Canvys products available through Almo Professional A/V include small- and large-format NEC and Samsung LCDs with a variety of integrated touch screen options, privacy films and protective enclosures.
  • “Almo offers flat panels and other components for a digital signage installation, but through our relationship with Canvys we can now provide customized displays that are designed and engineered for a particular environment, audience or application,” said Sam Taylor, executive vice president and COO of Almo Professional A/V. “Working with Canvys allows our partners to be more competitive and creative with their installations.”
  • According to Harley Firth, vice president of Global Sales for Canvys, “Almo Professional A/V gives us the ability to reach customers in the channel where they are either implementing or soon will be implementing a digital signage installation.” He continued, “Like Canvys, Almo’s sales force is DSCE-certified, so they are trained on how to create and set up digital signage systems. Our combined strengths will help customers save time and receive the expert guidance they need throughout the life of their projects.”
  • Both companies are exhibiting at DSE 2010, Feb. 23-25, 2010 in Las Vegas, Nev.
