Amy Madden with Moki

Residential Market Manager Amy Madden with our favorite CEDIA visitor, Moki, from rep firm Bach Sales.

CEDIA 2017 in San Diego
The Draper booth at CEDIA was very busy throughout the show, thanks to a big growth of interest in shading solutions. We had several FlexShade Recharge battery shades in the booth, and controlled one of them with an Amazon Echo. The Recharge was very well received, and won an Excite! Award from Technology Integrator Magazine. Our newest TecVision formulation also won an Excite! Award. We showed a 172 inch CS1200-X ALR surface under heavy ambient lighting conditions, and it looked incredible. You can read our full CEDIA wrap-up here
