ZURICH, SWITZERLAND and HUNGERFORD, UK,March 14, 2017 – Recognizing a need for Networked AV and 4K/HDR education within the custom electronics industry, RGB Communications, an audio-visual products distributor in Great Britain and Ireland, has selected Atlona as one of a small, select group of manufacturers prepared to address these two highly important AV business opportunities at the CEDIA Tech Forum on March 23.
