Almo Professional A/V Booth Visitors ‘Get in on the Gig’ at DSE 2011

Almo Professional A/V Booth Visitors ‘Get in on the Gig’ at DSE 2011

VIP Tours of Live Digital Signage Systems, Exclusive Product Showings, and Instant Information = Most Valuable 15 Minutes on the Show Floor

Philadelphia, PA — February 22, 2011 — This week at the Digital Signage Expo 2011, Almo Professional A/V (booth #1618), the nation’s fastest growing audiovisual distributor, will give booth attendees the opportunity to “Get in on the Gig? with Almo by taking a VIP tour of live digital signage systems designed for the small, medium and enterprise markets. Exclusive product showings, on-demand demos, instant access to follow-up information and hourly giveaways are available to Almo booth visitors during exhibit hours, which take place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on February 23-24, 2011, at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

“The Almo Pro A/V booth tour is designed for all the DSE attendees — from those just getting started in digital signage to market veterans — and includes everything from the most fundamental digital signage panel to complex video walls,? explained Melody Craigmyle, director of marketing for Almo Professional A/V. “It features a behind-the-scenes look at new and exclusive gear from 19 major digital signage manufacturers, all live and in a single location. This tour is easily the most valuable and efficient 15 minutes an attendee will spend on the show floor.? Craigmyle added that the tours will take place at the top of every hour during regular DSE exhibit times and one attendee will win a $100 Ticketmaster gift card at the end of each tour.

Almo Pro A/V booth visitors can expect to see everything from single-display installations through network-driven enterprise solutions with specialty products that are weatherproof and heatproof for one-of-a-kind applications. All the products will be shown in use and all are available directly from Almo Pro A/V. Some of the highlights include:

Christie MicroTiles: As the exclusive national distributor, Almo Pro A/V offers training and technical assistance for the MicroTiles, which are designed for indoor, high-ambient-light environments. They use the strengths of both DLP® projection and LED technology to offer substantially brighter images and a much wider color palette than conventional flat panel LCD and plasma displays while producing a virtually seamless canvas.

ZeeVee HD Video Distribution: The ZeeVee Pro and ZeeVee Box products will be shown only in the Almo Pro A/V booth. The great pricing and simplicity of the HD video distribution products offer enormous advantages by shattering the cost and deployment barriers for HD video distribution anywhere digital signage is used.

Tripp Lite Compact Power Conditioner: The Tripp Lite Pure Sine Wave A/V UPS system will also be shown exclusively by Almo. The system is ideal for large installations that require clean power 24/7 to safeguard equipment and has drivers written specifically for Crestron and AMX so it can be used in almost any professional install.

Live AMX Demo Center: The AMX Inspired Xpress subscription-free digital signage hardware/software control systems will be shown on demand in a separate station in the Almo booth. Attendees will learn how this powerful, turnkey digital signage solution with customization capabilities can help them create templates and content that can be published easily. Visitors also have the opportunity to sign up for the Almo/AMX Digital Signage Solution Provider Program.

Specialty products, including the SunBrite 46″ outdoor display, Toshiba 55″ LED HDTV, LG 47″ Commercial 3D HDTV and NEC 43″ Bar Display, will also be shown during the booth tour.

Additionally, Almo Pro A/V is offering the “Almo Info Galaxy,? an app developed for the Samsung Galaxy tablet. Booth visitors can easily order any product literature electronically, and the “show bag? will be delivered instantly to their e-mail inboxes.

Last, visitors can attend a Lunch and Learn session with Almo Pro A/V Executive Vice President and COO Sam Taylor titled “Helping Systems Integrators & Installers Enter and Succeed in the Digital Signage Market? on Thursday, February 24 from noon to 1 p.m.

News, photos and information will be shared live from the Almo Pro A/V booth on Twitter at www.twitter.com/almoproav and on the company website at www.almoproav.com.
