Almo Professional A/V Ignites Imagination with Dynamic Art Gallery at InfoComm 2014
PHILADELPHIA — June 11, 2014 — For three days only, Almo Professional A/V (#C5830) is transforming its booth space at InfoComm 2014 into a dynamic Art Gallery. Called the Digital Canvas Collection, the space will feature 12 new exhibits and showcase stunning, original content to bring together the best of InfoComm and ignite the imagination of show attendees.
“We received such an overwhelming response to our Art Gallery last year that we kept the theme but updated the exhibits, which have catchy names such as ‘Tied Up in a Bow,’ ‘Grade on a Curve’ and ‘Bright on Track,’” said Melody Craigmyle, vice president of marketing for Almo Professional A/V. “New products from Barco, NEC, Peerless-AV, Samsung, Sharp Aquos, TouchSystems, Epson, Chief and much more are on display, with many of the exhibits showcasing content developed by Almo’s Content Creation Team. Our skilled Business Development and Account Managers will be stationed in the gallery to answer technical, product and installation questions. Additionally, we are running social media contests and giving away prizes non-stop throughout the show.”
Craigmyle noted that the Almo booth will also incorporate the following highlights:
• SecurityTronix. Almo’s first surveillance equipment distribution partner, SecurityTronix is a specialty manufacturer of electronics, hardware, cable and installation materials used in residential and commercial security installations. The Digital Canvas Collection will be monitored by SecurityTronix’s analog surveillance solutions, bullet, dome and pan tilt zoom cameras. The space will also be recorded real-time by the 4-channel HVR.
• ClearOne. Almo will have Spontania Cloud, the most powerful cloud service available, in its unified conference room. Spontania puts all the benefits of visual collaboration within reach while removing the barriers of complexity and high costs. The conference room will also feature ClearOne’s Room Roster product to show all scheduled meetings.
• Barco. Almo will feature the near-seamless freestanding OBPX video wall, which recently won the “Red Dot: Best of the Best” distinction.
• Content Creation Services. All the content for the Digital Canvas Collection has been created by Almo’s own Content Creation Services team. Attendees will see an array of artistic content for everything from video walls to single displays.
