AVT Question: Please share your company's philosophy, vision, and product roadmap heading into InfoComm 2022. [June 2022]
InfoComm gives us an opportunity to demonstrate our mission: “Creating partnerships, designing and manufacturing innovative products with integrity, as we have since 1902.”
We’ll highlight all our product categories. In the projection area, we’ll be projecting under the bright lights using our newly patented, battery-operated Acumen Recharge with a TecVision ALR surface. We’re also upgrading our UL Listed Scissor Lift to accommodate bigger and brighter projectors.
This may be the first time some folks see our award-winning Foundation mount system for LED video walls. We think they will be impressed by its installer-friendly features.
We’re also bringing the Draper@Home window shade collection. We are partnering with Somfy, so all our indoor and outdoor shading solutions can be integrated into smart building systems. We’ll also show off our custom digital printing capability with some awesome new graphics on shade fabrics!
At this point, cool tech is a given, but at Draper our biggest strength is our people behind the tech. We’ve missed meeting everyone face to face. We’re excited to talk about what’s at the show, but also about what Draper is up to outside the show floor and how it benefits you!
