Orlando, FL — NewBay Media’s AV Technology brand is pleased to announce its Best of Show winners at InfoComm International 2017. This Best of Show list, from an exhibition of thousands of solutions showcased by more than 950 manufacturers, represents outstanding achievements in product development. Nine AV professionals, including CTS-certified technology managers and AV/IT engineers, judged each product live on the show floor on Day One and Day Two of InfoComm.

“This year we have had an overwhelming response to our AV Technology Best of Show Awards with more single entries than any other year on record,” said Margot Douaihy, editorial director of AV Technology. “Our tech manager community looks not just for ‘the next new thing,’ but solutions that are intuitive, easy to use, versatile, feature-rich,  and reliable. ROI is also critical. We try to honor the perspective of tech managers who are tasked with finding products for their capital expense requests or lifecycle plans—solutions they can trust and stand behind."

The enthusiastic response to AV Technology’s Best of Show program represents a new focus on the end-user in the proAV conversation, according to Adam Goldstein, VP of NewBay Media. “Never has there been more market interest in reaching tech managers,” he said.

Sue Horwitz, publisher of AV Technology, was impressed by the diversity of new products at the show. “We’re seeing a lot of new iterations of technology from new exhibitors,” she said. “It’s an especially exciting time in AV/IT, and it reflects that we are going through another wave of technological innovation.”

“As we head into the AV/IT Leadership Summit in Denver in August, it’s clear that the conversion conversation is moving forward,” said Cindy Davis, contributing editor and event director, AV Technology.

Winning products will be covered in the post-InfoComm print and digital issues of AV Technology, an InfoComm eBook, and online throughout the coming months.
