company Culture to Success. Brad Nelson, Sound Solutions Northeast
Retrofit Installation. Jeff Gardner, CEDIA
ISF Display Calibration: The Ultimate Differentiation. Alan Brawn, Brawn Consulting

Technologies highlighted at the fall DTEs will include the latest in plasma and LCD flat panel displays, home cinema projectors, touch panels, consumer DVDs, mounts and stands, video processors, amplifiers and receivers, wire and cable, video interfaces and more. Major display providers such as Pioneer, Panasonic, NEC, Sharp, Hitachi and Mitsubishi will hold exhibit space at these events.
