Furman loves Videos

Furman power managementStarted InfoComm 2008 this morning with a nice chat with Furman‘s marketing manager, John Benz (booth C3483). We got to talking about the often misunderstood world of power management, Furman’s stock in trade, and the company’s efforts to do something about that. John explains that companies like Furman compete with the antiquated notion that their products aren’t needed, as much as with direct competitors–”we mainly compete with the wall outlet,” is how he put it. Even many contractors, he says, are still having a hard time fully understanding the world of power management and control.

He then mentioned the variety of educational material the company supplies with each of its products and on its Web site, including a new series of AC Power Management videos to address these issues. (Check out www.furmansound.com/video.php) to see them. more…

Booths Powering Up

Here on the InfoComm exhibit floor, all the AC power swings down from the high ceiling on big cables and from the vantage point of the Penton booth N7649, I can look across the hall and see the AC cables swinging around and a few minutes later, the booths are lighting up. I’m anticipating new developments in the area of digital audio networks and I’m going to be watching for any new hardware that helps translate between any of the various proprietary protocols. There are a lot of them out there now so we’ll soon see if anyone comes up with any new stuff to help them talk to one another when necessary.

Last night I was given a demonstration at the Educators’ reception. It appears that Extron will have a big surprise for everyone in the area of control and system configuration software. I saw it work last night and as one who uses an Extron system to control and monitor several dozen classroom AV systems on a daily basis, I’m really excited about the possibilities. If it’s as good as this looks, I want to be one of the first “local gurus” on using it. This is one time I won’t mind being something of a lab rat!

Things are really picking up here now. The noise level is building a little and more people are showing up here at the Penton booth.
