On my way to the Peerless booth #IC4029, after an intense conversation about data processing at Biamp, I was thinking about how so many companies were taking AVIT quite seriously now and how the game has really finally changed this year. I was thinking about how radically our market will now change over the coming decade, maybe even faster (though it’s almost never faster). And I was thinking, “well, mount companies don’t have to worry about any of that”–they just have to bend iron, not signal.
So much for that assumption. Peerless arrived at Infocomm as Peerless-AV and they brought the beginnings of their new lines to the show—an array of cables and their HD Flow 1080p wireless system which allows displays to be installed up to 131 feet away from sources. So Peerless is in the signal business too. The company will obviously have to earn their way into a new role in a market that lives and dies on moving signal reliably—whether wired or wireless. But I think it’s a great approach to staying relevant in our market; with the published specs and a $420 price tag, HD Flow is worth a look, along with the other new products.
