Almo Professional A/V and MusicLites® Harmonize to
Offer Wireless Lighting Audio Combo

Almo Hosting MusicLites® Webinar on November 16;
MusicLites on Almo’s E4 AV Tour

Philadelphia, PA — November 15, 2011 — As natural as the combination of lighting and sound, Almo Professional A/V, the nation’s fastest growing audiovisual distributor, has teamed with ARTISON and OSRAM SYLVANIA, producers of MusicLites®, to bring some of the best lighting and high-fidelity audio available today to the industry. To give its partner community the opportunity to learn more about the MusicLites product, Almo Pro A/V is hosting a free webinar on November 16, entitled “Where There’s Light, There’s Music.”

MusicLites was featured on the Almo E4 AV Fall 2011 tour and will continue to exhibit throughout the E4 2012 program, which is scheduled to make four stops across the country.

“MusicLites provides our partners with a high-profit, low-cost lighting/audio combination that offers easy installation and maintenance – there’s just nothing out there like this,” explained Sam Taylor, executive vice president and COO for Almo Professional A/V. “It is impressive that ARTISON and OSRAM SYLVANIA have engineered a product that is both an efficient LED light and a great sounding wireless speaker all in the same package. Consequently, there was an extreme amount of interest in the MusicLites product from those attending our E4 Fall events in Chicago and New York City last month, which prompted the creation of a webinar to provide more information about the simplicity and benefits of the product for commercial applications.”

“Almo Pro A/V has the best commercial partner base in the industry – they are smart and savvy so they understand how a product this simple can provide endless opportunities for new and existing accounts,” said Cary Christie, president and CEO of ARTISON. “It was crucial for us to meet many of these resellers, consultants and integrators on the E4 tour and we look forward to learning more about their needs and sharing more about the MusicLites product during the webinar and at the E4 2012 events.”

MusicLites provides whole-facility audio distribution without the expense of traditional installations. The product combines an efficient 10-watt LED light, a 70-millimeter full-range high-fidelity loudspeaker and a wireless audio receiver in a module that is compatible with any audio source. The product fits into four-, five- or six-inch recessed cans, replacing traditional in-ceiling speakers. MusicLites delivers light output that is equivalent to a 65-watt reflector bulb and dimmable by remote control. It is ideal for commercial applications ranging from small professional offices and hotels to restaurants and retail stores.

About the MusicLites Webinar
The free Almo webinar, “Where There’s Light, There’s Music,” focuses on how MusicLites can be used to cost- and time-effectively meet challenging installations. Participants will learn how to increase profit margins and make projects more competitive for distributed audio. They’ll also learn why giving clients the latest in technology adds “wow factor” to any proposal. To register for this webinar or to see others in the Almo Pro A/V webinar series, click here.
