Burlington, MA – Last month, Easy Access Distribution – the New England chapter of Catalyst AV distribution network — hosted their 14th annual Emerging Technologies & Home Awareness Expo at the Billerica Courtyard by Marriott Hotel. In total, 170 local integrators attended the 2-day event.
Brands that exhibited their latest products and hosted training sessions included home awareness & energy management brand enerG, Atlonta, Bitwise, EnGenius, TiO, Luxul, TiVo, Clearview, RTI, Vanco, Vivitek, and more.
Each day Jeff Boccaccio presented on HDMI Rev. 2.0, addressing new features, how they benefit customers, uncovering the details of the new standard, how it will function and what changes exist in the transmission line. For each session, Boccaccio presented to a packed room of integrators that were extremely engaged, making for both enjoyable and informative sessions.
According to Steve Presti, principal of Easy Access Distribution and board member of Catalyst AV, the Catalyst group puts strong emphasis on educating integrators on emerging and complex technologies such as energy management, networking, media distribution and home control. “The Catalyst AV group has more events like this planned throughout the US in 2014,” says Presti.
