Again, believe it or not there is more to Yamaha at Infocomm than Mac. Two things off the show floor:
Speaker Demos at the LV Hilton Shimmer Cabaret daily on the hour between 10am and 3pm. Hear NEXO’s PSRS, GEO S8, RS18 and more in their natural habitat. On the half hour between 10:30 and 3:30 the LV Hilton Theater will fill with the sound of NEXO line arrays and RS18.
Not surprisingly, a Mac perched on a Yamaha sound reinforcement console steals a lot of booth focus.
However, the much-anticipated, well-received announcement of Mac-compatible versions of editors for the M7CL and L9 consoles was not the only Infocomm news from Yamaha Commercial Audio. A modest but important late-breaking announcement promises a regional expansion of the company’s highly succesful Yamaha Commercial Audio Training Seminars (YCATS) with the Audiovesity series of events, kicking off August 11-12 at Soundcheck, Nashville. The Audioversity series is free to audio pros and includes digital mixer training seminars, panel discussions, NEXO and Yamaha speaker demos, hands-on line array rigging demos, acoustic predication software presentations, and workshops on audio networking and portable sound among other things.
Yamaha will also offer attendees a chance to win one of two LS9-16 consoles. See www.audioversityexpo.com for more.
On the flight from BNA to DFW on Tuesday my seatmate asked if I was going to InfoComm. I was and assumed he was too since he knew of the show. Actually, no, the fellow, who specializes in HOW AV installs told me, he wasnâ€™t going this year because for the last two shows he said that the number and nature of new products was pretty slim. He wished me a good show. After day one, I wish he would have gone to the show. more…

Ok, that’s the marketing imagery–8G as a flaming projectile. But it definitely caught my eye. In fact, Crestron‘s blazing campaign was the first thing to jump out at me as I walked into Infocomm. The campaign is for the 8G upgrade to Crestron’s flagship Digital Media distribution system, which is news enough. But there is another piece of news that is far more potentially incendiary. The topline point is clear and potentially irresistable: Crestron has committed to a network grade server platform (it’s a managed network operating system) integrating Audio, Video, and Enviromental Systems/Building Management. The core is something called the “Power of 3″ and I’ll quote now: “the industry’s first centralized backbone that integrates AV, environmental systems, and global enterprise management.” Four years in the making and engineered, they say, from the ground up on an IT design rather than a traditional AV design. Its an AVOS.
Good idea, Batman. Or crazy.
This is exactly why Cisco wants into AV. I could get into David, Goliath, Don Quixote, etc. here, but I won’t because I haven’t been to the booth yet. It was on my list or course, but it is now, to beat the metaphor, a burning curiosity. I’ll get back to you.
In the meantime, if you’re here, visit InfoComm booth #C5203 or go to www.crestron.com/infocommnews.
Vaddio, the leading manufacturer and OEM distributor of specialty pan/tilt/zoom cameras and high-end camera control systems, will launch the Reveal In-wall PTZ Camera at InfoComm 2010, June 9 – 11 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
â€œAs a manufacturer of PTZ cameras we have seen a growing concern from architects and consultants over the aesthetics of electronics placed in conference rooms and meeting places,â€? explained President and CEO of Vaddio, Rob Sheeley. â€œAs flat screen technologies have made displays easier to install and blend into a wall, PTZ cameras are still being surface-mounted and as a result protrude out into the room. The Vaddio Reveal In-wall camera systems are designed to install the camera into the wall and have the same aesthetics as a flatscreen display.â€? Read on at The Briefing Room
