Are you excited about CEDIA17?

We’re counting down the final weeks leading up to the event, and we’ll have lots to show you!

CEDIA is our first opportunity to show off our corporate rebranding in this channel. Our new look created a lot of buzz at InfoComm earlier this summer, and we’re sure you’ll love it as well. We’re excited to share!

When you visit the Draper CEDIA booth #4429 this year, make sure you get scanned. We’re giving away an Amazon Echo, but you can only win if you have your badge scanned. We’re also giving visitors a coupon good for a free LED light kit for the Profile+, with the purchase of a Profile+.

Why are we giving away an Amazon Echo?  Because you can use it to control our FlexShade Recharge battery shade, and that’s exactly what we’ll be doing in the booth. No wiring is necessary with the Recharge. The rechargeable batteries last longer and are more powerful than those in other systems, and can be recharged from a 110V outlet or an optional solar panel. And, the FlexShade Recharge app can control or program the shades. Since the motor has bi-directional communication, the app even knows when it’s time to charge the battery.

We’ll also be showing you how it looks when a projection screen rejects 80% of ambient light. TecVision CS1200X ALR received two Best of awards at InfoComm 2017. It’s ideal for environments with high ambient lighting. The higher 1.2 gain grey will help brighten the image in sizes up to 67 feet wide. Just like the rest of Draper’s TecVision line, CS1200X ALR is 8K-ready and Imaging Science Foundation-certified for color accuracy, so users won’t notice the blue or red tints present in images on many other ambient light rejecting screens. In addition, the CS1200X ALR is available as a Nanoperf surface for acoustical transparency.

To see these great products, and for a chance to win an Amazon Echo, be sure to stop by booth #4229 at CEDIA 2017 this September in San Diego.


What can an AV manufacturer like Draper have in common with #HarryPotter? Quite a bit, as it happens!
