Focused on Innovative Solutions
How can we help you with your tech needs? How can we more clearly communicate with you and provide the innovations you desire?
These are just a few of the soul-searching questions we’ve spent nearly a year asking ourselves as part of our rebranding effort. In all we do, in every innovation we create or problem we help solve, we put you first. As we continue to evolve and increasingly become a solution-based manufacturer, we realized that it was time we clarify our mission and refresh our relevancy to our customers’ needs.
At InfoComm in June, we unveiled a new look and logo that better reflects our developing focus on innovative solutions.
We also previewed our new website that has been met with rave reviews so far. The site won’t be fully functional and finished until early next year, but you can take a sneak peek by clicking here.
InfoComm was a time of big reveals as we also introduced a few new products. Two of our newest solutions hit it big at InfoComm. Our new ambient light rejecting viewing surface, TecVision CH1200X ALR, won two Best of InfoComm Awards. Sound & Vision Magazine and AV Technology both found CH1200X ALR’s ability to reject 80% of ambient light worthy of recognition. Our new battery powered shade was also honored. The FlexShade Recharge received a Best award from Commercial Integrator Magazine. The Recharge offers a quiet, wire-free alternative for motorized shades up to 12’ x 12’, and booth visitors loved the idea.
If you didn’t make it to InfoComm, you’ll have the chance to see TecVision CH1200X ALR and the FlexShade Recharge in our booth at CEDIA in early September.
