Almo Professional A/V Distributes Universal Remote Control Products

Offers URC’s Full Commercial Line; URC to Exhibit at Almo’s E4 Events in Chicago and NYC Next Month

Philadelphia, PA — September 28, 2011 — Almo Professional A/V, the nation’s fastest growing Pro A/V distributor today, announced it now offers Universal Remote Control’s (URC) remotes, base stations, lighting, network amplifiers and IP cameras for small-to-medium-sized commercial applications. URC will debut as an exhibitor on Almo’s Fall 2011 E4 AV training and networking tour, coming to Chicago on October 6 and New York City on October 27.

According to Sam Taylor, executive vice president and COO for Almo Professional A/V, “A universal remote control system is what pulls an entire installation together and makes it functional. Our partners need remote control products that are cost-effective and easy to configure into a range of standard and custom installs and that’s exactly what the URC commercial line allows.? He continued, “Having URC on our E4 AV tour next month gives attendees the chance to see the URC products in use and learn immediately how they can incorporate them into their current and future installs.? Taylor added that Almo Pro A/V’s business development manager Brian Rhatigan will work with partners to help customize applications that involve the URC commercial products.

“A distribution partnership with Almo Professional A/V is about so much more than just supplying products,? said Jamie Finnegan, national sales manager for commercial products at URC. “Almo’s E4 AV tour lets us spend quality time with integrators and resellers in a relaxed and productive environment. Without a doubt, E4 is the place to be for the best product displays, training and relationship-building in the industry.?

Almo Pro A/V now carries URC’s two-way in-wall color RS-232 network keypads, wireless IR/RF PC programmable keypad/remote controls, tablet-style color LCD touch screen IR/RF remote controls and two-way RF remote controls with text feedback. Additionally, Almo Pro A/V partners now have access to URC’s RF-to-IR base stations, IP base stations, lamp and wall dimmers, and single- and multi-zone amplifiers and even IP security cameras.

About the E4 AV Tour
Since its launch in December 2009, the tour has stopped in New York City twice, as well as Anaheim, Chicago, Washington, D.C. and San Francisco. The free full-day program offers an intense educational focus that allows partners to earn valuable InfoComm International CTS RUs while networking with the industry’s top manufacturers. Over the last year, more than 3,000 partners have experienced the benefits of the E4 events and, in the process, have earned nearly 2,500 InfoComm CTS RUs.
