While the show floor for InfoComm14 doesn’t open until Wednesday, the audio department’s demo rooms are already in full blast—literally. Open a day early, 16 audio manufacturers open the doors to their customized demo rooms, where they give detailed presentations of their latest products, along with a demonstration of the sound these products produce.
Each company gives a demo every other hour (most likely to avoid bleed between the rooms), and walking down the hallway you can surely hear (and feel) the power of these sound systems.

In something of a rematch of the groundbreaking session at the NAB Cinema Summit in April, “Laser Illuminated Projectors: What’s New and When Will They Arrive?” Monday’s Display Summit at InfoComm saw a special High-lumen Laser projection session, the “Digital Cinema Laser Battle” with the same companies squaring off—and with the same implications for all large venue projection, not just cinema. But in slight shifting of chairs this time, the moderator was none other than digital cinema guru Michael Kargosian (perennially one of the key architects of the NAB Cinema Summit), with the NAB session’s moderator Bill Beck now wearing the Barco hat, while Christie’s Don Shaw and NEC’s Richard McPherson reprised their NAB shoot-out roles.
