InfoComm Looks Forward: Five Trends Shaping the AV Industry

InfoComm, North America's largest audiovisual trade show for creative and technical professionals, welcomed more than 40,000 visitors and had nearly 1,000 exhibitors this year. With some of the latest technologies for display design, infrastructure, and audio at the show, the establishment challenged visitors to walk the floor and ask themselves "What Will You Create?" Here are some trends I noticed at the show that give a good idea of where the industry is headed.

Insights From InfoComm India

As I walked the floor I saw, for the most part, the same trends as I did at InfoComm in Orlando. The application that seemed to attract the most interest from attendees was video integration. Within this, interests ranged from looking at videoconferencing solutions, to displays, to mounting. Audio had a presence as well, but it was definitely a smaller focus compared to U.S. or European shows.

Touching Trends & Key Products from InfoComm '12

every flat-panel wants to grow up and be just like an iPad. Each of the key flat-panel manufacturers had on display their version of this (not so new) technology. However, what’s new is “multi-touch” (aka the iPad technology) is now being offered as an embedded or packaged solution for large display flat-panels. This technology is now affordable, and we can expect to see more multi-touch and annotation flat-panels in both the corporate workplace, and certainly educational facilities. The whiteboard’s job is in danger as the next generation of students will be raised on video display and touchscreen technologies.
