Pantel in the Shower

Pantel water-proof displayDespite having a lousy position in North Hall (N7453), Pantel is still stopping passersby. The company’s weather-proof panels are only a year in production, so Pantel is a little less well-known. But that’s about to change.

It’s all about the water when you’re in the company’s miniscule booth (well, water and the live music funneling over from stage just yonder; it makes the water seem even flashier). The water that’s being sprayed on the company’s displays is a slick graphic, hence the stopping. And the water being sprayed on the mirror-like unit? That’s a water-proof display unit that’s going into Hard Rock Hotel showers. more…

Sanyo Press Conference

Sanyo PLC-XP200LSanyo really wanted to impress; somehow the four-piece orchestra didn’t seem to fit though, but it was a nice relaxing touch at the end of the day. After a delayed start and ironically multiple mic checks, the presentation got under way. Company VP Keiichi Yodoshi gave the storied history of the company’s projector timeline; Sanyo released its first projector model in 1989, and last year, the company released its first super-short-throw projector, with many milestone models sprinkled throughout. It really signified how far the company and the technology has come, and just where the company is headed: 8.8 million Sanyo units are projected to be sold in 2010, working from a steady 15 percent yearly increase average of projector market saturation the company has seen. more…

Audio-Technica rebrands

Audio-Technica ES905CLFor a company that made such a huge splash at last year’s InfoComm with its new SpectraPulse audioconferencing technology, it’s no surprise that for Audio-Technica, InfoComm 2008 is going to be a relatively quiet show – at least in terms of new product introductions. The company has completely redesigned its booth and recently made an effort toward uniform branding across all the markets it serves.

Dan Montecalvo, marketing manager with A-T, says the company’s been pleased with the rate of adoption of the high-end SpectraPulse system, which runs about $24,000 retail for a seven-channel conference room system.
