InfoComm Day Three — Five Cool Things Unveiled At InfoComm

1 One corner of Sennheiser’s booth was constantly buzzing, with necks craning to see the K-array speakers. You had to twist your neck a bit – the K-arrays are on a scale with Matchbox toy cars. But imagine a Matchbox Shelby Cobra with 4.9-liter engine under the hood. That’s what the new KK50vb line array speaker system is like: only 2.2 inches deep and weighing just 5.5 pounds but it packs up to 120 dB of output. It can also change vertical coverage from 7 degrees to 120 degrees with the flip of a switch.

2. Atmosphere is what its name suggests: 4 screens with a band member or dancer or DJ in each, shot in 4K, with synched audio, intended to grease the mood with settings for lounges, discos, cruise ships, retail, HOW and other environments. Atmosphere North America is handling distribution here for the German company.

3. Tyler Truss and Pix2O teamed to create a rollable LED video wall. The 30-foot screen goes up and down in minutes using an LED blade developed by Pix2O and a truss and winch from Tyler Truss.

4. Not quite as small as the K-array but barely larger than a bullhorn is AmpliVox Sound Systems’ IPOD Remote Controlled Wireless PA. The 15-pound unit includes a self-contained IPOD docking station that recharges the IPOD as it amplifies music and plays video. It features 30 watts for a clear sound for audiences up to 500 in a 2,500-square-foot room via an 8-inch full-range speaker. The design also includes a ducking circuit to talk over the music program.

5. Scala’s DIY content creation service for digital signage suggests another mile marker for digital signage, making the content as accessible as the technology has become. Scala’s SignChannel online subscription-based service is priced for small- to mid-sized businesses that can be scaled down to an infrastructure as minimal as a single wireless photo frame. Ever design a greeting card online? That’s where digital signage content is headed.
