On the Road to InfoComm: Part 4 by Sue Horwitz

Publish date:

Today my fingers are walking through new and interesting (to me) websites. My husband teaches college-age students how to build websites. This makes me somewhat jaded when I am doing research online. A former marketer, I am really sensitive to what companies project about their mission, services, claims, etc. I find myself making decisions about whether or not I want to work with a firm based on what I read about them on their site, and then a quick Google on customer comments. Do you do that?

Anyway, here’s today list of newbies that I hope to check out at InfoComm.

Wave Ware

This TX based company delivers pagers, paging systems, LED signs, messaging software and “much more.” I found a handy product guide that helps users sort through options.


Monoprice is an e-commerce firm that will be connecting with us in person at InfoComm. High quality cables, adapters, networking, computer, and security supplies are shipped the same day, if you order by 2 p.m. PST. According to their site, we can shop with confidence for the "lowest price and solid warrantees."

Blue Jeans Network

They've been the media darling lately. And what’s not to like about a firm that claims to “democratize video conferencing and bring everyone a cloud-based video conferencing service that’s every bit as easy and affordable as audio conferencing”. It is fitting that this company is a Bay Area “Best Places to Work." They have case studies on the site for HR, Education, and Healthcare. They have a low-cost MCU alternative for multi-party video. If you are charged with developing a collaborative environment, check them out.

I haven’t confirmed this, but it looks like 170 new exhibitors will be brand new at this year's InfoComm. This means more products and services for AV/IT Tech Managers to store in their little black book of solutions for any problem. I am a bit of a research junkie so I thought perusing sites might help me uncover tre

On the Road Again

By Jimi Gonzalez My company recently started a new project that requires a fair amount of travel for my employees. While we’ve done some work out of the area in the past, this is the first time where we’ll be on “the road” for an extended period of time. I have no problem with jobs that involve travel, I’ve

Can’t We Part This Out?

by Danny Maland I have a number of secret and not-so-secret wishes in my life, and one of those wishes is to be able to talk to gear manufacturers. Sometimes I want to compliment people on products that have really been great performers, and sometimes I want to grumble about a design choice that I can’t quite ge
