The “All Wired Up” Russound RNET 2006 Tour will provide hands-on RNET training in 26 U.S. cities, allowing consumer electronics professionals to learn new skills locally, rather than having to take time out of busy schedules to travel.

RP Visual Solutions has moved to a larger facility at 1102 E. Washington Avenue in Santa Ana, Calif., in order to provide space for its new Visualization Demonstration Center (VDC).

The room will also be equipped with signal generators, display sources, light measurement tools, and test jigs for validating manufacturers' specifications and optics. Dealers can contact the company at (714) 550-7211 to book the VDC.
