Booth 5473: Introducing the Atellio Family
Imagine a flexible and scalable sound system. Modularity, flexibility, and sustainability were the main criteria when starting the design process, and this is evident when you zoom in on the various product ranges. You can go for a centralized approach in which you choose one of AUDAC’s robust next-gen matrix systems that excel in ease of installation and flexibility of use. These matrix systems represent top-notch features and performance, which additional software licenses can further expand. This way, you don’t pay for features you might not need at first, but if the situation changes, you can quickly access them without making hardware investments.
But at the same time, AUDAC is telling you that you don’t need a centralized installation for some applications. AUDAC believes in making each product more intelligent and powerful than ever. Every element comes equipped with the necessary processing power and unique features making them perfect to be used as a solution. This way of working allows for more flexible solutions with fewer products yet enables AUDAC to cover a broader range of solutions with a more compact and sustainable product range. (Booth 5473)
Booth 1781: Nanolumens and Smart Monkeys partner to bring Display Control with NanoSuite, Powered by ISAAC
Nanolumens has partnered with Smart Monkeys to bring you NanoSuite, Powered by ISAAC. For designers and system integrators, NanoSuite offers a powerful tool to control, monitor, and manage complex display systems. This partnership with Nanolumens and Smart Monkeys brings years of expertise and knowledge of controlling displays with reliable solutions.
“We have worked alongside Smart Monkeys on several complex projects which made them the perfect partner to help us tackle broader display management issues that plague our partners. For years, the industry has struggled with controlling large display systems both from an infrastructure and operational standpoint. When we designed NanoSuite we started by taking everything our partners loved and hated about managing displays and used that as the roadmap for development. The result is a tiered data approach that gives users the ability to monitor their Nanolumens display performance, control, and schedule displays, manage content, review historical performance, and troubleshoot from the single interface in a staggered way. This development provides system integrators a way to keep their NOCs clean and actionable but gain a significant amount of troubleshooting and response capability.,” says Brice McPheeters, Vice President of Product & Planning for Nanolumens. (Booth 1781)
Booth 4107: Marshall’s Compact 4K60 Camera, Now With NDI
Now with the latest NDI|HX3 codec, this Marshall camera announced May 23rd can be seamlessly incorporated into various streaming and production workflows. The CV420Ne is suitable for professional proAV and broadcast applications including AV streaming, remote contribution, podcasting, video collaboration and a range of proAV and UCC installations that require an ultra-high-quality networkable video source.
The new NDI|HX3 format requires slightly higher bandwidth than the previous NDI|HX2 but much less than is required for Full-NDI|HB. NDI|HX3 delivers similar low latency as Full-NDI at less than 100ms end-to-end and has video quality performance closer to premium Full-NDI where video quality is not lost from the camera source when sent over the network. Marshall will be showcasing this new addition to its camera lineup at InfoComm 2023 (Booth 4107).

Chapin Theater and Booth 5751: L-Acoustics Reveals Exciting InfoComm Plans
As announced this week, topping the lineup of new offerings is the L-Acoustics L Series line source array, which visitors can experience in the 2,643-seat Linda W. Chapin Theater (Room W320, Level 3) of the Orange County Convention Center. With its patented Progressive Ultra-Dense Line Source (PULS) technology, L Series comprises two elements designed to work together or independently: L2 above and L2D below. One L2 or L2D element provides the same contour as four K2 elements in a format that is 46% smaller and 40% lighter.
Also being demoed at the Chapin Theater and shown on stand 5751 is the company’s new LA7.16 amplified controller. Following last year’s launch of the L-Acoustics LA7.16i for the installation market comes its sibling for the road. Delivering supreme flexibility to meet real-time power needs, the new model offers a level of efficiency and sustainability unheard of in modern touring applications.
